Watching the Hallmark movie special Sunday made me think how fun it would be to have your story turned into a film.
This movie, The Makeover, was a light romantic comedy which right away had me thinking of our co-blogger Morgan Mandel's short romantic comedy, The Handyman.
The TV movie, which was a teleplay instead of being based on a book or short story, involved a consultant revamping a working class guy into a polished candidate for the House of Representatives. Unbelievable? Yeah, sometimes, but this was a fun, lighthearted romantic story with comedic and sometimes, okay, goofy moments.
The drawback, of course, was that the plot was simplistic enough that you could follow the movie and "see" the story line. Made me think it could be fun to try writing a story like that, well at least after the other unfinished projects are done.
