Quick update: Nothing accomplished in the past week...no updates, only journaled once, did not work on novel, did not work on a short story. How's that for honesty? *Hangs head in shame* Once again, I'm sticking with the same goals list. Not a difficult list unless you're a time-wasting procrastinator like me. Must keep asking myself, "Do you want this, or not?" Answer: yes. Reply: "Okay, then,
get off sit on your ass and write, damn it!"
--daily journaling (see today's entry below)
--I'm also going to work on one, maybe two, short stories for a couple of contests I'm going to enter.
Today's One-Minute Writer prompt is: Book/Movie--Reflect on a book you've read and a movie that was based on it.
My favorite book , Queen of the Damned by Anne Rice--which I have read four times--was absolutely massacred by its film adaptation. In my opinion, the best book of Rice's Vampire Chronicles because of its rich telling of the history and origin of her vampires, it did not deserve such a poorly written film. Honestly, the only redeeming quality of the movie was the soundtrack and, perhaps, Stuart Townsend, who not too shabbily portrayed Lestat--the best vampire character of all time (again, in my opinion).
