IWSG and Lucky Literacy Night

Click here to find out more and to see a list of other IWSG blogs.
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!

Do we writers suffer from multiple personalities? I ask because sometimes I feel like there are two people living inside me.

Neither will leave me alone.

When I purposely try to take a break from writing, I get edgy. When I get the idea for a story that grabs me, I can't not write it. The characters scream to be made real, to be given life outside of my head.

Another voice is telling me all that time that I'm fooling myself to think I can do this, that I should just quit. It's not like there aren't plenty of other authors out there. No one would care.

I could just go quietly into the night and play lots of StarCraft and League of Legends. Trade one hobby for another.

All these voices in my head.

Fighting it out.

Am I nuts?

On St. Paddy's Day, I'm part of a book signing event. Obviously, I was listening to one voice when I agreed to do it. Kind of excited to spend time with these peeps. They're a fun group. We're having a Rafflecopter giveaway for people who can't come.

Monday Meanderings - March 2nd

First Meandering - books I read in February ...

Here are the books I finished in February.

Second Meandering - books I'm reading right now ...

What am I reading right now? Actually three books at once. Two are audiobooks -- I'll explain.

Larry's books are always high action. I love the characterizations and the dark humor, but the action wears me out. Add in that right now he's got super beings going up against each other and it's become action overload for me. For example, one fight scene took twenty minutes to listen to.

That's twenty minutes of two guys beating the crap out of each other.

This is the second break I've had to take with this book. Love the series, but I can't get through the books anymore without breaks. I have about three hours to go to finish.

So I listened to Legion: Skin Deep (see my February list) and now I'm listening to this one. What do I think? I'm still at the beginning. It's SciFi and I love that YA is now getting into SciFi.

The third is an ebook. It's the first in Julie Bellon's Hostage Negotiator series. Started with a bang and is moving right along.

Third Meandering - movies we saw this weekend ...

Finally made it to the theater last week. Saw TWO movies even. One was Jupiter Ascending. Um ... Since I was already on action overload from Nemesis that wasn't the best choice for me. What can I say? Hubby picked.

And talk about a disjointed film. It couldn't seem to make up its mind what it wanted to be. Lots of plot holes.

Then we finally saw The Hobbit 3. It was okay, but I can see why my daughter hated it. There were also plot holes galore, especially in places where stuff might have been edited out--but not completely--so the point of showing something was removed. Jackson had a problem with that kind of thing with King Kong too.

It's a case of - So, why are you showing me this since you didn't do anything with it?

Seeing the movie once was plenty. It won't be one I'll buy.

Fourth Meandering - oral surgery ...

I'm having the implant surgery done tomorrow that I had to put off last month because I was sick. Ugh. Not looking forward to this.

What did you do this weekend?
