Watching silly movies with the guys

Actually they're watching football (soccer) now. You know; the one where you actually use your feet to kick the ball. But we watched a really silly movie first, and listening to the guys play spot-the-mistake was quite fun. Apparently it's okay for movies to be illogical, but only if they have enough action to keep you watching. Soul-searching without logic's not allowed, they say.

So I'll keep that in mind while I edit my writing tomorrow. No introspection without external action, unless I'm sure my facts can stand the readers' scrutiny.

Meanwhile I'll scribble illogical drabbles, and check for inspiration on Gather's Wednesday Writing Essentials. It doesn't take so long to write 100 words, and it leaves me free to turn round and watch all the goals.

Picking on movies must be a guy thing. I can't watch anything with my hubby without him pointing out every mistake he sees!

Try this site if you want to write a lot of words really quickly. I have a blog I'm posting about it next week in time for NaNoWriMo, but I live by this site!
