This is part of my series on foreign film, indie film, and film festival winners. These types of films are a huge influence on my writing and I want to share them with you.
Drama, Romance, Thriller
I was only fifteen when Bitter Moon came out. It wasn’t something they showed at the local movie theater, so I’ve missed it all these years. Someone recommended it to me recently (I think it was one of you dear readers) and once I knew it was Polanski, I put it on my list of must-see missed films.
Synopsis (Spoilers! If you plan to watch Bitter Moon, do not read under any circumstances.)
Since I started writing a few years ago, I discovered a peculiar phenomenon – I’m often shocked at what happens when these fingertips hit the keys.
I know many writers plot out every scene ahead of time. I thought that would be my way of putting a novel together. I am obsessed with efficiency and order in my daily life. However, I’ve found that I can’t adhere to any structure when writing. I suppose that’s why it’s so exhilarating and therapeutic for me. I get to let the messy, intuitive side out to play.
I’ve just finished Part II of the SICK series that my readers voted for. I had planned to finish it sooner, speed-publishing it like the first book, but I was delayed by my own aversion to the manuscript. Yes, I freaked myself out with my own writing. SICKER has become sicker than I ever wanted it to be.

I wanted to try the pre-order option as part of my Kindle self-publishing trials and errors. There’s no going back now. The completed manuscript must be uploaded to Amazon by September 21st! Time to get to revising. I promise you’ll have a very pretty and deliciously disturbing book in your hands on October 1st.
