There's nothing I love more than a good story. I watch tons of movies.
who was she or what the heck was she?
Watching Eric Bana swim, run and fight (McYum) made me want to get my fitness on. Maybe I'll do some crunches later. ; )
I enjoy the action/thriller genre so I'm really happy to find a great movie like this. Plus I'm writing an action thriller. You can't see me but I'm raising my eyebrows and nodding my head. lol
I also liked the characters and the irony of them being so weird while telling the audience Hanna is an abnormal human. Cate Blanchetts' characters obsession with her teeth was so gross it was awesome. Although I can't remember his name I liked the whistling trait on the psycho killer character too.
What I'm Reading:
I've been reading books about writing for inspiration.
I just finished How to Write a Sentence: And How to Read One by Stanley Fish .
It was cool. He has some very nice examples of great beginning and ending sentences in there.
Then I read a great book about storytelling but returned it before writing this post and can't remember the name or author. I did take some great notes like:
'Character motives are directly related to their relationships with each other.'
'The inciting incident upsets the balance then comes the rising action.'
My story starts right when things go wrong for my protagonist and I've written several scenes which I want to revisit keeping in mind:
Does solving one problem lead to another?
Next on my list to read is The Architecture of Drama by David Letwin, Joe Stockdale, Robin Stockdal.
What are you watching or reading that's good?
