Slow Me Down

Not being able to do much when my head was all stuffy gave me some time to visit and play at my favorite time wasters. I hadn't been to a few in a while. I stopped by Free Rice and Websudoku, but didn't stay long. Both of those required thinking. So I headed to YouTube where I hit the jackpot!

I found the perfect song for my heroine's character and the first song for the book's soundtrack that I use when I'm writing. Even better, Pride and Prejudice clips are set to the music. How perfect is that?



With that in mind, I tried to picture what she looked like. I came up with that, too. Scarlett Johansson!

So even though I didn't get a lot of pages written, this will help me. Listening to the songs are a quick way to put me into the story so I can start writing right away.

I still haven't figured out who will be the inspiration for my hero. He's a web developer. Irish descent. Dark hair with green eyes. Have any suggestions for me?

You mean they don't all look like Hayden Christensen?

I love FreeRice! I now have Sudoku on my Treo and find I waste a lot of time that way. I've trained myself away from games on the computer....so now I play them on my phone.

Hi Melissa, How about Colin Farrell, I think he's good looking and Irish or Hugh Jackman.

There's a research scientist guy on UFO Hunters on the History Channel who has what I consider Black Irish looks. I could be wrong about that, but he's pretty hunky. His name is Ted Ackworth. Not sure if there are pictures of him online, though.

Sorry you're still under the weather. I bet you had a good time with your time wasters though.

I can't think of anyone.

Ooh, Irish with dark hair and green eyes......what was the question again? *G* Wish I could help, but I don't watch too many movies or pay too much attention to actors.
Sorry to hear your head is still stuffy. I hope the medication starts working faster!

Have a good day!

Oh! I just love those Irish heros. I can't wait for the book. I hope you get to feeling better soon.

Hugh Jackman, with curlier hair. Yowsa, now that's something inspiring!

Love it that you put your downtime to good use! Hope you're soon feeling strong and healthy. :)
