He’s doing it his way. I luuuuv that. You can practically see creativity coming off him in waves. His energy, the shine in his eyes. It’s actually quite sexy.

I just caught last night’s episode. Sigh. The romance is back, y’all. For awhile, the show seemed like it was on an unfortunate downward slide, but these past few weeks have shown why this tale of star crossed lovers and their motley coterie of friends and frenemies will not be denied. Fitz n’ Liv and … Continue reading Praise be, @ScandalABC brought back the romance! #StevieWonder
Of course I saw Beyond the Lights this weekend, and while it’s not gonna win any Oscars, I consider it a triumph. First, it was uber romantic, so y’all know I’m a fan. Second, Gugu Mbatha-Raw was beautifully broken and soo relatable. Who doesn’t know what it’s like to be bullied and feel like you have … Continue reading Love @NateParker in @BeyondTheLights #amwriting #erotic #romance
I’ve always liked Justin Theroux as an actor, but I had no idea he was an accomplished writer until I read a profile of the actor in a recent issue of Elle. Now I like him as a writer because you know, being one myself, we are often partial to one another. So without further ado, three reasons to like Justin Theroux that have nothing to do with his famous girlfriend, who shall remain nameless out of sympathy for him constantly being attached to her and cheated of his separate identity like he had no career or life before her. Yes *gasp* I know that sentence was way too long.

According to the Elle piece: Theroux cowrote 2008’s action comedyTropic Thunder, which made $188 million worldwide and earned Robert Downey Jr. an Oscar nomination. He also wrote 2010’s Iron Man 2, which took in $624 million, and cowrote Tom Cruise’s 2012 big-budget hair-metal spoof, Rock of Ages. I can’t vouch for Tropic Thunder or Rock of Ages. I refuse to see the first because Robert D’s in blackface, and I rebuke that bullshit on principle. I haven’t seen the latter because bad hair and that kind of rock music make me want to throw myself headfirst into an Erykah Badu CD.

I ran across this Ted talk from one of my favorite actresses Thandie Newton that I thought you might enjoy. I like to focus on character development a lot in my books, and her ideas around rejection and the definition and identification of self were compelling. Have a Kleenex handy.
