I finally found some BIG robots I like! You do not understand how big a deal this is in my family. The Husband, Cheyenne, and nearly every other friend, especially male friend I have is seriously into the anime Robotech™ and the RPG and the movies that come along with the anime. I am not a big fan of giant robots, even if you do pilot them. There just isn’t any appeal for me there – normally. However, I have seen a movie where I completely enjoyed the big robots and their pilots!
Pacific Rim 2 gave me this wonderful new appreciation of big robots. The story gets me more interested and the suspension of disbelief is much easier to do because of the story. The characters were people I came to care about and root for. The giant robots were secondary to the story almost, yet were integral simultaneously. If this movie had an anime, I would watch it, and I would play the mess out of the RPG.
In other, non-movie related, news, the YA novel is coming along quite well. Already to Chapter 3 with notes and ideas ready for Four. Being here on Stinnett means there isn’t much to do other than watch movies and play some games you don’t need the internet for. You read a lot. Without distractions like I had before, the writing is taking center stage again.
I know ‘living in the city’ didn’t damage my writing desire or skill by any means. The stress we just came from was the killer and it had been going on for five years almost when I simply couldn’t take it any longer, and no other resources were open to us, we moved to some place quieter. For the first time in…forever…we have a little peace. It isn’t over-flowing and there aren’t Heavenly beams coming down to the sound of an angelic choir, but peace is here: inside me – in us.
The Husband is the most relaxed I’ve seen him in many, many years. He is beginning to breathe better – except in the extreme heat, like today – and it is cool enough, thanks to Melody and ‘the guys’, he can stay inside and stay cool enough to where he doesn’t smother.
Being in this place now, I so long for my Family, Friends, and everyone else, to have this feeling of security and safety to where you can write and find giant robot movies you can enjoy.
