Mindy's Movie Reviews

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

Should I Panic?

As I type this message away, there is 10 days and approximately 15 minutes until National Novel Writing Month begins....ALREADY!

So far I have, um.... nothing planned except for a bit of research from the conference.

My mind is completely blank this year and I'm hoping my little muse comes back from vacation to help me out as soon as possible.

I'm thinking writing about a teen girl who is going through all these visions from her forgotten past, yet she believes they're hallucinations. I might have somewhere in there about her finding out she has a mental disorder which is causing her confusion with the visions.

I know sounds confusing. I hope to eventually find a more stable story line soon.

So I'm wondering.

Are you doing NaNoWriMo this year?

If you don't know about it, it's a month where you write a 50 000 word novel in one month. You can go to www.nanowrimo.org for more information if you want.

If you are doing NaNoWriMo, what are you planning on writing?

Leave a comment! I would love to hear from you.

Conference Ends! Nano soon to Begin

The Muse Online Writer's Conference has ended with goodbyes, email exchanges and even a video to watch.

It was an amazing week full of learning, chaos and note taking. I have left this years conference knowing so much more than what I did before along with some amazing new friendships!

The best part of the conference besides all of the workshops, chats and the creator's (Lea Schizas) reaction to the video I made, was knowing that I don't have to research much for my NaNoWriMo novel this year thanks to some workshops that fit with my story idea...YIPPEE!

Nanowrimo is fast approaching and I couldn't be more excited. I have two weeks to plan my little heart out and I will be keeping you up to date with how the whole process is going.

With that note, I'm making it final that I will be updating this blog twice a week. Every Sunday and Wednesday, so please follow me!

Muse Online Writers Conference

It's been awhile since I posted on here as I just never found the time.

Right now, I am currently attending The Muse Online Writer's Conference and do I ever have brain overload!

If you are thinking of becoming or are a writer, I recommend signing up for next years conference.

I've been learning so much from some great professionals in the writing business.

One of the most important things I am learning is to get my name out there and ways how to promote myself and my writing more.

This has motivated me to begin blogging more on here about what's going on in my writing life and some interesting articles and/or tidbits I find that might help you with your writing.

Now I must get back to the conference before I miss anything!

(More information on how to register for next year's conference will come soon. Until then check out www.themuseonlinewritersconference.com)
