Something a little different this week. I actually went to an amazing writing conference last week, and I was planning to blog about that this week, but then this showed up in my feed and derailed my brain. Lin-sanity! Don't worry, I'll talk about the writing seminar next time. But in case your sports bone … Continue reading Basketball?
Going the Distance
It isn't often that I will read a series to its conclusion. There is just so much media out there to soak up, not just books, but tv, movies, comics. It's hard to keep track of everything, and even if I really like something, it's tough to remember to stay current with it when there … Continue reading Going the Distance
Extra Large, with a Side of Fries
I grew up on superhero comics. Spiderman and the X-Men were my favorites in the beginning. Righteous heroes in brightly colored spandex saving the world from dastardly villains. I stayed mostly on the Marvel side until I finally read The Dark Knight Returns and absolutely had my mind blown. I had never read a comic … Continue reading Extra Large, with a Side of Fries
…right in the nostalgia!
I am three episodes into Paper Girls on Amazon Prime and I. Am. Loving it. As someone who grew up right through the rip roaring 80s, this show hits all my buttons. Latch key kids, riding around on their bikes getting into all kinds of trouble, this isn't just my jam, this was actually my … Continue reading …right in the nostalgia!
Enter the DragonCon, 2022
Legit credentials Back from Atlanta and had a blast at DragonCon last weekend! I've been to smaller cons before, but this was my first "big league" con and, wow, what an experience. I think this year's attendance was capped at 60,000 and even that was a little overwhelming. I can't imagine what it will be … Continue reading Enter the DragonCon, 2022
The Sandman – e6, The Sound of Her Wings
If you aren't watching The Sandman on Netflix yet...well, why not? It. Is. Amazing! I own the entire run of Sandman in trade paperbacks (not savvy enough to have collected them as monthlies), and while I love the entire run, there are a few storylines that (for whatever reason) resonate with me and have remained … Continue reading The Sandman – e6, The Sound of Her Wings
Umbrella Academy, s3 – thoughts
Just finished season three of Umbrella Academy on Netflix last night and still really enjoying one of the best comics adaptations on TV right now. (Along with Sandman, Netflix is killing it!) Spoilers below... . . . . . . Full disclosure, Hotel Oblivion is the one arc I haven't read yet, but I will … Continue reading Umbrella Academy, s3 – thoughts
Current Reads: The Art of Prophecy
The Art of Prophecy starts with the dazzlingly simple idea: What if the prophesied hero...isn't?
Seminars and Cons, Oh My!
The Bay Bridge, in morning fog. Shot from the back of the Ferry Building. Quintessential San Francisco summer, right here. Ah, San Francisco, how I love this city. Last week I attended the San Francisco Writer's Conference. If you've never been to a writer's conference, they're usually multi-day events where writers of all stripes gather … Continue reading Seminars and Cons, Oh My!
Stakes and Bones – Coming Soon!
If you're here because you've been following my read-along for weeks and week, thank you very much! As I said last week, the experience of reading The Legend of the Condor Heroes was very gratifying. I'm also glad I got the chance to read it and share my experiences with my mom. For her it … Continue reading Stakes and Bones – Coming Soon!
