I have been seeing a sentiment amongst writers that has sort of frustrated me. So here is my defense for both writing and reading trash. Continue reading In the Defense of Trash
SO, I totally forgot to blog last week. Here is one for writers which I think will help. This will be an ongoing series for places I tend to go for reliable sources of inspiration when I’m stuck or need something in the background. With Netflix’s new show Street Food it is the perfect time to talk about the number one thing I turn on … Continue reading Reliable Places of Inspiration – Travel, Food and Culture Shows
Well, I knew I should have drafted something earlier this week… What to talk about… Harder to say when I am actually doing really well with nothing to report. I am working away on the Blacksword Saga drafts. I’m trying to keep up the pace on them, but this forth episode is forcing me into a different kind of story that I find harder to … Continue reading Mid April Update: Ramblings… then a point about episodic storytelling

Because I like to break it! Oh shit, I guess I still agreed to do this weekly. This week was better, mostly because I kept busy with the Manitoban. Still not doing great but it’s better than drowning. What the hell do I talk about? I guess I can talk about genre. GENRE! Genre is defined by the Cambridge Dictionary as “A style, especially in … Continue reading Why I Love Genre?
I’m really not that okay… I guess I promised myself to do this weekly… I’ll add the usual preface. My month was not your month. I am writing this entirely as a point of therapy for myself because well… writing does help. Screaming into the void does help. Just putting my thoughts and feelings into something readable allows me to process it better than the cascade of half-formed thoughts. … Continue reading February 2019: What the hell?
Genre Fiction as Family Dramas (Mild Spoilers ahead) I have just finished the first season of Netflix’s Umbrella Academy and I have some stuff to talk about. When watching this Saturday-Morning-style superhero Drama, created Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance fame, I could not help but notice it’s similarities to another Netflix genre series; The Haunting of Hill House by Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus & Gerald’s Game). Both shows operate as long-form … Continue reading Netflix’s Sibling Dramas: Hill House & Umbrella Academy
