"9 to 5" - The Original "Horrible Bosses"

The premise of both movies - "9 to 5" and "Horrible Bosses" is pretty much the same.

"There are no new ideas. There are only new ways of making them felt." ~Audre Lorde

Here's how the plot goes: A "Three Musketeers" group of disgruntled employees team up to form a plan and kill their boss (or bosses), and a Comedy of Errors ensues.

"9 to 5" stars Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda and Dolly Parton - and - working in a fast-paced office environment myself, it's fun to see Jane Fonda struggling with the office's super-old-tech equipment.

I definitely enjoyed this one - and, it's currently on Netflix. Yay!

Editing begins on Betrayer

Having finished up the latest round of edits on Hybrid Space, I'm starting this morning with editing book 3 of Fallenwood - Betrayer.

Fallenwood is dark. It's not your average fantasy. It deals with the themes of death, suicide, identity crisis, and now...betrayal. The old adage goes, "Write what you know". Well, this book has been a little difficult in the making. It strikes a little close to home, but part of me is relying on the catharsis that writing can provide, both to readers and authors.

In searching for an image for this topic, I saw one that reads "Death before Betrayal". I can't agree more. When the events surrounding being betrayed in real life happened, I would rather have died than gone through the things I had to endure.

Ultimately, I suppose something has come out of the betrayal - I AM FEARLESS. Is that a good thing? A bad thing? Hell if I know. But like a sword that has been tempered by fire, here I am.

Book Memes

So there's this new fad amongst my fellow authors, to create memes with quotes from their books. Here's one, from book 3 of my Fallenwood Chronicles, which I'm still working on. More to come!
