So it is now fall. I am still jobless but there has been some positive movement on that account so I might have one soon...hopefully.
I'm focusing on a few things in my writing. I've been working on my western Sanctuary on and off but I haven't made too much progress...though there's quite a bit more of it than what I have posted on dA. I have written the first paragraphs of two very distinct detective stories...I don't know what I'm going to do with them but I can probably cobble together two novels out of them. Though I know one of them is going to be shorter than the other. I really need to get myself in gear though. I still have to edit my book so that will take a good chunk of time in addition to the writing I want to do.
While I might not have had much success in finding work I have had a fairly successful life to this point. This is something I have to keep reminding myself of when I start feeling down. Lately though I've been feeling pretty damn good. I am loving life right now even with money problems. It really is good to be alive and living in a country that while it has problems is still a good place to live. Lots of places have it really rough out there...
I have been to couple of movies lately:
If you have the chance and you like music and coming of age films then check out God Save the Girl if it is playing in your area. While people complain about the state of movies (and rightly so in some cases...thank goodness we don't have to put up with all of those unfunny parody movies that seemed to be the rage in the 00's anymore), films like this one are great gems. It is just a breath of fresh air. A great work of art and it is what a movie should be. Don't wait on seeing it.
I also watched A Walk Among the Tombstones. Don't write this movie off as a Taken clone. It is a solid detective story that really gives Liam Neeson another chance to show his chops. He is also surrounded by great talent in this film. While it is in color I think that AWATT would look great in black and white. I hope that we can look forward to more from this character.
Speaking of the incomparable Liam Neesons, I heard a rumor a while back that he would be willing to reprise his villain role from Chris Nolan's Batman movies on a certain television show featuring a certain hooded, archery based, vigilante. Just putting that out there...I hope that the showrunners take notice.
Gotham is a pretty good show...if you haven't checked it out you should. Though Alfred is probably the worst part. He has these just crazy mood swings. It's really weird. But most everyone else on the show is a real treat to watch.
Well that's all for now...
See you next time!
