Recharging the creativity well

Between writing, I like to recharge my creativity by reading books and watching movies.  This past weekend, I read among other things Ghost Ocean. It wasn’t quite what I expected from the title. In fact, it had very little to do with ghosts unless you counted be haunted by your past. But I did enjoy it and no, I’m not writing a review of it but I will rate it on Goodreads. I also started two other books. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get into either of them and put them down.

As a result, most of my time was spent watching movies and other shows on Netflix.  I rarely watch TV any more although Hallmark had a movie out and I rarely miss a Hallmark movie. Some day someone is going to write a how-to-write emotionally packed books using the Hallmark method. But I digress…

Usually get far away from my writing genre as possible (to avoid influence on my writer’s voice), but this weekend I had no such stipulations and watched several stories with romantic elements including It’s Complicated, Shrek, the Final Chapter, and Sabah with Malice in Wonderland (2009) dancing on the fringes. Of course, I also watched the Gravedancers and a really bad SciFi movie that shall remain nameless. On the documentary front, I enjoyed Hiroshima, Yellowstone, the Appalachian Trail, an episode of The Universe, and Paranormal Kids.

The story fairy has filed some of the information in the documentaries for later  use.
