K is home for spring break and we are doing a spring cleaning of sorts so everything is chaotic — more than usual — around here. I crave routine and I don’t got it.
I haven’t written anything new in a while. We’ve been busy with house stuff — yay! plumbers! — and my attention has been elsewhere. At first I felt guilty, then I gave myself permission to just let it slack. Although I’m a proponent of write every day, writers get stale just like everyone else. So although I’m editing stuff, I’m not writing new.
Now though, a new project is starting to niggle at me. Plot points, characters, setting — it’s all whispering. I’m getting that ooh! feeling when the storytelling falls into place. When I sit down to write finally I think I can get back into the groove of wooing the muse and getting my muscles back.
The zombie portion of this post is that we watched Dawn of the Dead last night. I knew that Shaun of the Dead was a homage to the zombie genre. The Shaun people also borrowed the cheery little theme music, which I hadn’t known til last night. I love Dawn of the Dead. It has layers.
