I’m just loving Smash the new NBC show on the making of a Broadway musical. I adore musicals and this one is about Marilyn Monroe. Plus one of the characters is based on a character who grew up in Iowa ~ even more fun for those of us who left Iowa for the Big Wild World. Plus in a tiny way, I am relating with the writers and the whole creative process. It is touching me like never before because of my writing.
Today was a great day. One particular part of the book I had been waiting for came into place and it was wonderful! I also had some advice from my editor on the opening of the book. She had a very clever idea and I will write around it tomorrow. I usually get my inspiration at 4 am, so my fingers will be ready, willing, and able.
There is a book in the making and it looks to be a good book with a wide market. While the editor is working on the edits, I plan to start detailing the marketing plan and outlining the collateral products that will support the book in the gift market.
On a personal level I am dealing with a couple of folks I had trusted and am now finding out that trust may have been misplaced. Damn! I hate when people are not as they appear. However, the writing of this chapter is not finished and often times, the endings have surprises!!
I have a musical I just love and have seen 4 times in three countries. Anyone reading my blog is welcome to chime in and see if you can guess which musical I am speaking about. Anyone game??
