Word count as of this morning? 10749. Yeah, I kind of lost momentum, but I predicted that this would occur. But on the plus side, I finally have a hard copy of my other story to edit by hand! Which is another reason for the slow word count. Isn't it amazing how many things you notice once you have your story on actual pieces of paper? Yeah, I have a ways to go with that one. But the husband is going out of town yet again next week, so I'll catch up then. Moving on...
I wanted to write the story I'm working on for NaNo because of a dream I had. But that dream was inspired by a few movies from my past that I absolutely loved. Mostly the scenery. So I'm going to share some images from those movies and talk about them a bit. (Note, I do not own any of these pictures.)
First up syfy's original movie, Alice. I watched this for first time last year and loved it.
The scenery was amazing and I really loved the original take on Wonderland. I am very inspired by nature in all its glory.
And then there's this guy. Hatter!
Another Syfy original I loved was The Tin Man with Zooey Deschanel.
Water plays a big rolec in the story.
I loved the new take on the evil witch and her tower. Very modern and industrial looking.
The last movie I watched when I was in middle school. It has stayed with me after all these years well...because I loved fairytales and magical lands. The Tenth Kingdom is kind of a long one (at almost ten hours), but was so much fun for me to watch when I was younger, and even now. I can't wait to show it to my kids.
The scenery was so beautiful, and it totally transported me to that other world full of magic.
And, of course, you can't forget the evil Queen.
There you have it, a few movies that inspired my new WIP. Love them all. If you haven't watched any of them, give 'em a try. They're pretty fun and make you feel like a kid again.
