General, Writing

all about fan fiction & why you shouldn’t be scared of it.

fanfiction

Today i was scrolling through twitter & i saw that on NaNoWriMo’s twitter (short for National Novel Writing Month) they were going to be talking all about fanfic on their Facebook page today. I thought “Great! Maybe i can learn a thing or two!” (myself being a fanfic writer). As I scrolled through the comments on the post, I smiled at how many people are actually so passionate about fanfic. Some people have a love for writing that started with a simple basic fanfic story that they made because they were passionate about the fandom it was about. So, naturally, i put my contribution to the post:

“Live Long and Prosper.” RIP Leonard Nimoy

Leonard Nimoy has passed away today. For those of you who aren’t super nerds like me, Leonard Nimoy played one of the original Spocks on the TV show Star Trek. When most people say Spock nowadays, they think of Zachary Quinto, who plays the new Spock in the latest movies, but Leonard Nimoy was the actor who brought the character Spock to life.

I had make a small remembrance post because Leonard Nimoy is a significant figure in the Science Fiction community, and now it will never be the same without him here anymore.

Live Long and Prosper, Mr. Spcok. You will be missed.

The Imitation Game

hey everyone! i hope your all doing awesome and had a lovely weekend/Valentine’s Day/Singles Awareness Day! for the weekend since it was a long one here in the U.S i went to my boyfriends. we took a bus out of Boston at 5:00 but didn’t get to Connecticut until about 8:00 because it was rush hour when we left Boston. stupid idea on our part, but it was the bus that worked the best for us. we had a pretty cute weekend. On Saturday in the morning his mother and I went to a combat workout because he had to do a bit of work in the morning, then him & I visited a couple of his friends and we went to dinner at a local place. (we were supposed to do Habachi but it started snowing like crazy so we had to scratch that…)

When we came back from dinner we watched two movies: Nights in Rodanthe (which is not the film i’m gonna be reviewing) and then we went into my room and watched The Imitation Game, which was just such a phenomenal movie that i’m gonna bore you all and talk about it.

Disclaimer: I do not claim for any of my reviews to be spoiler free. If you do not want spoilers I suggest you do not read my reviews, because as much as I try to be spoiler free, sometimes I can’t help it. In other words, read at your own risk and don’t come crying to me if you read a spoiler.
