Happy Monday!

I took the weekend off from reading to catch up on my blogging, work deadlines, and pull out an old story I quit writing two years ago to see if I felt like working on it again.

You know, as a reviewer, I think it’s good practice to try your hand at writing fiction every now and again. I know it’s always helped me remember how hard it is to write a story, and whether a novel has holes or is trope heavy, it’s still someones hard work. (and crafting a story is very hard work.)

Reviewing, for me, is about honesty, but also respect. I try to understand the target audience and make sure I am in the right mood to be reviewing. If I find I’m feeling really negatively toward a book, I usually set it down and try it again a week later. Some times the difference is huge! (also, if I find the book is a 2 star or lower in my opinion, I actually won’t review it here at all.)

Ultimately, I hope that the reviews I write help books find the right people to read them. After all, no two persons ever read the same book.

My friend @mvoisin and I were texting back and forth a bit this week about writing and reviewing and I thought this comment from her was a perfect summation:

“What many people don’t realize is that there are multiple elements that make a good story. It can be a great book with poor character development or holes. It’s not mutually exclusive. A great author can sum all of that up into a great book, but that doesn’t mean that there’s no value in books with missing parts.” -Mandy Voisin (author of “Star of Deliverance”)

What do you look for in a review?

Reaper76 and Ana76?

Send me a ship and I’ll rate it

Reaper/76

NOTP || Just no || Meh || Neutral || Good Potential || Ship it || OTP || JUST FUCK ALREADY

I can’t reconcile Soldier and Reaper, or even Jack and Gabriel. 

The nature of their relationship is so fraternal (I think Jack will always be ‘the little brother’), and it’s fraught with tension, and resentment, and disappointment. They can’t wait to get their hands all over each other, but it’s for assault or murder, not sex.

But here’s the trick with ships. I say the above about canon, in-media Overwatch. When it comes to RP, you can’t use the same set of rules. You need hooks, and plot devices, and complications. If you and a writer click and have just the right mood between you, you can ship the canon unshippable.

E.g., as dead set as I am against R76, I could write it. Why? Because I click with @commandergabrielr and the tone of our interactions have enough affection that we could do it if we had to or felt like it. By that same token, I could write it with @reyes-is-dead too, but it would take on a very different and much darker bent.


Ana/76

NOTP || Just no || Meh || Neutral || Good Potential || Ship it || OTP || JUST FUCK ALREADY

This one almost works, but doesn’t quite. I love Ana and Jack, but I often compare them to Harry & Hermione because they are wonderful platonic friends, but how she hasn’t beaten him comatose with the butt of her rifle, I don’t know. They also have what I’d call a sibling-like relationship, and I think she and Jack love each other dearly, but it’s not that kind of love.

It could work in RP with the right Ana and Jack. Again, you have the added plot devices and extra background material, so even with canon characters the ballgame’s changed. But like everything else, it’s so dependent upon the writers. 

Like, I don’t think @anathesniper could do it. Even if we sat down and said, “let’s try this.”, we’d fail. It just doesn’t feel right. But she might very well work it with another Jack. I don’t have or desire to have another Ana (mun & muse friendship was just a home run, first at bat), but the same is theoretically possible in the reverse.

anonymous asked:

I have known about not being straight for a couple years, but only in the past few months figured out about being a lesbian. (I though I was aro/ace for a whole but then girls happened lol) In general I think I am perceived as being straight, and I want to change that. I am in a pretty accepting and open community, I jut feel like I haven't gotten around to really being out/ I don't know how to make that happen/ I don't know how to casually bring it up in conversation. I'm in 11th grade btw

I get u anon (I’m a junior too!). you gotta feel empowered–you set the terms, you decide when the mood is right, the power to come out is yours, and nobody else has the right to take it away from you. run through the halls with a rainbow flag on your back, pass out violets to the girls at school, or start somewhere telling people you feel safe and comfortable with.

Why am I explaining this kinda crap to y’all I still have trouble reading clocks and telling left from right. Go fucking google this shit like I did you nerds. Find actual trans folk and people who have their fucking sexual orientation figured out and ask THEM I am hardly a good source for this kind of information especially when I’m a mood where everything fucking sets me off

anonymous asked:

11, 16, 46 ☺️

11. What do you drink in the morning?

I used to have hot green tea every morning! Sencha or gyokuro. Now it’s either water, ensure, or nothing. I want to get back into my tea ritual. It was so peaceful.

16. Would you rather it be sunny or rainy?

That’s such a tough choice. I find happiness and solace in both. Today was sunny and windy and I wouldn’t have changed a thing. :)

46. Are you in a good mood right now?

You know… I am very content in many ways today and I am grateful for that since I’ve been pretty down. I just moved in with my flower and we are setting things up. :)

Behind the scenes of The Stolen Earth / Journey’s End (Part 3 of 8)

Excerpts from Doctor Who Magazine #398, as reported by Benjamin Cook

Back on set, fumes are pouring from the police box.  Well, they may as well be.  “Someone’s just dropped a humdinger in there,” cringes David.  “I think it’s John, but he’s denying it.”

But Barrowman isn’t fooled.  “It’s you!  You’re farting through the ship, David!  Doctor Poo!”

“He’s in a very naughty mood,” notes Catherine Tate.  “He keeps on doing it.”

Sure enough, five minutes later, David breaks wind again.  This time, John is standing right behind him.  “I didn’t know you were there,” gulps David.  “I am so, so sorry.  That was rancid.”

“My leg is burning,” John tells DWM.  “Make a note.”

“John and I do get slightly competitive,” confesses David, afterwards, “but only when it comes to farting.  I think in every other sense…”  You’re better than him?  “Not at all.  He can high-kick higher than anyone I’ve ever met! No, we’re quite well balanced.  It’s a very ego-free set.  Even people who might come to work with grand egos tend not to bring them to Doctor Who. You can’t get away with it.  We won’t have any of that nonsense here.  To be honest, none of the individuals on set today would be like that anyway. All the people who’ve been regulars are people who I genuinely enjoy spending time with.  To have them all together in one room is such a treat. It’s a bit distracting at times, because it’s a lot of fun, but I hope everyone is having a good time.  I’m having a ball!
