F*** the sailboat

January 27, 2010 at 9:50 am (Virtual Gems)


I was never able to see the sailboat in those 3-D posters that were such the rage some years back, but that’s okay. My characters have finally popped out of the background to become complex, crunchy, flesh and blood, dark and twisty hopeless cases. And it’s gray and rainy.

Dang, it’s a beautiful day.

    Okay, I had to laugh at that clip. I have never seen this film but I have looked at those 3-D optical illusion posters and things. My little elementary students used to love them. 🙂

    WAY better than seeing the sailboat or the Statue of Liberty or the race car, however, is when a novel comes to life. What a great metaphor for that experience! Go, you!! And enjoy the storms, my friend.

    Go for it, I’m glad your characters are popping! Who needs a crummy old schooner anyway?

    I’m so happy things are coming to life for you! What a great feeling. Happy writing!

    Marilyn–thanks! The rain has really helped, so it’s been a great re-start. Can’t wait to see how it ends up! 🙂

    Montana–nope, not me! Not a scooner, not a sailboat! 😉

    Robin–and happy query crafting to you. Let’s both have pink ribbons this July, shall we? 😀

    Yes! Thank you! F*** the sailboat! UGH. Those things drove me insane. And congrats on the fleshed out characters. I, too, find the rain an inspiration.
