It's an interesting thing, writing a blog. It feels like I'm writing a letter to a friend, except there's the chance that some of the readers are people I've never met. (A slim chance. This isn't exactly a widely publicized blog.) At the same time, they're letters to my future self, reminding me what I happened to be thinking that day.
For example, I wrote a post on playing with that old `It's a Wonderful Life' scenario of what if this or that character was never born? Only to realize, looking back, that I probably just thought it was a nifty idea because I was outlining a story about parallel universes at the time.
Then there are the book and movie musings that only cover one aspect of the story. I wrote a post about the love story in Megamind. If I'd written about the character arc instead, I would have pulled on completely different points -maybe even contradicted some of my thoughts from when I was dealing with the love story. (Like whether or not Megamind was evil in the opening. I still say he was never as evil as he thought he was, but he was definitely selfish and needed a good kick to make him shape up and stop feeling sorry for himself. But hey, that's what character arcs are for.) The best thing about book and movie discussions is that stories are open to so many interpretations.
I haven't exactly been a consistent blogger. Life keeps tossing me distractions. But I do enjoy these letters. I hope you all do too.
