Yes, I’m still writing. Yes, someday I’ll post more. I’m getting company tomorrow and this place is a hellhole, so today is Clean All the Things All Day. BUT . . .
The Book Club:
I’m not sure how useful/helpful/fun the bookclub was for you all. So I’m cogitating.
I’m thinking about extending it to non-fiction, which would remove the “only dead authors” restriction since we’d be talking about concepts, not creative expression (yes, I realize non-fiction is creative, but we wouldn’t be analyzing somebody else’s fantasies). Mollie has pointed out that this blog has to be for readers, too, not just writers, but there’s other good non-fiction topics out there.
Hmmm. Possibly it’s time for a poll.
I like doing the binge watches because I get to talk about writing while watching shows I like again. I never finished the Leverage binge watch, must have wandered off, so I’ll do that later this summer. I’m going through and reorganizing and rewriting some of the posts now, so I’ll put up a table of contents post later this summer with the new schedule and notice of rewrites. And I want to do the same thing for Sense8 before it comes back. That one was such a perfect combination of train-wreck and triumph that it really deserves more scrutiny. And I need to go through and do the same thing for the Arrow posts; there was some good stuff in there even if the show did slide rapidly into the abyss.
And then there’s new stuff: I want to do a binge watch for Limitless at some point (short one, probably a month to six weeks; it only lasted a season, damn it). I want to do one for iZombie, which is coming back next year for a third season. I want to do Life on Mars, which I’d been avoiding because it’s so hard to find uncut online (Hulu has ruined it with the cut version is shows) and then I realized it’s probably only hard to find in America; also I think it’s one of the best stories I’ve ever seen.
The bottom line is, I like doing binge watches. They’re easier than book clubs.
So what do you think?
