Okay, I'm in desperate need of an interesting movie to watch. What do you suggest? It can be an old movie or a new movie--funny or romantic or scary or...well, anything. I know you have a great taste!

So tell me what movie I should watch by commenting here, or by sending me an email (elizabeth at elizabethwrites dot com) Replies must be in by midnight EST on Friday, April 13th, and then I'll draw four names at random and send each of those four people a book! Though you can only reply once, you can reply no matter where you live (I will ship books overseas), or if you've won something from me in the past.

Books I'll be giving away are: Peaches by Jodi Lynn Anderson, Golden by Jennifer Lynn Barnes, Let's Get Lost by Sarra Manning, and Theodora Twist by Melissa Senate.

And congrats to last week's winners: Amanda, Nikki, Alicia, and Rebecca!

I also have a ton of links to share:

Barnes and Noble plans on being a little more cautious when it comes to stocking YA titles because of space limitations

Sometimes you can write yourself into a corner (make sure to read Kelly McCullogh's comment as well)

Diana Peterfreund discusses writing every day

Fabulous, eye-opening blog entry from Scott Westerfield on meeting deadlines, and who, by the time I post this, is hopefully off relaxing somewhere. My favorite part? The photo of the days marked off--and knowing that Scott Westerfield keeps track of his word count! Now I don't feel so freakish about doing it too.

Sometimes finishing the draft of a novel leaves you feeling pretty finished

Yes, authors *do* worry/think about everything! Including when their book is going on sale.

Have you see Junebug? I really liked that, though it's a little dark in places. And frankly, I rented it to see Ben McKenzie be someone other than Ryan Atwood. heh.

There's a truly brilliant movie version of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night" starring Helena Bonham Carter. :)

An old (dunno exactly how old) movie that I love despite the way it is often ridiculous from my point of view is Empire Records. Saw it on cable one night and have loved it ever since!
