What is the first story you ever wrote? AND What is your favorite Pixar movie? (and why?)
The first story I remember writing was actually written before I could read or spell, so my mom wrote it on paper for me. It was about our cat, Mudd, and an imaginary cat named Love. I also illustrated it, although I made my mom draw all the people because I didn’t like the way they looked when I drew them.
My first “novel” was written when I was about eight, and it was about a group of kids stranded on a deserted island. I don't think I ever finished it, though. I can't go back and check because, as I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned on the blog before, this is the story that I found a couple years later when I was twelve or thirteen. I was so horrified by my old writing that I ripped it into shreds but was still paranoid that someone would find and piece it together, so I burned it. In our bonfire barrel.
I really didn't want anyone reading it, okay?
And now to the next question....
My favorite Pixar movie is Monsters, Inc. I love Sully, guys. I just do. (and Mike is hilarious, of course). I've always loved friendship stories, and this one wins out even over Pixar's other beautiful friendships. Plus, it has some of the funniest and most quotable Pixar lines ever.
|Mike Wazowski is a gift to this world.|
Also, now that I think about it, I've always had a soft spot for large furry monsters...*cough cough* Beauty and the Beast*cough* They just looked warm and cuddly when I was a kid, and in need of hugs. I also found it appealing to like characters (and even more importantly, be liked by characters) that others might find scary or intimidating. (I also think that Monsters, Inc. was the first Pixar movie that I saw in theaters)
My second favorite Pixar movie is probably The Incredibles, although I also like A Bug's Life, which is sadly underrated!
