So, I feel a little bad about how harsh I was on Chris Weitz in my last post. Sorry, Chris Weitz. I guess I should clarify: I didn't hate the whole movie. I was willing to go along with it until about halfway through, then it lost my good will, but still -- there were good things about it. I still think it's a good exercise for examining storytelling choices, though.
I'm a writer & artist. I live in Portland, Oregon with my husband Jim (also an artist) and our small daughter, Clementine Pie. My novels are Dreamdark: Blackbringer, Dreamdark: Silksinger, and Lips Touch, which was a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award. My next novel, Daughter of Smoke and Bone (Little, Brown) will be out September 27, 2011. I believe our dreams are REAL THINGS, not wisps and air, and it is our job in this life to make them come true, because no one else will do it for us, and because this is our one and only "wild & precious life"!
