Well I'm still suffering from some sort of writers block and not done any writing.
The ideas are there but it's as if I'm scared to actually put on laptop and write like I'm not good enough.
Need to snap out of it as I want to send a short story to Cleckheaton Writers Group for the planned anthology which is drawing closer.
Any ideas guys?
Hopefully going to see Orenda publishers and authors tonight at Leeds Waterstones at 18:30 will get me into the writing mood.
Fingers crossed x

Took my daughter to see the new Lego Batman Movie and we both agree it was great.
Although to be honest I wanted to see it the most as I'm a comic and Batman geek.
The film starts with Batman (Will Arnett) telling everyone including his most feared nemesis The Joker (Zach Galifiankis) that he needs nobody not even him which upsets The Joker.
We see Batman on his own in some hilarious situations at home including swimming in his pool as Alfred tells him he needs to be out more.
Meanwhile the Joker gets nearly all Batmans enemies together including Riddler, Bane and Penguin and hatches a plan to get Batman to notice and want him. This involves getting put into the Phantom Zone and rescuing Superman's foes. Plus a few others including King Kong and Sauren.
The film is great for Batman geeks and kids alike with witty one liners and includes nods to all the previous Batman films and the 60s TV show. This includes Bat shark repellent .
By the end Batman with his new friends Batgirl and Robin (who won't leave him alone ) save the day - Spoilers!
Overall the film is funny and has great visuals although near the end there seems to be so much going on in the action sequences it looks a little jumbled. This may be improved when watching in 3D.
Bels Score - 10/10
My Score - 9/10
