Mara article

Apr. 18th, 2013 | 01:39 pm

I'm thinking of writing an article about Mara Jade for the anniversary of Sacrifice coming out. Something to the effect of why she was so popular with female fans, and why her death was so disappointing. (Not only was if a disservice to her character, but it was killing the most popular female character in the EU for no good reason. And nobody was there to take her place.)

I'm going to try not to rant in this articles. I want it to be positive, and demonstrate why Mara was so appreciated by male and female fans alike, and why we need more characters like her moving forward.

Any suggestions? Thoughts? Comments?

Blog posts to-do:

1. Why fanfic is great writing practice.

2. How Scoundrels uses continuity and timeframe to its advantage, instead of being bogged down by it.

Tosche Station

My friend lanewinree and I have started a podcast. Why did I let myself get sucked into this? Lol! It is called Tosche Station and focuses on Star Wars and geek culture in general. The first episode has been posted and is available on iTunes for your subscription pleasure. Check us out, will you?

31

Jan. 13th, 2012 | 10:03 am

Yesterday was my 31st birthday and despite being at work, it was a pretty good day. I had Cheesecake Factory at lunch, yummy chocolate cake from Publix, and Kobe Japanese steakhouse for dinner. During dinner I had a 16 ounce drink called the Scorpion and it was delicious. I only had one because I am old and responsible. Then my friend and I went to Publix so she could look at the British food section and we spent ten minutes laughing and taking pictures of all the food. Now I partially understand why all the British tourists spend so long when they go shopping.

Anyway, despite recent events in my life it was a good birthday and I got lots of nice Twitter and Facebook messages that made me feel loved. Except for theemdash. Hee.

Tomorrow I am going to Universal to continue celebrating my birthday with lovely folk such as theemdash, momebie, barned_whispers, and purfeklilangel, among others. I'm sure it will be a lovely time.

It's ginchy's fault

Jan. 10th, 2012 | 12:39 pm

WHY did I start writing Walking the Sky already? Oh right, because I was frustrated with The Way of the Force. And now I want to just go ahead and finish WotF but I need to divide my attention between two fics. Argh! I blame ginchy. :P

In other news, the Star Wars Book Report is doing a fanfic contest and I entered Alliance of Heroes. I'm looking forward to seeing the other entries. SWBR is becoming one of my favorite podcasts. The hosts have good chemistry together, and even thought I disagree with them sometimes, I still always enjoy the show. So, go enter!

In other news, I turn 31 on Thursday. I'm both excited and disturbed by this. But I'm going to Wizarding World to Saturday and Cheesecake Factory and Kobe on my actual birthday. So it's all good.

The Fanfic Post

Nov. 23rd, 2011 | 08:25 pm

I write fanfic. My fics mostly feature a Luke and Mara pairing in the post-RotJ era, although I've written some fics (and my big trilogy) in the Saga era as well. All fanart and covers are courtesy of Iverna.

List of ficsCollapse )
