Weekend & Movie Thoughts

We had a lovely, and very sunny weekend! There was much UFC watching, working out, walking, lovely meals, some shopping, and just good times. It was so good that I didn't want it to end. :(

But here I am, on a Monday, hoping that the sun remains for the rest of the week. Even if the forecast says otherwise, lol.
Trying to keep positive thoughts, instead of the negative ones that plagued me a few weeks ago. So far, so good. I suppose that having a whole week to recharge and tidy up a lot of the stationery clutter I had around really helped. In a way, doing that also helped me get rid of some of the mind clutter. Which is always a good thing!

So, it's a new week. What have I got planned? Well, I started reading another book that I've had on my TBR pile for a while, but couldn't wait to get stuck into. And I intend to get started on brainstorming Sierra Fox #3, by pulling out all the notes I already have and putting them into some sort of coherent stream. I'm pretty much ready to get started on it next week.

The only thing/s that will stop that from happening are edits. If I receive edits for Sierra Fox #2 or The Hidden #1, then I won't be able to get stuck into the first draft. Otherwise, I can't wait! :)

We watched two movies over the weekend: The Devil Inside & Real Steel.

I'll start with Real Steel because it was so crappy. The story sounded okay--a futuristic about fighting robots and an ex-boxer dude. The actual execution was pretty bad. I just couldn't get into it. The main character was very unsympathetic. Actually, he was an a-hole. And his son wasn't any better. Put them together and I really didn't care what the hell happened to them. Not a fan.

The Devil Inside, I really enjoyed. I'm a sucker for demonic possession/exorcism stories, so I knew I'd be totally sucked into this one. I thought it was very well written, and told. The actress who played Maria Rossi was really impressive, and freaky. There were a lot of creepy scenes, and the tension kept me glued to the screen. I thought it was great! I know a lot of people had problems with the ending, but I don't know how else they expect these documentary-type movies to end. Seriously, if you sit down to watch one, you should already know that you're not going to get a concrete conclusion. Or a happy ending. I would gladly watch a sequel.

Okay, think it's time to finish off this post and look for a stationery something for my daughter, grab my notes, read a little, and possibly switch off the computer. :)

See ya!
