I spent about four days thinking that I was working too hard and that it meant I needed to just let my subconscious stew on some story ideas.

After that didn't work, I forced myself to just write. I'm a perfectionist, so I hate typing something that I think will later have to be corrected in any way. Doing this nearly killed me, but a few days into it, I at least had parts of a scene that I thought were salvagable. Yes, part of it was bad, but I wouldn't have those scraps of "good without typing something.

So now I'm determined to just open up my laptop and type something. I can't possibly hate all of it. (less)

The Huguenots go to the opera- sort of

The Huguenots have inspired plenty of artistic works over the centuries.  Today, we’ll be looking at the opera from the 1830s by. Giacomo Meyerbeer.  If you’re a huge opera buff, you can find the score here.


Les Huguenots gets high marks for attention to historical detail, which many artistic productions (and I’m including historical fiction novels in that group) fail to do.  Having said that, the
