LOVE AND OTHER DISASTERS
I am interrupting my growing list of posts (including my first ever school visit! and my SCBWI recap! ...both coming soon) to delight momentarily in SF’s and my new favorite film.
Behold LOVE AND OTHER DISASTERS - available for instant download on Netflix.
SF discovered this gem a few days ago and insisted that I view it, which I promptly did, and here is what I learned...
...Love is a process. A choice. And not an event.
And secondly, writing and finishing a book or a screenplay takes courage.
I have been so focused on selling my book for the last year that I have lost sight of the fact that I actually wrote one, dangit!! So today I am changing my tune, Babies! SF and I applaud ourselves (and you) for following our dreams, and trying to succeed at something that we are all passionate about.
And lastly, we discovered that the most fascinating stories are simply the ones that we are all living. And for that, we are thankful.
P.S. we may speak with a slight British accent from now on and use the word, “Babies” a lot -- as in, “You should read our blog, Babies,” or “Check out this movie, Babies." ~Because that's the way the adorable girl in the movie talks :-)
