Writing Challenge – Day 26: How do you handle/deal with both success and failure?
And instead of going into details about how very badly I handle stuff, I’d rather briefly comment on the movie I just saw, which was Captain America:
I LOVED it! It was fun, there was no gratuitous humour, every actor was outstanding, and it had some cool fights. Seeing Chris Evans playing a character so different from what he usually gets was great and it was an admirable task the man’s performance stood out from his massive super manly pecs of doom; it was little Steve all the way through, but partly in the body of a giant beefcake. Infinite Kudos!
