Well, here it is, Friday, and I’ve got nothing lined up.
So, if you’re not into boring, go check out Al Bruno III‘s blog about things he’s found interesting ’round the blogosphere.
I haven’t had a single nibble on the job front since last week’s interview. I don’t know if that means anything, but it does mean I’m one week closer to running out of unemployment insurance. I may be able to get an emergency extension, but I can’t tell yet. The application will automatically be filed, if I understand things correctly. If you’re the praying type, we can sure use your prayers now. And know we’ll be praying for you.
In the interim, I just sat through a movie on FEARnet OnDemand called The Baby’s Room. It was a Spanish movie – both in origin and language – subtitled in English, and I have to say, it was a unique one. I enjoyed it thoroughly. It was rated 7 out of 10 by some movie rating thingy, but for me, I give it an 8. I think the acting was superb, but the subtitles could’ve used a little polishing. I found missing words and incorrect (if not literal) translations, and would’ve fixed them for a small fee had I been asked. The plot was predictable, but which ones aren’t? The execution was carried to the last moment of the movie, and the final scene was poignant. Very good overall. Like I said, it’s an 8 to me, and it’s one of the only horror movies I’ve seen lately which I felt satisfied me. In addition, it was only 77 minutes long. And that was perfect.
Let’s see, what else? Hm. Oh! I know. I’ve done absolutely no writing here for a long time. I’m ready to burst. I’ve been in a dry spell for months – ask my bud Sherri about what we think of as true writer’s block and she’ll tell ya, we gots it – and it’s driving me nuts.
I’m still trying to get the hang – and the point – of social media like Twitter. It’s not all that social and I’m not really in a position to market anything right now, so what the heck am I supposed to be doing with it?
I’ve managed to get a chapter or two of Ghost Hunters (my novel, not the TV show) edited this week, and I’m shooting for at least three more this weekend. I really can’t keep letting myself off the hook with excuses, or it’ll never get finished. So that’s my goal. We’ll see come Monday how I did.
Other than that, things are status quo here. Not much else to tell, gang; I’m boring as ever.
God bless, everyone; have a great weekend.
