Last week wasn’t huge for the WIP because of a couple of unexpected things that came up, but it wasn’t entirely bad, either. Saw this mug online somewhere and thought it was pretty cool and kind of accurate. Also, red wine works.
If you guys know me or read this blog regularly, you know I’m a fan of The Walking Dead and Fear the Walking Dead. I’ve always thought the writing was outstanding, compelling, edgy, and occasionally wildly creative – more so on TWD then FTWD. But last week while watching the latest episode of FTWD, I found myself yelling at the TV over how a life-threatening situation was handled that two characters found themselves in. Picture this – a howling, severe storm outside, one adult female and one female teenager trapped in a rapidly flooding basement. They try the door leading outside – chained shut. The windows – too narrow to break or fit through. They’re standing on boxes, the water up to their shoulders, and instead of looking for an axe, a saw, bolt cutter – anything that could help them escape – THEY DISCUSS THEIR FEELINGS. Are you kidding me?!!! I guarantee you, if Rick and Daryl had been in the same situation, there wouldn’t have been any tender, heartfelt moments shared between them. At that point, I was drowning – in disappointment, disgust, anger – and would have happily fed them to the zombies myself.
I still have a few slots open for October’s Bad Moon Rising featuring horror/thriller/paranormal authors. Details here.
Have a great week!
