Why Does Preachy/Safe Book and Movie Writing Fail So Badly? #Fantasy #Fiction #Advice

Okay… I’m going to try to put a stop to this, because my focus on movie writing lately has taken my blog WAY off topic, almost to the point of Hollywood Advocacy, and it needs to stop.

A Reaction to Midnight’s Edge Star Wars Video #MidnightsEdge #StarWars #D23 #Opinion

  Okay, first of all, I’m usually a fan of Midnight’s Edge. They seem to have a strong finger on the pulse of not only the fans, but also the movie/tv productions as well. I will admit that they often take a rather pessimistic stance. I do enjoy their round tables especially, but in this case… I really feel the need to speak on … Read More A Reaction to Midnight’s Edge Star Wars Video #MidnightsEdge #StarWars #D23 #Opinion

A Story about Steampunk Sky Pirates? Yes please!

Saw this while browsing the wordpress pages. It’s a pretty good read! Having read another bloggers serial fantasy story (in collaboration with someone else) it’s inspired me to have a go at writing my own fantasy story. My main objective is to have fun writing it.

The Disney Effect…

You know… I’m starting to understand the gripe everyone has with Disney’s… bastardization of children’s literature. Initially, whenever someone griped over the princesses or the cheesy love at first sight stories, I kind of just rolled my eyes. Come on, they were harmless children’s stories, right? Well… Yesterday, we put on Mickey and the Beanstalk for Gabe and… well let’s just say it’s a … Read More The Disney Effect…
