The Making of the Perfect Chick Flick

This had been a horribly hot summer, at least it was in Texas. Hot, dusty and full of pollen. My blog posts and all forms of creative writing have suffered under a Zyrtec-induced slump, which kept me confined to indoor spots.  This week, the weather took a dramatic turn and we are under a tornado watch. Texas weather, we do everything BIG.

During my lock-down, I took advantage of my Netflix membership and watched several movies, mini-series and read a couple of good books, including The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The #1 Ladies’ Detective Agency and Pillars of the Earth. All of which I will share with you in the coming weeks.

I am currently involved in a cool project with other movie bloggers at Anomalous Material. The Hollywood Fantasy Movie Draft  is kind of like fantasy football, but with movies. Each of us picked 7 actors and a director for our fantasy movie. I am making the perfect chick flick. A romantic dramedy starring…. you know me so well…yes, Hugh Jackman. You can see the rest of my cast here.

I will be working on my movie pitch this weekend. I would love to know who would star in your perfect chick flick.

Stay tuned for the completed movie pitch on September 14th at Anomalous Material.
