Figured I should try to keep track of what I’m doing somewhere.
Switching to third person was the right choice. 3748 words today, boosting me to just over 27,000 words. I may write a little more before going to bed. Am attempting a sex scene, so of course wine is involved.
Still not sure if I’m just going to stick to one POV protagonist (the heroine) or add others now that those doors have been opened. For now, the heroine is doing most of the talking and I’m okay with that.
In other news, I discovered Starship Troopers 3: Marauder on Netflix. Now, I was generally aware that there had been a Starship Troopers sequel years ago, but I didn’t realize there was a third installment. I checked it out…and oh, Johnny Rico, you have aged very well, but you still can’t act for crap. Casper Van D clearly isn’t trying in this one – at least in the original he made an effort. Here, he’s just like “Behold my rugged good looks!” Which would be fine, if he didn’t have to talk. I think he’d make a great strong, silent type.
I turned it off less than halfway through because the heroine’s ultra-inflated lips bugged the crap out of me. I am not against collagen injections (or whatever she clearly got) if they make you feel better about yourself, but seriously, the damn things took up half her face. No thanks.
Definitely bedtime for me. Cheerio, old chaps.
