What are you looking forward to most?

Sam Heughan, star of the upcoming Outlander series (as if you didn’t already know who he was) recently asked:

Several people answered “EVERYTHING.” Makes sense because it’s difficult to pick one thing. I thought of several answers, but whittled it down to this:

Of course, the question kept me thinking . . .

Dissatisfied with a 140 character answer, I thought I’d put a few more thoughts down. These are in no particular order.

I am most looking forward to Bear McCreary‘s musical score, having already heard snippets that gave me chills. I’ve always been a fan of bagpipes, especially accompanied by stings, be it the violin or guitar.

And being a fan of foreign tongues (keep your minds out of the gutter, ladies and gents), I am really looking forward to hearing the Gaelic dialogue. It’ll be a bit frustrating not knowing exactly what they’re saying, but I trust in Ron Moore and Diana Gabaldon that we’ll “get it.”

Am I looking forward to the moment Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is zapped back to the 18th Century? Of course, I am! I expect the music to sweep me away with her. And I can’t wait to see what the visual effects look like (of course).

If I were putting these in a particular order, I might have to put our first sight of Jamie in the cottage near the top. In the trailers, we’ve seen the shots of Jamie fighting the Redcoats at Lallybroch trying to protect Jenny. Don’t know if they will be our first glimpse of him, or if those scenes come later in a flashback when Jamie reveals his story to Claire at Leoch. I’m hoping that’s the case because I want the first reveal to match the book.

I shrank back into the shadows near the fireplace, hoping to avoid notice. The man called Murtagh had untied my hands before leading me here. Perhaps I could slip away while they were busy elsewhere. The men’s attention had shifted to a young man crouched on a stool in the corner. He had barely looked up through my interrogation, but kept his head bent, hand clutching the opposite shoulder, rocking slightly back and forth in pain.

Dougal gently pushed the clutching hand away. One of the men pulled back the young man’s plaid, revealing a dirt-smeared linen shirt blotched with blood. A small man with a thick mustache came up behind the lad with a single-bladed knife, and holding the shirt at the collar, slit it across the breast and down the sleeve, so that it fell away from the shoulder.

I gasped, as did several of the men. The shoulder had been wounded; there was a deep ragged furrow across the top, and blood was running freely down the young man’s breast. But more shocking was the shoulder joint itself. A dreadful hump rose on the side, and the arm hung at an impossible angle.

What an introduction to a character! We know he’s young but not what he looks like. He’s in pain, and we feel sorry for him – more than we do for Claire at the moment. Our eyes will be on his shoulder, not his face. Well, maybe some of you silly gooses will be looking at his chest.

What about Claire’s first meeting of Jonathan Randall, you say? Unfortunately, I’ve seen it – or part of it. I wish I had been stronger and avoided it like I avoided the Jamie ghost scene, but at least I learned my lesson, aye? Yes, I’m looking forward to seeing that scene in full context, including her “rescue” by the MacKenzies.

We’ve seen several stills and itty-bitty clips of the scene by the fireplace where Claire tends to Jamie’s wounds. Oh, how much do I want to see that scene in its full, uncut glory? About this much <holding hands as far apart as they will go>. The music. The mood. The steamy looks. The dreamy dialogue. I expect to hear a world-wide collective sigh.

Am I looking forward to the Jamie kissing Laoghaire scene? Sure, I am. Um, Jamie is kissing someone . . . Hello?

Speaking of kissing, Jamie gets beaten up a lot in this first book – see what I did there? I’m looking forward to every punch, kick, smack, whack, and whip he’s expected to give and receive. I’m an action-girl. No, I’m not going to enjoy it – unless he’s the one giving, but it’s all part of his personal growth, so . . .

No, I have not forgotten about The Wedding or the honeymoon. Who among us is not counting the days until we’ll need a drool cup by our chairs? Or sofa or bed – wherever you plan to watch it. Okay, I admit it. I’m more looking forward to the honeymoon than the wedding. There, I said it. I’m more into kissing scenes than lovey-dovey, fainting scenes. I want to see Claire take Jamie in hand – literally. I want to hear the famous lines:

“I said I was a virgin, not a monk,” he said, kissing me again. “If I find I need guidance, I’ll ask.”

Aren’t you just melting, thinking about it? I hope Outlander Starz doesn’t leak a single, solitary bit of that scene before it airs.

Moving on, I’ve always had a soft spot for men crying. I love the scene at the end of the movie, The Holiday, with Cameron Diaz and Jude Law after she leaves him at the cottage to return home. She changes her mind and runs back, calling his name when she enters. He comes out of the bedroom with tears running down his cheeks. It makes me laugh – as it’s supposed to – but it’s also touching. Why am I bringing this up? Because I’m thinking of the scene when Jamie takes Claire back to Craigh na Dun. He leaves her alone and goes down to the crofter’s cottage, expecting her to return to her own time. Of course, Claire decides to stay with him. Who wouldn’t? [Not including those in love with Tobias Menzies.]

He was in the front room, asleep on a narrow oak settle. He slept on his back, as he usually did, hands crossed on his stomach, mouth slightly open. The last rays of daylight from the window behind me limned his face like a metal mask; the silver tracks of dried tears glinted on golden skin, and the copper stubble of his beard gleamed dully.

I stood watching him for a moment, filled with an unutterable tenderness. Moving as quietly as I could, I lay down beside him on the narrow settle and nestled close. He turned to me in sleep as he so often did, gathering me spoon fashion against his chest and resting his cheek against my hair. Half-conscious, he reached to smooth my hair away from his nose; I felt the sudden jerk as he came awake to realize that I was there, and then we overbalanced and crashed together onto the floor, Jamie on top of me.

Yeah. Take a moment.

Okay. Also near the top of my list are the scenes that could have been in the book but weren’t. Luckily, Mr. Moore’s vision includes those scenes for our viewing pleasure. Being a huge fan of anything World War II related, I am salivating over the upcoming WWII parts. And then there’s “Poor Frank.” We get more Frank in the series than we did in the books, so yay! Can’t wait to see the flashbacks.

Most of you reading this have probably seen the tweets and perhaps my blog post – IAN’S KILT – campaigning for a picture of Ian Murray (Stephen Cree) in a kilt. So, put that near the top of my list, too. At this rate, I’ll have to number things as 1a, 1b, 1c, etc.

And although I said this list of things I’m “looking forward to most” was in no particular order, this last item can be listed as #2 after all the aboves.

Basically, it’s the entire ending – from Jamie’s short “exit” from the show while Jenny and Claire search for him to his recovery at the Abbey. I’ve read those chapters more than once, and they ALWAYS make my stomach harden – just like when I watch the opening scene of Saving Private Ryan. Yes, I know it’s fiction, but terrible things are happening to a character I love, and it has the desired effect on my senses. Seeing it visualized is going to be horrifying and beautiful at the same time. I’m sure I will cry and wince, especially during the bone-setting scene.

I know I’ve left out lots of things to which you are looking forward. I’d love to hear from you in the comments section. I’ll repeat Mr. Heughan’s question: What are you looking forward to most?

Looking ahead, per my original answer, I can honestly say I am most looking forward to Claire and Jamie’s reunion scene in the print shop. Voyager is unquestionably my favorite of the series [I'm partial to mature Jamie], and those scenes have always been my favorite. The build up of her return, walking through the streets of Edinburgh – not sure what to expect. The fainting, hugging, crying. The photographs of Brianna. More crying, melting, falling apart. Le big sigh.

Here’s hoping we’ll get to see it all. I know it’s difficult for actors to stick with the same part for too long. Only time will tell whether we greedy fans will get to see the entire series of novels realized.

Here’s one more thing I’m looking forward to most – watching the number of Golden Globes, SAG awards, and Emmys this show is going to win.

All Action & Steamy Outlander Trailers

Fridays in Outlander World are exciting, especially we are gifted with a new sneak peek. TWO new trailers were released today via Outlander Starz and Buzzfeed entertainment.

The short & steamy vid can be viewed here.

The All-Action vid is courtesy of BuzzFeed. What’s most exciting is the music from Bear McCreary – our first “official” listen to his marvelous score. The trailer follows below.

Perhaps my favorite stills from these new trailers are the transitions. The editors did a great job weaving the web between Claire’s past and her future. Here, she lines up perfectly between her two lovers.

Claire and Jamie’s transition has been a wonderful development to watch through the trailers. Here we see the beginnings of their lifelong  “friendship.”

Outlander Episode Summaries & Posters

The series premiere  of Outlander– based on the novel by Diana Gabaldon – is fast approaching in the US, Canada & Australia – BUT we still do NOT have a date for our friends in the UK and other countries across the globe. We continue to plead and campaign on their behalf, hoping the networks will answer our call soon.

The even faster approaching red carpet premiere in San Diego inspired me to have a little fun with all the beautiful photographs, trailers, and behind-the-scenes featurettes released by Outlander Starz over the past few months.

The following are my visions of posters for the first 8 episodes. I’ve attempted to be accurate with respect to the credits, but not all information for each block has yet been released. In other words, these are for ‘entertainment purposes only,’ especially where the summaries are concerned as I’ve expanded them with my own guesses based on the novel. Whether my summaries are correct, they definitely contain SPOILERS for those who have never read the novel.

Episode #101: Sassenach

Summary: WWII combat nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Randall) is on her second honeymoon in Inverness with her husband, Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies) when she is mysteriously transported from 1945 to 18th Century Scotland. Almost immediately upon arrival, she finds herself in danger – first running from a squad of trigger-happy Redcoats, then from her blood-thirsty husband’s six-time great grandfather. Next, she is kidnapped by a group of Highlanders led by Dougal MacKenzie (Graham MacTavish) and is taken to a cottage where where she meets an injured young man by the name of Jamie McTavish (Sam Heughan). Compelled by her duty to care for wounded warriors, Claire takes him under her charge during their journey to Castle Leoch. [And this is where we begin saying, "Poor Frank."]

#101_Sassenach_Poster

Episode #102: Castle Leoch

Summary: Now a guest of the MacKenzie clan, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) is taken to meet the Laird, Colum MacKenzie (Gary Lewis), and confirms she has somehow traveled to 1743 Scotland. As suspicions about her strange appearance and manners grow, Claire befriends the equally mysterious Geillis Duncan (Lotte Verbeek), wife of the Cranesmuir procurator fiscal, Arthur Duncan. Her friendship with Jamie (Sam Heughan) also continues to develop, leaving her shocked to watch him take the punishment for Laoghaire MacKenzie (Nell Hudson) one evening in Leoch hall. Despite everyone’s suspicions, when the clan discover her medical skills, Claire’s status changes from ‘guest’ to prisoner. [And this is where we begin saying. "Watch out for that blond."]

#102_Castle_Leoch_Poster

Episode #103: The Way Out

Summary: With Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) assistance, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) tends to an ill child. And during an evening’s entertainment, Jamie translates a bard’s tale about the wife of Balnain, giving Claire hope for her freedom and the return to her own time. As their friendship turns toward intimacy, Claire is surprised to find Jamie locked in Laoghaire MacKenzie’s (Nell Hudson) embrace. After several weeks of captivity, she makes the decision to use her medical skills to aid her escape from Castle Leoch.  ["Told ye to watch out for that blond."]

#103_The_Way_Out_Poster

Episode #104: The Gathering

Summary: As the Castle prepares for The MacKenzie Gathering, Claire (Caitriona Balfe) plots her escape. But after a dangerous encounter with a drunken Dougal MacKenzie (Graham MacTavish) and an unexpected run-in with Jamie (Sam Heughan) in the castle stables, her plans are dashed. Her foiled escape also has an undesirable result for Jamie who was attempting to avoid swearing an oath to Column MacKenzie (Gary Lewis) for fear of his life. [An action packed episode to be sure.]

#104_The_Gathering_Poster

Episode #105: Rent

Summary: Claire (Caitriona Balfejoins the MacKenzie rent-collecting trip, thinking she will never see Castle Leoch again. Her new plan is to slip away and return to Craigh na Dun given the first opportunity. While on the road, she learns more about the history of the MacKenzie clan and makes friends with Colum’s solicitor, Ned Gowan (Bill Paterson) – “a small, elderly man . . . born, bred, and educated in Edinburgh.” During a stop at a tavern one evening, Claire is horrified to watch Dougal (Graham MacTavish) use Jamie’s (Sam Heughan) scars to gain sympathy for the Jacobite cause. The incident reminds her that a defining moment in Scottish history is fast approaching. [And we're two episodes closer to the big night.]

#105_Rent_Poster

Episode #106: The Garrison Commander

Summary: Claire’s (Caitriona Balfeunexpected meeting with a British general turns tense when Captain Jonathan Randall (Tobias Menzies) arrives. Claire finds herself alone with Randall – a dangerous man determined to uncover her secrets. [Wouldn't this be a great episode to have flashbacks of Frank in comparison to Black Jack Randall?]

#106_The_Garrison_Comm_Poster

Episode #107: The Wedding

Summary: Dougal MacKenzie (Graham MacTavish) offers a solution to Captain Randall’s demand that Claire (Caitriona Balfe) be turned over to the English for questioning. He offers her the protection of the MacKenzie clan, but only if she marries the young James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser (Sam Heughan). [Sigh. Decisions. Decisions.] [Note: The picture of Claire in front of the chapel is my creation.]

#107_The_Wedding_Poster

Episode #108: Both Sides Now

Summary: This description is COMPLETELY fictitious because we’ve been given no information on episode 8 and can tell very little by the title. BUT because it’s the mid-season finale, I am guessing they’ll want to end it with a bang. SO this is my guess . . . Claire (Caitriona Balfe) and Jamie (Sam Heughan) spend their honeymoon at an inn while Dougal MacKenzie (Graham MacTavish) continues collecting the rent. They grow closer, and she realizes she can no longer fight her attraction for him. [Am betting this is the episode where we meet Hugh Monro (Simon Meacock).] When Claire is left alone in a glade while Jamie goes off to meet with the man who may be able to clear his name, she makes the difficult decision to return to Craigh na Dun. Once again, her escape attempt fails – this time at the hands of Captain Jonathan Randall (Tobias Menzies). [We'll find out how far off I am – or not – in 9 weeks!]

Jane Eyrë: Writer’s Digest Annotated Classics

The new Writer’s Digest publication of the classic, Jane Eyre, includes annotated notes by K.M. Weiland. Weiland is the award-winning author of the non-fiction best-sellers: Outlining Your Novel and Structuring Your Novel. When she’s not working on her own writing projects, she’s mentoring authors through her website: Helping Writers Become Authors.

Before reading a single savory note by Weiland, the reader is greeted with an eloquently written Forward by Diana Gabaldon – internationally best-selling author of the Outlander and Lord John Grey series. Gabaldon points out:

“Everything a writer knows how to do is Right There on the page; all you have to do is learn how to see it.”

Therefore, the first step to becoming a writer – she tells us – is to read. And as you will see for yourself, there are few better novels to teach us than Jane Eyre.

This annotated version is definitely not for first-time readers of the extraordinary novel because of the in-depth spoiler discussions throughout the marginal notes. Through these notes, we sense Weiland’s great respect and love for every word written by Charlotte Brontë.

Weiland’s meticulous breakdown of the novel’s well-composed nuances, use of symbolism, layered foreshadowing, story structure, character development, and well-written dialogue is explored with a down-to-earth style. Her literary and cinematic examples make the notes relatable to all readers but are in no way “dumbed down” for tenderfoot writers. And her assay of the major Plot Points and Character Arcs are insightful and dead-on accurate.

Brontë employs the tools all writers use to construct her story, but she does it with intelligence and flair – subtle when she needs to be and theatrical in the right moments. Weiland skillfully calls out Brontë’s masterful mechanics with bright and personal analysis. To keep the readers/writers inspired and thinking for themselves, questions are peppered throughout the book.

And as expected, a Study Guide with a collection of more questions, suggestions and exercises designed to guide and incite analysis of your own writing project(s) is provided at the end of the book. The core elements covered are: 1) Structure & Plot, 2) Character & Character Arc, 3) Theme & Symbolism, 4) Conflict & Tension, 5) Dialogue, 6) Setting & Description, 7) Foreshadowing, and 8) Backstory.

My suggestion – if you’ve never read the novel – is to read Jane Eyre for the sheer pleasure of the language and storytelling, then go back and re-read it with the annotated notes for a fresh perspective.

Jane Eyre: Writer’s Digest Annotated Classics is available on amazon.

New Outlander Featurette with Diana Gabaldon

Ah, don’t we love it when Outlander Starz releases a new vid with even more glimpses of the most anticipated show of 2014 – if not ever, aye? And to that, I added NEW PHOTOS at end of this post and in the gallery to the right [labeled NEW PIC's].

Outlander the series, based on the novel by Diana Gabaldon, is ever closer. While the UK still does not have their premiere date, we all have our fingers crossed it will be announced soon – and for every other country who is eagerly awaiting the show.

While we wait for August 9th [July 25th for a few hundred lucky red-carpet-going fans], we have yet another featurette to savor – this one starring our very own Diana Gabaldon and Ron D. Moore, talking about the novel to series adaptation.

Lots of behind-the-scenes footage of Ms. Gabaldon’s visit to the set earlier this year and never-before-seen scenes are included. Can we ever get enough? Don’t think so. Enjoy! And thanks again, Outlander Starz.

And now for the fun part – at least, for me. Here, Ms. Gabaldon knows how to wield a sword and a dirk, and she isn’t afraid to show it.
