Thursday Fun: "Chocolat"

The best thing about the movie Chocolat as a work of literature is that every time I watch the smallest clip I desperately want to eat chocolate (and Johnny Depp). But especially chili-pepper truffles and melted dark chocolate.

I don’t mean that as flippantly as it sounds. One of the goals of writing is to create desire in your reader. To make them want to know what happens, to make them empathize, imagine, think. When I write about blood, I want you to smell it. When I write about pain, I want you to ache.

If I wrote about chocolate and you went out and HAD to buy some, I’d consider my work a success.
