Weekend Update: September 18-24 with 50% more fanfic!

Tweet of the Day: The Big Sexy Problem with Superheroines and Their ‘Liberated Sexuality’ ——– This was the week of ending and near endings. Wizards’ World War Season 1 drew to a close. It felt a bit rushed, I know, and I’ll have to revised in the near future, but my gut told me that […]

A Little Theory of Mine About Men and Women

OK, I admit it, I am bored. I should be writing and no blogging is not writing (raised eyebrow). Yet, I had this old (and perhaps sexist) idea bouncing in my mind for awhile. Hence the title. It goes something like this: a key difference between men and women is that men are possessive and […]

All That He Knows….

This post is an offshoot of a past post about unreliable narrators although it applies to characters in general but specifically character(s)-as-narrator or POV character. A question(s) that a writer must always ask himself is: What does the character know? And… When did he know it? Writers must be careful on how they doled out […]

Sick as a dog

Sorry for the lack of updates. As the title indicates, I’m not feeling well at the moment. Will post something as soon as the situation improves. Until then….

And then there was Harry….

But the movie did not. After three days of trying I finally saw Half-Blood Prince. So how was it? The Good: The acting was top notch all around. Jessie Cave played the crazy obsessed girlfriend to the hilt, Rupert excelled as the comedic foil of the film (great Quiddich sequence showing Ron in full form […]

Got Muse? A Few Questions for Writers

A quick survey type meme from leftywritey via Tasha blog. 1) Where do you write? Coffee shop. 2) When do you write? In the afternoon. 3) Planner or Pantser? Panster with a bit of mapping along the way. 4) Coffee or tea? Coffee shop equals coffee, ’nuff said. 5) Pen and paper, or computer? Pen […]

Things I don’t do.

As a writer/blogger: No outlines. No daily updates. No word counts. No reviews. No TBR piles. None of that. I explain in detail why I don’t do outlines. No need to rehash that. Daily updates? Forget it. Tried it, could not come up with enough material to feed the daily monster so I don’t even […]

It’s a mistake! Time to edit.

Now that is a good question (posed by Benjamin Solah over at the AW Forums). I start editing the moment I write I write my first drafts on legal notepad (white-blue lined). That gives me the freedom to add notes, scratch entire senteces, scenes or what have you. When I tried to do it in […]

BSG was not the best show on television.

And if it was, then American television sucks! “What are you talking about?” “Battlestar Galactica was the best show on….” No it was not. I say this as a disgruntled fan. I abandoned the show when the humans decended to Hell, or should I say New Caprica. Until that moment I defended the show every […]

Of Anxieties, Frustrations and Self Imposed Deadlines

Another month, another blogroll. Welcome fellow scribes and members of the AW Forums to my humble site. Before we begin, here are the rules of this thing we call a blogroll (paraphrased from the original): The first person (in this case, me) just makes a post on their blog. The person following (Unfocused Me) will […]
