How many rejections should you receive before you stop trying?
Then I read the book. That's when I understood why she was there. But still I was envious that this woman would write so well from the beginning, where I have had to struggle to learn. She must be a natural! A fluke!
Here is yet another book to movie that makes me shiver with anticipation, and pray that Hollywood doesn't screw it up, at the same time.
The Help by Kathryn Stockett comes out on the big screen on August 10. Unlike other books of genres like science fiction (The Minority Report), fantasy (The Lord of the Rings), or dystopian (The Hunger Games), I am hoping that The Help can easily make the move onto the big screen while staying true to the story line.
Here's our list of characters:
The persona is there. I haven't seen much of Emma Stone's work, but I think that is why it will be easy to buy into her playing this character.
- Which one of your characters would you most want to be?
- If you could go back and change anything about your story, what would it be?
- Which one of your characters would you want to have a... um...physical relationship with?
- Which one of your characters would you want to have an emotional relationship with?
- What is your "drug" of choice while writing? Or, what "drug" were you coming off of when writing this book?
- What is your writing to Twitter-goofing-off ratio? (in hours, minutes...)
- Are there any parts of your childhood secretly written into your story? Which ones?
- What is the biggest unknown, or most embarrassing fact about this book?
- Which one of your family members suffers the most while you write?
- Have you ever based a character off someone in real life that you hope they never find out about?
- What is the one question you've always wanted to be asked, but no one ever has? What is the answer to that question?
- What was your favorite day dream/fantasy that ended up being written in your story?
After reading The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, it easily became one of my all time favorite books. So when the movie was announced I was thrilled. Even though, like most people, I always find the book to be much better then it's big screen counterparts, I still enjoy going to see what Hollywood envisions when they read. Sometimes I buy it (Harry Potter) and sometimes I don't (The Scarlett Letter. Ya know, the Demi Moore one. *puke*).
