Imagination is freedom…on writing, self-publishing and all things fantasy

2017!

Hi Blog!  My name is Jasmine Angell and it’s nice to meet you.  I feel introductions are in order since it’s been far too long since I’ve, well, blogged.  It’s not that I didn’t have anything to report in 2016 because I did.  2016 was an awesome year and I set some challenging goals for myself which I can’t wait to tell you about.  I took a year off from writing novels to work on short stories and it seems I took a year off from posting in my blog as well.  After three years of publishing novels, my inner hermit decided it was time to retreat and recharge.  The good news is that I’m back and I’m excited to share with you all my adventures in 2016 as well as tell you about what I’m looking forward to in 2017.

Since this is my first post after my extended absence, I’m going to take baby steps and keep this post short.  But I do want to geek out for one second and tell you how excited I am for one particular movie premiering this summer.  Can you guess??

That’s the one!  Wonder Woman!  I know I’m not alone on this because I’ve read tons of blogs on how the world has been waiting…and waiting…and waiting for Wonder Woman to hit the big screen.  We’ve waited through I don’t know how many Batman films and Spider-Man remakes.   We’ve been more than patient through the last fifteen years of super hero movies featuring popular and obscure male heroes.  The rare female super hero movies have been less than stellar (Elektra comes to mind) and through it all, Wonder Woman fans have been teased by rumors of failed screenplays and rejected TV pilots.  We want Wonder Woman on the big screen!!

Since I’m a lifelong Trekkie, I’m thrilled that Chris Pine has left the bridge of the Enterprise long enough to bring Steve Trevor to life opposite Gal Gadot (and then he must return to stardate 2263 ASAP).  Wonder Woman’s onscreen debut in Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was my favorite thing about the movie but I want more!!  Come June 2017, I’ll be at the movie theater with all the other fans taking a cinematic journey to Themyscira to see where it all began for Diana Prince!

  1. Yay! Welcome back! I’m looking forward to hearing how 2016 went for you and your plans for 2017. And Wonder Woman! Cool! I’m kind of “over” comic book movies in general, but Wonder Woman does seem way overdue.

  2. Hi Sara! It’s great to hear from you and thanks for the welcome back. I’ve emerged from my hermit cave at last, lol. 🙂
