Almost all of us have imagined who would play the characters in our WIPs if they were ever made into a movie. On February 28th, we want you to “cast” your WIP, and post photos of the actors/actresses you would choose to play the characters in your latest manuscript. You don’t have to cast everyone if you don’t want to, just show us your MCs and tell us a little about them.
Also, we’d like you to tell us which songs you’d have on your WIP Movie soundtrack! This can be one song that fits the main theme of the story, or several songs that make you think of your story.
Right now, I am writing a book about my experiences with cancer. It's in its very early stages (rough draft). It covers three surgeries, several dozen (estimated) doctor visits, etc. Here are my picks for actors/actresses and songs!
- "Firework" Katy Perry
- "Keep Holding On" Avril Lavine
- "Stronger" Kelly Clarkson
- " Breakaway" Kelly Clarkson
Me: Played as self
Mom: Cameron Diaz
Dad: Jason Patric
Dr. #1: PSY ( both of these people are Asian)
Dr. #2: Gene Wilder
Nurse: Amy Poehler

Question of the Week: What was the last book that made you cry?
I am not a big crier when it comes to books, but I just finished a novel entitled Heartbeat, which is about a girl who's mom is pregnant and brain dead, but the doctors keep her alive because the dad wants the baby. So depressing, but the good news is that the baby survives!

If you lived in a society where arranged marriages were a la mode, whom would you beg your parents to set you up with? Why?
That's easy- Taylor Ambrose from My Sister's Keeper! (If you can't tell already, I am obsessed with this book) He's got such a nice personality!!!

Question of the Week: If you could read a book for the “first time” again, which book would it be? Why?
That is a very tough question. There are about a gazillion answers that I could give you right now. If I had to choose just ONE, it'd be My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult. I would also choose Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom.
I wanted to take a second and promote my new blog, which is entitled Cancer Sucks. I am having major reconstructive surgery this summer and wanted to promote it here to get followers. You'll have to visit my blog to read the whole story! PLEASE follow. Link to blog:secretlifeofmorgankatz.blogspot.com

I wanted to share a good story on this snowy, dreary morning (at least in Chicago, that is!). I just finished my last final English paper ever of high school. We were assigned an analytical paper about our writing over the course of the semester. Here's the catch- it had to be creative, and it had to have an overarching theme. I was overwhelmed at first, but then I met with my teacher, and he suggested that I write about the power of collaboration in writing. I got an A on the paper, and was shocked beyond belief.
