The writing advice goes like this: Drop the manuscript in the drawer and come back to it in a month to see what needs to be changed.
Of course it would help if the manuscript was finished.
I came back from Emerald City Comic Con having not touched Weaver for a week except to read it on the plane and decided to listen to my gut and cut Chapters 9-13.
And change the last page of Chapter 8.
Why change it?
It was 4 chapters of building up already established characters with a slow built to revealing a villian that sorta worked even if Melinda was part of it all.
Chapter 8 is the “we’re all screwed time to run or run and fight” chapter and I essentially took the easy way out and let everyone escape unscathed.
Some of the scenes are savable. There’s a call to action scene for Melinda that’s a must.
That brings the Where Weavers Daire K BAR count is:
In non-novel news: I have been enjoying the meetings of the Association of Rhode Island Authors. It’s more networking than writing group which makes it enjoyable since many of the people are published.
In freelance graphic designer news: RKB Studios is looking for clients.

Spoiler filled post hidden behind the more and images. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
If you missed last night’s episode of Community where the entire Greendale Cast was GI Joes here it is.
This is why I love this show.
I’m not going to spoil the movie.
I hope you’re taking notes DC, because Marvel is taking some big risks and they’re pay off.
I will say composer Alan Silvestri was sorely missed.
The second end credit scene like the one in Thor: The Dark World should have been part of the movie and Agents of SHIELD have even a lot more to live up to now.
Seeing it in IMAX is worth it. The 3-D not so much. And preferably without a peanut gallery sitting behind you…spoiler filled review will be forthcoming.
