Every once in a while you catch a good movie and it leaves a lasting impression upon you. I chanced upon The Lake House last week and I am glad I finally got to watch it till the end. I find a connection with it because of my afinity to writing. The story was a literary adaptation (from David Auburn) which retained its story line through a smart interchange between naration and live acting. I liked that. It gave the movie a unique approach especially when done between two timelines. Needless to say Alejandro Agresti’s direction suited the film.
That’s the thing about writing, be it for blogs or publishing. You have to make things interesting from your point of view and in your own individual style. Easier said than done really! I personally think I’m going to need more guidance on that matter. Especially since I found out that in order to get your work published you will need to complete your manuscript first. COMPLETE! Wow, that’s going to take me ages to do at this rate! And to think publishers are fussy about what they choose to publish. Imagine spending months if not years writing what you think is good, readable material only to have it rejected for not being marketable.
Guess that’s the challenge of being a writer.
If you’re into writing may I suggest going to www.writing.com and www.creativewritingonline.com for pointers. Apparently online writing is big for budding freelance writers these days. You can actually get paid for it if you have an interesting enough subject.
Oh well, better get working on my manuscript… 🙂
