04:02 pm - Progress!
So I decided to write a good old fashioned Livejournal entry because in truth, most of the friends I have on Facebook have not ever heard me talk about my fictional undertaking, In Her Shadow, like most people here. So the news is basically, that I am writing again for the first time in 10 months!

Much like where I found the motivation for the first part, I realized that the musical of The Woman in White leaves another gaping hole in terms of information and questions that might pop up upon further review. Much in the same fashion as I had questioned whether or not Marian at that time in her life could have performed a seduction successfully without knowing where she had acquired the knowledge and confidence (that is answered in Book One and thensome), only this time my question was not about Marian, but Anne.

What happened when she was 'just sixteen'?
Did she really attack her mother or was that all a lie?
In other words it got me thinking about how much of the Glyde we see in the musical can we believe? And if we can't, than what really happened?

So now I am on a springboard of creating an alternative past and 'incident' with Sir Percival of my own; using inspiration from nearly all the different versions I am working from (novel, musical, 1948 Adaptation a little, 97' miniseries) and smashing it all together. I don't want to say how Marian and Laura acquire this information yet, as that is one of the nods I make to one of the versions, but the second part will allow me for a time to actually write as Anne Catherick. I am psyched. I get to write about Jane Catherick, which is thrilling, so I am really psyched and starting to get my pace back now that I've made some decisions.

Re-listened to my cast recording for the first time in a long while and fell in love all over again. Really hope this project comes to fruition since there's such a sad lack of WIW fic. You mentioned taking bits and pieces from all versions so I hope Laura has some of her Musical! self's backbone and Walter has some of his Book! earnest integrity. Marian is always awesome of course. ;)

It really is a hybrid of everything I am hoping. For Laura, she most certainly is going to hold her own, I just have to decide in what particular way she would choose to do so as there are several scenarios that come up that would test her in that regard. Walter, I mostly introduce the idea in the wacko-tastic 1948 movie version that he may have had a love interest in both of the sisters at one point, it is just how that differs and what makes him ultimately choose Laura.

It took me a while to figure out how Anne could be involved in all this, as the only voice narrating the story are Marian and occassionaly Count Fosco (as she is relaying the information to him) but it is a lot of fun, and hopefully soon I'll be able to relax into it and start writing again. Past two months have been kind of stressful so it went on the back-burner.

Thanks so much for the encouragement!
