Book: The Heist (Janet Evanovich + Lee Goldberg)

I am a fan of Janet Evanovich. I had no idea who Lee Goldberg was.

OK, that's out of the way. People who read Janet Evanovich's books are surely fans of Stephanie Plum, the clumsy and sometimes smart bounty hunter who keeps getting into trouble and finding herself in seemingly impossible situations and yet, somehow, manages to triumph over evil.

Evanovich is no stranger to co-writing stories with others and I have read a couple of them. Can't remember which but they are sitting somewhere on my bookshelves and I am not up to pulling the books out one by one. Each of those co-writing projects are good because it gives the stories and the writing a different feel.

With The Heist, I think the 'co-writing effect' is so much more obvious because it reads like a movie. A film that you can conjure up in your head, all by yourself.

The usual way Janet Evanovich writes is to write it so that we can see things from the protagonist's point of view. We don't see what we…

Excellence

I want to share this quote from Daily Inspiration:
"Excellence can be attained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical, and expect more than others think is possible." Anonymous Many of us seek excellence. Others get stuck in a quagmire of perfection that tends to frustrate and vex the spirit. Perfection drives the person in a stress-induced state. Seeking excellence frees the individual to soar on their own accord in areas of expertise.
This is a great formula, road map, or unique strategy to follow. It takes one on a road that goes above and beyond the norm.
When your desire is to stretch yourself to a new level, to soar far beyond the mediocre, and strive for excellence, consider trying out this formula in your life. Care more, risk more, dream more, and expect more. _________________________________ Get this Free Daily Inspiration App: http://bit.ly/sHLiiS

A Werewolf Boy (2012 Movie)

Sometimes, I wonder why I do this to myself. I do. OK fine. Eye candy. LOL


I didn't intend to write anything about the films and series that I happen to watch but the reason why I have decided to put my thoughts into words is because:-

Song Joong Ki's eyes. jekkrhjsdafhkawrhlkisfiopewhlkznf. FYI, he doesn't have a script. Throughout the movie, he says nothing. He may have no lines but when he does speak, it kills your heart. I want to kill the writer. The ENDING. Don't leave me hanging there, dude. I want a clear answer and don't freejing leave it to my fojing imagi-frekking-nation!This movie is going to last with me like another movie which I will mention a little later.It's one of the closest thing to a horror movie anyone's going to catch me watching. I am just your average RomCom lady. FYI, moths scare me. So there.It screwed my idea about 'love' and what it means The other movie that left a deep impression with me is quite similar but different …

Women Who Don't Want To Sign Up For Motherhood

When it comes to babies, everyone's expected to go 'awwwwww.....' so cute. Or with pets, I am sure people face the same type of expectation. If the expected response is not forthcoming, you are perceived as 'cold' or 'heartless' or 'inhumane'. How can people not awwwwwwww at kids and pets? They are cute as buttons, right? CUTER than buttons, by the way.

Well.....no.

There is this perception that women are born to naturally have maternal instinct and want to have babies. I think this is so far from the truth that I caught myself laughing. Sure, if you tell people you don't want to have kids, they will say something along the lines of 'selfish', 'full of yourself' or just 'alien'. Everyone wants to have kids. Or once you have kids of your own, your whole world will change and your maternal instincts will emerge and consume you and make you not recognize yourself.

Well, the latter is kind of true. But not everyone wants to h…
