Star Wars, the new one

Fear my Jedi Powers bitches!

This pretty much sums it up. There is an article floating around about how the main character Rey could easily have been replaced with a boy. What are your thoughts? I haven’t read the article just a comment one of my friends left. It made me think about the film. They are right. There are only a few spots where it would be awkward. I am not going to say much about that…I am not into spoiling movies, I hope I don’t

So anyway, it was a great film, better than I had imagined. I had to force myself to watch the three original movies and the three new films  liking the third one because it filled in the missing gaps, as to why Vader became the way he did and Leia and Luke were separated.

This new installment fits right in. I enjoyed it. Perched on the edge of my seat in shock, excitement, and happiness. Familiar faces brought a smile to my face, although I was a bit saddened that I didn’t see any Ewoks, the wookie sufficed.

It’s a great movie and I have to admit I was petrified when I heard they were going to make another Star Wars. Equally as scary was learning that Disney now owned the rights…YIKES. Although I have to point out that here lately Disney films/ pixar have taken on a more realistic point of view…I just didn’t want the character to become lost or cartoonish…

Han’s Solo…Prince Leia, Luke, and the new Vader, who got his but whooped by his ….oppssee almost let it out…Anywho…it’s going to make for an interesting next two films. I can’t wait. I want them to come out like…NOW!!!

What did you think?

And what’s up with there not being any Rey toys?? I would think Matel would be all over that shit!!

Writing Woes

So the yoga lasted two days….I am going to give it a shot again this week. Also I plan on picking up my Zumba. Last week was a bit of a wash for me.

I posted up my potential cover on a writing forum and essentially it tanked. No one was mean or anything like that, lots of good constructive criticism. There was also concern about the title, which I was thinking of changing anyway. There are just too many Jaded out there.

So I have been playing around with Photoshop. It is so fricken hard. I think they need to scale back on the icons. However I did find several useful YouTube videos that at least got me started. I might play around with it today, we’ll see.

I have been slacking on the school thing too. I think I fell into a slump, but I’m coming out of it today. I swear! I have to respond to two students discussion, submit five pages of a short story I have to write for my sci fi class, and submit a short for my other fiction writing class. I have already written the story so that’s merely a revision.

I also need to write at least 1000 words and unfortunately this blog doesn’t count.

So in short today will be productive….I hope.

And the week begins…..

Today I embarked on my Yoga Journey. I found this awesome video, Yoga with Adrienne. She’s thorough and doesn’t try to force you into poses. I am going to try to do the routine every day this week. I went to work so relaxed and calm, which was needed because I am taking phone calls today instead of doing my usual billing work.  I’ll let you know how it goes.

In other news I have to submit the first five pages of my epic short sci fi novel that I have to create. Um…I have started this, but I have to say that short stories are hard for me. I tend to want to write more and more. So I decided to use the world of a story I have already created for a novel of mine and create brand new characters, but still keep my novel characters as well. So it’s a subset of my novel. I hope it makes sense. I am hoping this class will propel me into finishing my sci fi novels. I have about four of them just sitting on my computer collecting dust…errrr….cyberspace dust.  Is that even a thing?

I plan on editing one page of book 2 of my Addison series and do more marketing research for my self-publishing journey. I might even start writing a new story. I have lots of ideas floating around in my head.

And lastly I plan on doing Zumba A on my playlist today.

I’ll report back if I accomplish all of this.

Frankenstein Review

Wow, so I just finished Frankenstein by Mary Shelley and now wonder why I was afraid to read this book. Okay I listened to it, but still.

It’s nothing like the movies portray. You know the Mad Scientist piecing together a man in a hug dark mansion alone. Nope, didn’t happen. I love she insinuated how he looked without going into great detail. She was more interested in evoking a feeling and I have to admit she nailed. It.

I feel bad for the monster Frankenstein created. It’s not his fault that he is hideous or that he is even alive. It’s his creators fault. Not saying that eh killings were justifiable, but I can see how this can lead t intense anger.

What did you think of it?
