Update On The Chick Flick Blog

Yesterday was a Sunday. My boyfriend went to work and I spent the afternoon watching 2 chick flick movies, telling myself, “I too am working”. I decided on writing the blog here on WordPress – even though none commented on my previous post. WordPress is fun guys! And extremely convenient for the non-tech savvy. Plus, I have a cold so I can’t be bothered.

So, hopefully, by tomorrow, you would be reading a post from the new blog. And to you guys out there who turn a snub nose on the chick flick genre, well there’s something in there for you too. I only ask you to keep an open mind. I am a 29-year-old who enjoys comedy and aspires to be a screenwriter someday. Keep in mind, that before Vince Gilligan created Breaking Bad, he wrote a movie called Wilder Napalm. It’s no chick flick but close enough.

If any of you are a fan of chick flicks and would want to talk about them, stay tuned.

Is Chick Flicks For Everyone?

Today, I jump start an idea. It was not my best, but still! I wanted to be more productive and I used to use this blog as a way for me to do that. But since I haven’t been exactly “living my life” I decided to make another blog. I know… I know… It seems counter productive to start another project when you’re harboring guilty feelings about not continuing on the previous one. But this is good WordPress!

I thought to myself, what are things I’m good at or just things that I like to do that I can write about? I thought about writing about cooking, which I’m getting very good at, if I do say so myself. But thinking of what to cook for dinner already takes the strength out of me. I thought about writing about the books I read, but who are we kidding. That one’s going to be a very slow blog. And then it came to me, maybe I should start writing about movies again. Again, because I used to have this movie blog that’s gone to the dogs (for good reason).

The problem with me writing about movies is I can’t decide on what movie to watch. And having to “review” a movie takes the fun out of seeing it. So, maybe stick a genre, one that doesn’t take itself too seriously? RomComs came to the rescue. I mean, I love rom-coms, and there are hundreds of them out there. Some, I admit, I’ve seen a lot of times (When Harry Met Sally and Miss Congeniality on the top of my head) and some I haven’t even seen (Moonstruck, Roxanne among others), which is a tragedy. Especially for someone like me who aspires to be a screenwriter and DREAMING of becoming the next Tina Fey – I know Tina didn’t write a rom-com (yet! it could happen!) but she wrote Mean Girls, which is a Chick Flick. And that train of thought has lead me to a blog I will call “Nothing But Chick Flicks” – a blog of movies made FOR women but not necessarily made BY women.

Only dilemma is to put it where? I mean, how many of you WordPress inhabitants would be interested in that kind of thing? Let me know.
