Heyo! I'm alive, the babies are wonderful, but blogging and writing has taken a bit of a backseat, as I expected. Also, I am apparently a masochist, since I let myself be talked into doing some work from home earlier than I expected. Meh, I might have gone back for a few days this summer anyway. I'm hoping to finish up this big assignment tomorrow, and then I might actually get a chance to write! I've been poking around at some fanfic here and there, but my fingers are getting itchy and knowing myself, I'll probably jump right into a new original project and pretend that I'll get it done in a timely fashion.
Although I don't have much to report on the writing front, I didn't want to completely abandon my site, and I did come across something fun and relevant to blog about. A popular topic/question in author interviews is "dream casting" our books and stories - like if all our dreams came true and our work inspired a huge Hollywood blockbuster, who would play the starring roles? It's a fun game to play, and sometimes the answers come more easily than others.
Throughout the years, I've never been able to find a suitable actress that matched my vision of my beloved Ro, from Disintegration and the upcoming The Fall of the Midnight Scorpions. I've tossed around some ideas with friends, but no one ever felt quite right. Until....
Like many other people, I spent last week watching the new season of Orange is the New Black. Anyone who's spent any time on the internet since then has likely noticed all the attention actress Ruby Rose has gotten due to her role on the show. I wouldn't say I completely loved her storyline, but I can definitely appreciate her charisma and appeal. And while I watched, I found myself thinking that I might have finally found my Ro. Sure, she might have a few too many tattoos to be 100% accurate, but the rest all fits. So who cares about hype and popularity? I'm fine with jumping on the Ruby Rose bandwagon!
