Irises


I’m still plugging away at my WIP, trying to keep up with the daily word count quota so that I can mark Camp NaNoWriMo off my list of to dos as a successfully completed challenge.  Unfortunately, I’ve hit a bit of snag.  You know, one of those minor speed bumps where you write an entire scene that is completely out of sync with your character’s profile, or you kidnapped a bad guy when you should have just killed him – now what the hell are you going to do with him – or the pulsating club scene has unfocused dialog that circles around but never quite hits the mark.  What is it that Elliot is trying to get out of Gerhard?  Do I even know?  I think maybe I don’t.

I’m a little frustrated.

So I took some pictures.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. 

Why on earth would you take a black and white photograph of beautifully vibrant irises?  Seems a bit pointless, I know.

Indulge me for a moment.  I am practicing the art of avoidance. 

Plus, it’s growing on me.  I think it may even look a little bit…cool.

  1. That is a lovely shot where the texture of the petals becomes more important than their color. It allows us to perceive the irises differently, to see a different aspect of their beauty. Well done.

    As for the WIP, I’m a big fan of asking why I did something like that (yes, I’ve done it), because in my experience, there’s usually a good, subconscious reason for it. It leads to interesting things, really. Keep going though, I’ll bet you can work through it. 🙂
