Stories to write, Movies to watch & Books to read!

I have been taking too long with some of my projects and that ends now. Not just books are a new passion for me, but movies and TV shows too. I always liked movies but had the habit of watching the same 12 to 15 movies over and over again every year( some of them are Lord of the Rings trilogy ,Blade Runner, The Thing, Alien, South Park, Jaws,Ghostbuster..)  I’ll still watch some of those, they are my absolute favorite movies of all time, but I do want to open my mind to new movies and even new genres. The same goes for many TV shows, I have watched things like X-Files, South Park, The Office, Dr Who, Lost and some others too many times, time to try new ones.

The same thing when it comes to books, I have many novels at my house that I bought but did not get to read them yet, around 40 of them. I have read books like The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho or LOTR  and a couple of others so many times, but I can’t find the time to grab a brand new book and dive into a new story, I have no clue why it has been so hard for me to do that but it stops this weekend.

So my project is to write 1000 words a day, watch at least 5 movies a week and find a couple of TV shows that I have never seen before and watch it, every week. I’ll pick a show, watch the first 3 episodes and see if I like it.

When it comes to books/short stories, I have a goal that I set to read at least 15 for the year, We are already in the middle of October and I’ll push myself to read at least 6 novels until January 1, I’m already reading 4 novels that I stopped in the middle of it, so it won’t be as hard as it looks to read a full 6 novels.

Some TV shows, movies and books on my list:

Tempest Outpost, Brad Harmer-Barnes

Swamp Monster Massacre, Hunter Shea

Ghost Story, Peter Straub

The Montauk Monster, Hunter Shea

Planet Leviathan, D.J Goodman

Some TV shows:Hemlock Grove, Sherlock, Luther, Torchwood, Iron Fist…

Movies : Sharknado, Cube, Europa Report, Son of Frankstein, Cloud Atlas, The Road and many others.
