Will Return in October

It's been two weeks since I last updated this blog so I wouldn't be surprised if no one is even reading it anymore.

I've been so busy with writing that I just haven't had time to post to it, in addition to working my full-time job.

I'm trying to get three writing projects out the door by the end of the month!

So, I'll be back to blogging, hopefully, in October.

Ciao for now!

Lots of Writing

Isn't that a pretty desk?

I wish I had it. I have so much writing to do this month. That's where I need to be sitting.

Got a 10,000 word story to revise; one 10,000 word story to write and another 4,000 word story to write. All by September 30th.

So my blog posts will be sporadic at best. Between writing, working, reading and researching, I'm really pressed for time.

I did, however, as a reward to myself for completing my writing goal on Monday, nice and early, go see 3:30 to Yuma.

Great movie! Well done and the usual display of
acting chops by Messers Bale and Crowe.

If you don't catch it at the theater, give it a looksee when it comes out on DVD.

Okay, I gotta go write.

Another Movie Opening this Week

Clive Owen has a new movie also opening this week. It's called Shoot 'Em Up

To be honest, I'm not sure what the plot is, but who cares? I'm there!

It's got both Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti, another one of my favorite actors.

Now, as much as I LOVE Daniel Craig as Bond, I still think Clive would have made a great one. He's got that brooding, smoldering, darkness in him. And he's great doing action stuff.

Ever seen hin in Sin City? He's very dark, but heroic. Badass but kinda sweet, in his own dark, tormented way. And, oh yeah, he's also very easy on the eyes!

Anyway, Shoot 'Em Up is also starting this Friday!

Fall Movies

Looks like there's a banquet of movies coming out this fall that I want to see. Another reason to welcome fall.

To be honest, this summer was pretty much a disappoinment movie-wise. At least for me. Harry Potter was about the only movie I really enjoyed. The rest were pretty disappointing.

The first fall movie I want to see is 3:10 to Yuma which stars Russell Crowe and Christian Bale.

It's a western but I've been on a western kick for quite some time so I'm there for this one!

I'll be highlighting other upcoming fall movies I want to see, so stay tuned!

Summer's Nearly Gone! Yay!

Another image of a woman writer that I like. I'm not sure where it's from. Found among the ruins of Pompei?

Anyway, it's the middle of the three day weekend. I managed to make a little progress on my story that I want to submit this week.

I'm also getting ready to start two stories that I want to submit by the end of September.

I'm so glad it's September. I love the fall. I love the colors, the cooler weather, the holidays, the whole back to school thingy, even if I'm no longer in school!

My favorite time of the year! I've also noticed that lots of good books get released in the fall and it looks like there's a slate of excellent movies coming out this fall.

The sequel to Elizabeth, starring Cate Blanchett is coming out. Viggo Mortensen, Russell Crowe, Denzel Washington, Christian Bale and Clive Owen all have new movies coming out this fall. Yum!

So, yeah, I may be one of the few people who's not sorry to see summer almost on it's way out.
