Tim Burton: Auteur - Week 2

I can't believe I am still doing this 2 weeks down the line.  This hospital business takes you way off track - right now Hubby is back inside hospital and having various parts of him reassessed.  Right now, I will have to get back to the grindstone as I have spent too much time away.  I want to also concentrate on the shock value that Burton uses - like the Maitland's trying to scare the Deetz family in Beetlejuice and Beetlejuice's own scare tactics.  Also, the witch in the cave of Sleepy Hollow.

I do feel like I am getting somewhere. 1,883 words - 307 spare and I think I am over 2/3rds the way there.  Something that does help me concentrate is having the headphones on listening to BROWN NOISE

I find that a combination of that and listening to Classic FM online just makes me channel myself away from distraction and helps me focus.  It does rather sound like I am taking a blow torch to the London Philharmonic Orchestra, but hey - whatever works :-)

2,005 words - I may have to watch Sweeney Todd, Batman maybe Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (though I am not keen on the former or the latter).  Meanwhile - I think I am done for the night :-)
