Bad Books, New Books, and Have You Seen This Muse?

Well, I “finished” the Danielle Steele book. Actually I skipped a huge hunk of it. And probably didn’t miss much. When I read a romance, I want some romance (okay, maybe DS’s books aren’t exactly romance. But….) Get this…. the hero disappears, walks out on the heroine somewhere around page 220. He finally comes back (after she’s spent months and months looking for him-something I wouldn’t do if some guy got mad and deserted me) around page 458 for the last 10 or so pages of the book. And as typical (I guess) of a DS book there was lots of death and personal injury.

So, I’m on to a better book. Either another Nora book or I was thinking of starting Outlander again. I was checking out You Tube and I found some videos from people who want the book made into a movie. They put bits and pieces from other movies together and most videos cast Gerard Butler as Jamie. Now that I’d watch!! I’d post one, but there’s no code on the one I like best. I’m on a Gerard Butler kick. I watched PS I Love You the other day. What an AWESOME movie!!! I love when he sings.

And I’ve lost my muse. I don’t know why. Maybe there’s too much going on right now, but I haven’t been able to get anything done. I’m just stuck. I’ve rewritten the beginning of Dreamer’s Sea, but haven’t changed too much. But I think it’ll lead me to adding more of a paranormal element to it. Oh, will I ever get it done?

And I’m trying not to think of the query and synopsis for That Kind Of Magic. It’s too soon to hear from them.

AND I’m taking 4 days off from work. Today I’m off for a girl’s day out with my mom.

Oh, what the heck, I’m going to post a scene from PS I Love You. The song is stuck in my head.

  1. I’m not surprised about Steele’s book. I’ve been disappointed in her books. Enjoy your days off and your girl’s day with your mom. I haven’t watched PS I love you. It sounds good. I’ll have to watch it sometime.

  2. Told you before, I don’t like DS AT ALL.Isn’t P.S. I Love You sad? It looks sad. I can’t handle sad.Is it sad?Good luck finding the muse. Maybe she grabbed mine and they took a vacation somewhere?

  3. Marianne, it’s a bittersweet movie, very moving, tear jerker, but I wasn’t left bereft and hurling shoes at my tv. I can’t stand a movie that doesn’t leave me at least a little happy, and I certainly wouldn’t recommend one.This one I recommend highly!
