#InkRipples is a monthly meme created by Kai Strand, Mary Waibel, and Katie L. Carroll. They post the first Monday of every month with a new topic. They're all authors, but you don't have to be to participate.
The idea of #InkRipples is to toss a word, idea, image, whatever into the inkwell and see what kind of ripples it makes. We provide the topics and will be blogging about them on the first Monday of the month. You can spread your own ripples by blogging about the topic any day of the month that fits your schedule, just be sure to include links back to Katie, Kai, and Mary.
Or you can simply share your thoughts on social media using the hashtag #InkRipples. You might simply comment on one of our posts to play along. Tag us and we're always happy to share your posts and thoughts to keep those ripples going and intersecting.
Feel free to use any of the meme's images (created by the wonderful Mary Waibel.)
Topics for 2016 are:
August: Guilty Pleasures
September: Banned Books
This month the subject is movies. I'm not a really big movie fan. I think too many other things keep me busy. Occasionally I go to the theatre, usually when family or a friend asks me to. The latest movie I've seen was Star Wars. I enjoyed it. Hope to see the next one.
When I was a kid my friends and I sometimes went to the neighborhood theatre. My favorite picture shows (yes, that's what we called them back in the day) were westerns: John Wayne, Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. I loved the horses. I also enjoyed a good Tarzan movie. Dracula I wasn't so crazy about.
Then in my teen years it was all about musicals and romance. Yeah, silly teen girls. Doris Day and Rock Hudson were the perfect couple. I wanted to sing and dance like Doris did. She was so pretty. Two bad I had two left feet and sounded like a frog croaking.
Today, I'm not a fan of all the violent shows. Truthfully, I don't even know what's showing now. My favorite movie of all time is Gone With The Wind. Scarlet O'Hara was so selfish and exciting at the same time. Now, Clark Gable, Rhett Butler, what can I say? I like the historical part of Gone With The Wind. A close second is Rebel Without A Cause. James Dean and Natalie Wood. Need I say more?
So I have little to say about movies.
How about you? Are you a big movie fan?
