I have not even started…
Well this is going spiffingly (good word, spiffingly)
I think I want to base it loosely on burlesque/vaudeville and set it in a different time period than the present. Either that or I will set it now and use older burlesque influences and have it like Moulin Rouge!
Oh my gawsh don’t you just love Baz Luhrmann!!!!
It’s just the way he mashes the old and new together… I just love it!!!
So I’m thinking maybe 1920’s but IDK!!!
I like the idea of having a strong female lead who starts off being quite nerdy until she joins a burlesque club and then becomes this amazingly strong independent person…
A little like the transformation Roxie Hart undergoes in Chicago…
I think I’m going to end up just mashing up Chicago, Great Gatsby, Moulin Rouge and Burlesque into one book…
I’ll let you know how that goes…
Ha oh well!
I’ve started carrying around my notebook and I have written down some of my influences and I’ve just printed off a load of pictures that I like and I want them to influence my writing.
I can’t wait to design the cover… That’s all I want to do really… Design the front cover! I already have loads of ideas for that but none for the actual writing!
Anyway better go and do what all the other teenagers are probably doing right now… My homework that I was meant to do at the start of the half term!
New wordpress layout is weird!
Went trick or treating as a doll and got absolutely soaked as it decided to pour down!
I have a couple ideas for NaNoWriMo but I still don’t think that they are good enough to write a whole freaking book about!!!
Had an all day pantomime rehearsal yessterday and was knackered because yesterday I woke up at 4am and didn’t go back to sleep until 5:30 am and then woke up at 7am and then finally fell asleep again for 2 hours and then had to get up. Needless to say I went to Costa halfway through the rehearsal because there was no way I was going to be able to keep going without caffeine!
I must say that despite the director (who has a really cool moustache) telling us all to get a good nights sleep I am writing this at 1am.
I have another all day rehearsal tomorrow… Bollocks… More caffeine me thinks!
I’ve decided I’m going to learn bass guitar… Just need to convince my parents to buy me one!
Also I need a smaller acoustic guitar because the one I have at the moment is HUGE and i can’t change chords quick enough because the fret board is so wide.
I’m gonna put a pick of my halloween costume up in the next post.
I watched the movie Burlesque a couple hours ago. It was awesome! Cher looked amazingly glamorous as always and Christina looked… skinny!
I know the movie is a few years old but I forgot I wanted to see it and only remebered a few days ago.
Is it wrong that I now want to be a burlesque dancer!?
It’s the feathers
And oh my gosh can we all just take a moment to admire how totally gorgeous Cher is!?
