Word Count Wednesday -- April 19th, 2017
What Have I Been Working On?
I have had more free time lately, but I'm still not getting back to work on my novel or the play. I've gotten distracted by a children's book idea.
Here's the thing. It takes a LONG time to write a full-length play and an EVEN LONGER TIME to write a novel. But a picture book can be conceived and created in less than a week. So, it's very tempting to forgo the big uncertain projects and return to my comfort zone: the Picture Book.
So that's what I've been doing. Haven't finished anything new, but I've had several good ideas and just as many false starts.

How Do I Feel About the Process?
Mixed feelings. I'm trying to write more stories from a child's perspective -- and it's proving more challenging than I'd imagined. I used to be good at this POV... Where's my inner child when I need him most???
What Am I Reading?
Speaking of my inner child... I've been reading old Spider Man comics.
Also... I am about halfway through Stephen King's Eyes of the Dragon.
What Am I Watching?
I recently binge-watched two seasons of Better Call Saul. I have to say, I loved returning to the world of Breaking Bad -- and I never imagined I would have such sympathy for a low-life lawyer named Jimmy McGill.
