characters who refuse to keep quiet

The novel just got a plot twist I never saw coming.
I lost about four hours of work the other day.
The computer problems had to have been from the hand of my muse.
As soon as I stopped looking for the words that vanished the blank page offered new voices for me to play with. A bunch of new characters want their say in the story.
It's getting better, much deeper.

It's clear that I am distracted.
My word output is down about 1,000 words a day.
The film Colombiana is kind of on my mind.
When I saw the trailer for Colombiana months ago I had to see it.
I was romanced by the trailer.
The images of an impossibly thin Zoe Saldana.
The trailer promises Revenge with a capital R.
The story about seeking a Julia/Hanna/Gloria/Kill Bill/The Professional/ Hard Candy-kind of revenge had me at hello.
I know I may be let down but I'm not too worried; watching Jordi Molla will be worth admission alone.

I am writing, reading... and waiting.
