Sometimes I turn movies on in my office when I’m writing or editing or doing some of the busy work of the business. The movies I choose are often romantic comedies, or romantic drama. I need that bit of flight of fancy in the background. Sometimes the movies are about things I like and that make me happy…writing, books, cooking, coffee, crafts, history. Sometimes they are kick ass movies that I need for the jolt of extra energy in a way I can’t explain.

I like listening to dialogue, looking at scenery, facial expressions, body movement, hearing the soundtrack, see how the characters interact with one another their surroundings.

Today is one such day where I am revising and I need the distraction and that’s good. Music helps provide the same feeling when I’m writing.

My choices for today are:

You’ve Got Mail

No Reservations

The Wedding Date

Something’s Gotta Give

Stranger Than Fiction

Because I Said So

Music and Lyrics

Wonder Boys

Pride and Prejudice

and if there’s time, Notting Hill

When you just need a movie to watch, what do you choose?
