What this program is to me is yet another reminder as to why I groan at dystopic visions of the future; I consider them dangerous particularly to kids’ and teenagers’ life outlooks.
I have never been gripped by tales set in murky purportedly kinda ancient Celtic or Scandinavian locales, where magic pops up, that are populated by people wearing furs who look like they haven’t ever cut or even combed their hair, or washed in the last decade…
Occasionally the American featured celebrity tracing his/her family tree comes across as – much as I hate to say this – worryingly clueless about wider history and lives lived prior to the present.
I didn’t ask, but I’m thinking some are “his” books and some are “hers.” If you are not yet in a “live-in” relationship, you need to know this, because it’s important: when you end up living permanently with a “special someone,” their books will likely come with them.
Being pursued by the head of a major film studio desperate to buy the rights to your book would be “a problem” most writers would love to have.
When we write, we have to employ everything at our disposal. Whether one writes a comic book, or a novel, a writer must be fearless. As a consequence, we may well be uncomfortable at times with what we create…

I suppose as a result I have been rewarded to learn I have had readers from not only in the US, Britain, and France, and elsewhere in Europe, but also in South America, India, and the Middle East – Lebanon, especially – and other places.
Cricket and baseball may have evolved from the same source(s), but they are now distinctive games and are in fact national cultural emblems of sorts.
Here’s a suggestion of something to try if you are one of those and still claim you don’t know what you want to write about.
What the hell happened? Every successive film now seems to move it increasing light years more away from 1977’s Mark Hamill, Sir Alec Guinness, and crowd… and not in a good way.
My first Kindle reader years ago (it was one of Amazon’s first Kindles) had the capability to “speak” the text electronically. You may remember, or even still have one.
You may well be reading this with headphones in. I dare to wonder what music you associate with me?
But does he really say “de Gaulle?” Lorre there is hard to understand. It does sound as if he says “de Gaulle,” but he somewhat mumbles.
