Other than this blog post, I have three things on my brain today: rewriting my novel, going to see the new Robin Hood movie tomorrow, and spending a few days on Martha’s Vineyard next week.
My novel’s rewrite is coming along wonderfully, with the help of some terrific (and thought-provoking) exercises in the Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook by Donald Maass. As with all renovations, my novel looks a mess right now. But I know what it will look like soon and it’s going to be gorgeous!
I can’t wait to see the new movie with Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett. I am a Robin Hood addict. It began at age 5 with Disney’s animated version, and grew into an obsession with all things medieval. And it’s all because of an animated fox.
I am also trying to get my ducks in a row to head off to Martha’s Vineyard next week. Despite growing up in central Massachusetts, I’ve never visited the Vineyard so I’m excited to explore new territory.
