[2:43:23 PM] :)
[2:43:27 PM] Re: Flashbacks: Not a fan. If it can be melded in really well, it doesn't stand out too much. But oftentimes it's really noticeable. Especially with
[2:43:28 PM] italics
[2:43:30 PM] this peanut dislikes flashbacks
[2:43:34 PM] and DJ, it's only a few thousand words
[2:43:37 PM] Micen has left the chat
[2:43:38 PM] Micen is logged into the chat

[2:44:15 PM] DJFizzle is logged into the chat
[2:44:24 PM] lazy is one way to put it
[2:44:33 PM] only slightly, though.

[2:44:36 PM] mmk.
[2:44:39 PM] SlySionnach has left the chat
[2:45:14 PM] SlySionnach is logged into the chat
[2:45:29 PM] aha, I can hear
[2:45:45 PM] yay!
[2:46:03 PM] I think that in writing, it's sometimes as if they can't think of another way to show what has happened
[2:46:15 PM] and if there are a lot of flashbacks, it's usually an indication that you need to start your novel elsewhere
[2:46:17 PM] like taht event
[2:46:18 PM] DJFizzle has left the chat
[2:46:19 PM] *that
[2:46:26 PM] DJFizzle is logged into the chat
[2:46:33 PM] yeah. i agree. it's info that the writer thinks is important
[2:46:46 PM] ou I sound important
[2:46:49 PM] but they don't know how to distribute it
[2:47:03 PM] you are important [;
[2:47:21 PM] I mean, a few flashbacks here and there are alright, but don't just pepper them throughout your story
[2:47:26 PM] like italics
[2:47:33 PM] or goddamn ellipses
[2:47:37 PM] ...I hate them...
[2:47:42 PM] ugh ellipses
[2:47:49 PM] they belong in my livejournal, not in my novel
[2:48:01 PM] and even worse: people who use ellipses by putting 4 or 5 dots
[2:48:06 PM] lolol
[2:48:07 PM] New York is on the call

[2:48:51 PM] time to beat it
[2:48:52 PM] ]:
[2:49:10 PM] okay, I caught the end of that
[2:49:18 PM] but I would think that if someone is in a dark room and trying to escape
[2:49:26 PM] no sadly
[2:49:44 PM] bringing in something to explain that would be kinda...deus ex machina
[2:49:50 PM] nod
[2:50:07 PM] like...pulling a gun out of thin air
[2:50:36 PM] (btw NY rocks)
[2:50:57 PM] heh, or a sword that just appeared on a saddle? ;]

[2:51:10 PM] w00t
[2:51:18 PM] re: flashbacks in comics - I think that's a bit different

[3:08:15 PM] this chat room is failure
[3:08:16 PM] always.
[3:08:17 PM] book?
[3:08:20 PM] better than movie
[3:08:22 PM] oh hell yes
[3:08:32 PM] No!
[3:08:35 PM] I disagree
[3:08:36 PM] ooh
[3:08:42 PM] sly is going to beat your face xD
[3:08:43 PM] no
[3:08:46 PM] book is fantastic
[3:08:50 PM] oh god fantastic
[3:08:58 PM] what book?
[3:09:00 PM] Yes
[3:09:01 PM] but still
[3:09:07 PM] I like Stardust
[3:09:08 PM] good movie
[3:09:19 PM] oh yeah, definitely
[3:09:25 PM] everything is a personal preference
[3:09:30 PM] i haven't read / seen either
[3:09:32 PM] and I'm not trying to say you're wrong either =)
[3:09:47 PM] though I must admit, Neverwhere is an awesome mini-series...the book was based on that
[3:09:58 PM] in fact, I have watched it again...and again...and again...
[3:10:01 PM] lol
[3:10:03 PM] ...it's 6?
[3:10:06 PM] that's not late Kuu
[3:10:12 PM] there's plenty of night left!
[3:10:20 PM] shhhhhhhhhhh lol
[3:10:22 PM] books are able to do so much more
[3:10:32 PM] Guest 4 is logged into the chat
[3:10:42 PM] 'cos you're not restricted by what the film industry can / can't do, or isn't allowed.
[3:10:51 PM] exactly
[3:10:56 PM] with the book, you get to imagine things
[3:10:57 PM] ugh.
[3:11:01 PM] it's not a...
[3:11:06 PM] movies for the first ones are disgusting.
[3:11:08 PM] THIS IS LAW kinda thing
[3:11:11 PM] first ones of what?
[3:11:15 PM] harry potter
[3:11:17 PM] oh god
[3:11:18 PM] no
[3:11:20 PM] they don't exist to me
[3:11:23 PM] 5th one was good.
[3:11:25 PM] nope
[3:11:28 PM] book was still way better
[3:11:45 PM] oh yes
[3:11:48 PM] I will agree
[3:11:51 PM] they're entirely different entities to me
[3:11:52 PM] the 5th was pretty good
[3:12:02 PM] don't get me started
[3:12:05 PM] on those movies
[3:12:11 PM] i hate them when i compare them
[3:12:13 PM] I've had many rawr days
[3:12:18 PM] Connie, losing points
[3:12:19 PM] no
[3:12:24 PM] it's completely different
[3:12:25 PM] seriously
[3:12:26 PM] but when i think of them as two different series, it's better
[3:12:34 PM] don't attach them, and both are excellent
[3:12:49 PM] composer?
[3:12:50 PM] lol
[3:12:56 PM] composer?
[3:12:58 PM] john williams
[3:13:01 PM] nah
[3:13:02 PM] what movies/books are you discussing?
[3:13:05 PM] Harry Potter
[3:13:10 PM] and hello Guest 4
[3:13:11 PM] john williams did the first one? maybe two?
[3:13:17 PM] oh
[3:13:28 PM] I know John Williams did some
[3:13:31 PM] I read the first book only... and hello
[3:13:33 PM] I had to play the music
[3:13:35 PM] i think the first two.
[3:13:40 PM] what's your name, Guest 4?
[3:13:45 PM] because calling you Guest 4 is no fum
[3:13:47 PM] ...fun
[3:13:51 PM] fum fum fum
[3:13:58 PM] fu fu fu
[3:14:01 PM] Guest 4 has left the chat
[3:14:07 PM] latin christmas carol is now stuck in my head
[3:14:15 PM] hm
[3:14:26 PM] Would you want your book to be made into a movie?
[3:14:35 PM] totally.
[3:15:00 PM] I'm unsure of whether or not I would want mine
[3:15:08 PM] there'd have to be a lot of special effects
[3:15:21 PM] i only would 'cos more people would see the movie and then be like "ooooh, let me go buy this book"
[3:15:27 PM] Isn't that sad?
[3:15:28 PM] so i would get more money
[3:15:31 PM] it is sad
[3:15:32 PM] "I'll buy this book AFTER I watch the movie"
[3:15:53 PM] the amount of people reading is absolutely deplorable
[3:15:57 PM] it really is
[3:15:58 PM] you know
[3:16:04 PM] I was on the train and every time we got to a station
[3:16:10 PM] I counted the people who were reading
[3:16:17 PM] it was...about 3
[3:16:20 PM] ]:
[3:16:22 PM] the whole trip
[3:16:29 PM] and I live in freaking NY and that's supposed to be all educated, right? right
[3:16:40 PM] i don't read on trips 'cos i get sick ]:
[3:16:48 PM] oh trains are where I get the most reading done
[3:16:55 PM] I can go through a paperback in a trip
[3:16:57 PM] i usually sleep
[3:17:03 PM] I read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest on the way to Brooklyn
[3:17:10 PM] i can't even read very long on a plane
[3:17:12 PM] fantastic, fantastic novel
[3:17:13 PM] which sucks
[3:17:14 PM] aw really?
[3:17:16 PM] that is sad
[3:17:27 PM] yeah
[3:17:32 PM] thought
[3:17:33 PM] -t
[3:17:37 PM] though?
[3:17:43 PM] or hought?
[3:17:49 PM] if my book was being a movie, i would have to write the screenplay
[3:17:52 PM] oh yes
[3:17:56 PM] no question asked
[3:17:58 PM] definitely not letting someone else write my screenplay
[3:18:09 PM] I will learn how to write one JUST for that
[3:18:15 PM] yeah.
[3:18:17 PM] but yeah, no movie for me atm
[3:18:18 PM] maybe for Trip
[3:18:21 PM] I could see that as a movie
[3:18:40 PM] yeah... mine wouldn't really make it past lifetime xD
[3:18:47 PM] hey
[3:18:53 PM] Lifetime movies are good for you dudes ;)
[3:19:09 PM] haha, true
[3:19:57 PM] is someone beating on their mic / speaker?
[3:20:01 PM] Re the question: Yeah. In a way. But the director is paying homage to the author's work
[3:20:06 PM] so it should be similar, same themes and such
[3:20:09 PM] it sounds like it, erin
[3:20:24 PM] it is making my ears weep
[3:20:32 PM] weep
[3:20:43 PM] No! That makes me weep
[3:20:47 PM] weepx2
[3:20:49 PM] yeah
[3:20:56 PM] someone with an A
[3:20:59 PM] You know
[3:21:04 PM] mexican guy
[3:21:14 PM] I would enjoy
[3:21:18 PM] a movie of some of my works
[3:21:26 PM] because when I write, I think in a movie-esque thought
[3:21:28 PM] lol, i'm thinking of the 4th
[3:21:38 PM] Do you?
[3:21:48 PM] Are the scenes like mini movies in your mind?
[3:21:49 PM] i do sometimes
[3:21:59 PM] brb, i need something to suck on ]:
[3:22:02 PM] aw
[3:22:05 PM] I got something for ya ;)
[3:22:08 PM] lolol
[3:22:33 PM] but for my action parts, it's like I see the movie in my mind and I slow it down, analyzing it from all angles
[3:22:35 PM] best way to write it well
[3:23:06 PM] agreed
[3:23:08 PM] and back, obv.
[3:23:11 PM] no way
[3:23:41 PM] ugh. throat is dying.
[3:23:53 PM] don't die
[3:24:00 PM] just my throat.
[3:24:03 PM] i will survive
[3:24:31 PM] Actually, I do want something really close to the written work
[3:24:39 PM] same here
[3:24:43 PM] I get really upset when they add scenes that are kind of stupid or delete scenes that are important
[3:24:46 PM] and if you change the ending
[3:24:47 PM] I get rabid
[3:24:50 PM] it's different
[3:25:14 PM] if you change the ending
[3:25:18 PM] it's just not the same
[3:25:40 PM] if someone dies in one, and lives in the other, the message sent is different
[3:25:49 PM] talk to me about how they split the LotR movies
[3:25:51 PM] gr.
[3:25:52 PM] Guest 5 is logged into the chat
[3:26:19 PM] Holy hell I got in the chat. It's Connie
[3:26:24 PM] hiya connie
[3:26:26 PM] hey!
[3:26:34 PM] you missed my rabidness
[3:26:53 PM] exactly Micen
[3:27:03 PM] when I go to a movie, I want to see the book that I read
[3:27:12 PM] I don't want to see someone taking the name of the novel
[3:27:23 PM] changing the ending, or adding scenes
[3:27:30 PM] and calling it the same name
[3:27:54 PM] bah.
[3:28:16 PM] and personally, I don't know if you can improve on the original work
[3:28:20 PM] I mean, artistically, maybe
[3:28:26 PM] but to change the storyline?
[3:28:28 PM] that's not making it better
[3:28:31 PM] that's altering it
[3:28:34 PM] Sly... Eragon... enough said
[3:28:47 PM] didn't read or see that
[3:28:55 PM] so I don't know if you're agreeing or not ;)
[3:29:00 PM] god.. the movie was horrible
[3:29:06 PM] I have heard that
[3:29:12 PM] i am not in a popular opinion with this, but i love the chronicles of narnia movies.
[3:29:22 PM] i think they were handled fabulously.
[3:29:24 PM] I don't like Chronicles of Narnia =P
[3:29:27 PM] aww
[3:29:31 PM] but I have heard it being liked a lot
[3:29:34 PM] :D
[3:29:39 PM] cashews ftw
[3:29:40 PM] And the reason for that, probably (Stardust)
[3:29:45 PM] is the british vs. american humor
[3:29:59 PM] Yes
[3:30:02 PM] he was talking to the cooler people
[3:30:03 PM] duh
[3:30:05 PM] that one is fab
[3:30:10 PM] 1408 is remarkable too
[3:30:16 PM] I did like 1408
[3:30:18 PM] a lot
[3:30:24 PM] But
[3:30:27 PM] But they added an ending!
[3:30:30 PM] yeah
[3:30:36 PM] they completely fabricated
[3:30:38 PM] and ending
[3:30:41 PM] which was sadder
[3:30:44 PM] yeah.
[3:30:53 PM] but king approved of it, so i was okay. xD
[3:30:55 PM] yeah
[3:30:59 PM] *it
[3:31:03 PM] but yes, Micen, I agree
[3:31:08 PM] it was a good translation
[3:31:14 PM] if they ended it the way they did in the story
[3:31:15 PM] there would be riots
[3:31:18 PM] haha, yeah
[3:31:21 PM] and they'd go "AHAHAHA WE HATE THIS!"
[3:31:36 PM] You know what I didn't mind being left out?
[3:31:39 PM] ?
[3:31:41 PM] The child porn scene in IT
[3:31:43 PM] ugh.
[3:31:45 PM] yes.
[3:31:47 PM] definitely could do without that
[3:31:49 PM] no
[3:31:52 PM] they drive off
[3:32:01 PM] into the mist
[3:32:04 PM] indeed.
[3:32:13 PM] which is great for horror novels
[3:32:17 PM] but not so much for horror movies
[3:32:21 PM] yeah
[3:33:07 PM] I think horror movies sometimes are scarier than horror novels
[3:33:11 PM] because you can do more visually
[3:33:56 PM] yeah. it's easier to stimulate 'cos sometimes we can't imagine that crazy stuff
[3:34:00 PM] i haven't read the stand ]:
[3:34:04 PM] i'm a bad king fan
[3:34:06 PM] that's the issue I'm having with the writing now
[3:34:11 PM] I have The Stand, have not read it
[3:34:21 PM] i should read it
[3:34:24 PM] me too
[3:34:35 PM] 'cos i'm slowly making my way through the dark tower series xD
[3:34:38 PM] but yeah, with horror, it's hard to write scary scenes...it's just text on paper after all
[3:34:45 PM] but you have to really paint the mood and picture
[3:34:48 PM] yeah
[3:34:50 PM] and it can be even creepier
[3:34:51 PM] Erin you seen the tower diagram?
[3:35:04 PM] no, but i haven't finished the series. i'm only on book 2. xD
[3:35:09 PM] ugh, there aren't many
[3:35:17 PM] of what books to read in what order so you get the best effect
[3:35:19 PM] most of the movies are terrible
[3:35:22 PM] someone is typing
[3:35:24 PM] I can hear it
[3:35:26 PM] ooh, no.
[3:35:27 PM] tap tap tap
[3:35:32 PM] alot of his books tie into the tower
[3:35:35 PM] yeah
[3:35:41 PM] i've read a lot of them
[3:35:50 PM] aw, dan brown is an aquired taste
[3:35:58 PM] oh my chat is laggy
[3:36:08 PM] I just heard The Da Vinci Code
[3:36:35 PM] aw
[3:37:18 PM] w00t [:
[3:37:20 PM] is The Dark Tower good?
[3:37:25 PM] I was going to read it but I heard good and bad about it
[3:37:30 PM] it's okay
[3:37:35 PM] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Dark_Tower_(series)#Connections_to_King.27s_other_works there is the link for what books to read in order
[3:37:38 PM] gunslinger is terrible.
[3:37:40 PM] I think we're being kicked out
[3:37:43 PM] but the second book is fab
[3:37:44 PM] its great I love the series
[3:37:52 PM] I definitely shall have to read it eventually
[3:37:56 PM] I've read a lot others
[3:37:59 PM] suckup =P
[3:38:16 PM] I think that's all for us
[3:38:21 PM] indeed
[3:38:39 PM] New York has hung up
[3:38:43 PM] Erin, dont read past the warning... you will understand when you get there.
[3:38:47 PM] lol, mmk
