You may be getting a lot more stories from me, Marianne, and Mariah. Since we've started the Short Story Contest we don't have regular short story submissions...lol. You supposed everyone wants to win the prize instead? :-)
Okay... on to BTT:
Suggested by Superfastreader:
Books and films both tell stories, but what we want from a book can be different from what we want from a movie. Is this true for you? If so, what’s the difference between a book and a movie?
For me... I don't think I really want anything different from a book and a movie. I want a good story from both. Something that will hold my interest. Maybe make me think, but mostly will just entertain me. And just like I enjoy many genres of books, I like different types of movies, depending on the mood I'm in. Sometimes I can pick up an old favorite that fits like the proverbial pair of shoes (in the movies, this would mostly be musicals or a well-loved older book). Other times I want a little bit of suspense (Dean Koontz is good for that).
This is an interesting question and I'm looking forward to reading the responses.
