1. Because I can’t wait until November 18th… I made a fan-trailer. COMMENCING FANGIRL SQUEAL NOW.

  2. Definitely inspired by Lisa Burstien’s post, which Lindsay Leavitt’s post inspired.

    I can’t attest to what genre I write yet. I can’t even tell you whether I enjoy first person POV above third. I can’t decide between the Eagles or Motion City Soundtrack as my favorite band of all time… and I sure as hell can’t decide a favorite movie (although The Princess Bride and When Harry Met Sally are on…

27 years after The Princess Bride appeared on the silver screen, Cary Elwes (who played the beloved role of ‘Westley’) has co-authored a book about the making of the film. It’s called, of course, As You Wish.
One thing I’d like to know: is this a kissing book?

    Being an author can be weird sometimes. Books and readers are benign, right? And yet, at the back of every authors’ mind, I think, is Stephen King’s Misery. At the end of the day, you never know if there’s a potential danger in a fan. 

    This article switches it around, putting the danger in the hands of the author.  And that is a very, very wrong thing. 

    Read on for more about what it’s like to be a public person, the fear of identity, and why this author’s response crosses the line.

    Sorry, I’ve had enough of running away, Sophie. Now I’ve got something I want to protect. It’s you.

    I used to laugh so much about this.  Not once in all the movies does a woman die on screen.  

    I hope that Jurassic World doesn’t break the canon.

  9. Steven Moffat hires zero female writers for Doctor Who -- for the fourth season in a row.

    whovianfeminism:

    Since Steven Moffat took over as Doctor Who showrunner in 2009, he has never hired a single female writer. Only once has he brought on a female director, back in season five. Needless to say, this track record only adds fuel to the ever-growing number of fans who say Moffat is taking Doctor Who in a more conservative and sexist direction.

    Historically, Doctor Who has been a socially progressive show. That’s surely why so many viewers have singled out Steven Moffat for hiring such a vast number of white, male writers while female characters kept turning into flirty sidekicks and the number of non-white characters plummeted. The most popular explanation is that the vast majority of British science fiction TV writers are white men, and only the cream of that crop can be hired to work for the BBC’s flagship show.

    This explanation doesn’t hold up when you consider the number of unavoidably bad episodes that were written by the show’s existing (male) writers. And besides, other successful British sci-fi/fantasy shows like Being Human, Torchwood and Merlin have all hired women to write multiple episodes in the past, and that never seemed to do them any harm.

    "For a show whose success was built on a rebellious attitude towards the sci-fi establishment, why go back to hiring exclusively from the Boys’ Club?"
