I miss blogging, but I feel like I don’t have a lot to say these days. My dissertation is consuming most of my writing time, though I did complete a major revision of Brave in Heart — and started querying publishers! — and am currently revising The Easy Part.
So, I’m going to start a new feature: A Fine Romance Friday, featuring clips from my favorite romantic movies. First up, West Side Story! Specifically, the moment were Tony and Maria meet at the dance at the gym.
I have seen this movie 500 times. You know, give or take. I’ll admit that I don’t always cry, but the dancing, the music, the noise that Chita Rivera makes in the back of her throat during the scene at Doc’s: they rip me apart and then sew me back together. Also, Tony and Maria’s meeting scene makes a cameo appearance in The Easy Part.
