Early morning blog

I’m doing a different shift at work today, meaning I’ve already been here an hour and a half.  I hate mornings.  But it means I get to leave early – 4.30pm early.  Nice, very nice.

Nothing much happens this early so I’ve been doing some stuff on ‘Holiday’.  I’ve written about 400 words on one scene and put all my different word documents on ‘Holiday’ in one folder.  I thought I’d written more than I have – a couple of scenes I thought were written are actually just in note form.  Damn.  Before I started writing today I had 6464 words.  Although as some of them are in note form maybe that doesn’t count.  Today’s plan is to finish at least this scene and maybe make a start on the other one that is just notes.  I may not have time to do it all, today looks like it might be busy here at work.  Not fair.

I started watching the new TV series Flash Forward last week.  I’m really enjoying it (episode two was last night).  I enjoyed it so much that I was looking on the internet for info about it and stumbled on to the fact it is based on a book of the same name by Robert J Sawyer.  As I love reading so much, I thought I’d have a look at the book and maybe decide if I should get it so I can find out what’s going on.  So I found it on Amazon, looked at the synopsis and it explained what’s happening in the TV programme – explains the big mystery.  So know I know.  I’ve wrecked the TV show for myself all for my love of reading.  At least this means I now get to read the book without an internal debate with myself about whether I want to do this or not.  Also means I’ve found a new author who’s books I’d like to read.
