Things that are distracting me this week…

Galavant on ABC. With music by Alan Menken, a pretty cast, and hilarious lyrics and one-liners, this irreverent cross between Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Once Upon a Time is not to be missed by musical fans! And we Psych and Supernatural fans get the bonus of Timothy Ormundson as the bad King Richard. He sings, he dances, he hugs. ‘Nuff said!
More TV. Josh Gates from Destination Truth returns in a new Travel Channel show called Expedition Unknown! If you don’t know him, you should. I love his tongue in cheek sense of humor. I wrote a ode to his old show Destination Truth (too ten reasons you should watch Destination Truth) and I listed him twice.
Still more TV. (I think we know what my Kryptonite is) American Haunting on Amazon Prime. This, new to me, ghost show fits the low bar I’ve set. It’s about ghosts, but the first episode was very satisfying, as instead of just investigating and leaving the family to their haunted life, they end up ghost free.
Edits for my new YA Fantasy Romance HALFLING. Technically, since this is my actual work, it’s not a distraction, but it’s certainly concerning me. I actually love this part. Unfortunately, I love it a little too much and spend waaay too long thinking of the perfect word, simile, or metaphor! 🙂

What’s distracting you this week?

  1. Way to go, Karin! The boys (kitties) undecorating the Christmas tree, after being good for a week, have distracted my last three nights of editing, when they’re not fighting for space on my lap (and trying to push my keyboard off my lap). This makes for some slower-than-usual editing; plus I find myself totally rewriting chapter 12, now that the voices of my writing group remind me to “put it in scene,” “keep it tight third person,” “describe it–they can’t see the movie playing in your head,” and more!

    1. I have pets fighting for my lap, but the forty pound vizsla and the twenty pound basenji make my tread desk seem safer. Happy editing!
