movies & metrics

Ted and I went to see “Street Kings” today, which was not only a surprisingly good movie, but Keanu Reeves was surprisingly good *in* it. There were only a couple of “whoa” or “dude” kinds of moments, and one of them was very nearly on purpose, I think. I’d say that was hands down the best Reeves movie I’ve ever seen, and hell, I /like/ him. (Generally I think he’s actually a hell of a physical actor, which is why he did so well in the Matrix movies: they didn’t require him to talk a lot, and delivering lines is not his strong point. But damn, “Street Kings” was *good*!)

I informed myself this morning that I would write between 9am and 1pm, and whatever I wrote in that time would simply be enough. I wrote 4200 words. I think my brain is somehow outsmarting me.

*Man* I have ComicCon envy. NYCC is sounding awesome from everybody’s posts. *flings self in a pit, dramatically* :)

  1. I don’t know how you’ve written 172k words this year. That’s amazing! But while you may be tired, I’ll be grateful. Looks like I’m off to B&N to buy _House of Cards_ today. I love Margrit & Alban!

  2. Through sheer dogged determination. :) And YAY! for buying HOUSE OF CARDS! Thank you! :)

  3. I am not sure I would have wanted to be in NY last weekend with all of the hooplah surrounding the Pope’s visit. It might have been too much of a good thing.

    Did that help?


  4. Thank you! _House of Cards_ was wonderful! Too bad I can read in a day what it takes you months to write. I’ll be looking for _Hands of Flame_ when it comes out.


  5. Tine–*laughs* Yes! Yes, that helped. O.O :)

    Adrianne–*laughs* That *is* the problem, isn’t it? It takes sooooo much longer to write a book than read one! I’m glad you liked it, though! I think you’ll like HoF too. :)
