We're all in this together.
There isn't a more apt soundtrack for what I'm currently working on - and it's not even a soundtrack at all.
Still writing - it's not much, but it's definitely enough.
Facebook's "war room' is supposed to safeguard the midterm elections (and presumably beyond). It isn't going to help, or not much.
We just can’t fathom the idiocy from corporations and the abuse of fandom. We just can’t.
We discuss fan fiction (turns out, Martyn’s a Trekkie! Who knew?) and the benefits (and dangers!) of putting work and passion into them. We also talk about why today’s the best time to be writing fan fiction, the death of originality, and a lot more.
This week Martyn explains the ins and outs of self-publishing. (He’s a talker! 😛) We also discuss the differences of indie creators in writing and other art forms, talk about audiobooks, and how to promote yourself as a self-publishing author.
We* talk mostly about adaptations: the pitfalls, the mistakes... and found a great writing exercise for you! 😉 *: Greg talks a lot. Sorry 'bout that.
We started a podcast, because we're writers and we need to procrastinate. And also talk about writing. Come meet us, and listen to our take on writing advice, difference in process, and other things.
Democracy hasn't failed, because it never got the chance to not fail. The decision isn’t, and has never been, with the voters. But it could be.
I’ve been following the whole Cambridge Analytica hysteria, like everyone, and the story arc of Marvel's Civil War II kept popping into my head.
With more than 50 years of history in the comics, and a truly mainstream cultural icon for over a decade through the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark certainly made his mark on pop culture. But… is it only pop culture?
The multi-faceted progression, from one atmosphere to another, from one perspective to another, from one story beat to another, is what makes this book such a captivating read.
A response to Ezra Klein's interview with Tristan Harris. Also: a Transhumanist manifesto. Of sorts.
“An unexamined life is not worth living,” said Socrates. How can that apply to getting a better sense of ourselves in a digital context?
Black Panther isn't a particularly good movie. It's a very powerful movie. It's a very important movie. Neither of those things I'll ever be able to appreciate fully.
To say farewell to Meshfire in a proper way, I thought the only fitting way to do so is in a poem, bookending the period we’ve spent together; and the only fitting *form*, I believe, is a haiku.
The iPhone X was supposed to be the Next Big Thing. The Smartphone That Will Define The Next Ten Years of Smartphones. But it's very "meh".
The way I see it, the thing separating beginner and seasoned writers is the blank page. But you don’t start writing when you start writing.
Let’s talk about the elephant... I mean, spider in the room. The Iron Spider in the room, as it were.
Fandom is a fragile treasure of humanity that has to be nurtured and protected.
The use of a definitive article suggest a finality that, thankfully, Joss’ career still lacks, and a sense of authority that the book (in its current form) just doesn’t possess.
Meshfire was able to create a perfect tool for the job. It comes from deeply understanding their audience, their goals and their scope.
