Quote of the Month:
“…it isn’t always easy knowing who you are and what you want, because then you have no excuse for not trying to get it.” Paul, from Boy Meets Boy, by David Levithan
SCBWI Conference in Westminster, Maryland- Two days of stuff I love: information on writing, inspiring speeches, chats about children’s books, and lunch with fun friends who watch a lot of the same TV and read a lot of the same books as me.
Fiction Books Finished:
None (I read the same 800-page book from late June to mid-August—gripping, but long.)
Non-Fiction Books Finished:
**** Time Management from the Inside Out, by Julie Morgenstern- excellent book on how to live your goals.
**** Once– appealing indie film about two musicians in Dublin who help each other deal with their personal problems by making a debut album together. I enjoyed the soundtrack too.
**** Dr. Horrible– Joss Whedon’s adorably tragic online mini-musical about shy Dr. Horrible’s conflicting quests to be accepted into the Evil League of Evil and to date the girl of his dreams, Penny, who he met at the Laundromat.
**** Mad Men, season 1- evocative, addictive show about advertising writers in the early 1960’s.
*** ½ Flight of the Conchords, season 1- the first show I’ve seen where each guy in the duo is the straight man. You can also check out their videos on You Tube.
*** Supernatural, season 3- I wrote a 700-word love-letter to this show here. 😉
*** How I Met Your Mother, season 3.
