Between work and holiday excitement--baking, decorating, cutting down a Christmas tree, family coming into town, baking some more, Christmas shopping, kids not being able to sit still, wrapping presents, baking more and more, and all the mundane day-to-day tasks--there just hasn't been time to write. *sigh* I feel so unaccomplished; however, I keep moving forward. Just write something everyday, right?
Then, there's the blow to my character's persona. Nick Bateman. Do you know how hard it is, and time consuming, to scour the internet, searching for a face that's similar to the one in your head? I already visualized and described my characters before, on a "I need to do something else today," I decided to kill time and look for visual representations to base my characters on. Not knowing who Bateman was, I picked him, finding the PERFECT representation of my Noah. Now, it seems like I see him EVERYWHERE! So, now I must scour more pics via Google images to find another to represent my Noah. I just don't like being a cliche.
That's all for now. Merry Christmas!
