I haven't been sleeping well.
Granted, I shouldn't have watched the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street right before bed. Or maybe too many back-to-back episodes of True Blood do not bode well for peaceful slumber.
But I love monsters! I love scary movies!
I guess you could file this under the list of "Things you know better than doing but you do them anyway."
Like when you eat a funnel cake and run straight for the Spinny Swings at the fair. Or when you go to the mall "just to look" and not buy.
It does make us interesting creatures - humans - does it not? We know french fries are bad for us and yet we on occasion to indulge in a Triple Baconator with chili cheese fries. We know we should exercise but drink Diet Coke instead.
When writing my characters, I have a habit of wanting to make them too perfect. Wanting to make them too likable. But my heroine is wounded and I've found that indulging in her true nature and keeping her that way has made her more interesting to me, and hopefully to future readers.
I wrote yesterday! But it was with a pen and I didn't count my words and log into NaNo. Today, though, my friends, the ink goes into the computer and I'll continue writing about my not-perfect characters who keep doing things they shouldn't.
Until then, I'm going to get a bite to eat and start my day!
....How bad of an idea is it to eat a bowl of Halloween candy for breakfast?
How about you reader? Do you know better and do better or do you know better but do bad anyway?
Smile, Feel Good, Pass it On
