I started doing something today that I have never done before, but have seen other people talk about before: I started making a play list for my characters for this latest new exciting story. Maybe it was something to do with the fact that I didn't want to edit my essay anymore. There just suddenly seemed loads of songs that I thought, yes, that is that character. Which is all very exciting.
This week is a busy one; I have an essay due in, it's my birthday, and the annual MethAng musical, which means lots of last minute rehearsals and line learning! I had my family down over the weekend, which is why I didn't blog, which was lovely - although my brother said he'd somehow managed to find my blog (hey btw....) which was kinda ironic after my post about keeping worlds separate. Oh well. I both dread and look forward to this week. More look forward to I think. Last year I got ill and I've got my fingers crossed that it won't happen again... which is why I should go to bed now.
Although it's a bit of a last minute panic in some respects, I'm really looking forward to the musical - which isn't actually a musical anymore - this weekend. We seem to have taken our characters a bit too much to heart, and as we wrote the parts for ourselves, we kinda are becoming our characters. Although none of us are actors really, and we just do this every year to raise money for charity; a tradition that has been passed down through the society and never stopped, we all enjoy it and it is such good fun - when will I ever get a chance to do anything like that again? And, in a sad way, it makes me think that this is sort of what it must be like to be part of something like Team Starkid. We are all so close anyway, it's great fun, and it's brilliant to be able to be part of something so creative and fun. We did spend a few hours in the pub this evening however, basically being our characters and discussing back story and stuff..... and we keep automatically calling each other by our character names; alright until you know that they are the four horsemen of the apocalypse,and we're addressing one another as 'Death', 'War', 'Famine' and 'Conquest'... what other people must think.
Anyway, away from the point, not that I really had a point to this.
Writing wise I am still writing this new idea, although I am now feeling that I need to go back to my other projects and edit, although ideas are still swirling round my mind, there are some things I really need to sort out with that idea. Weirdly I find it easier to start and then go back and plan the rest. Or something like that anyway.
I need to finish that song play list as well....
But right now I need to sleep.
