What a comfy place it is, this halfway house. Seeing its lights glowing warm and welcoming after the long, uphill struggle is too good for words. And now that I'm here I just want to sit back and put my feet up for a while with a vodka and lemonade (or two) before starting out on the next leg of the journey.
I won't be able to stay long because I can hear Leo calling me. He knows he's losing Sherry and without my help he has no chance of winning her love. The poor man; you can't help but feel for him, can you?
When I dusted off the original couple of thousand words I'd written of this manuscript I decided I'd finish it within 100 days. I've now worked out that for me to keep to that deadline I'll have to write an average of about 500 words per day from now until 9th June. Can I do it? I don't see why not because during the past 18 days I've averaged 690 words a day even though 7 of those 18 days were non-starters. I've said it before but I'll say it again. I will finish it! I will, I will, I will!
FILM REVIEW Cherry. This is for you. The film, An American Haunting, was... different. I found it quite spooky in places but the bits that were meant to be really scary weren't. Although it did almost make me lose my popcorn a few times thanks to the combination of unexpected movements and booming sounds. Waaahhh! Blimey - is that all it was? Recognise it?
All in all it was a decent enough film albeit somewhat 'Exorcist-y". Sissy Spacek played her role well as did Rachel Hurd-Wood in her role as the daughter supposedly being tormented by some kind of entity (I won't say too much because it'll spoil the twist in the tale).
If you like classic horror films that are based on keeping you on the edge of your seat rather than the shock factor of blood and guts, go for it. Otherwise forget it.
