- 2012: Loved it! (I ignored the impossible things and enjoyed the action.)
- District 9: Wow. Great acting by Sharlto Copley as Wikus van de Merwe. It was so horrible to see him turn into an aliem and be hunter by the MNU and those Nigerians wanting to cut off his arm…
- Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel: I saw this with my little brother and it was funnier than I thought it would be.
Oh, and with my class at school, we saw 3 movies this year:
- The Royal Tenenbaums: I loved it.
- Dans la Vie: Crap. When the movie ended my first thought was “That’s it?”
- Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans: Heh, okay-ish. Being 16 years old, I don’t really appreciate silent movies. Maybe when I’m older. (That doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate old movies like The Little Princess (1939 version, which I ADORED) and Gone with the Wind.)
I reached 30% of my novel on Thursday but I now have a little problem. I can’t really complain, I guess, but my characters have come to life and changed the plot. I now have to rewrite the plot outline for chapters 14 through 50. Yay.
Another couple of problems:
- The timeline isn’t straightforward
- There are so many characters which means…
- That there is a LOT going on which means…
- It’s not easy to keep track of everything (and yet, somehow, I manage to)
- It could be difficult for readers to follow the story because of all that
I’ll guess I’ll figure something out when I finish the novel. So far I’ve had a few ideas: instead of 1 chapter=1 point of view, I could make it 1 chapter=1 day with several points of view; or make sections dealing with every’s story, for example: Part 1: Morana’s story, Part 2: Lucifer and Drusilla’s story, Part 3: Anne’s story, etc.
Doctor Who: Amy’s Choice
IT’S TONIGHT!!!!!! *fangirls* I can’t wait, although I don’t really like this “5 years later” stuff…
I have to hang my head in shame because I still haven’t finished reading “Lolita” or “A Clockwork Orange” or “The Sweet Far Thing” or “The Forest of Hands and Teeth”. BUT I have been reading “Lolita.” Instead of page 109, I’m on page 162. I admit, that’s not a lot, but at least I’m reading.
About Lolita: I am in love with Vladimir Nabokov’s writing. It’s beautiful, even though I sometimes have no idea what he’s saying. Which is why I’ll be able to reread it in a few years.
