I wanted to dedicate this post to my my A to Z Leader Nicole at The MadLab Post and one of my favorite bloggers and an A to Z host Alex Cavanaugh at Alex Cavanaugh.com. The two of them are great examples of how to blog about movies.
I also want to list others who have movie related themes or post for A to Z:
S.L. Hennessy at Pensuasion
Nicole Pyles at World of My Imagination: Best Crying Scenes in a Movie
Lynda R. Young at W.I.P. It
Arlee at Tossing It Out
Tasha at Tasha’s Thinkings
I don’t remember when I feel in love with movies. I have been a movie fan all my life. Movies have always been and will always be my favorite escape, figuratively and literally. Hint to family and friends, if you can’t find me, if I don’t answer my phone, if I am MIA for a while, most likely, I’ve snuck off to the movies.
While I don’t see movies multiple times in the theater like I did when I was younger (Titanic, Speed and The Matrix – 6 times each in the theater), I can still watch my favorite movies over and over again.

Third Week Of Edits
In order to stay up to date on my edits, I have a number of accountabilities (that’s a word) in place.
- the writers dojo – As a part of NiNoReMo group, I have set a goal to edit 12 chapters in the month of March. Ali cross and the rest of the group are super supportive and I don’t want to let them down.
- Beta readers – I am sending chapters to my beta readers as soon as I finish editing them and it’s a good sign when my beta’s are calling me to send more chapters. They are breathless with anticipation (anyone know where that quote comes from?). And, one of my beta’s said, I can’t wait to see if the main characters get together, but she picked the wrong two main characters, so she is going to be in for a surprise. That’s what I hope every reading my book when they read it. I suck them in and then turn the tables on it. hahahahaha(evil laugh).
- DFW Writer’s Conference – I want my beta’s to finish reading so I can have all edits done and ready to go for the conference in May. All those agents out there are just waiting to read my manuscript. 😉
Do you work better when you’re held accountable or are you one of those internally motivated people (
hate envy proud of those people)?

My Favorite Blog of the Week
Rejection Love Letters – John Tompkins is a writer who has turn rejection into triumph. Ok, maybe not triumph, but he certainly has the right attitude. I have been LOL’ing over his sight all week. He turns his rejection letters into love letter.
