(Monday I’ll begin the “cleaning up your manuscript” posts again. I figure we all need a break over the weekend.)
Last night GMR and I rented a couple of movies.
We picked “Knowing” to watch last night, and saved “The Soloist” for later. . . “Knowing” was interesting but there were holes in the story, some bad acting, and as well, they “cheated” — what is “cheating?” – more on that later in the “cleaning up your manuscript” posts, but I know it when I see it. I’m not sure what I thought about this movie. There were a couple of scenes that were supposed to be dramatic and I burst out laughing and poked some fun –not good. The people on fire scene was most disturbing to me – I was afraid it’d bring back my horrific Fire Dreams, but luckily it did not.
But today I’m meeting some women friends to see Julie/Julia. Yes, I actually have a few women friends–although I rarely see them because I’m too reclusive – I do have a good excuse (lately anyway) – I need to complete the manuscript to Secret Graces and get it to my publishers!
I’m not sure what to expect with the movie, but I’m keeping an open mind. I wonder why Julia Child snubbed the author/blog/book. But, I suppose that kind of thing happens.
I’m going with Lauren, Christy, and Francis. We’re all connnected through the Hart Theater. Lauren’s husband plays drums in the orchestra/band, Christy and Francis are actors and singers, and as well Francis is directing “Walking Across Egypt”–GMR is in that play. Christy also has her own business called “Sugar Buzz,” and she’s a photographer (she took my author photo). Lauren and I were for a short time a part of “The Concierge Three…” They are fun and beautiful and I adore them.
