Good morning folks. I’ve not done a lot of writing the last couple of days. I did write 668 on the fanfic I started last week but yesterday was just one of those days where I couldn’t find the time to get anything done.
Friday night I went with my girlfriend and my buddy Stefan (Stefan’s Daily Gaming) and his partner to see IT Chapter 2. It was really good. I think I liked the first of the two films a little better but as a whole its a good story and I like what they’ve tweaked from the book. I know with adaptations you’ll never be able to hit all the notes a book does but I think with this one they’ve got it spot on. For me these films aren’t scary, I like them but they don’t make me squirm in my seat, and there wasn’t any real jump scares that got me with this one. I’m not taking anything away from the two movies, horror is very subjective as we all fear different things and although I love these films, they don’t rattle me like The VVitch and The Ritual did. I think I’ve learnt with Horror movies in particular that if I re-watch them they don’t get to me, but if I don’t then they’ve had an impact on me.
Right, back to writing. I’m going to spend the bulk of the day editing on CS1 one with the odd dive into the fanfic piece. I’ve got a lot of work to do with the opening of CS1 which I think will follow through with the rest of the book, but we’ll see.
I just want to wrap up by talking about a couple of audiobooks I’ve been listening to. Firstly the first three books of Chuck Buda‘s Son of Earp series of supernatural westerns. I’ve really enjoyed these three books, and I never thought I’d say that about a western! but Buda has spun me around on them. They’re about the teenage son of the legendary Wyatt Earp and he’s life as he tried to become the man he wants to be. Well worth checking out.
The other one I want to talk about is Dirty Deeds by Armand Rosamilia. This one is a crime thriller about a man who is paid to kill children, but there’s a twist to what he does. I really liked this one. Rosamilia manages to craft a really deep story dealing with a really dark topic while keeping a good sense of humour in it. If you like your crime thrillers, please check it out.
That’s it for now. I’m off to get some writing done.
