Today I start back on BITE ME, I’M YOURS (that would be Book #1). I have some little things to fix, but I need to figure out how to cut some of it (it’s about 16,000 words too long for my editor--and I want to give it to her to read). I figure if I go through the pre-edit checklist (like I did for My Sunny Vampire) that should help. I also need to ask myself the same question my editor did with that story - Is this necessary? I hope I’m able to answer honestly. Yeah, cutting stuff isn’t my favorite thing. Heck, I’m sure every writer feels that way.
Sunday felt like a nice free day (especially with that long project finally finished) so my husband and I watched two movies we own on DVD. We discovered they were quite similar, too. “This Means War” starred Chris Pine, Tom Hardy and Reese Witherspoon. “Killers” starred Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. Have you seen either? Killers came out two years before War, yet I don’t remember it ever being in the theatre. I found the DVD in the $5.00 bin at Walmart and I liked the actors, so I bought it. After watching it (and it was cute - we'd seen worse, much worse), we then watched War (which we had seen in the theatre) and that’s when I realized how similar the movies were. There was lots of action (spy shoot-em-ups/blow-em-ups), romance (where the woman is kind of in the dark) and some crazy (bizarre) stuff thrown in there. Even though they were similar, it made for a nice evening and gave my brain a break!
On Saturday, the Penguins lost the first game in the Eastern finals (bummer!), but I have high hopes they’ll win tonight. They better!! I want to see them go all the way. I'm greedy like that.
So, what was the last movie you saw?
Have yourself a great Monday.
