If you were to site the "great romances" and see them as a collection on the wall, who would be there and why? Which king and queen would sit atop the thrones of the ideal--as you see it? It's weird the way life, art, and the annual time of romcance,... Continue reading

Nice to see you're finally popping your head to the surface, much like Puxsutawney Phil, Billy. Ya know, according to handler, Phil did not see his shadow this year, so we're due for an early spring! Yeah, finnaly some good news! And it took a groundhog and his handler to give it to us!! From a brief AOL news clip I read some interesting facts surrounding a couple recent Groundhog Day celebrations in the Punxutawney, PA. Like in 2009 the groundhog BIT THE HAND of then-mayor Michael Bloomberg during the annual Febuary 2 celebration. And tragically in 2014, after Charolette the groundhog wiggled out of Mayor Bill de Bario's grasp she fell to the ground and then died a week later of internal injuries. That groundhog does indeed have a personallity. And as your post alludes this classic movie, "Groundhog Day" DOES grow on you with repeated viewings. I find that I like it more and more with each new revisiting. There's a lot to that movie to enjoy. It has serveal different levels and layers to it, and that's a hallmark of most great, iconic movies. Happy Groundhog Day, Billy. Good to have ya back!

Don't have a lot to say this week. But I'm still open for business. Sounds kinda crazy to say that, but sometimes during the lean times you just need to remind others (and yourself) that YES, I'm still a creative writer who is trying to get something going where my... Continue reading

I am a hopeless romantic. WHERE I chose to dilly dally proves that. Don't know if I'll EVER get done with this epic fantasy novel I'm working on. But boy o boy am I ever having fun rewriting it. Sure, it's tendious. Sure, it's been a long time coming. But... Continue reading

Sometimes you just hafta sit back and admire the daring choices some creatives make. Such is the case with Alejandro Gonzalez Inarrirtu's choice to have a movie like "The Revenant" (2015: staring Leonardo DiCapro and Tom Hardy) be your follow-up to "Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance" (2014: staring...

(view from the east, looking at the weathered side of our family garage) 2016. How's it going for you so far? For me I already have a good bead on how 2016 is going to go. And one of the biggest focusus for me in 2016 is going to be... Continue reading

Not really. I didn't see a single movie in the 2015, movie release season that I thought was better or on equal footing than "Birdman (or the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)" which deservedly won the Oscar for 2015 in the best picture catagory. Overall I saw a lot of movies... Continue reading

Sooo glad that 2015 is over and a new year has begun. 2015 was a bad year for me on a creative, productivity standard. My ONLY goal for 2015 was to make progress editing my epic fantasy novel, of which you learn more about by clicking on my sidebar link--if... Continue reading

Well, by now all the Christmas presents should have been open--so did you get what you wanted this year? At one point in my life, when I was a kid ages 8-17 Christmas presents meant EVERYTHING to me. It was my chance to get what I wanted, and I wanted... Continue reading

Is love better here in the states, or better in the U.K.? Well, if you go by the lexicon of rom-com movies released to date, the gool ol' U.S. of A. wins handily. The crux of this post came to me last week when after work I turned on the... Continue reading

I'm really not happy with myself right now. I guess it all be begins there. Most of my frustration/anger is with my slow progress in editing my epic fantasy novel. To me it feels like I'm just not making fast enough progress. Now I do log in the time at... Continue reading

As you may or may not know I am a DIE-HARD, adament, fan of the Seattle Seahawks. LOVED that team since I first started getting into watching NFL football back in the early 80s. BUT the longer I watch football and get a broader perspective on things the more I'm... Continue reading

My "thanks" all have a direction--and that's the Lord! Bang! I love the Lord and when I 'give thanks' the One I'm trying to honor is God. This year ole E.C. Henry has a lot of things to be thankful for. So I'd like to direct these thanks to Jesus,... Continue reading

Went to the movies and saw "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2: staring Jennifer Lawrence, directed by Francis Lawrence", and was disappointed by what I saw. Not EVERTHING was bad, but enough was bad enough that I can't reccomend this movie to anyone. Let's start out with a list of... Continue reading

Hello all! E.C. Henry here, your offical, "inchworm" novelist. Moving with progress as slow as a turtle. In a way I sooo wish I was further along with editing the epic fantasy novel that I've been hard at work on for the last two years. My problem is that I'm... Continue reading

Hello again, gang! E.C. here and since I'm in editing a epic fantasy novel, and have previously stated that one of my weaknesses as a writer IS writing protagonists (which are the leads in stories that authors and screenwriters PURPOUSLY design as the main focal character, a.k.a. "good guy" for... Continue reading

Interest piqued! (Actually I had been reading Scott Myers in depth interview of Tess Morris over that last couple of weeks so interest was piqued earlier). Tess Morris is a mega hottie! She should have been the female star in this movie. Lake Bell has TOO big of a smile. Reminds me of the Chesser Cat from "Alice in Wonderland". Anywho, loves out to Tess Morris. Love the fact that Billy's book help inspire her, I've been saying this for years; Billy's book gives us all a good place to fall back too so we can all "Man up" to a higher version of rom-com.

Key to proving that you have a good story? Ability to hold the kids' attention! Writing a good protagonist is NOT my strong suit as a writer. I think I do some things well, but crafting a good, solid, well-thought-out movie-helming good guy that an audience will revere as iconic,... Continue reading

Some people are just pokey. Nearing two years in on the rewrite of epic fantasy novel I now think I'm one of those kind of people. You know the kind of people I'm talking about. They stroll about, never really accomplishing much. Kind of looky louing about as they occupy... Continue reading

I am not the only artst in our household. If you're wondering where my artistic side comes from, it's definately NOT from my father. He's into karate, spies and espinaoge kind of stuff. YES, when the new James Bond movie comes out I'll hafta go see it with him, because... Continue reading

She claims she meant it "innocently" enough--but I'm not buying it! Then again it was my MOTHER who said it, so perhaps I owe her the benefit of the doubt... No, not really, because I was there, kinda in a daze it was happening, but I know she said what... Continue reading
