Mindy's Movie Reviews

A blog that went from discussing about the writing life to reviews of movies


Hey everyone

Here's my update on my writing life. I received an email from NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) about a free one book published deal that was organized for the winners of NaNoWriMo from last year. I am definitely going to take them on their offer after doing much review on the company that is helping out.

Before I do that however, NaNoWriMo 2008 is just around the corner and I have been doing nothing but planning for my novel this year. I don't want to talk about the plot quite yet until after Nano is done but I will tell you that so far I really like my idea and see myself doing well with this.

Besides that, I have come to a complete stand still on my play that I'm trying to write for my tutor with Winghill which is stressing me out. Hopefully I'll be able to break out of it soon.

So that's all for now my lovelies. Please leave a comment about how you're doing and what not.


So yay for me. I am so close to finishing my novel that I mentioned in my last post. I have about 20 pages left to go which is really not a lot once I get into the groove of things. I'm really trying not to think about editing any time soon. It's the most awful part of being a writer, but it has to be done. I might just find an editor to help me out (I am pretty bad at determining if any of my grammar is any good).

So yes I must mention that I did receive comments back from my tutor. She said she liked my play thus far and that I'm off to a good start (this was sent back to me about 2 months ago lol). I'm supposed to write five more pages which I have already wrote 3 so I'm almost done. It has took me 2 months almost to write these 5 pages all because I was stuck on something a character of mine said and I didn't know how to have another character respond to it. I'm determined to get it done!

So yea, I think I'm coming along quite nicely when it comes to my writing career. I just need to get my arse in gear to get published which hopefully will be very soon. I'm thinking about taking more courses with screenwriting through a college online which should be loads of fun. I'm also participating in a free writers conference for an entire week in October. On top of that NaNoWriMo is going to begin in November and I CAN'T WAIT!

So that's all I have to say about my writing stuff right now. Drop me a line and tell me what you're up to.

Talk to you soon.
