Last Friday of March! (Who, me? SICK TO DEATH OF WINTER?)
So we've ended up with only 33 entries in the FAKE LOGLINE contest. YOU GUYS! You must all hate loglines as much as I do!
But seriously. I want to give those of you who might've been hesitating outside the door a chance to enter. So I've extended the submission window to 2 pm EDT today. Just in case.
Because, really. It's a great way to practice a logline that doesn't actually count, AND there are lots of critiques to give away! So if you were teetering on the edge of indecision yesterday, now's your chance.
As for the rest of this Fricassee? Let's share some fun dreams. If you're like most authors (whether we'll admit it or not), you sometimes imagine what your novel would look like on the big screen. You see scenes unfold in your mind, complete with special effects and an awesome soundtrack.
So...who do you see in your lead roles? Who's going to write your soundtrack? What other Amazing Things do you foresee for your box office smash?
I'm not big on dreaming up actors. I see my characters as -- well, themselves. But I must confess that I've always imagined the villain in my MG fantasy as Johnny Depp. (No, stop it. I'm serious.) I don't think he'd want the role, because it's not big enough (he's offscreen for much of the story), but I think he'd be perfect. (Because my villain is quite handsome. And, well. Johnny Depp.)
I'm much more interested in the soundtrack (being a musician and all). My top choices? Hans Zimmer. Thomas Newman. Rachel Portman. Howard Shore.
To name a few.
What are your dreams? Share! It's always okay to dream big.
