I've reached 100 followers! Who'd have thunk it? Anyway, this calls for a giveaway, right? Well... sheesh, I've got nothing. Seriously. I don't get ARC's, I don't know any agents... I wish I could hold a super-awesome contest but who would judge, what would be the prize?
Anyway, this is what I came up with. A read-through of your first 25 pages. I'll admit, and this isn't really going to make people want to enter, but I'm not the best beta out there. I don't do line edits really and I don't know all the "rules" (or if I do, I tend to break them). But if you're looking for fresh eyes, someone to give you their general thoughts or input, I'm your girl. Just comment on this post and I'll pick a random winner. It can be from a complete MS or an unfinished WIP- I don't care as long as there is a beginning in place (I couldn't enter my own contest because I haven't written the beginning of my WIP yet, I just jumped right in). So enter away and I look forward to reading someone's work.
On to crush of the week...
I saw the movie Crazy Stupid Love on Tuesday night starring Steve Carell, Julianne Moore, Emma Stone (who I love- she's awesome) and this guy, my crush of the week:
I sort of have a soft spot for Ryan Gosling because I've met him before. His mom and I went to the same church when I lived in Burlington, Ontario and he visited a couple of times. This was back when he had just finished filming Remember The Titans so he wasn't a huge actor yet. I spoke to him a couple of times and he seemed like a very nice, down-to-earth guy. Now he's a very well-known actor and I'm happy for his success.
Anyway, in Crazy Stupid Love, he's funny, and holy cow hot. The movie was really good, although I'm not gonna lie, there were a couple of parts I didn't like. Steve Carell was of course hilarious. He had the whole theater laughing out loud. But since this isn't about him, I wanted to share this short clip of Ryan/Emma moments. My favorite is right at the beginning- "Seriously? It's like you're photo-shopped!"
