Samuel Goldwyn thought that no one should write their autobiography until after they were dead. Kajol rather famously said that only self-obsessed people write autobiographies. Mia Farrow said that the only thing she enjoyed writing was her autobiography. JM Coetzee said that all writing is autobiographical. Some unknown writer said that writing an autobiography was akin to using quotes in an essay.

Game of Thrones

Okay.  So. Game of
Thrones.





It’s finally over.  6  amazing seasons and 2 really good ones.





I can understand that a lot of people found the ending to be…less
than satisfying.  I think it would be
really easy to feel short changed by the sudden ending for some of the
characters. 





Why?



Because Game of Thrones is still an epic fantasy and there
are certain tropes that you have to abide by. And one of th...
