So, NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) went well. I added over 10,000 words to the 11,611 I started with on my cozy mystery, so I’m happy. Lots more to write, then edit, so still slogging merrily away 😊
But it’s also the holidays! We don’t do a lot of decorating but we do have a lot of favorite holiday movies we watch.
Here are a couple of movies I watch during the holidays that you might not necessarily associate with Christmas.
I’m starting with the movie I’m most conflicted about. I shouldn’t like You’ve Got Mail. It’s about a big box book store moving into a New York City neighborhood that wants to close all the competition, including The Little Shop Around the Corner. Tom Hanks plays Joe Fox, the charming figurehead of the big bad bookstore, Fox Books and Meg Ryan plays Kathleen Kelly, who is desperately trying to keep alive her late mother’s childrens bookstore. Hanks and Ryan are at their peak, playing people who are sworn enemies in real life, not realizing that they’re falling in love via anonymous email (the sound of AOL connecting to the internet! LOL!). Part of the story takes place during December, so there are Christmas trees and gift buying, which makes this a holiday movie to me.
