WiP: The Movie Blogfest

It's WiP: The Movie Blogfest time! Thank you to Kyra and Rachel for hosting this blogfest. Here's what I was asked to do:

Post a photo of the actors or actresses you would like to play the characters in your WiP if it were to be made into a movie. It can be just one character, or the entire cast!

Secondly, we want you to soundtrack your movie! Head over to YouTube, and post a song that best describes one of your characters, or your story as a whole. Again, you can pick one song, or several, it's entirely up to you!


I'm casting the characters of my current WiP. As most of you know, I just started a massive rewrite, but so far my MC's still look the same. : )

Nathaniel (if only Zac Efron had green eyes!)
Juvy enthusiast, guitar player, and fiercely independent.

And Rebecca (Emma Stone)
A bit spoiled, kindhearted, and a hopeless romantic.

And the #1 song on my WiP soundtrack is Starlight by Muse

  39. Thanks, everyone!

    I feel like a total fake right now. I think I suck at choosing actors to portray my characters. These are the closet I could find.

    As for my story, I'm sorry I'm minus a blurb. My rewrite is so intensive, I didn't know where to begin. I hope to change that soon.

    Thanks again! : )

    ReplyDelete
  40. Ooh! Green eyes on Zac would be fab! And I ADORE Emma Stone. Excellent post!
