I’m not big on moving, haven’t been since the ’70s. Well everything is moved, but not unpacked yet. Other than having the drawing table in the right place all else is lost in the turmoil. But hey I said I’d be back.
Working on some writing for a May submission, got some stuff on the drawing table needs to be ready for June. Summer is coming, trying to line up some showings, we’ll see. Now if I could just find my pen and pencils.
Well all I’ve got in art is that we had to check that the computers are all working. So we dug out the DaVinci Code DVD. Without getting into the politics I found it was quite a good movie. I am of course highly prejudiced in that I think Tom Hanks is an incredible actor and Ron Howard is an incredible director. That said, it boils down to a well directed, well acted vision of an interesting story.
Dan Brown has a good formula. Pick a subject that is not easily penetrated due to remote location, unaccessability, lost in history, etc. Set up a psycho, but don’t let on it’s the main man. Make it all happen in a short timeframe. If this is even moderatly well written it can be a rollercoaster page turner; and being compressed time makes it perfect for movie rights. I should try this, not this week though.
Not only does moving scramble your possesions, but it can shake loose something out of your past. Just got an email from a young lady I knew; well she was a young lady when I knew her, and there has been a bit of time passed since then. Hello Kathleen.
