Despite hitting a little slump over the past week, March was a good writing month. My second-best ever, in fact. Not only did I reach my page-count goal this time, I went 56 pages over it, which leaves my deficit for the year at 24 pages. I'd like to think that I can take care of that next month, but we'll see. There are some non-writing things coming up that are going to take some time.
This are the books I read in March:
THE AVENGER: MURDER ON WHEELS, Kenneth Robeson (Paul Ernst)
THE SEX LADDER, Anthony Gordon (Robert Leslie Bellem)
SEE HOW THEY RUN, James Patterson
THE HOMESTEADER, Lewis B. Patten
A SOUL IN A BOTTLE, Tim Powers
SECRET AGENT X: AMBASSADOR OF DOOM, Brant House (Paul Chadwick)
CRY OF THE WOLF, Karen Whiddon
DEVIL IN A BLUE DRESS, Walter Mosley
SAGE TOWER, Dean Owen (Dudley Dean McGaughey)
MORE TWISTED, Jeffery Deaver
I SHOULDN'T EVEN BE DOING THIS!, Bob Newhart
And the movies I watched in March:
THE 13TH WARRIOR
THE WHITE GORILLA
YOU, ME, AND DUPREE
No separate post for FLICKA, since we just watched it tonight, but I liked it. It's a horse movie. Heartwarming story, spectacular scenery, and Maria Bello. That's enough for me to watch it. I never read the original Mary O'Hara novel MY FRIEND FLICKA. Wasn't big on horse books when I was a kid, although I read THE BLACK STALLION and THE ISLAND STALLION by Walter Farley.
March was an improvement all around. I wrote more, read more, watched more movies. Thank goodness for months with 31 days.
