EDITED: I remembered that I’d seen another movie.

Last book I finished reading: Are These My Basoomas I See Before Me? by Louise Rennison. It was okay, although Georgia, the main character, is so stupid that she’s unable to realize which guy she really likes…

Writing Progress

The Way Wars Are Won

Word count: 61 966

Excerpt:

Maeve never thought she’d miss the sensation of blushing—cheeks burning, like a fire beneath her skin, heart pounding, head dizzy. She closed her eyes. “But I miss being human.” William’s hand still touched her cheek, and his right arm was still wrapped about her waist. If she were human, her body would react in so many different ways to his touch. “You’re wrong about things feeling better. I felt more when I was human.”

Kenna’s Choice

Ideas for new, improved plot. Might add a POV. Will be awesome. Too lazy to start working on it though, because I’d have to go through every chapter and write a mini-summary for the Plotting Spreadsheet. Argh!

Word count is same. No excerpt.

Movies (as per usual, bold=better than the others)

Webs

Bienvenue Chez Les Ch’tis

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole

Vampire Bats

The Wind that Shakes the Barley

Day of the Dead

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2: Wow… I laughed, I cried, I felt nauseous (because of the tension). Maybe on second viewing I’ll find plenty of things wrong with it, but, having seen it just once, I’m 98% happy with it. The 2% mainly stems from the epilogue. It was way too short to my liking. The Battle of Hogwarts was very epic.

Whip It

Satan’s School for Girls

The Usual Suspects: Amazingly, the twist wasn’t spoiled for me. (If you know me, this is quite an achievement–I’ll usually spoil it myself…)

Now that’s done, we’ll move on to answering this question: Why haven’t I blogged in so long?

Mainly, school. Between long school hours, homework, stressful exams, a huge school project, a trip to Italy (!!) and then my Italian correspondent staying at my place for a week, I haven’t been able to write, let alone blog. And soon I’ll be revising for 4 exams: the CPE (Cambridge Proficiency Exam–I need it as a proof that I speak English for unis), the Maths Bac, French Bac (in 2 parts), Physics-Chemistry/Science Bac.

Now I’m going to write a blog post about writing.

That is a quote from the Matrix, which I rewatched with a friend who HAD NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE.

Now, what else have I seen recently?

  • The Invasion: As a Washington psychiatrist unearths the origin of an alien epidemic, she also discovers her son might be the only way it can be stopped. Wow. Although I’m not too happy with the ending, it was amazing.
  • A Knight’s Tale: After his master dies, a peasant squire, fueled by his desire for food and glory, creates a new identity for himself as a knight. *happy smile* Ah, Heath Ledger… And Paul Bettany as Geoffrey Chaucer was awesome! Very funny. “You’ve waited your whole life for Sir Ector to shite himself to death?”
  • Iron Man 2: Because of his superhero alter ego, Tony Stark must contend with deadly issues involving the government, his own friends and new enemies. Awesomely funny movie. The technology is this one is even cooler than the first and I love the constant arguing between Tony Stark and Pepper Potts and the way their dialogue overlaps. Very cool movie and I canNOT wait for the third one.
  • (500) Days of Summer: An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn’t believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her. Oh my God! Joseph Gordon-Levitt is gorgeous in this and the character he plays is so SWEET. Loved it!
  • Kick-Ass: Dave Lizewski is an unnoticed high school student and comic book fan who one day decides to become a super-hero, even though he has no powers, training or meaningful reason to do so. This movie blew my mind. After watching the trailer, I had a certain vision of what the movie would be like. It was nothing like that vision—in a VERY good way. It spared no punches (tried to Google that expression, see if that’s correct but I couldn’t find anything). Now normally in movies, no matter how evil the bad guy is, he/she would NEVER get into a violent fight with an eleven year old girl. At least they would hesitate (maybe not if they’re sadists, but when they’re bad, they’re usually not THAT bad). All in all, awesome movie.
  • I’m convinced I’ve seen another movie, or two, but I can’t remember, so maybe not…
  • Ugh. I’m such an idiot! ROBIN HOOD! I saw Robin Hood!
  • Robin Hood (2010): In 13th century England, Robin and his band of marauders confront corruption in a local village and lead an uprising against the crown that will forever alter the balance of world power. Liked the movie. Loved Little John.

I’ve also been reading:

Graceling by Kristin Cashore

Gracelings are people born with an extreme talent, known as a Grace. Rare enough to be unusual, they are feared for their difference and often exploited for their skill. They can be picked out by the fact that they have two different-colored eyes.

Katsa, the protagonist, has been able to kill people with her bare hands since she was eight and is famous within the seven kingdoms for the violent acts she carries out on behalf of her uncle, King Randa. As of late, she has struggled to reconcile her conscience with these acts, but rather than challenge her uncle’s authority over her, she seeks to employ less debilitating attack strategies and build up a clandestine organization that promotes justice over cruelty and abuses of power. During the course of a secret mission, she meets Po, another Graced fighter and the first person to come close to matching her skill. A bond forms between the two that causes each to discover startling truths about themselves, the other, and the kingdoms.

I don’t even know where to begin. Maybe with Kristin Cashore’s genius. She’s such a good writer that because Katsa hadn’t realized a certain character was in love with her, I hadn’t realized it either. That’s just amazing. And because Katsa thinks her uncle, the King Randa, has complete power over her, I thought it, too, until Po pointed out that Randa didn’t, that Katsa could leave anytime she wanted to.

I loved seeing Katsa and Po’s relationship develop, and the few romantic moments between them are SO sweet. Indeed, the romance isn’t the main focus of the novel. Po’s grandfather has been kidnapped, and they need to find out by who and why. Along the way, Katsa changes from a “brute” (that what she thinks she is) who doesn’t have many friends into someone who cares about others, and it’s a gradual, natural change.

What else can I say about this book?

OH! The one thing that REALLY bugged me is the fact that Kristin Cashore started sentences with “Well, and” about 20 times throughout the book. It’s weird, and only once did it makes sense.

Doesn’t this sound weird to you: “Well, and that was answered.” ?

It sounds so…off.

Apart from that, I LOVED it and I was so disappointed when I reached the end of the book. I want MORE.

Snuff by Chuck Palahniuk

Cassie Wright, porn priestess, intends to cap her legendary career by breaking the world record for serial fornication porn movies, on camera, with six hundred men. Snuff unfolds through the perspectives of Mr. 600, Mr. 72, Mr. 137, and Wright’s personal assistant, Sheila. With his satirical narrative and thorough research, Chuck Palahniuk reveals through these four characters the little-known facts and histories of not only pornography and sexual deviance, but also acting and life in and out of the spotlight, and throughout the novel shows the rarely acknowledged presence of pornography in modern America.

Wow. First Chuck Palahniuk book I’ve ever read and man is it strange, crude and weird. And there’s a twist I thought I figured out, but didn’t, which was a nice surprise. Gotta say, Snuff is NOT for the faint of heart or for the easily grossed out.

The Dust of 100 Dogs by A.S. King

Pirates. Love. Adventure. Loss.

In the late seventeenth century, famed teenage pirate Emer Morrisey was on the cusp of escaping the pirate life with her one true love and unfathomable riches when she was slain and cursed with “the dust of one hundred dogs,” dooming her to one hundred lives as a dog before returning to a human bodywith her memories intact.

Now she’s a contemporary American teenager and all she needs is a shovel and a ride to Jamaica.

Just like Kick-Ass, it surprised me by not being what I expected. And just like Kick-Ass, this was a good thing. The best parts were the flashbacks to Emer Morrisey’s life—she goes from being a poor, Irish girl to a feared pirate who murders and steals. Awesome book. And I saw Saffron and Emer as being the same person, which apparently they are not.

♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

Out of all the books and movies, the titles of ones I think are the best are in red.

Okay, so I thought if I waited a few days, I’d have a clearer mind and opinion about this series. But considering I read all 3 in 8 days, it was a whirlwind of emotions. Action. Tension. To write the review this series deserves, I’d need to reread them all, and I have other books to read and write, so I don’t think I’ll be able to do that. Instead, I will say whatever pops into my head. I won’t really review it, won’t mention the plot (if you want to know the plot, it’s on Amazon and Wikipedia) and criticize anything. I’m too flhfugh to do that.

The Hunger Games

I wasn’t sucked in immediately, but once I was, I was hooked. I read every moment I could, and when I finished it, I moved on to the next without hesitation.

Catching Fire

Oh… Finnick Odair. *sniffles* WHY?!

Mockingjay

I cried SO much when Prim died. I just couldn’t stop. And I preferred Gale over Peeta, but I can understand Katniss’ reasons for choosing Peeta. It does make sense, but she got along so much better with Gale.

And that’s it. Seriously. I’ve editing and plotting to do, and other things to blog about, and movies to watch. And homework.

School

I knew I was going to be busy this school year, but oddly enough, all I’ve done since going back to school is:

  • go to school
  • do homework
  • eat
  • sleep
  • go to school
  • do homework
  • watch TV
  • a little bit of reading
  • a teeny tiny bit of writing
  • do more homework
  • go to school some more
  • go to ONE party
  • sleep
  • sleep
  • go to school

Notice what pops up a lot on this list?

I guess it’s understandable I’d have a lot of homework–I AM in my before last year of school… But school is so much more tiring this year, and even though I haven’t had THAT much homework, I’m always tired, so my free time goes to waste.

Oh, and as it turned out, there are people in my class I know, namely Naomi (http://greyperception.wordpress.com/), a very good friend of mine. But because of circumstances, we only have normal maths and sport together. Wanna know these circumstances? I’m sure you do. Here they are:

  1. We’re not in the same Physics/Science group
  2. I take Spanish LV2, she takes Italian LV2
  3. I chose Italian LV3, she chose HIDA (history of art)
  4. I chose maths as my specialty (different from the other maths), she chose HIDA
  5. While I’m in normal French class, she’s in FLE because she doesn’t speak fluent French (for those of you who don’t know/forgot, I’m French and go to an International school in France)
  6. For English, History and Geography, we’re in different groups

What else can I tell you about school? Oh, there are 3 guys in my class. That’s two more than last year. Of course that’s only for the, well, “core class”, I guess you could call it, which is 1ereL1, meaning Literary 11th grade 1 (there’s 2 Literary 11th grade classes).

Movies

  • 7 days: Boring.
  • The Godfather: Enjoyed it.
  • Life of Brian: Loved it, especially the end.
  • City of God: Now this one… This movie was MIND-BLOWINGLY GOOD. I HIGHLY recommend it. The actors were unknown/had actually lived in such conditions, so the acting is perfect. It could have been a documentary. And despite having many scenes where kids kill other kids, those are not the most shocking. The most shocking, horrible scene is when one character shoots two little kids in the foot. Just writing that sentence is making me feel sad and horrified again. And this is coming from someone who must have seen at least a hundred horror movies. Oh, and if you’re wondering, I watched it in the original Brazilian Portuguese (with French subtitles) which makes the movie much better than if I’d watched in the dubbed French. Dubbing should be illegal–usually the voices sound so fake because they’re not truly acting; all they’re doing is speaking, they’re not also running through the forest like the real actors were, climbing a tree, etc.

Books

  • Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov: I started this book in January and finished it in September. I read it on and off for NINE months–does that give you ANY idea of how well written the book is? Nabokov’s prose is beautiful and vivid, but what truly made it difficult for me to read the novel is Humbert Humbert (hereafter referred to as “HH”) who, by the end of the book, is completely insane, unstable, unreliable. And you could think that HH is the one with the power in his relationship with Lolita, but she’s the one who manipulates him. Recommend it.
  • Fang by James Patterson: Guilty pleasure, enjoy the story and certain character but not the writing. Dialogue is mostly cheesy or immature for characters of those ages. Entertaining nonetheless.
  • Third book I’ve read recently gets its own paragraphy thingy.

Stolen by Lucy Christopher

Wow.

Summary from Amazon (UK):

Sixteen year old Gemma is kidnapped from Bangkok airport and taken to the Australian Outback. This wild and desolate landscape becomes almost a character in the book, so vividly is it described. Ty, her captor, is no stereotype. He is young, fit and completely gorgeous. This new life in the wilderness has been years in the planning. He loves only her, wants only her. Under the hot glare of the Australian sun, cut off from the world outside, can the force of his love make Gemma love him back? The story takes the form of a letter, written by Gemma to Ty, reflecting on those strange and disturbing months in the outback. Months when the lines between love and obsession, and love and dependency, blur until they don’t exist – almost.

Characters

  • Ty: At first, you hate him, just like Gemma does, then as she learns about his past, the way his father never cared about him, the way his mother abandoned him, the way he ended up living all alone at the age of 11, you feel sorry for him, you understand why he is the way he is. And at the end, when Gemma is confused about her feelings for him, so was I. You know you should hate him, but he never truly hurts Gemma.
  • Gemma: I read a one star review of this book on Amazon that calls Gemma boring, and I actually have to agree with them on that one. (They say the whole book is boring–that’s where I disagree.) Based on what we find out about her as kid, I’d say she’s interesting, but maybe as a teen she wanted to blend in, be accepted and liked, so she stopped being herself. But I suppose one thing I can say in her favor is that she tries to escape several times and even when she realizes she cannot escape, she’s alone with him in the Australian Outback with the nearest town VERY far away, she doesn’t give in to Ty. She could have easily given up, completely given up, she could have spent her entire time crying (she does spend some time crying–I mean come on, she’s away from her family, her friends, her home and everything she’s used to), but she doesn’t.

The word “fuck” in this novel

It was so nice to see the word be used in the book. Most of the time, writers are afraid to use it, but people say “fuck” when they talk, especially people like Ty–he kidnapped a girl, he’s not going to say stuff like “Gosh darn it” or “Frick.”

I, for one, say “fuck.” But I know not to say it in front of teachers, extended family members (I say extended because in my house, around my parents and my siblings, almost anything goes), strangers, etc. But “fuck” is just a word–kids reading it in a book won’t become juvenile delinquents just because of it. Nor will they become juvenile delinquents if they start swearing, or swearing more often.

If you believe this, well…does that make me a juvenile delinquent? Because I get good grades, never ditch school, have never stolen in my life, never smoked, never done drugs, never had sex or even kissed a boy. So I’d say that if you firmly believe swearing leads to bad behavior, you might need to rethink that belief of yours. Ditto if you believe novels in which characters do bad thing influence people, because I’ve read books such as “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess, everything by Ellen Hopkins, “Speak” by Laurie Halse Anderson, etc.

Writing

I have written, I kid you not, 667 words since the 1st of September. Pathetic or what? So I’m thinking of using NaNoWriMo to help me finish writing The Way Wars Are Won, just like I did with Kenna’s Choice. It’ll be the kick up the butt I desperately need.

The post title is a quote from “My Soul To Save” by Rachel Vincent.

I’m back! And I’ve got lots of things to blog about: movies, books, writing, spending 6+ hours in a car stuck between my siblings.

First, though, an explanation for the lack of blogging and tweeting: internet stopped working on my laptop. My dad and I fiddled with the settings to fix one problem and ended up causing another without even solving the other problem. Typical. My dad fixed internet problem last night, or rather this morning, because it was 2 a.m.

Moving on.

Movies

Do NOT judge me for watching Disney movies. When you’re lazy like I am and you sit down on the couch, you end up watching whatever’s on. Anyway, the ones I watched weren’t too bad.

  • Dadnapped: Melissa’s father is a writer, he gets kidnapped and she decides to save him. It was okay. Cliche: police ignores a kid’s call because a kid can’t possibly be telling the truth. Oh, your dad’s been kidnapped? You saw it on a camera, you have proof? Call in a missing person’s report in 48 hours. Ridiculous.
  • Princess Protection Program: Demi Lovato plays a princess who moves in with a normal American family to protect her country and mother from some evil dictator guy. Meh.
  • Wizards of Waverly Place: The movie: It was missing that something the TV show has, but overall I liked it.
  • The Nanny Diaries: IMDB summary: A college graduate (Annie) goes to work as a nanny for a rich New York family. Ensconced in their home, she has to juggle their dysfunction, a new romance, and the spoiled brat in her charge.
    I loved it! Brilliant and I loved what Annie did at the end.
  • The Bounty Hunter: Funny, but if wasn’t for Gerard Butler, I don’t think I would have wanted to see it. Unexpected ending.
  • Friday the 13th: Part 8: Jason Takes Manhattan: When a series of movies go on and on, the movies tend to get worse, but I actually liked this one. Of course, it’s ridiculous that people running for their lives trip and stumble so much, but that happens in all horror movies. In real life, it’s not like that. My dad would know: he once had an ostrich running after him. Once he was safe, my mom told him she’d never seen him run that fast when he played rugby. And did my dad trip/stumble/fall? No. When a person runs for their life, the adrenaline rush and fear means they don’t trip. And the “Jason Takes Manhattan” part took ages to appear.

Books (there will be spoilers)

My Soul To Save: I finally finished reading it, but I’m still working my way through 4 books. Damn it! I shall start no more books, except the 3 books I have to read for school.

Anyway, what did I think of this book? I loved it as I love all of Rachel Vincent’s books. Kaylee Cavanaugh is a banshee (written bean sidhe in the book) and in this book, the second in the Soul Screamer series, she wants to save a singer’s soul: Addison Page sold her soul to become famous and rish, thus saving her family from poverty.

BIG SPOILER: Addison’s sister ends up also selling her soul, making it even more difficult for Kaylee to save their souls before Addison dies. They know in advance that Addison will die on a Thursday, only days away. I was really hoping Addison wouldn’t die, but she does. And Kaylee can’t save Addison’s soul. Sure, she saves Regan’s, the little sister, but Addison’s soul will be tortured for all eternity.

I wonder how Kaylee will deal with the guilt she feels. Also: for a YA series, it’s pretty dark. Which I LOVE, because I’m weird that way.

Writing

My goal for August is to write 610 words every day. This will bring me to almost 60 000 words by the 31st. (Exactly: 59 995 words.) See how bad it’s going? I’m 3552 words behind.

My goal for September is 500 words a day.

Other problems: I’ve got another time line problem. Here’s what I emailed my critique partner:

It is so hard writing when you go from one POV to another, and have 8 POVs in total, and character X dies in chapter 14, on a Thursday but because chapter 20 takes place on a Wednesday, X is still alive. Not to mention character Y does/says stuff in chapter 14 that doesn’t make sense anymore because of a secret revealed in chapter 20. All while making sure I alternate POVs often enough and keeping track of my huge cast of characters that keeps growing.

Let’s say that the time line is a long piece of rope. That piece of rope is one giant knot that I’ve been trying to undo for the past few days. I have made very little progress.

Word count: 42 888.

Ghost Stories

So the first of August, I went to see Ghost Stories. Maybe you saw my two tweets?

Ghost stories starts in 20 minutes. Apparently it’s really scary.

and then

Lights are dim. Cold air. Loud, scary noises. Wondering if this will scare me.

Having seen a LOT of horror movies, and only two of them scaring me to the point where I didn’t finish them, I wasn’t sure this could scare me. Did it?

Answer: Yes. It freaked me out, I jumped, I gasped, my heart raced and I was on edge for the next time something would make me jump.

The advantage a theater has over horror movies shown in cinemas or at home is they can involve more of our senses. We not only see and hear things: we can also smell and feel things. Such as the cold and the smell of [deleted].

At the end, they ask the audience not to reveal the twist, so I won’t tell you anything. But if you like horror movies and you’re looking for a good scare, and you live near London, then I urge you to go see it.

“Ghost Stories”, I think, has reinstilled a fear of horror movies in me. Example? Please, I beg you, don’t laugh, but in an episode of Wizards of Waverly Place, a ghost does this scary face where his head becomes huge and it made my heart race. But I think it’s more that I was still jumpy from “Ghost Stories.” But I was terrified of the dark for the following two nights.

Now I’m fine.

Mostly.
