Last night, after spending several hours writing in my office, I decided to join my neglected husband downstairs to watch some television. Now, you have to understand something about my hubby. He loves to watch anything that deals with the paranormal, never misses Shark Week, and will DVR anything Bigfoot related (even if he's home to watch it).
So you'd think my idea of writing a story about a group of investigators in search of the elusive chupacabra (who end up getting killed in the process, of course) would have sparked some interest. Nope. His response was, "No one wants to read about the chupacabra. What about Bigfoot? But you can't make him bad."
Not two seconds later, he tunes me out in order to watch Destination Truth on Syfy. And wouldn't you know...in this episode, the investigative group goes in search of the African Night Stalker, aka the Chupacabra. Apparently the team over at Destination Truth thinks goatsuckers are interesting. That or I'm just psychic.
4/7/11 UPDATE: Just watched scenes for next week's Bones...the Chupacabra makes an appearance! Chupacabra - 2 / Hubby - 0
We are well into Day 3 of ROW80 and I'm happy to say I've pretty much stuck to my goals. I've written everyday and even spent some time editing. Okay, I'm lying. I didn't do any writing on Monday. I usually don't, due to Monday night class and typing up lecture notes don't count! But for the rest of the week, I plan on staying on target. I still have some writing time slotted for tonight and got a few precious minutes of writing time in this morning.
