|Why you gotta go rifling through my stuff???|
As you may have read in my last journal entry, I've recently discovered a rather debilitating obsession with BBC's Sherlock - to the point where I have all but demanded my poor husband get me all three seasons on DVD for my birthday next week. I mean really, the show is addictive and funny and suspenseful, and when they say that brainy is the new sexy oh MAN did they nail it here! I mean, WOW... fangirling up a storm over here. Good lord is that snarky bastard hot!
That being said... I'm having a little trouble pulling myself back into Fable. I'm really trying - really! It's just that he (Sherlock) is such a bad boy and I can't stop this effing swooning!
I still have my plot for OGaH down, and I have every intention of carrying on. It's there in print in my idea journal, and more details for the storyline and its progression are scratched into my little book daily. It's just the actual characterization I'm having trouble with. Ben and Sherlock are so totally different, and I couldn't bear doing Ben a disservice like writing him poorly. He's a very near and dear character to me as well. And as the story is told from Ben's perspective it is vital that I get out of Sherlock's head and back into Ben's before I start writing (if that makes any sense at all.)
Just please give me a bit to get over Sherlock. It shouldn't be hard - once I have the DVDs I can obsess to my heart's content - and if my husband doesn't get them for me I'm treating myself! LOL!
I never intended to get so wrapped up into a television show. It was just something we popped on the TV one night while I was feeling really depressed and apathetic. Then BAM! Sherlock and John meet for the first time and my head went spinning.
If you haven't watched it yet, and are open to developing a new unhealthy obsession, I highly - HIGHLY - recommend it! The first two seasons are on Netflix and I streamed the third season on www.pbs.org. Episode one of season three: video.pbs.org/video/2365150373…
I'm a writer first, and once upon a time I was one helluva wiz with pencils, pastels and acrylics. Alas, I've neglected the latter talents in favor of real life, though I hope one day to pick them up again. Writing is my passion, though it was not always my strongest skill (and is still in the refining process.) I'll quit that when I'm dead... maybe. ;o)|
You can also find me on fanfiction.net where I'm still Lourdes23. I've got a bit more posted there, but much of it is years old and nowhere close to the standards I now hold myself to.
I've copied my favorite pieces here though.
I also post photographs I take which I find appealing, though I wouldn't call myself a photographer, or even a hobbyist. My camera is older, my skills are remedial and there are many times in which I am scolded by family for not taking enough pictures at special events. But I can appreciate lovely scenery, so if I catch a lucky shot I'll share it with the class.
