As I've said, plot = character + action, but in this case the characters have set in motion a seemingly unstoppable chain of events. I think some things (like the ending of book 4) will change from what I had planned, but that's fine. I am flexible and I want to let the characters do what they want.

So where do I get my ideas? I let the characters tell me.(less)

What to Do With Wonder Woman? Part 2- Putting it Back Together

In part 1 I set all this up by giving you some idea of what I think about this and why I feel that way and maybe why I'm doing this little thought experiment at all. It's not like I have the last word or even any say at all. It's more that I am testing myself by looking at how I would write on a project that has frankly vexed Hollywood for years. Who knows maybe someone will find some scrap of thi Read more of this blog post »

“Democracy is the rule of the best con artist. Let those who have true power rule over those who do not."

-Dibian”

“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Six mistakes mankind keeps making century after century:
Believing that personal gain is made by crushing others;
Worrying about things that cannot be changed or corrected;
Insisting that a thing is impossible because we cannot accomplish it;
Refusing to set aside trivial preferences;
Neglecting development and refinement of the mind;
Attempting to compel others to believe and live as we do.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

“Never forget what you are, for surely the world will not. Make it your strength. Then it can never be your weakness. Armour yourself in it, and it will never be used to hurt you.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“... a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

“Most men would rather deny a hard truth than face it.”
