Like Pulling Teeth

EIT says I need the fight scene to last longer. I swear it's like I'm back in high school working on a research paper and the teacher is telling me "This part here about the forest of Luxembourg can be expanded a bit more." Or, back in college and Larson is telling me "Pump it up! Remember, Conflict is Drama."

The hardest part is that I know they were all right. It needs to be done. I just never imagined how hard it was to write action scenes, because to me it feels so completely ridiculous. I feel like it's all just telling, telling, telling. Maybe I'll delve back into some Anita Blake today...

On another note, I had a scene come completely out of nowhere last night. I don't know how it will fit in, or where, or even if it will, but I like the scene for what it is. I'm not going to try to write around it just to work it in on purpose. If it's meant to fit, I'll know where it needs to go when the time comes.

More X-Files today. Excited doesn't even describe how I'm feeling about the movie coming up. There are no words for that. I'm so very tempted to just go to the theater in the morning and stay for each and every showing. Not to mention, there was an article about it in TV Guide this week. There are more than enough hints that Mulder and Scully are totally going to hook up. It's about time. I've been a total shipper from the beginning. I always knew they were M.F.E.O. :)
