  1. Keanu–what if in my mind he looks like the guy my MC hooks up with? What if I LOVED him as John the bastard in Much Ado? What if I started craving wine after seeing him in A Walk in the Clouds? I even liked him as the washed up quarterback substitute in The Replacements. See, as long as he isn’t doing Action and Adventure, I like him. But I can rip apart Kristen Stewart if it makes you feel better.
    As far as Keanu goes, I’m with Card.


    PS But I love you anyway. I hope it’s mutual.

    My MC would go an excellent adventure with Keanu. Especially if there was a bogus journey with the Reaper.

    I’m 31, but feel like I’m still 17. My MC is 17, and I think she’s sounds 17 because I still talk like a 17, minus all the swearing.

    When I was 13, I was in love with Keanu Reeves. IN LOVE. I even had a fan book about him. For shame, for shame. I used to dream I’d get rich and famous and move into the house next to Keanu. I’d go over to his house to borrow sugar and we’d fall in love and get married. I’m not kidding. After Keanu became a “serious” actor, I fell out of love with him. But, like Kelley, I wouldn’t mind walking in the clouds with him.

    My MC is unique because she’s obsessed with eating cake and running. It balances out. She also lies a lot, but not about mundane things, just things that involve saving the world.

    Does seeing that picture of Wilford Brinley make me want to eat oatmeal and take some medicine for my diabetes? Yes.

  3. I’m 34 but forever 17.

    I’m revising a novel, finishing first draft of another novel, and outlining something for nanowrimo. Two of my MC’s think they are older than their age but act younger, the other MC acts older than her age and despises it. By the end they all end up where they should be, I think.

    My husband teaches Tae Kwon Do and is a web designer, so Matrix Keanu Reeves is pretty cool to me.

    I laugh and cry when I write, it can be embarrassing sometimes.

    I’ve seen Matthew Fox wearing lots of leather and metal at the airport (it’s the airport-what are you thinking?) and Dominic Monaghan at Sears…this is back in the Lost days in Hawaii. Too shy to talk to either but my fantasy novel loving dad talked to Dominic for awhile about Lord of the Rings.

    I would take a picture with you, Ann Dee.
