My local Blockbuster is going out of business and my friend made the terrible mistake of taking me there. Ten movies later... I am now the proud owner of "Secret of Nihm," "Road to El Dorado," "All Dogs Go to Heaven," "The Ghost and the Darkness," (I am thoroughly convinced I am the only person in the world who likes that movie, and that includes the actors.) "Star Trek," "Goodnight and Good Luck," "Frost/Nixon," "Ironman," "House of the Flying Daggers" and "Hot Fuzz." I think that's all of them.
We also watched "Hot Tub Time Machine," "The Wolfman" and "The Crazies." Of course, I had to point out the logistical inconsistencies with the latter. "Wolfman" was decent but not quite the werewolf movie I'm looking for. I also hacked off my hair and dyed it red because sometimes this is what I do with my money.
There were fireworks last night, but they were interrupted by a vicious fight I got into with my sister after learning she brought yet another pitbull into my father's house: a 9-week-old female puppy. I think the dumbass plans to breed her with our other pit when she's old enough. We still lack a fence, and she still believes it's fine if she just chains them up outside on the occasion. She also doesn't comprehend that a townhouse is not a fair place to house pits. But what do I know?
Time to catch up on the meme!( 30 Days of Writing Meme )5. By age, who is your youngest character? Oldest? How about “youngest” and “oldest” in terms of when you created them?
Youngest is Romulus, the 11-year-old werewolf hybrid of "Heritage." Oldest would be either Evangel or Damien. I get the two of them confused because they might be the same age. They're angels or spirits of something like that and have been around since the beginning in "Psychosis." Oldest in terms of creation is Ty since he was around for the Sailormoon fanfic thing. Youngest in terms of creation is probably the newest incarnation of Randi, San's guardian in "Heritage."6. Where are you most comfortable writing? At what time of day? Computer or good ol' pen and paper?
I'm most comfortable writing in my room, usually around 6-7 p.m. because it's the best time for collecting my thoughts. I do a lot of dialogue writing throughout the day with a notepad and pen. In college, I used to do scene-writing in a notepad outside or in between classes. Now, most of my writing is done in front of the computer. It's also the best place for listening to writing music and acting out scenes, as I am wont to do.7. Do you listen to music while you write? What kind? Are there any songs you like to relate/apply to your characters?
I'm a big fan of background music. I used to listen to a lot of Gravitation themes, the softer Evanescence/Within Temptation tracks, Gankutusuou themes, Balto themes and Wolf's Rain themes. Lucian/Dominic typically get the angry tracks, San gets the mystical tracks and "Where Will You Go" is my theme for the Dominic/Lucian/Erik trio. "Breaking the Habit" is my general "Psychosis" music. I'd do more, but I'm lazy right now.
