in which the author is distracted by patent leather

I woke up this morning completely committed to the goal of writing 5000 words today. I know, I sounds like a lot, but it's not an impossible feat for me if 1) I'm totally focused on the writing and 2) don't immediately move to the couch and watch a movie.

Unfortunately, this morning I blew it. I took the dog for a walk, came home with an iced coffee and a bagel and watched Kinky Boots. I'm a complete and utter sucker for any movie revolving around British working class characters (see Full Monty, Waking Ned Divine and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day), so I knew I'd love it, and I did.  It was sweet and charming and funny and utterly predictable in a wonderful, heartfelt way.  Eric, of course, moaned and groaned at the start, but ended up liking it too. Bottom line? If it comes on the cable, watch it.

Now, I'm 4 hours late in starting, but I'm hoping to make up for lost time. Leave me alone, Internet...and maybe, if you're good, I'll post a little teaser of the project I'm working on later today.
