much better  

The new opening for SPIRIT DANCES is much, *much* better. I’ve written two entirely new chapters and have revised a third. I’m reasonably certain the next five chapters, possibly as much as the next seven or even eight, can go back in with relatively minor revisions, so getting through at least five chapters is tomorrow’s goal. Sunday can be my day off, since there’s family Easter stuff going on then, and since there’s gosh let me count FOURTEEN DAYS until this book’s ideal deadline. No rest for the wicked.

I dislike revisions, but I seem to dislike them much *less* when I’ve figured out the problem on my own, rather than having an editor tell me where I went wrong.

Now I’m going to go see Clash of the Titans. I’ve never seen the original, because stop-motion SFX give me the heebie-jeebies, so I’ll probably enjoy it more than most people of my generation.

I'm a big fan of the old movie (or was when it came out ;)) I can't wait to hear what you think of the new one.

I enjoyed it pretty well. It's not great art or anything, but the effects were good. :)

I don't remember if I've seen the old one or not. Oh the joys of being raised on television unsupervised.

As for 14 days until the book needs to be done....think of it as a mini NaNo...just with more words AND a holiday thrown in just to fuck with you :)

I've read that the 3-D treatment of this movie is horrible. Assumin gyou haven't already left to see it, try to catch a 2-D showing.

(Looking forward to seeing this myself.)

Our local movie theatre isn't big enough to sport 3D, and even if it was, I'd rather see 2D. 3D exhausts my eyeballs.

LOL. The 6th graders in the school I work at get to see Clash of the Titans. They show it every year, and the kids actually watch it without commenting on how low budget stuff now is better than that plastic kraken!
