I’ve been writing about Addicted to Love for the last six months. Trouble is, it bores 99% of my readers. The good thing? 1% love it. Never forget the 1%.Blogging is like making a film; you have an idea and then try to shape it into something that people will like. The awful truth is, when you try to please everyone, you don’t truly grab anyone. But I believe if you do what you really want to do, then something wonderful will happen.
I do often wonder though why I do this to myself? There was a time when I’d just read, watch a film, listen to some music and read a lot of books. Now I’m addicted to this blogging malarkey and have spent most of this year forsaking all others for Meg Ryan’s Maggie and Pfeiffer’s Melanie Parker.
Speaking strictly in terms of character Maggie seems more of a cartoon, whereas Melanie Parker strikes me as more of a real person. Maggie however, is a brilliant, head-spinning creation, a fractured princess with endless shards of Machiavellian madness to share. In other words, a role beautifully suited to Meg Ryan’s sparkling talent.I do love One Fine Day (more, perhaps, than I love Michelle Pfeiffer, or even Addicted to Love, for that matter), but even so, for sheer demonic panache Maggie is irresistible!
