This is good news. Isn’t that feeling of accomplishment wonderful? I hope to feel some of that in regard to my own book soon.

 

Guarded Optimism

I almost hate to say anything here, for fear of jinxing it… but for what it’s worth, the last six weeks or so have been the most productive period I’ve had on A DANCE WITH DRAGONS in… well… a year at least, maybe several. In the last three days I’ve completed three new chapters. Not from scratch, mind you, these were all chapters that had been partially written, and in some cases rewritten, for months if not years. But they’re finally done, and I’ve just reread them, and I’m almost convinced that they’re Not Crap.

We’ll see how I feel tomorrow.

Dear Nathan,

I’m sorry to hear you didn’t get the part. That would have rocked. Don’t worry about me though. I’ll be happy to see Ryan Reynolds play Green Lantern, especially since it means it won’t be interfering with you playing Castle.

Between getting firing, job hunting, getting hired, training, adjusting to my new job, and the general tunnel vision I’ve had for New Moon, July somehow snuck up on me. My friend asked last week if Harry Potter comes out this week or next. I must have looked at him so strangely. I thought, “He’s crazy! It doesn’t come out until…Merlin’s Pants! It’s July 1st!” I saw the latest trailer in the theater. I still have such high hopes. It really looks like it will be spectacular.

You searched: ‘forks harry potter’ .  Um, what? Are you looking for Rob?

You searched: bella swan porne .  I know who you are! Don’t think adding that fancy ‘e’ on the end will fool me.

Thanks to StephenieMeyer.com and Caroolee7 I have seen the New Moon trailer. Thank you, really!

Hana has been coming up quite a bit in my Searches, so I thought maybe it was time to revisit this topic. Some time ago I posted about Hana Pestle and her Need (get it?) to find her way onto the New Moon soundtrack. She has a sort of Tori Amos/Alanis Morissette sort of sound. Her song is beautiful and fits New Moon perfectly. I still think it’s a great fit for the scene in the forest after Edward leaves, but others on Hana’s MySpace page proposed it for the “blank pages”. That’s a great idea! I could see a montage of Bella walking around like a zombie with this playing over it. It would really make the audience feel the emptiness of that period of Bella’s life.

Has anyone heard anything new about the soundtrack? I don’t see anything online, myself. Until we hear anything, there’s always SMeyer’s playlist.

New Moon location shooting in Montepulciano (serving as Volterra), Italy are about to begin. The pictures I’m seeing online remind me to my own trip to Italy a few years ago, when our tour stopped briefly in Perugia.
