Since the TFIOS movie became available On Demand and for digital download and people can now pause and zoom in and stuff, many people have asked who wrote the pages of An Imperial Affliction that appear in the movie.
I did. Executive producer Isaac Klausner asked me to write four pages (the two you see here and the final two pages of the book) for the movie edition of An Imperial Affliction, so I did. In this passage, Anna is recalling intense pain breaking through her high doses of narcotic pain medication.
The book that Hazel reads in the movie is just the four pages I wrote printed over and over again hundreds of times. I have a copy of it in my house; it’s my only souvenir from the movie set.
“A little bit of Monica in my life, A little bit of Erica by my side, A little bit of Rita is all I need, A little bit of Tina is what I see, A little bit of Sandra in the sun, A little bit of Mary all night long, A little bit of Jessica, here I am…”
If you don’t know this reference, you’re definitely too young for me.
Basically everyone doing the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:
Many late nights of sewing for the Steampunk Festival have lead me to this…
Gotta Sew (to the tune of Let It Go)
The project sits untouched tonight On the table… in my room. I know I’ve got to finish but HEY there’s new songs on itunes. The clock is ticking Sayin’ I’m running out of time. Gotta focus now, kiss facebook goodnight.
Turn off youtube Shut down the screen Fine, grab one more spoonful of ice cream. Shut up, sit down Get on the go. Don’t wanna though.
Gotta sew, gotta sew Can’t waste my time any more. Gotta sew, gotta sew Go away and close my door. I don’t know when I’ll ever be done. Turn the steam iron on. Lack of sleep never bothered me anyway.
It’s funny how some focus Can make everything seem fun. And the crap that sits around me Is finally getting done! It’s time to see what I can do To wave my fingers and start to come up with genius shortcuts tonight F*kin’ right!
Gotta sew! Gotta sew! Can’t hold me back anymore! Gotta sew! Gotta sew! (Wait, I think I should check Tumblr) NO, don’t do it! You’re so freakin’ close. And the clock ticks on…
My eye lids fight me, trying to fill my head with gloom. My sister’s talking about dragons in the other room. I wanna quit so bad, now I’m too tired to care! Why’d I go to school for this? It makes me pull out my hair!
Gotta sew! Gotta sew! I just got my second wind! Gotta sew! Gotta sew! We’re almost at the end! Now I stand, YES, I’m done all the way! Oh… I’ve done the whole thing wrong…. Guess I’ll work on this another day…
