Never Blend In
Hi everyone! Thanks for all the comments about writing -- very thoughtful and interesting. I'm going to write a post trying to address these concerns at some point when my feeble mind starts working again.
I think I might be the only person who saw Milk in the theater with and without an appendix. It's good either way and I hope it wins best picture. Don't think it will because a lot of people aren't comfortable with Sean Penn kissing James Franco onscreen for an entire minute (coolest scene ever) and certainly not comfortable with the ways in which we as Americans have mistreated and discriminated against homosexuals (the historical footage is disconcerting to say the least). I know Slumdog Millionaire is the favorite, but I found the story to be way too corndog for my taste -- Dickens in India with a completely unbelievable love story. Beautiful pictures, but a little boring. If I can't buy into the characters, I can't fall in love with the story. Most of my writing is character-driven so it makes sense. I've always had trouble with plot. I never know what will happen next.
