    • Hey, Charles. Yeah the genre does affect what I am in the mood to write. Sci-fi and thrillers push me to write the same genre. Everything else inspires me to inject more personality, love, and emotions in my work. Do movies inspire you? And does the genre influence you? Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Movies that make me want to write? Well, I’m not a writer but there are movies that make me WISH I could write….The Last Of The Mohicans…The Notebook…..Gone With The Wind….(Robert B. Parkers’ ) Jesse Stone. But, sigh….I’ll just have to settle for reading the sometimes haunting words of “the lonely author.”

  2. It would be wise to include the WORST movie ever written, produced and directed to elicit wonderful smiles from your reader’s faces. The year, 1987. The Movie……drum roll…….ISHTAR. Admit it, you laughed when you saw the title (or at the very least, googled it to learn more!) 😀

    • Very true about movies helping us develop character. When I learned to write screenplays it taught me to develop character through dialogue. Also, showed me how to write shorter, but more concise descriptions. Amelie was wonderful. Loved it. Oh, thanks for stopping by to contribute to this post. I appreciate it. Have a lovely day.
