So, I received an extension on my final deadline by a week – which I’m thrilled about, to no end. The final chapters I’m currently writing are on WordPress MU and I seriously need every single second I can have to write these chapters. Thank you, Melody – a thousand times thank you! I will be completed with the book by April 26 – followed by an extensive editing process and final author review where I will have the chance to update everything to reflect the changes that have taken place within the WordPress software over the past several months. Those WordPress folks are a challenge to keep up with – but the development of the software is pretty exciting, so it’s been a real pleasure.
During the course of writing this book – I’ve tried not to allow myself to become distracted with my usual distractions. I’m already easily distracted, as a rule – that’s just my nature. I’ve kept myself away from the TV and the News programs. Friends would swear that I’ve dropped off the face of the earth and have hit true hermit status over the past several months – but it will all come to an end soon enough and I’ll be back to my usual routine. Because I have this absolute need to have background noise going on at all time while I write – – I turned to movies to keep the noise at an acceptable level. I can’t even tell you how many movies I’ve gone through over the past 5-6 months. Blockbuster and Netflix love me and I’m sure they are about to offer me an honorary membership..I’m sure of it.
I have watched every single movie John Cusack has ever made during the writing of this book – – most of them during the last month, or so.. which has lead me to two things:
- John Cusack has never made a bad movie
- I will forever associate WordPress MU with John Cusack – I couldn’t help it if I tried
As I write this, I’m watching Pushing Tin. In the last 2-3 weeks, I’ve watched:
- The Ice Harvest
- Must Love Dogs
- America’s Sweethearts
- Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil
- Grosse Pointe Blank
- Say Anything
- One Crazy Summer
- Better Off Dead
Arguably, not the biggest blockbusters in the world – – but I love his quirkiness. I think my favorite John Cusack movie is actually one of his oldest – Better Off Dead. Fantastic flick! Do you have a favorite John Cusack film – – or aren’t you a fan at all?
