On the Lookout

So, I'm restarting my search of musical muses for my MC who I am now going to start calling Al. Al is much easier than saying "my MC." The journey for Al's taste in music has just begun. I'm in the process of it right now, listening to something that I don't mind listening--but definitely wouldn't have it in my own iTunes. Al quite enjoys it though.

I'm going to do journal entries for him for the entirety of the story. I did one today and I found it really helped get into his head. Alas, I'm starting to think most of my posts right now will be about getting into Al's damn mind. I don't think I've ever tried to get into character quite as hard as I am with him. It's for the better, really. I know this, though it's weird.

On a different note for a moment, I got a call for another job interview. Hurray. I hope it doesn't cut into writing too much... We'll see if a physical job (assuming I get it) is better than a not-so-exciting retail job. Goodness knows that basically rounded up my creativity and had a firing squad shooting holes into it... Plus the lack of sleep.

The music Al likes is getting me sleepy. Crossing my fingers it'll just be a when I'm tired and up at 430 am. Yes... Lucky me, Al is asleep right now. No miscreant talking in my head~ And no, I'm not crazy. Just good at picturing him :P

Perhaps I'll draw a picture of how I see him for you all. Can't guarantee it's going to be the finest work of art you've seen--but I can promise something better than a stick figure!

  1. A journal sounds like a wonderful idea!

    And I'd love to see what he looks like.
