Hard at Work

Getting motivated to work
Hello everyone!

Here it is, a bright Wednesday morning and I'm hard at work, uh, trying to avoid work, that is. No, not really. Actually, I'm just working up to working. Yeah, that sounds better.

If you're a a writer, songwriter, screenwriter, or artist, chances are you've happened across a lovely little book "The Artist's Way," by Julia Cameron. If not, run-don't walk-to the bookstore and get a copy. Let me tell you, a truer work defining the creative heart could not be written. It's a guide book, a comfort, and probably the best explanation of what it is to be an artist that I've ever seen. Oh, and it contains some awesome quotes, too.

Anyway, that's what I'm doing this morning, getting all the junk out so I can go to work. It's like pre-work, I guess.

After getting up, taking my girls to school, and then coming home, checking out my online haunts, and writing in my daily journal, here I am. It's a long path, but hopefully, I'll arrive at my day's goal.

This week I'm busy going over copy edits and working on scenes that I've either rewritten or added to. No easy task, I assure you. On top of that it's a totally warm and sunny fall day outside, (my favorite time of the year) and here I am stuck in a room that still has plywood up over the windows, trying to pull a book out of my head. That's one thing about writing, by the time you actually call a work finished, you've reread it so many times that you could recite it backwards in your sleep.

I did a bit of research yesterday, wanting to make sure my depiction of Newgate Prison in London was fairly accurate because it's in the first few pages of the book I'm now editing, and I did a little websurfing.

If you like history, prisons, or reading about crime and punishment in the English Regency period, then this is the place to go. Awesome tales of the prison and execution system and what passed for justice in those times. For instance, did you know if two people heard you say something bad about the king, like you wanted him deposed, you could be executed? Oh, and a nice description of the term 'drawn and quarter. Nice.

Anyway, every Sunday they would have their morning service and all of the death row inmates were seated in the chamber. In the center was a long table with a wooden casket sitting on it. Talk about driving home your point, huh.

So, after a hard day of websurfing yesteday I then retired to my room with television on and settled to do some more editing. Only watching four hours of Law and Order ensued and I didn't manage to get much done.

Now, here I am, working up to my work, warming up to it, if you will. Oh, and I checked out the Will Wheaton website, and his blog. Interesting guy, to be sure. If you like reading about another's thought processes, I suggest you go there. I tried to go to the Frank Spotnitz site, (writer, producer, director X Files) but it was down for the time being. I think it's important to keep up with other writers whenever possible. I chose Mr. Wheaton because I've been told he perfected the art of 'blogging' and Mr. Spotnitz because of his work in film, (and because I'm a huge fan of the files).

I'm also hoping my friend and mentor, Esther Lutrell had a good week last week. She was in Florida screening her film "Lithium Springs," and although I would have loved to go to one of the showings--time, work, and kids prevented me from doing so. I'm sure it was great Esther, so congratulations!!!

Now, back to work, I guess. Just put up my website with book covers:www.pamlabud.com. It's a poor, pathetic website, but it's mine, so if you want to stop by, I'd appreciate it.

I'm on my way back to work, so to all my fellow writers, have a productive day, and my fellow readers, may you find that special book and set off on a glorious adventure of the mind. Cheers!

Happy writing and reading, Pam.
