So I watched this movie yesterday. I actually quite enjoyed it. Even though there were some changes from the book, it was a good movie. It was also better than the first one. I was happy with the actor they chose to replace Pierce Brosnan, as well. If you liked The Lightening Thief, you should definitely like this one. I hope they make the third one as well!
I was invited by a good friend of mine to watch Searching for Sugar Man at the Heritage Theatre in our city. This is a documentary about a man named Sixto Rodriguez, who had I never heard of before. This movie tells an absolutely amazing story and I loved it. I don’t usually watch documentaries, but I am very glad I watched this one. I highly recommend it.
L.M. Montgomery has written novels that I absolutely love in every way. Her characters are always strong, driven by their dreams and passions. I’m currently re-reading Anne of Green Gables again for about the third time and I’m loving every minute of it. This is the story of a girl who lives her life to the fullest. Before I read these books I always thought that the book was going to be lame and boring, but when I finally read them, I discovered how genuine and brilliant they are. Definitely one of my all time favorites. I’m sure I’m going to re-reading Anne of Green Gables and Emily of New Moon many times throughout my life.
I would recommend L.M. Montgomery to anyone and everyone. Also I would highly recommend watching the Sullivan Entertainment Anne of Green Gables movies. They are great!
I am pretty sure that every writer at some point fails to find inspiration. I know I have, at least. I’m going to list a few ways I usually find inspiration when I’m completely out. Hopefully some of it is helpful!
1 – Go for a walk – To the park, a forest, a beach or wherever you happen to want to go!
2 – Re-watch a movie you absolutely love, with characters you care about.
3 – Listen to music that makes you dream.
4 – Walk in the rain, dance in the rain, or simply listen to it.
5 – If you hate rain – Bask in the sun.
6 – Re-read a favorite book.
7 – Go to a coffee shop and people-watch. (Not meant to sound creepy.)
8 – Take a nap and while falling asleep, think about your writing/story/characters.
9 – Go outside and take pictures of random things.
10 – Go to a bookstore, be it a used bookstore or a new one. Walk through the aisles and look at the books.
These are all things that help me find inspiration. I don’t know if any of it is at all helpful, but there you have it!
