The Movie of My Life – Blogger Writing Challenge

I am trying something a little bit different, so run with it.

Welcome to The Movie of My Life. I hope that these prompts will spark a little bit of conversation and give a little insight into your life. You don’t need to be a blogger to participate; you could write your answers in a  Facebook Status, a Blog Comment, on a scrap of paper. You could create a mock-up Movie poster if you really want!

The Movie Of My Life - Blogger Writing Prompt - Juniper Daze

The Idea

Using the below prompts, explain a little about The Movie of Your Life. Imagine a Hollywood producer has heard all about you and wants to make a Movie of Your Life. Remember you have creative control, you choose what goes in the movie! You can choose to explain as much or as little about why you have made your choices. You can add in as many characters, songs, descriptions as you want! Once you have answered the questions, nominate a few other bloggers or people to write about the movie of their life! Please link back to the original post ( too! Use the Hashtag #MovieofMyLife on Twitter so we can read each other’s movies!

The Prompts

The Title:

“When Life Gives You Lemons…” – I really like this saying, I use it quite a lot and often it is what I need to consider when hurdles come into my life.

Starring: (Choose however many people you want to star in your movie)

Jennifer Lawrence as Steph – I love Jennifer Lawrence, I think she has the right amount of awkwardness and humour as me. Also she is beautiful and you know it’s my movie, I could look like that right?!

David Tennant as my husband – Again, it’s my movie and it’s Holywood anything is possible! David Tennant has the right amount of cool but geeky that my husband is.

Emma Thomson as my Mum – My mum has played a big part in my life and so I would need a strong female actress to portray her. I think Emma Thompson is the right person.

Tom Hanks as my University Lecturer – Okay I’ve said it so many times I wish Robert Langdon from Dan Brown’s novels were my Uni Lecturer, but we will settle for Tom Hanks being my university lecturer and perhaps dissertation supervisor. (I am really playing with artistic license here)


Pretenders: Don’t Get Me Wrong – This is going to be played over the opening credits, I think an introduction to me. A montage of my daily life. I always listen to this song when I am on a power walk somewhere, it just gets me in the right frame of mind. Jennifer Lawrence and David Tenant are just going about their everyday lives.

The Temper Trap: Sweet Disposition – This is going to be played when I am probably at University. I imagine a scene with me losing the will to live over a stupid essay that is due in five hours and I’ve no idea what king or queen or century these events took place in but I am powering through. Maybe it ends with my going to see Tom Hanks.

The Time Warp – This has to be featured at some point in the middle. Probably towards the end of Uni, maybe at my graduation. It is not a party if the Time Warp is not cracked out.

You Make My Dreams Come True – Hall and Oates – This was the song we played at our wedding after we got married so it has to feature. However, there would be a dance break like on 500 days of summer.

Here Comes the Sun – The Beatles – The end of the Movie would end on an inspirational high. With this song playing over the end credits. People will be inspired by my amazing life and boom!

Filming Location:

I think I would stick to Scotland as a filming location. In and around Edinburgh . Of course we could feature some of my favorite holidays in the movie and of course, I would be an executive producer and need to, therefore, go on these holidays. Remember that time when I hired a whole island. . .

Poster Tagline:

She’s taken her lemons and made Gin and Tonic…

Enjoyed This? You Might like . . .

Some films that are like the Movie of my Life

Bridget Jones – I don’t know anyone who cannot relate to Bridget Jones in some way. I can relate to Bridget Jones in far too many ways.

Miss Congeniality – I am that awkward person that doesn’t really do makeup or beauty and would be so out of place in a beauty pageant.

Eat Pray Love – You know that inspired warm fuzzy feeling you get at the end of this film. That’s what you will feel when you watch the movie of my life.
