It seems our car is having transmission problems, so until it gets fixed (hopefully today) we aren’t driving it any more than necessary.
I watched most of Eureka on Sci-Fi last night before I had to set the DVR to record and get some sleep, and I definitely enjoyed it. While it’s true that it’s fun fluff, the thing that impressed me was the characterization. The characters are colorful and full of life and detail. They might seem like archetypes at first, but the show just keeps layering on details until they become something much more. And really, that’s the key to creating good characters.
I’m currently reading “The Curious Case of the Misplaced Modifier” for review and Natalie Goldberg’s “Writing Down the Bones” for fun (although of course I’ll review it). I also have “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Psychology” next to me to start reading for review. It’s been a little while since I took any psych courses so I’m curious to see what the intro-level material is saying these days.
I have the urge to write an extended entry about something, but I’m sleepy this morning, so I’ll spare you for now!
