The last few days have fallen victim to my tendency-to-over-commit syndrome, but I have been keeping one eye on what everyone is up to. Since I’ll be away from my broadband for a few more days, I thought I’d share some of the great conversations and news happening at my favorite blogs.
Julia Barrett has been hosting a great conversation on heroes. She uses one of my favorite new movies to make some points and talks a bit about Jamie Frasier. I know some of you are nuts over the man, so you might want to check it out.
- A few of my favorite bad boys in literature/romance
- When the hero isn’t a nice guy.
- When the hero isn’t a nice guy, part two.
Important! Don’t forget to vote for Maria Zannini’s Mistress of the Stone in the Writing With The Stars contest.
Over at the Galaxy Express, Heather is trying to get a conversation going on what SFR needs.
- Science Fiction Romance Needs to Get High On…Concept
- And don’t forget her Call for 2011 SFR titles.
Rae Lori has been talking about Science Fiction For Boys, For Girls, For All. On SFR, she says “For me, in the best stories that feature sci-fi and romance, we see the classic commentary of humanity, the socialization of technology and the ideas of the future or otherworld mixed with the character depths, emotion and involvement of a good love story.” Great discussion.
Over at Geeky Girls Love Sci-Fi they are saying “Stake us, stake us now.” Can you guess where they stand on the news about the planned Buffy remake? They also have some interesting posts following the news.
- Bad news for Buffy fans: Warner Bros Plan Remake without Whedon
- Buffy Reboot: Joss Whedon Gives his Verdict
Finally, I’d like to recommend a slightly off topic blog. One of my friends, a beautifully lyrical writer, currently not writing, is blogging on life and the inner workings of the human soul (my words – not hers). It is really a personal journal type blog and she doesn’t post every day, but the writing is always mesmerizing and thought-provoking. Visit her at her blog: I’m Trying to DO Something! If you do, be sure to let me know if you liked it.
