Diversity in Fiction

Diversity in fiction is important, but it shouldn’t be ‘forced’ or for diversity’s sake. One of the many things I love about Black Panther is that it doesn’t go out of its way to tell you that it’s about African people. It simply shows its pride for those of African descent. It uses good storytelling, strong character development, captivating visual scenery and effects, and sells itself on its own

Zarina Macha liked an answer about Song of Susannah:
Song of Susannah by Stephen King
I feel like Wolves may have been the weakest, but it seems to be an unpopular opinion. It just seemed like there wasn't much going on for such a long book. Maybe it was because of the slow speed of Wolves that made me enjoy Song's action oriented flo See Anshul’s answer.

Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King
"This book is a major disappointment and disaster.

Plot: Basically, nothing happens. People just talk and talk and talk. And the only meaningful action that could be described as "moving the plot forward" is in the last 100 pages of the book. Major chu" Read more of this review »
Wolves of the Calla by Stephen King
"It is as though Stephen King:
1. Took me out to an arid, deserted sepia-toned no-place
2. Lit a sputtering campfire that quickly faded to embers
3. Handcuffed me
4. Sat me down Indian-style across from him
5. Proceeded to narrate to me in a hoarse, bored " Read more of this review »

“Writing isn't about making money, getting famous, getting dates, getting laid, or making friends. In the end, it's about enriching the lives of those who will read your work, and enriching your own life, as well. It's about getting up, getting well, and getting over. Getting happy, okay? Getting happy.”
