Things Accomplished in Fiction:
Breakthrough with Syringe as a character. Map out the novel scene by scene, though some, I imagine, will break down in the process. I am doing good time and with persistence the draft will be completed by May. I changed the deadline, because I spent February being a lazy ass and May’s going to be busy as hell, so I’m going for something more manageable. The action has yet to come, but I did push through a scene, where Syringe shows her vulnerable side. As we are speaking [mostly I am speaking], I am redefining the character. It’s a messy job to be honest, because I envisioned her differently and she defies me in a manner, which pleases me, so I am not totally against Syringe having a meltdown in her own way.
Things Accomplished in Real Life:
Oh, not much. As the introverted type, I did the mandatory stay inside my head time. It was a fun experience, thinking about the project, some other minor shorts and also what the next big goal will be, when I finish with ‘Forged in Blood’.
However, I did have some fun time with a Zombie March. The idea was to march dressed and masked like zombies to shock and provoke. As an event it was aimed to break the stereotype about the young person and the negative explicative words used in connection. I think that we will be featured on TV sometime soon. Here is how I looked with my make-up. This is the first time my friend worked to create a zombie look, so there is some room for improvement, but this is by far the best make-up at the event.
