Its about FREAKIN' time!

About 3 pages last night. Ahhhhhhh.
That felt pretty good.
It needs some work, but what doesn't?
The important part is that I sat down and wrote it.

It's been a good couple of days. Feeling better. Been reading blogs and hanging on Twitter and Facebook. Family is all back home where we belong.

Was able to watch 2 romantic films recently. They were good stories but I didn't really feel the romance in them.

Don't hate me when I say this, but the last real romantic kiss that I have seen in film was the kiss between ... Edward and Bella in the first movie.
I know! I didn't want to type it, but it's true.
That kiss had...steam and I was holding my breath waiting for it to happen.
I only read the first book of the series but I have watched the first 2 movies (and only because of him). I don't like the writer's vampire concept but there is no doubt that the 2 lead actors have serious chemistry between them. Good or bad, it's there and almost tangible.

I can only hope to convey that when I write those 'oh' so important kissing scenes in the book.

Example of the complete opposite. Just watched Transformers 2. The two main characters don't really kiss. They get close but they never have that real connection with a good solid kiss. I keep waiting but it never happens. Not sure why. Don't know if it was written that way or they just plain didn't feel like letting them kiss but for me it just didn't feel finished.

Off to do some housework. Hoping to write some more tonight.


  1. I haven't watched any of the Twilight movies--or even a good romantic movie in AGES. I am due. :)

  2. I watched My life in ruins and When in Rome. They were cute but no heart stopping moments. No baited breath. No sighs. If you find a good one, please be sure to share with the class!
