>I’m In Love!!!!!!!!!!!!

>Oh, my friends, this may not matter to you at all and THAT’S OKAY! For real! But if I don’t share this, I’m going to just explode!

I’ve mentioned before about my favorite wip. Not the nano novel (which I do love, btw). There’s just something about Tangi, my favorite MC. She’s haunting and haunted. She’s tragic and epic and I adore her. However, it’s a giant struggle to write her story and do it RIGHT. Therefore, most of it is still in my head. (I can do that. It’s my super hero power-storing whole story elements in my brain-pan.)

I can see the entire thing, but some of the characters need to be more, you know? And the antagonist(s) need fleshing out, as do a few other elements.

Well, I had a major breakthrough yesterday. Still not what this post is about, but it’s important nonetheless. One of the major characters solidified! His whole story just birthed itself, wow! And, his bff….I got the whole relationship, how it’s relevant, and how it affects Tangi in all kinds of ways. In fact, there’s a whole trickle down effect happening!!!! *happy dance*

Now, if I can just figure out the rest of the cast (make them more than 2D) and more specific conflict stuff….

ANYWAY! Recently, I saw Prince of Persia, The Sands of Time. I have to admit, it was way better than I expected. What’s more, I love the soundtrack. I love listening to the music as the credits roll and I’m glad, because I found something amazing.

This is going to be Tangi’s song. It fits her in a very different but profound way…….

The passion with which Alanis Morissette sings….it blows me away. In my head, I can hear Tangi singing this – with anger and sorrow and defiance…..a declaration to all who hunt her.

Sigh….I’m in love with this song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. >Just listened to the song. I love this music! First time I heard it. And I haven't seen Prince of Persian, but now I want to. And isn't it great when you have those breakthroughs and characters seem to birth themselves? Very cool.

  3. >Wasn't PRINCE OF PERSIA great fun? And how the young 13 year old hero evaded the Sultan's guards along the rooftops is parkour — Victor Standish's great skill. Have a great weekend, Roland

  4. >I haven't seen this but after watching/listening (I love Alanis) makes me want to. I'm excited about you fave MC too Becky. Isn't it great when it comes together!Denise<3

  5. >There's nothing like being in love with a WIP or even specifically a MC from a WIP. Enjoy the romance! Can't wait to hear how it develops.

  6. >No one can do angry better than Alanis M. She truly does those strong emotions justice! I'm glad you found your 'vision' because sometimes that's all we need to get us over the hump…

  7. >Well wow, that's just great! It's a very fine day indeed when all the colors of the rainbow align and grant you what you need.

  10. >Fantastic to hear how everything’s coming together. And, I just love Alanis, who is so expressive.

  11. >Prince of Persia was waaay better than I thought it would be! I love when Alanis does a song for a movie. One of my all time faves of hers is "Still" for that Kevin Smith movie "Dogma". Great, great song. I love this one as well!

I hope to have an update by the end of the week. Wow. I just made myself accountable!*Tracy-it's been tough. It's such a great story but it's complex.
