Week in Short

It's FRIDAYYYYYY! :D I love weekends. Going to a bonfire and hayride tomorrow with a bunch of people I haven't seen in like, a year.

Song of the week:
Over You by Daughtry

Must Read:
Imposter Syndrome

In case you missed my fangirling on Tuesday, nine TV spots for Deathly Hallows were released. They made my brain melt. In a totally good way.

Adventures in Agentland:
Exclusives don't equal good/bad agent

How to reject an agent and how to inform them of offers of representation
Gatekeeper's how to handle the "Who offered?" question

Janet Reid:
Response to GK's "Who offered?" post

Nathan Bransford:
Cozy mysteries

Pimp My Novel:
Tip of the day: Discipline

Steph Su Reads:
Flat characters in issue books?

Upstart Crow:
The line between middle grade and young adult

Writer Unboxed:
Prologues -- yes or no?

Backstory blunders and their fixes

In Movies:

  • Picture Perfect -- I loved this movie though I wish I didn't have to scream "You are so BLIND!" through half of it. Often-used topic with an adorable twist. 9.5/10
  • Notting Hill -- One of my new favorite movies. 10/10
  • Letters to Juliet -- OMG. Awesome. A beautiful, heartwarming movie for the decade. I really want to go to Verona and write a letter to Juliet now. 10/10
  • The Covenant -- Mom wanted me to watch this movie because she saw it a long time ago. Only redeeming qualities were Steven Strait, Toby Hemingway (my personal fave), Sebastian Stan, Taylor Kitsch, and Chace Crawford. I studied through most of it. 4/10
In Writing:
First read through of Burning Bridges is complete! I started revisions this week. Cut 6,000 words, a character, and a few loose plot threads. Planning on making time to work some more this weekend.

Everyone have a GREAT weekend and I'll see you on Monday!
