Movies

 

I’ve been going to a lot of movies lately. Why? Well, my husband and I now subscribe to one of those movie packages where you pay a monthly fee, and can then attend several movies a week for no additional charge. Although we’re allowed to see three, we’re mostly seeing two, and occasionally just one.

As a writer, I find that fun. I try to analyze each plot, note which ones I like and which ones I don’t. Most of them aren’t documentaries, so even if they’re supposed to be based on a true story they’re generally at least somewhat fiction.

Sometimes we just pick a show that sounds vaguely interesting, but we always hope to jump onto one that sounds a whole lot more—fun, exciting, inspirational, whatever.

And sometimes I get new ideas for my own writing from them. I’ve begun a proposal for a new mystery series which might not go anywhere, but, yes, I was inspired by movies!

I suppose that the fact I live in the Hollywood area also gives me ideas involving films, both novels and, occasionally screenplays—that I never write myself, although I’ve taken classes.
I’m wondering if the theater chains and companies that offer these multiple movies are actually making money. I hope they’re doing well enough to keep it up.

Do you go to movies? Do they inspire you to read or write?

And Happy Holidays to all of you! I’ll have a post here in early 2019. (Wow, that sounds as if it shouldn’t be happening so soon!) And when I do, I’m hoping to have some writing news to convey.

Happy & Sad by Linda O Johnston

Happy & Sad | Linda O Johnston | A Slice of Orange

Happy and Sad

My fourth book of this year, Visionary Wolf, has been released this month.  I’m happy about that!   It’s the ninth in my Alpha Force miniseries for Harlequin Nocturne, about a covert military unit of shapeshifters.  Happy about that, too.  It’s also my 50th published novel–very happy about that!

But it’s my last Nocturne, since the line is ending.  I’m sad about that.

What’ll be my next published novel?  The fifth book in my Barkery & Biscuits Mystery Series, For A Good Paws, scheduled for May 2019.  I’m very happy about that.

But For A Good Paws will be my last book for Midnight Ink, because that publisher is shutting down.   And I’m very sad about that.

That’s a career in writing, I suppose.  Good things and bad things occur, as in other professions, and traditionally published writers like me often don’t know what’s going to happen when.

So where am I now, and where am I going?  I’m both happy and sad that I’m still figuring that out.  I’ve got some good possibilities out there and am hopeful something will come of them, but we’ll see.

Meantime, can you see me?  I’m smiling… wryly.

What makes you both happy and sad?

Linda
