After not being able to write for two weeks because of bronchitis, I had to speed-write for a week in order to complete my submissions for my two critique groups, both of which met this week. I plan on spending this weekend relaxing, although my wife may have other plans in mind. 

We saw Pacific Rim: Uprising last weekend and were moderately entertained.  My my, how computer graphics have evolved over time. Mass destruction never looked so good.  The story itself was rather contrived and full of plot holes, but I've come to expect that in these kinds of movies.  Just load up on the popcorn and soda and watch the explosions, thank you very much.

Enjoy the writing links!

7 Ways to Master “Show, Don’t Tell” During Exposition


  1. Mass destruction never looked so good - LOL!

  2. Guess I have to see that mass destruction for myself. I love computer graphics. If I could start another career, I think I'd be one of those who creates them. Oh well, next time around. :-)

  3. Hi Chemist Ken, You have links to so me articles I'm going to read on the subject "Show & Tell. Glad you are feeling better. Thank you for reading and commenting on my Guest Post (Alex's site).

  4. My opinion was the same. It was fun to watch, though. And the theater had Cheetos popcorn! Yum. Glad you're feeling better.

  5. CGI is great. Like you said it never looked so good. :-)
