Juggling spinning plates

My editor has read 'Journey of the Heart' and loves it, but my hero Ethan is too nice!
I need to alpha him up.

That's the trouble with using Hugh Jackman as hero inspiration. He's a genuinely nice guy and it's difficult to make him otherwise.
So going to be busy the next few weeks wrestling him into shape.

Not to mention the countless parties: tonight, 2 on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, the following Saturday and Monday.

October is a crazy month.
And don't those revisions always land at the hectic times?

For now, Britt and Nick will have to wait...considering where I left them last, I doubt they'll be complaining!

Oh, no! Hugh Jackman is perfect! And there's no such thing as too nice, but I know you have to give the eds what they want!

Hey Nicola, did you see the photos of Hugh on his fortieth birthday last weekend? Phhhwoooar! Hugh just gets better with age :-)

In addition to the last comment I made, a few of us gals have been perving at some photos of Hugh on Bronte beach the other day.

I thought it was my duty to the women of the world to share the viewing pleasure! Plus, it may inspire you to write some 'bad boy' stuff about your hero, Nicola!!


All in the name of research... Lol

Wow, that's a lot of parties. Boy, that's a lot of parties. :) Okay, so it's a lot to someone who's last party was in high school, round about 15 years ago. ;)

But there is no such thing as too nice! :) Well, maybe more pictures of Hugh as Wolverine might help. . . though I don't know how alpha he is there, in the end. But anyway, love seeing his return to the blog! :)


Nicola Marsh said...

No, I didn't see the pics, Monique.

But I have now!!

Oh wow, a huge thanks for THAT link!!!!!

Nicola Marsh said...

Way too many, Lois.

Between kinder kid and family, it's chaos here with the parties!

I like the idea Lois had re Wolverine. Nicola, you need to watch a bit of X-Men 1.

I think I remember reading once that you've never seen it? Well, I think you may surprise yourself and like Wolverine. He is quite angst ridden and complex. Much darker than other characters Hugh has played before.

I recommend you watch the first X-men to get an idea of Hugh's bad boy side. You can't help but sympathise with the character despite his anger and aggression. If you watch it, you'll know what I mean.

Besides, seeing Hugh in full leather is worth the effort!! He he he he!!
