Hi! 👋 I’m Jessa.

I blog daily about life, work, and the future.

Reading a novel, watching a movie

Written in


Reading a novel pushes your mind to imagine things based on how you interpret the words of its author.

But seeing its interpretation in a motion picture makes the story more alive.

It’s a bonus to see it in the movie just as you imagined. All the better when your mind is opened to new ways of seeing it.


I’m actually thinking about Station Eleven. The book is fantastic, and the tv mini-series is even incredible. I appreciate how they’re the same and different and admire the creative minds who made them happen.
