This writing thing has really gotten a hold of me. I can't think without a story, scene or other literary idea coming to me. When I watch movies these days I really notice the language that is used. It's something that occurs without effort. It's such a wonderful sensation.
This past weekend I watched two movies that contained some element of the craft, one more so than the other. The first was the movie "The Holiday". It is a romantic comedy and I love those. No, I'm not a guy whose into action flicks or science fiction. Love is what crowds my space primarily.
The second film was "Stranger than fiction". It is probably a bit wierd or slow for someone who doesn't like writing, but I found it to be entertaining, educating, and endearing. I'm sure of that response considering I watched it with my in-laws and during some scenes I was the only one laughing, but that is because I got it. All of you writer types might want to check it out. For those of you who like a good Romantic Comedy, check out "The Holiday".
