Where does the time go?
Happy Halloween to all my myth-believing, ghost-busting, vampire-loving, witchy friends. We don't really celebrate it downunder, thank god! It's hot today, finally, after all the winter weather everyone thought would hang around for the next century, we have a hot day. Can you imagine all the face paint that would run, all the ghosties and ghoulies with sweat patches on their white sheets? The only advantage would be dressing up in one of those little witch outfits to show off my new boobs =)
But enough about that, I know my father in law gets a little uncomfortable talking about the new additions.
I've already given up on the idea of a running story for my blog. I found with all the judging, writing, critting and submitting, I just don't have the time for anything else. You should see my house. It looks like a bomb hit it!
Okay, so it's competition time in my life. A heap of Aussie comps are closing in November and a few others around the world have closed in the last few days so I've been polishing and editing and polishing again. I haven't heard back from the two agents who have my historical but I'm hoping that will be this month as well. It's all happening!
It's also wedding time. Three weeks ago was my big brother's, last weekend was Bec and Adam's and tomorrow is Casey and Bo's. It got me thinking not so much about writing or reading weddings but about your favourite television or movie wedding.
I like Millie and Adam's wedding in Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Adam Ponterby went to town looking for a wife and Millie just happened to be the gal for him. The got hitched in the front parlour of the vicar's house with the man tut-tutting over their three second courtship and the three foot height difference between bride and groom making me want to giggle. Maybe you liked Shrek and Fiona's I do after Fiona is changed into a hideous, ugly ogre, right after Dragon burps from eating the crazy power-driven Lord Farquad. Or maybe your's is a series wedding. Brook and Ridge? Ridge and Taylor? Dominic and Bridget? Dominic and Brook? God, I could go on all day with these handful of names.
So tell me what your favourite wedding is and why and the best one (the one I really, really like) will win a prize! Just leave it in the comments section along with your email address. I'll decide on a winner by next Saturday when I post again.
(If your comment doesn't show up, don't stress, Weebly are having some glitches but all comments go to my email and leaving the comment on facebook doesn't count =) You have to visit here)
From next week I'm hoping to start up some Author interviews with friends of mine so stay tuned for the first one...
Now I have to go and paint my toenails a beautiful sparkly pewter colour to go with my dress for tomorrow. Have a great weekend and week, and good luck with the Trick or Treating!!

Hey, Bronwyn, great post! My favorite wedding on celluloid, hands down, is the one from the Sound of Music. That was actually the first movie I ever saw in a cinema as a wee little girl. I still think it's not a bad one to start with. I think the wedding in the cathedral with the kids and the nuns and the choir singing, "How do you solve a problem like Maria?" is still breathtakingly romantic! Captain von Trapp? Yum!
Anna, I bought The Sound of Music this morning from Kmart! I love the movie and all the singing and the general happiness (in the happy parts). I can't really remember the wedding but I'll go take a look. I'm just waiting for the man to fall asleep otherwise I'll get complaints about torture...

Yeah, I like all the happy stuff too. Love the kids dancing through the gardens singing Do Re Mi. Hope you managed to watch the movie without too many complaints from the natives!

I can see that you are an expert at your field! I am launching a website soon, and your information will be very useful for me.. Thanks for all your help and wishing you all the success in your business.

I'm a published author but I'm still mostly stumbling about in the dark looking for the right paths so this blog is about that, though sometimes something will give the me the shits and I'll have a bit of a rant. I'll try not to be offensive but occasionally my mouth opens without asking my brain's permission so I'll apologise in advance.
