Planning a Schedule…When There Are So Many Movies To See

For the last few days, along with writing, I’ve been trying to create a writing and editing schedule. I admit it’s been a bumpy road thus far. The current story, PHANTOM WARRIORS: ARCTOS is going well, but other stories are threatening to intrude and don’t even get me started on the edits I need to get done. As much as I loathe to admit it, I’m a VERY linear writer. I do ALL my writing work in a linear fashion. I’ve tried working other ways, but haven’t had any luck sticking with them. This of course is challenging when you truly need to switch between projects. I haven’t given up on a schedule yet. I mean it’s still January, right? Right? RIGHT?

Other than playing with my schedule and ordering new book covers, I’m making plans to see Underworld and Haywire this weekend. We have friends coming over on Saturday, but I still think we could squeeze a movie in beforehand. If not, we’ll just have to shoot for Friday afternoon/night and Sunday evening. I’m not picky as long as we get to go…and I get my word count in. And of course, there’s still The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to see. Have any of you seen it? If so, what did you think?

  1. Yeah, it’s January, but if you blink a couple times it turns into December. 🙂

  2. I’m blinking, Bernard. Is it December yet? *ggg 😉

  3. I enjoyed the movie, and so did my Dad. I’ve read the book, but he hadn’t. After watching it, I went home and watched the Swedish version on Netflix. I preferred the American version, though both were good.

    Be warned that there is some very disturbing material in the movie, including a brutal rape scene.

  4. Toni, I’d heard about the rape scene before going in. I knew it was going to be bad. All I can say is it’s a good thing they showed some serious payback or I’d have been pissed about that scene. It was definitely tough to watch, but it was a terrific movie.
