The Music Lesson, Jan Vermeer
27,368, Sweet Taboo. Saturday’s work was the scene between Deidre and her mother. Pleased to say that it went well and led nicely into a scene between Deidre and Randall. After our writing session, Michelle and I headed off to dinner and the third Mummy movie: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. Bottom line–save yourself a few dollars, wait for the video.
On Sunday another friend and I went to see director Julian Jarrold’s Brideshead Revisited. It was excellent. A superb rendition of Evelyn Waugh’s novel. This was not my first visit to Brideshead. I’ve been there before via a previous production and also read the book. This is a beautifully done movie with a superb cast who do justice to Waugh’s story. I’ll be adding the dvd to my collection.
This morning I moved along further in Chapter 8, and made a decision, well should say that Randall made it for me, about a certain revelation in the novel which I’d been holding back until I could dramatize it in proper writerly fashion. Well so much for that hoity-toity attempt to manipulate my characters–thank goodness. Not sure how it’ll turn out but Chapter 8 is making its way to closure. And, to my surprise, I’m making my way into the last third of the book already!
Oh, and I’m halfway through Devon Ellington’s Hex Breaker.
