Star Wars is dying. It’s an unfortunate truth but the truth nonetheless. The current trilogy that is coming to an end this Christmas is a relief more in the fact that it is ending than we get to see the new film at last. Another truth, however, is that the universe in which Star Wars
Seven days ago, I set myself the challenge to write a journal entry every day for 30 days. One week in and I’ve already learnt a lot. Journaling is an artform I’ll be honest, this isn’t the first thing I thought I was going to discover. I had assumed that journal entries would be clunky
The final year of secondary school drags. The next step is so close but there is a lot of work to be done first. While your parents, teachers, crazy uncles and lazy pets are telling you what to do, maybe this short list of things to remember might be useful. Reminder #1: You Don’t Have
First off, I’d say my writing routine is to write all the time, whenever I can. That won’t go on forever. It can’t or I’ll become the world’s biggest hermit. Currently I’m trying to launch two series and some nonfiction and want to succeed financially at it, so I’m pushing like crazy. When I begin
The Bands of Mourning are the mythical metal minds owned by the Lord Ruler, said to grant anyone who wears them the powers that the Lord Ruler had at his command. Hardly anyone thinks they really exist. A kandra researcher has returned to Elendel with images that seem to depict the Bands, as well as
Talking about mental health is hard, so I will begin with some statistics (from 2018): In the UK, Men are three times more likely to die by suicide than women Men aged 45-49 have the highest rate of suicides in the UK In Scotland, the suicide rate among 15-24 year-olds increased by 52.7% Data is
What keeps us going? What keeps us writing, painting, filming, knitting… What is it that makes us want to continue creating? It’s a question I’ve been asking myself a lot recently. I turned twenty two last month and since then I’ve been trying to figure out what I’ve achieved. What had I done to be
The news is rarely positive. I can understand many people taking time away from new sites, focusing on themselves and enjoying their lives. I do this myself, all the time! I check the news once or twice a week, but I make sure never to spend too much time on it unless there is something
There is something you should never do straight after writing a draft and that’s read it. I had never followed this rule before because it never bothered me when I thought it was bad…This book, however, I care about a lot. And it’s terrible.
So, since CW’s Arrowverse started up again about 6 weeks ago, I have been writing reviews for Supergirl, Batwoman, The Flash, and Arrow. The problem with writing reviews for each episode is that not all are great, and not all are terrible. Most are average and there isn’t much to talk about in them. Because
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This was essentially a backstory episode, and as much as I enjoyed it, I’m not sure why we needed it. I liked how it explained Lena’s extreme reaction to Supergirl’s betrayal, but beyond that everything could have been explained through present-day dialogue. My point is, this episode felt like a
Shadows of Self shows Mistborn’s society evolving as technology and magic mix, the economy grows, democracy contends with corruption, and religion becomes a growing cultural force, with four faiths competing for converts. This bustling, optimistic, but still shaky society now faces its first instance of terrorism, crimes intended to stir up labor strife and religious conflict.
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 3/5 This wasn’t a bad episode. It was essentially a filler episode that gave some clues for the future of the season (the near future, that is). It was Cisco’s episode and he shone, he really did. The character is so close to many of our hearts so watching him best
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 Arrow keeps going strong. The meeting of the future and present heroes of the show has had us all waiting impatiently for this past week, and the episode did not disappoint. The episode did a great job of balancing the emotional turmoil of the characters – when certain things were
SPOILERS AHEAD My Rating: 4/5 This has been a strong start for the arrowverse this week. First Supergirl, and now Batwoman, have released their best episodes of the season. Alice’s backstory was more interested than I could have hoped for. It’s creepy, disturbing, and makes for a brilliant explanation for how messed up Beth/Alice is.
