Doctor Who Series 8

Doctor Who Series 8 Is Upon Us

I am a massive Doctor Who fan. I have two sonic screwdrivers, multiple pairs of socks, and a TARDIS night light and that is just the start of it. I’m fairly certain there are others that are even bigger fans then me. However, I won’t let someone with a more obsessive personality than my own…

Representation in Fiction

Let’s be clear, I am only one voice. One opinion. With one point of view that has been impacted by my unique experiences. That is the exact way it is very everyone. Each person is born into this world with no control over the circumstances of their life. They are born a person with certain…

The Strain - "Occultation"

The Strain – Occultation

Clearly there must either be a hierarchy or learning process that is associated with being a vampire. Eichorst is proof that vampires are capable of higher thought processes. His mere existence confirms that vampires can possess control and be more than just the mindless beasts that Vasiliy saw running around the sewers of New York.…

Friendship in Fiction

Friendship is arguably the most important relationship portrayed in fiction. Friendship is a relationship that must be forged and worked on. However, when established the bond of a friendship can be at times stronger than bonds of family. A real friend can often transcend the technical restrictions of blood and circumstance and become part of…

Space Opera

I’ve talked about how Space Operas are coming back into the prevalence of the social consciousness, at least movie wise. Space Operas are very much like epic fantasies. The main difference is that rather than having a “fantasy” world for the world changing story to take place, it takes place in space whether the plot…

Extant - "Nightmares"

Extant – Nightmares

Ethan was never programmed to dream, yet minutes into the episode he was awoken to a nightmare. It wasn’t just fear of the dream, but fear from an entirely new experience that clearly wasn’t pleasant. He shouldn’t be dreaming, but the fact that he is poses interesting prospects for the future of his character as…

Possibilities in Science Fiction

I’ll be entirely honest, I am a fan of Science Fiction and Fantasy because it presents possibilities. An endless array of possibilities on what could happen. That concept alone of what could be is something that keeps me going with science fiction no matter what is going on. I love the idea of what could…

The Moment My Story Clicked

I’ve been editing my novel for a while now. It’s been going on and off for 7 months now. At first I thought my novel was decent, but needed to be more interconnected. I was worried and concerned about if the story was ready. However as I went through for this draft, I found myself…

Comic Book Movies

Comics are a beautiful thing. So are movies. Each medium is uniquely beautiful with the ability to reach people and touch them in ways that can’t always be seen. Comic Book movies meld the two experiences together. The result is often something that is either successful or a failure. The adaptation becomes even more important…

Extant - "What on Earth is Wrong"

Extant – What on Earth Is Wrong

Molly really is a character of poor circumstance. everything in her life seems to be going poorly and all her hallucinations and bad dreams are not helping them. After her impromptu surgery the night before, they didn’t even have the decency to bring her back to safety. Instead, they dropped her in the middle of…

Stalling

Let’s be honest, sometimes getting to actually writing can be difficult. It is so easy to get comfortable with leisurely editing or just relaxing that writing seems like a far cry. Even worse, new projects or slow editing can be a diversion tactic from actually getting your work ready for submission or publication depending on…

First or Third Person?

Writing can be rought especially when you aren’t sure about the best route to portray the story. I’m talking about whether you wish to choose first person, third limited, third omniscent, or event second person. There are cases when you may decide which you want by simply knowing. There is no doubt in your mind…

The Strain - "It's Not for Everyone"

The episode picked up right where it left off with Eph, Martinez, and Jim dealing with the dead body of the former pilot on the floor. The scientists they are wish to experiment, but they want to honor his death. This meant dissecting the former pilot and they found that he had an entirely different…
