I just heard that The Devil Wears Prada, that fantastic 2006 produced comedy-drama filled that was based on the novel that Lauren Weisberger wrote in 2003, is to be turned into a musical by non other than Elton John.
It the film version, aspiring journalist (Anne Hatheway) gets a job assisting the draconian editor (Meryl Streep) of a fashion magazine called Runway. It’s loosely based on an IRL editor who enjoys wearing Prada.
Letters to Caroline:
I fell in love with the book cover for the second book in the series, Listen To Your Heart by Margaret Lake.
Margaret Lake is the author of historical, contemporary, and fantasy romance, plus illustrated children's books, and graphic novels.
I enjoyed this novel. Readers wanting a romance with a good storyline are sure to enjoy it too.
As this romance story is set in 1918, it also falls into the historical fiction category.
I didn’t know what to expect as I drove my car to the restaurant. I’d been talking to Deacon online for over a year now, but this was the first time either one of us had attempted to meet up. Why did we wait so long? Was it my doing? His? I wasn’t sure. But, when he invited me out to eat, he asked me to recommend a good restaurant, and my flatmate insisted I wear her best dress.
"Be the lady in red; dress the impress," she said.
"I'm not certain this is right for a first date." I twisted to look over my shoulder at the deep plunging back.
"There's nothing modest about a plunging back in a cocktail dress," Dianne said.
"As long as he doesn't take it as an invite that I'm ready to take the plunge." My heart raced, for I was ready, gosh, I'd known him for a year, we talked every day. We'd just never taken that step to meet. person-to-person.
My husband lived and worked in Nauru. I special nursed the wife of the head chief of Nauru, and spent time with the family and friends. I feel as if I understand enough about Nauruan culture to write of it, and I’ve studies the history and politics of the country. I have Reg beside me, to ensure my story is accurate to the time he lived there.
Yes. I have done it. You do not write a novel in a year for NaNoWriMo, you write a 50k first draft of a novel.
Yes, I hope to do it again this year. I may have to scrub that goal. I know in advance that it will be a challenge this year. My reason for doing it this time will be to motivate myself to write a novel despite being ill, and to keep my mind occupied and leave no room to think about being ill. If it proves too much, I won't feel a failure if I quit, I gave into a try, and I sure have stories that I'd still love the site.
Have you ever noticed that if you post about a health issue on an online forum designed for that purpose, some sales person will come rushing at you selling magic expensive liquids or solids to be swallowed, all produced without adequate quality control and espousing unproven benefits?
My response is to thank them. See a typical response below.
I am in an animalistic mood. I subscribe to a leading fashion designer's catalogue and enjoy looking, but rarely buy the garments offered. I place practicality over fashion and tend to buy only those items I need. Well, I needed lounge around at home pull on casual pants. So, I was delighted when the latest animal print, easy care pants had a huge price drop. Can you see me prancing around the studio in tiger print pants, playing on my fancy g?
I'm currently running the website, social media management program and email service for Historical Fiction Promotions, as begin here in Writer's Cafe.
While there is no fee, the promotion participation isn't free; it is by authors contributing their time and experience to cross-promote via their social media and mailing list.
There is an optional donation. The donations assist towards the costs of what I am paying for to run this.
Some people think that literature, painting, and music aren’t closely related.
I disagree. In fact, aside from the obvious, that they are all creative pursuits, they all share a common problem when it comes to earning a living at one’s art. Many want to view or hear your art form, only some will pay for that privilege, and sadly many will pirate and plagiarize your creative work.
Tell me honesty, would you prefer to see my seventy year old body in a bikini or a Burkini?
Actually I wear neither.
But, my choice of swimming costume should be my own, as should be the right of the person bathing beside me to wear a burkina or a bikini.
As I go swimming at Shepparton, in Victoria Australia, where we have a wonderful multi-cultural society, I do swim with women who are comfortable in, and look lovely wearing a range of costumes, from Burkini to Bikini.
I left my bikini wearing days behind forty-five years ago, after I began having children I was more comfortable wearing a one piece costume.
