That title literally came from the loading screen at WordPress…and I loved it so I went with it.
Also, it reminds me of this stunning gif of Steve Buscemi, who I adore. I think he’s the cutest thing ever, and don’t you dare contradict me. Also, he’s a boss actor.
Anyways, I missed last week’s post, and I missed my 5k mark. I’m a bad, bad writer. I was out traveling, and that just kills the groove sometimes. But good news! This weekend, I have all the time in the world. I’m shooting for 7-10k.
On the bright side, I did finally nail down the name for my hero (though, hero isn’t the word I’d use to describe him, really). Captain Fenrir Themis, named after the Norse hellhound. Yes, there’s a point. There’s usually always a point to everything when I write. I’m the sort of person who writes things with 50 different layers to it. I’m that neurotic. I’m the writer your English teacher thinks every writer is. I can’t help myself. It’s just all got to be steeped in symbolism.
I do finally have a grasp on him. I’ve been wrestling with his character for weeks. I finally tackled him…he’s a bit of Chris Pratt as Starlord, Han Solo, and an 80’s rocker all in one. I’m starting to realize how much this thing is being influenced by the 80’s… There’s a lot of neon. I blame my parents. And the fact that Blade Runner is my favorite movie of all time. ALL TIME.
So, another thing I’ve been thinking is doing bi-weekly posts… I know, I know, I was awful and forgot last week’s… but this would be a short post, mostly pictures, of things that inspire me that week. If you’re actually reading this, and have input, let me know.
I’m cutting this short because I’m watching Back to the Future, all 3 of them, and it’s October 21, 2015…so I gotta. Speaking of SciFi and all…
