Yawwwwwwn

Boring weekend - not much to blog about . . .
On writing - tackling first pencil edit of 'Lucy's Island'; still waiting to hear from publisher re 'The Color of Passion'; no work done on novel.
On television - Request to Rockstar: PLEASE stop the insanity and get rid of Zayra. In fact, all contestants can go home and let Dilana take her rightful place as lead singer of Supernova.
Sadly - there's is nothing else on television this summer worth watching. Although... did catch 'The Jane Show' and was pleasantly surprised at the home-grown humour. If there's one thing Canadians do well (very well) it's comedy. Just ask Mike Meyers, Howie Mandel, Jim Carrey, John Candy, Catherine O'Hara, Martin Short, Lorne Michaels, . . . you get the picture.
Did see Fantastic Four on the movie channel and couldn't believe how unbelievably crappy it was! Hello!!! Every heard of Spiderman, Superman, Batman?? Comic heroes CAN be made into very successful movies if you get a decent screenplay. The producers should be ashamed of themselves for letting the F4 out of the editing room.
On books - just finished a few Mira books (Harlequin single titles) as part of on-going research into how to write the perfect romance. One was very cute - 'Underfoot' by Leeanne Banks; the other one was called 'Silent Waters' by Jan Coffey. Meh. Tomorrow I'm going to pick up 'Family at Stake' by Molly O'Keefe, which I understand is a very good read!

Sounds like you need a good soak in the tub, candles, a good book and a strong man to inspire new story lines for future projects.

Molly O'Keefe is not only a great writer but a super nice person. Hope you enjoy her novel!

Agreed on Supernova .. but don't rush it .. nother else on is worth watching.

Wylie Kinson said...

Craven - good suggestion! Think I'll run a bath and grab a book. Know any strong men??

Kimber - I read Family at Stake and cried my eyes out three times. I tried to send Molly a message via her website but it kept giving me an error message. Please let her know that I LOVED it and can't wait to read her next three HQN books.

Willie - I wait anxiously for Oct 4th when new season of Lost begins. Until then, Supernova is all I've got.

Molly O'Keefe said...

Hi Wylie! Thanks so much for the email and kind words. I too am stuck in that late summer there's nthing to watch on TV rut. Thank God for SUpernove and Entourage -- loooove Entourage!

I haven't tried Entourage yet. I'm thinking of getting the DVD's instead - so I don't have to wait ENDLESSLY for a new episode each week. I did that for Sopranos (first 4 seasons), 24, and Lost season 1. It's TOTALLY the way to watch these edge-of-your-seat dramas. Except in the case of 24 because you feel compelled to watch the whole thing in one sitting... HA!
