The Green Green Grass poem video by Nordette Adams



Oddly, I had just completed a survey for Redroom.com and said that I've never used the send this to a friend feature because I hadn't yet seen something I wanted to send to a friend from the site. Redroom is a book authors' site that I joined because I saw another writer I know using it.

In a way what I said on the survey is still true because generally I don't email stuff that I like. I blog it instead or write an article about it, which is what I did the last time I saw something I liked on Redroom, or I tweet it. Anyway, I hit the submit button on the survey, was taken to Redroom and saw a video by Caroline Rance using the tools at the XtraNormal.com website.

Her video is "I'd Love to Be A Writer" and it's amusing, referencing J.K. Rowling's success. Rance is the author of the historical novel Kill-Grief.

I decided to try out XtraNormal and so I plugged in the words to one of my shorter poems, The Green Green Grass. Immediately I see that making movies at XtraNormal could be addictive.
