With Book 3 in the hands of my beta reader, last week I treated myself to seven days of mostly just reading. It was wonderful, relaxing, and with hubby out of town, very quiet. Just me and the cat, and dinner out with friends one night. This week will be different. I need to get started on the book description, and a list of authors to contact for blurbs. If anyone wants to volunteer, feel free!
Then there’s still the title, of course. Epiphanies and lightning bolts of ideas are in short supply around here. I keep waiting for the perfect words to fall from the sky and appear…somewhere. Billboards, songs, books I’m reading – still nothing, so far. The waiting continues.
This past weekend was Keanu Reeves-themed – not planned, it just kind of happened. On Saturday, hubby and I saw John Wick 3. Not as good as the first one, in my opinion, but still a darn good summer movie. On Netflix, we watched Always Be My Maybe, a rom-com (hubby loves them), in which Keanu has a small role and plays ‘an extreme comedic version of himself’. Trust me, it’s hilarious. The movie was enjoyable, and if you’re a fan of rom-coms, I’d recommend watching it. I’ve been a Reeves fan since Point Break, and was also thrilled to hear he’s voicing a character in Toy Story 4 – which I hope to see in the next couple of weeks.
Several weeks back, I mentioned Black Summer, a zombie apocalypse show on Netflix. After watching the first four episodes, I decided these characters were too stupid to live, and I was rooting for the zombies. Weeks passed, and I gave it another chance. Stupidity is still rampant, but there are also plot holes big enough for a zombie horde to easily pass through. Verdict: I’m done. Life is too short.
