[livejournal.com profile] rosamund and I are writing a scene centred on a production of Romeo and Juliet. This led me to ponder.

I've often said that I won't direct. I'm frankly terrified of the thought. But if I had to direct anything, R&J would be it. I know the play backwards and forwards, I have very specific ideas regarding characterisation that I *never* get to see...and I keep complaining about every version I've seen so far.

It's worth considering, I suppose.

Though I think I'll wait to hear Kai's account of Macbeth before I consider any forays into the terrifying world of directorship.

Plus, I can't imagine a more perfect Mercutio than the one I'm writing. ;) Right, [livejournal.com profile] rosamund? Nor a more perfect Romeo and Juliet. I daresay that's what comes from writing the entire thing yourself.

[livejournal.com profile] kaiburr and [livejournal.com profile] rosamund already know about this, but I thought I'd spread the joy...

Okay, maybe not joy. Probably closer to mortal terror, but oh well.

::deep breath::

I finished Book Three. All of it. Even the scene that's been giving me a headache since May. Of course, this doesn't mean I won't go back and revise for the six-millionth time.

It does, however, mean that there's nothing whatsoever stopping me from finally writing Book Four, uninterrupted. Which means it's time for the shit to hit the fan, and all the characters have started hating me in advance.

I have absolutely no desire to count chickens before they're hatched, or whatever, but if I'm really really lucky, the novel might actually get finished this year.

I wonder...
