    Songs of Suffering: A Vital Script

    Songs of Suffering: A Vital Script

    I have a degree in theatre. Did you all know that? I feel like I don’t bring it up enough. For the past four years, I’ve studied and analyzed dramatic literature, mostly for a passing grade. I have also written several plays, and belong to the Dramatists’ Guild and New Play Exchange. As a result, I have read bits and pieces of new work, one such piece being Songs of Suffering: A Torture Play by contemporary playwright Nolan Barrett Nightingale. (That is his real name. Trust me, I’ve checked.) Anyway, the more I think on it, the more I realize Songs of Suffering is a piece born out of generational anxiety, and I want to work through that anxiety a little bit by exploring the themes of the script. Be aware, this article may contain spoilers for the piece, so if you are planning on reading it, you can purchase a PDF from Smith Scripts here.

    Fate/ Extra Last Encore

    Fate/ Extra Last Encore

    This Fate is way different than the last one I saw (Fate/ Grand Order Full Demonic Front Babylonia), and according to my boyfriend, it is way different than any of the other ones he's seen. It's still excellent and interesting, of course, full of action. This Fate doesn't slow up for long when it comes to action.

    5 Tips for a Successful NaNaWriMo

    5 Tips for a Successful NaNaWriMo

    Each November, thousands of writers across the globe test their mettle in the time-honored tradition of National Novel Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo, for short). Over the course of a single month, participants go from zero to sixty in an attempt to complete a 50,000-word manuscript before midnight strikes on the final night. If this sounds like a ridiculously hard challenge, that’s because…it sort of is. It’s not meant to be easy. It’s meant to push writers to their limits in order to drive greater creativity than ever before. "Give in to your muse," "let your fingers fly," and all that jazz.

    Support Your Local Comic Shop

    There's a little store tucked in between a Subways and a music shop. It's called Coliseum of Comics, and it's my favorite comic book store. That I've only been to two in total is of no consequence. They have a couple of other sites in Florida, and a pretty nice following on social media. I made my first visit there last year, bored with the slim pickings at the bookstore and intrigued at what lay beyond the dominating worlds of Marvel and DC.

    Two New Teammates

    Two New Teammates

    PERCY POV Sometimes i really hate the gods. yes they're my family, yes i love them, but i swear im going to stab them, god or not. Ugh sorry about that, here let me explain a little. My name is percy, short for Perseus, I had stopped the world from ending several times since i was twelve. I have a lot of titles, like these; 'the son of Poseidon, bane of monsters, slayer of the minotaur, navigator of the labyrinth, owner of the Achilles curse, destroyer of titans, one of the great seven, survivor of Tartarus, defeater of yahda yahda' I think you get the the point, lots of names. Anyways, the reason im so pissed off is that my beach date got completely ruined by the attention seeking gods, and is now making me complain like some preppy girl.

    Knowledge Leads To

    “Come on, it won’t take long,” Narcissa promised, linking her arm through Hermione’s as she swept into the bookstore, the little bell tinkling over their head as the door opened. “The party is tomorrow morning, and I want to get this over with.” Hermione rolled her eyes at her friend’s phrasing, laughing to herself as she tried to picture her at a children’s birthday party.

    Book Hoarder

    Book Hoarder

    It all began when I was in high school. A good friend of mine growing up got anything she wanted; books, electronics, clothes. But the main thing she wanted and always received were books. She could care less for clothes, electronics, social media.... all that she wanted were books.
