Happy New Year!

Okay, so I’m late. Again.

I really meant to get back to this sooner, but I had interviews, and family things, and none of that really matters. I need to do better, and that’s one of the things I am going to do my best to do this year.

So, over the past few weeks, I’ve finished my first editorial pass on my novel, and I just recently finished my second draft. It’s all very exciting, and I feel all the pieces slowly fitting together in a way that just excites me. I know I have a lot more work ahead of me, but I feel reasonably assured that I could publish sometime this year. That’s the goal, and funny enough, my New Year’s Resolution.

I’m saddened by the fact that all my favorite TV shows are mostly on hiatus until after the Olympics. The two “cliffhangers” that have me antsy the most are actually Once Upon a Time and Grey’s Anatomy (my favorite guilty pleasure show). I’m eager to see what the creative minds behind Once Upon a Time will 129300_8231have done with The Enchanted Forest, more than just bring the Wicked Witch there. Are they going to tie in Ginnifer Goodwin’s pregnancy? Are the Ogres still a problem, as was hinted last season? Is Robert Carlyle truly gone from the cast? (I will say that I think they managed to deftly handle the aging of Henry, for now. It could become problematic again if they don’t keep time moving at a good pace.) Plus, Hook. I always need more Hook on my screen.

Grey’s Anatomy though, I’m dying to find out what happened between Jackson Avery and April Kepner. I wanted to smack Jackson for doing that to her, mind you. Don’t get me wrong. I liked Jackson and April when they first got together, but the last year of their relationship has been a constant, “No, I can’t be with you!” from one or the other. Then they introduced Matt, who is adorable and perfect for April. He truly is. He’s going to be the one hurt most from all of this, which is a shame. A pure, unadulterated shame, because I don’t think he’d hurt April, and I think she does love him. (But the obvious writing is that the wedding won’t happen. She might not choose Jackson, but the wedding won’t happen. Prove me wrong, Grey’s!)

HoJosh-Holloway-Intelligencewever, in the interim, I will have a new show on CBS to ogle, er, watch. Josh Holloway, the devastatingly good-looking actor who portrayed conman Sawyer on Lost, is now playing a Chuck-esque role in Intelligence. Plus, it has Red/Ruby from Once Upon a Time. I shall be tuning in to see if that show is worth more than just its eye candy.

That’s it for today. I have a writing-related thoughtful post to come on Points of Views in a novel. For now though, thoughts, questions, comments, leave them here!
