Alias takes a Hiatus. Wish I could.
Last night I dreamed that Sydney and Nadia were fraternal twins separated at birth. (And this will only make sense if you watch ALIAS.) Oh, I know there are problems with that scenario, but someone in my dream fugue it made perfect sense. Because I so want Nadia to be Jack's daughter, not the evil Sloane's. (Though it is possible to have twins fathered by two different men, that seems far-fetched even for Irinia.)
This is what comes of watching ALIAS right before bed. And now the show takes a hiatus for Jennifer G. Affleck to enjoy her new baby.
If only I dreamed of my characters as easily as I dream of Jack and Syd, Vaughn, and Irina. But I will. There are times, when I'm deep into a project, that I dream-edit pages--I read text and strike words out and start over again. I only wish I could wake up with finished pages on the nightstand.
But I'm here to report that the six-page-per day routine is working very well, and for the first time I feel like I'm getting my footing in this project. Deadline is April first and I have many travel days between now and then, so I have to keep pushing on.
No hiatus for me. And I don't suppose Nadia and Sydney could be twins . . . Jack would have noticed. (VBG)
