A New Outlet for My Motormouth!

It's either feast or famine on this blog.

One week, I write three posts, and the next week, nothing. But this time, there's a good reason for it: I have a new writing gig! I am now--drum roll, please!--a contributor for Moviepilot, a site devoted to the coverage and discussion of movies and TV.

I've enjoyed the site for some time now as a subscriber, but while attempting to post a comment a couple of weeks ago, I got a message suggesting I apply for a contributor spot and expand my comments into an article. I did, and was accepted! Yay!

The email I received urged me to "be opinionated." Me? That's like giving me a license to kill! This is going to be sooooooo much fun! I'm a real movie/TV junkie. (A confession here: if screenwriters were not the low guys on the Hollywood totem pole, with virtually NO control over their work once delivered, I'd be writing screenplays instead of books.)

Anyway, I'm almost finished with my first two articles for Moviepilot--one on the dysfunctional princes of Asgard, Thor and Loki, and the other on the new TV series Agents of SHIELD. And of course, there's going to be something on those delightful mischief makers, the Minions!

I'll be posting links here--I hope you'll check them out (and comment, of course!)

In the meantime, check out William's review of The Princess Bride at Speak of the Devil...his latest and greatest photos at Ottawa Daily Photo...and our joint blog, Basking in the Afterglow!

And a Happy Birthday (one day late) to a very special friend: Hope you got lots of chicken strips on your big day, Hamish!


  1. That's going to keep you very busy! Good for you!

    And there's nothing wrong with being opinionated!

    1. It will be a good outlet for my mean streak. Maybe I'll leave everybody else alone.

  2. Congratulations Norma! One way to stay out of trouble....

  3. Are you kidding me I Your motormouth is just fine. In fact pretty perfect if you ask me. As William said nothing wrong with being opinionated. Sometime we get so caught up with being so PC that we forget common sense.
    I am so excited about this ! I will be checking the site out.
    Daughters partner is an Classic Hollywood movie blogger. She is so knowledgeable on old movies.
    Just wait till I blog about ILLEGAL immigration. Talk about being on the wrong side of the PC. I have lived in California and Arizona and see first hand the problems.

    thehamish woofs back at you. He will be having a party today when Daughters gud dugs come over !

    cheers, parsnip

  4. How exciting! I know you'll love this gig!

  5. Yay!! Congratulations!! Take care

  6. Congratulations and so exciting, Norma! I am looking forward to many more opinions! (And yes, I'm a movie buff so doubly-excited for you:)

  7. Awesome, Norma! What a fun venture! I always thought it'd be fun being a movie critic! Congrats to you!

  8. Oh well done Norma, the perfect gig for you.. I'll be interested to read your review on Agents of Shield, Aimee loooves it and others I know think its a load of old ....! Maybe it's one of those appealing to a certain age type things... Looking forward to hearing your reviews.

  9. Wishing you a happy and fun weekend! Take care
