A Writer's Update

A Writer’s Update – Long Time, No Write

Hello Readers,

I must admit that I did not imagine getting back to my posts or my Writer Updates would take quite this long. I was unfortunately recovering from an accident back in June and before I knew it I was drowning work projects and just trying to catch up with myself at one point.

Really bummed that I was not able to complete and upload my final Orphan Black episode review when it aired :-/ I still have my notes however and I will complete that series of reviews. The same goes for my Daredevil reviews. If it weren’t for buffer, I don’t even think my tweets would have stayed so current.

In case you do not remember, I did a post like forever ago about not letting the outside world steal you away from your Writers’ Realm and boy was I not only snatched away, I was deflected; still trying to figure out the direction I should be heading in next.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have quite a few books to throw myself into over the summer and they’ve been great at guiding me towards a new re-charged and motivated mode. So, that’s the reason for the new review addition to the site, also who doesn’t enjoy a good book review or recommendation every once and a while, amiright? 😉

My taste for a good solid book floats all over the board, so expect a wide range in material with the book reviews.

In addition, I have a number of new pieces for my Protector Series that need to be edited and dressed up a bit with specific banners/covers for each story. So, expect to see more of that soon.

As you will see below, I will try to promote & share interesting webisodes, cool music, or pieces of art that I come across for you guys as a bout of inspiration boost. I believe it’s important that we always laugh, love, think, learn and inspire one another in life. And sharing–as they say–is caring ^__^.  And I am happy that I’ve been fortunate enough to come across a few good things to share lately 🙂

Last, but certainly not least on my list of updates, is I will be introducing a Character Study portion to my site in late Autumn/ Early Winter. This addition will not be limited to shows and characters in the US only. I intend for it to be worldwide, as to introduce and spread the word about memorable and unique characters and shows that deserve a bit of attention.

This weekend’s promote & share is a Comedy Web Series written by Paul Carganilla, Jared White, & Stephen Young titled Winners.

Short synopsis of the show: It’s a group of ‘artists’ who lived together with their manager in his house trying to make it in Hollywood.

More info can be found on their Facebook page & the show’s website here. If you like it too, then please go and check it out. I’ve watched these episodes a zillion times ^__^.

NOTE: I do not know these people at all, I just enjoy their work and this is strictly an appreciation post from fan.

And, without further ramblings, I give you Winners 🙂

Thanks for reading & Happy Saturday. Until next time,

Gia.

A Writer’s Update–In A Flash

Happy Sunday, Clone Club and happy mother’s day to all the moms out there. I’ll make this brief; it has been a long, long last few days and I do apologize for this week’s regularly scheduled post being delayed. On top of Mother’s Day, today was my uncle’s birthday, yesterday was mine & my brothers’ (we’re twins) as well as my sister’s college graduation from IUP. Most people don’t know about IUP and that’s okay, but know this–it is a long drive. Needless to say, typing up all my notes and getting my thoughts organized have been a bit exigent. On top of this weekend’s events, I also work and have just entered the last month of my MFA Creative Writing  program.

Anyway, this is just a quick writer update, I’ll have much, much more news for you later this week ;-). I also wanted to  take a second to say how excited I was when I found out our Orphan Black has been picked up for a fourth season by BBC America! Yes! #Cloneclub members, we can rejoice! ^__^

We’re only on episode four of season three and to learn that we’re definitely getting more from these characters was just so amazing. You can read the official word, released on May 7th, from BBC America here. I have a few hours of sleep to catch up on, but I will have a new, clean, mean, nail biting review post up tomorrow.

As always, stay creative,

Gia.
