  1. Dear Readers, I tend to enjoy reading various articles on writing , the industry, the concepts, et cetera. parallel to craft articles. These topics can be fun or engaging. As some of you know, I have a controlled electronic footprint, meaning, I don't keep old posts. This blog never had fifteen posts and never will cause I don't like ejunk. But, I realize, aside my posts to what I created and create, I need a post to just chit chat if you will. So this post will serve that function, through its comments I will posts various topics concerning writing.

  2. Do you know of a positive book about a child bride, positive defined as a child bride who is happy being married to an adult <child being circa 12 adult being circa or over 30>? The following video made me consider that concept. I am against forced marriage in general, or marriages arranged between strangers, in general. But, I realize I never read or heard of a positive child bride story? WARNING: the following video may disturb you alot in some moments https://twitter.com/dwnews/status/1172717858863878144

  7. black anti immigrant- The following article made me ponder a question, do you know of a anti immigration book, fiction or positioned in a nonfiction, from a black person? https://www.sowetanlive.co.za/news/south-africa/2019-09-08-foreigners-must-go-chant-protesters-as-they-wait-for-mangosuthu-buthelezi/

  10. Diverse voices workshop- from lee daniels- he is working on a black male homofornicating superhero project, so he is looking for all types, no bounds multiverse voices workshop https://shadowandact.com/attention-writers-lee-daniels-announces-workshop-for-diverse-voices in amendment https://shadowandact.com/lee-daniels-says-he-plans-to-helm-the-first-black-gay-superhero-movie-starring-this-viral-sensation
  11. Acting- Lawrence Olivier once said to Dustin Hoffman on the set of The Marathon Man, I paraphrase : "my dear boy, why don't you try acting, it is far much easier" His point is correct. From the 1970s to today, so many actors are using the method, which simply means, instead of acting as someone, try inspiriting them in oneself. The concept is simple, if you live fiscally poor you will be able to act poor. If you live fiscally wealthy, you can not act fiscally poor as well as someone who has chosen to live fiscally poor. I agree to Olivier, the best acting doesn't require a lifestyle change of an actor, the inspiration comes from the soul absent the need to manipulate the body from the actor. What say you?

  13. Gazette Fragments 62/63/64/65/66 Edition 62 excerpt The mouth - a tragedy, enjoy the trailer Edition 63 excerpt Alien the play - This was quite enjoyable, the special effects:) , the video is embedded in the article, but the link is below Edition 64 excerpt Perler - A cosplayer makes outfits using perler beads. as a samus fan I like it https://makezine.com/2019/04/26/constructing-cosplay-armor-from-perler-beads-with-cosplamy/ Edition 65 excerpt Mickey - yes that mickey mouse, love the cover viewed in this excerpt of a new bande. https://www.glenat.com/sites/default/files/liseuse/9782344034972/index.html Edition 66 excerpt Much Ado about nothing - what first comes to your mind? italy, spring, shakespearean speech? This version says it is an all black version but I think the creator missed a trick, that lays that claim false. HE made an all black cast but kept the context, italians side spaniards. … He could had made it an ethiopian Ras, maybe Ras Pero, ala Duke PEter, or Don PEdro and his military retinue can come in for a visit to Agordat, the setting is after the first ethiopian-italo war, which was won by Ethiopia. Then the rest is the same, he missed a trick. https://shadowandact.com/nycs-shakespeare-in-the-park-to-include-all-black-production-of-much-ado-about-nothing-ledby-danielle-brooks
