Progress

Last night was the first time in a long time that I was able to sit down and get some work done. I mapped out a novella and a novel. What did you do last night?

Drink Me!!

Tick…Tock…Tick…Tock

Oh boy!

Time is running out! I need to sit down and read, read, read, and read. I need to call and make arrangements as well for cake and food. I need to do a final check list of whose coming 🙂

So much to do….and I’m still writing novella one that goes with the story. I don’t know if this is a good idea so late in the game….but we will see.

Let’s face it i am one of the biggest procrastinators that I know. I need to stop.

This Week

This week plan on creating blogs on both blogs, marketing my upcoming e-book (any advice would be greatly appreciated it), and wrapping projects up.

On the Writing Block:

Finish Twisted Desire, book 2 of my Twisted Series. This is merely a revision. Once it’s finished I can start the beta reading process and editing as well.

Finish writing book 2 of my Catalyst series. I am about one third done.

Read through TGB book project. Once this is done I can send it to the editor.

Put together a list of projects I need to put together. I am hoping to publish a collection of short stories sometime this year, I am still writing them. The collection is entitled The Reaper.

In other news I plan on going to the gym four times and adding zumba back into my life at least 3 times. Oh and yoga, I need to do yoga.

What’s in plan for this week?

Progress Report

On the plus side I managed five days of working out!! Woot woot, thank goodness for exercise videos on youtube. I am still able to do my group exercises. This ia great because I don’t drive due to my limited vision. I also managed yoga twice this week.

I am taking the day off to watch some kids and I plan on attempted pilates and yoga tomorrow.

In my writing world, I focused on editing book two and thanks to The Kingsmen, the movie, I drafted nine novellas. How awesome is that? I love getting inspired by watching good movies.

I have been actively posting and interacting with lots of other indie publishers. I am learning alot, so if you want some free advice head on over to http://www.kboards.com. You can post questions and get real answers. Not saying that other forums aren’t but these people have published.

I have found lots of good advice about my cover, it has helped me alot. I plan on posting at least two blogs this upcoming week and eventually making a schedule of sorts.

Wish me luck and thanks for reading.

W is for Woody and Will

Just a few of my favorite movies!!




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?

S is for Saoirse and Scarlett

Both of these actresses are acting chameleons! They can be comedic, serious, depressing, and even mysterious. They have even taken risks which in most cases wound up in their favor in the end.

I first saw Saoirse Ronan within the hit film, The Lovely Bones. Have you seen it? It’s an equally if not more powerful book. It’s about a young girl who goes missing and it’s later discovered that she was killed by a neighbor. It brings to question the idea of life and death and the bridge that connects the two. Not to mention the cinematography skills are amazing in this film.

Then she busted outs onto the scene with the movie Hanna, which if you haven’t seen it, you should. It’s awesome, I hope they make a sequel. Also another fun fact is that the Chemical Brothers did the music for the entire film. It’s filled with action and twists and turns in the plot that leave the viewer guessing what is going to happen next.

Then she was in the movie The Host, which based off of the book written by Stephanie Meyer, you know that chick who wrote Twilight. It was a decent film, but I felt it was lacking something.

Moving on to great and talented Scarlett Johansen, seems to have been acting forever. Did you know she has a music album out?

The first movie I remember seeing her in was Lost in Translation with Bill Murray. Great movie, very interesting concept too. This was followed by The Girl with the Pearl Earring, which I do believe I saw first now that I think about it…Anywho she can play anything you throw as her.

Then she stared in a great family film entitles, We Bought a Zoo!! Amazing movie, I mean I think almost every movie Matt Damon is in is an instant his.

Then she became an instant hit with The Avengers movies, making appearances in Captain America’s films as well.

She played a controlling woman in the comedy Don Juan.

Most recently she played in this sci fi film about being able to access 100% of her brain. Lucy? It was alright…

What is your favorite film by these ladies?

O is for Owen and Orlando

Just from the title I bet you know who I am talking about. If not, I’ll give you a hint….

The Haunting…

When I first saw this movie, I wasn’t sold that is was strictly a stray film, to it seemed more like a mystery. But then people started dying. I know he was in several previous movies, but this was my recollection of him. Then I saw Meet the Parents where he played the ex-boyfriend…HILARIOUS!

But two of my favorite roles are when he plays Jedidiah, a tiny cowboy with big dreams in the Night at the Museum movies, and John, he husband in Marley in me. I love, love, love that movie. What about you? I wanted to right out and buy a yellow lab.

Can’t wait to see what he plays next!!

Then we have Mr. Orlando Bloom, whose most notably remembered for his performances in The Lord of The Rings Trilogy as well as The Hobbit Triology.  He plays an elf so damn well. Do you agree?

J is for Jason

Beginning with Jason Bateman, is there anything this guy can’t do? I mean he is so versatile with his acting. The first movie I remembered him was, Juno, you know the one that launched Ellen Page into stardom. In this movie he plays a creepy guy who actually thinks that he’s cool enough to swoon a pregnant school girl. Needless to say his plan backfires.

The next film that I really enjoyed by him is called The Switch, which is where he plays opposite of Jennifer Aniston, proactive woman who wants to raise a child on her on. So she finds a donor. Her best friend at the time is Bateman, I almost spoiled the greatest part, but you should watch it.

He goes on to complete several comedies and continues working for Arrested Development. Great show btw if you haven’t seen it. I can’t wait to see what he comes up next.

Mr. Segel is one hilarious man who has is own way of doing things. He is most notable in his performance in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. It’s HILARIOUS. Great film

I enjoyed him in The Four Year Engagement as well.

Not to mention he plays on How I Met your Mother opposite of Alyson Hannigan, you know Willow from Buffy the Vampire Slayer!

What are some of your favorites?

Love for Liam

I mean if I played that game I would purposely find him and befriend him. This was single handedly the best super bowl commercial ever. What do you think?

Before he was an ass kicker in Taken, Liam played a very important role as Oscar Schindler and if you don’t know who he is, then you need to invest your time in researching him. He was a business man who was able to save victims of the Holocaust from their death by employing them. There was a list made and he tracked everyone on that list down. As far as I’m concerned the Academy really screwed up by not giving him the Oscar. I mean this man was a fricken bad ass!!

Sidenote: When my girlfriend was in grade school she dressed up as Oscar Schindler for famous people day!! How cute is that?? Point to take away Oscar Schindler was an amazing human being with his flaws, but what he did for so many people was AMAZING!

Now it’s obvious that Mr. Liam continued his streak of badassness!! I mean when I went to the movies to see Taken, I never expected them to make three additional films. How cool is that? Best part of the movie ever:

This scene has gone on to spur hilarious meme’s and even a Family Guy episode. How awesome is that?

He has sense gone on to play in several action packed movies. How cool is that? He is the white version of Samuel L Jackson’s role from Pulp Fiction!! I mean if he read the bible people would listen. This is the same for Liam. They have one of those voices that demand attention and strike fear in to the heart of most people.

I can’t wait to see what he comes up with next!!
