Wonderwomen, Nostalgia, & Game of Thrones

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve got three words to describe summer in New York this year: Hot, Humid, Hell. And whatever temperature it is in the city, it’s always at least 15 degrees hotter underground on the subway platforms. Am I sweating? Am I melting? Am I secretly the Wicked Witch of the West

Thankfully, my inner fangirl has plenty of distractions this summer:

WONDERWOMAN

Remember this post when I was screaming incoherently over Wonderwoman’s brief appearance in Batman v. Superman? Guys, her movie was SO GOOD. The best friend and I walked out of the movie theater feeling so pumped, we were swearing up and down that we could take on any poor soul who dared to challenge us. That evening, we were five-feet-tall BADASSES, OKAY?  Continue reading “Wonderwomen, Nostalgia, & Game of Thrones”

[Flash Fiction] The Magical Thing

“JONES! Where is my prop?”

“Your prop, sir?”

“The metal thing with the thing in the middle. The magical thing!” The director wrung his sweaty handkerchief, his rolled up screenplay tucked under the arm of his rumpled sweater. “We’re shooting the scene where the hero pulls the sword thing from the middle and unleashes his dormant magical powers. WHERE IS MY MAGIC THING, JONES?” Continue reading “[Flash Fiction] The Magical Thing”

The Muse Takes Over (aka The Sunshine Blogger Award)

For ME?

agnes

From one Sunshine Blogger to another, I thank you kindly, Angela Campbell!

Also, apparently, there are questions.

1) What inspired you to initiate blogging?

Muse: *click clacks on my laptop* Writer human! What is this WordPress that other writer humans are frequenting?

Me: It’s a blogging thing. You create a blog, you share writing, you get feedback. Why?

Muse: No reason. Do you prefer Jade Wong as your pseudonym or Jade M. Wong?

Me: M. We talked about that, didn’t-

Muse: DONE!

Me: What? What’s done? What did you do?

Muse: First post hmm…I think I’ll title it Shine

Me: MUSE, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE. Continue reading “The Muse Takes Over (aka The Sunshine Blogger Award)”

Superheroes, Cuddly Aliens, & Ghost Rider

There were so many reasons to love September, and I’m giving the spotlight to my inner fangirl for this post so she can gush a little about the reasons why she loved September:

BATMAN V. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE AKA WONDERWOMAN

Okay, so this movie actually came out in March but it took my Batman-fanboy of a friend six months of persistent nagging before I finally succumbed to watching it.

*Cue incoherent hyperventilating fangirl screams AHHHH*

[Writer’s Quote Wednesday] Her Miracle

“I’m sorry she never got her miracle.”

“She did get her miracle, Landon, her miracle was you.”

-Nicholas Sparks, A Walk To Remember

Ask anyone about a miracle, and you’ll start a debate. They exist, they don’t exist, they’re the big shockers in life, they’re the little things every day.

Ask her about a miracle, and she knows exactly what she would say: all of the above. Because her miracle was him. Continue reading “[Writer’s Quote Wednesday] Her Miracle”

This or That Book Tag

So technically, I wasn’t tagged for this, but technically I was because Quirky Victorian at (Over) Analysing Literature chose to do an open tag on her post. 

Works for me!

1) Reading on the couch or On the bed?

donnie-darko

2) Male main character or Female main character?

Although my favorite books have had male protagonists, I definitely prefer female main characters. My only issue with the majority of female characters is that too often, they’re portrayed as vapid and cringe-worthy. I apologize in advance for offending any Twilight fans, but I want more Hermione Grangers and less Bella Swans. Continue reading “This or That Book Tag”

Four Fact Survey

Just when I think I’ve got this lateness thing under control, I blink and it’s been a month since Fernanda over at Mystery Date With A Book tagged me with this survey.

Without further procrastination-

4 NAMES PEOPLE CALL ME OTHER THAN MY REAL NAME

1) Jade (as it is my alter-ego pseudonym)
2) Complete Real Life Name (which I can’t reveal because that defeats the purpose of having an alter-ego pseudonym)
3) Miss! (Because that’s easier for kids to say than, well, anything else)
4) AgentCLASSIFIED.

4 MOVIES I’VE WATCHED MORE THAN ONCE

10 things
1) 10 Things I Hate About You

The Secret Life of a Blogger

It’s been a millennium and a half since Bookish Girl in a Boring World first tagged me. And then, Life happened.

Better late than never. *Cracks knuckles* *Sips tea* Let’s get started, shall we?

1) How long have you been a blogger?

Well, let’s see, according to my archives… 

I’ve been blogging on-and-off since 2012 on prior blogs that have now turned to dust in The Cyberspace Graveyard, but Life has a way of kicking my butt and it’s only this year that I’ve finally been blogging regularly. I’d like to think that Life and I are now more reluctant dance partners than bitter enemies.

2) At what point do you think you will stop?

hp never

3) What is the best thing? Continue reading “The Secret Life of a Blogger”

[Flash Fiction] Dominoes!

“Twenty bucks those poles collapse and all anyone sees on camera are the pillars falling like dominoes.”

Grace gave her co-star an aghast look. “There are crew members up there!”

“I’m not saying they’ll collapse NOW.”

Grace thought better than to reply. Still, there had been some unnaturally bad luck surrounding the filming of their movie. The filming had been delayed by odd sounds that interfered with the audio, random props going missing, and even a camera that combusted internally last week. Grace shook the thoughts out of her head as the cameras began to roll.
