Yes, I have FINALLY seen “Dirty Dancing” as well as “Saint Elmo’s Fire”, which was awesome, and “Alice in Wonderland”, which was okay. “Dirty Dancing” wasn’t as what I imagined but I loved it. “Saint Elmo’s Fire”, however, was amazing. (Also Andrew McCarthy and Rob Lowe were yummy.) I highly recommend it. (It’s an 80’s movie though. Just saying because I know some people who don’t like 80’s movies…)
Reading (this won’t make sense if you haven’t read these books)
I read “Shift” by Rachel Vincent and am more than halfway through “Max” the fifth book in the Maximum Ride series. Rachel Vincent’s Shifter series is mind-blowing. I don’t know if you’ve seen and loved Buffy or not, but if you have then you know that feeling you get when Buffy wins? Or loses or loves or laughs or cries? All those wonderful emotions and the way you root for the characters and fall in love with them?
Well the Shifter series makes me feel that way. And that’s what I aim for when I write. I want people to feel what I felt when I watched Buffy or read the Shifter series. In “Shift” my heart ached for Jace and I cheered when Faythe kicked ass. I yelled at what Malone did, though he didn’t appear in the book, and I can’t wait for him to DIE. I hate that (fictional) guy almost as much as I hate Snyder, Maggie Walsh, Warren and Caleb combined. (This series is not actually for teens, but I think it’s fine if you’re mature or 16 years old.)
The Maximum Ride series is aimed for younger readers, like pre-teens and young teens, but I enjoy it. It’s funny, there’s lots of fighting and it’s an easy read. Perfect to relax. (In my case, I had my sister annoying me and asking me “Why not?” a thousand times, but it’s relaxing if you’re alone.)
I’ve hit 13 079 words! I wanted to have 75 000 by the 8th of April, which is obviously not happening. Anyway, it’s half-past midnight now, so… Goodnight.
