Book report, week 7: absence and Annie

It’s been another disastrous writing week, unfortunately. I’m hoping that I will be able to return to full concentration soon, but it just isn’t possible at the moment. Whenever an idea pops into my head, I take notes, and my noticeboard is full of Post-Its for future use.

Film research-wise, I watched Annie Get Your Gun this week. I must have seen this as a child, but it’s one of the few classic musicals I have no recollection of. Betty Hutton is a revelation as Annie Oakley, I had no idea she was such a wonderful physical comedian. This number below is just glorious:

I also didn’t know that this is where the song There’s No Business Like Show Business originated from. Quite an education!

Missed week 6? You can read it here. Or start from week 1 here

  1. I am beginning to reconsider what people mean when they say, “Ah, like Annie get your gun!” when I introduce my name! LOL 😀
    The important thing is to trust that all the post-its will blossom when the time is right (although we always wish the time was now!). Would love to know about your post-it collecting method!
    Keep going, Anne! xx

    1. I think I may have blanked the film out because I was called that so much as well, Annie.

      There’s no method to my Post-It collecting, other than shoving them randomly on the board as and when I think of ideas. But when I get the room to concentrate again, I’m hoping they’ll hold the key to the elusive ending. Ever the optimist!

  2. Hi Anne,
    I’m sorry to hear circumstances are still keeping you from your writing. Will be great when you can get back to your post-it notes but in the meantime you’re gathering writing fuel, as you say.
    Take care,
    Fiona
