I started writing in college. I had a great playwriting teacher who said ‘you should write’. It almost hadn’t occurred to me that that was something I could do. I was a theater fanatic when I was in high school and –– Wendy Wasserstein? Caryl Churchill? I could count on one hand the women I knew who wrote plays. Every great American playwright was a man. And so I just sort of were like, ‘they’re men, they’re probably smarter than me, I can’t do it’. And then someone was like ‘Why did you ever think that? You can totally do it.’ But I think if you don’t have examples, it’s very hard to imagine yourself doing it.

A comic from the zine me a friend made called ‘DONT GO HOME!’
kinda like this. pretty much the situation I’m in now. Didnt want to move home cause I know it was the worse thing I could do. Things are kinda hard atm with money but I’m still young, hopefully things will improve! Rather be skint in an amazing city than minted in the dead end town I come from.
Can I say something about destiny? Screw destiny! If this evil thing comes, we’ll fight it, and we’ll keep fightin’ it till we whup it. ‘Cause destiny is just another word for inevitable, and nothing’s inevitable as long as you stand up, look it in the eye, and say “You’re evitable!”
Mid season finale of the walking dead was a great end to the start of a season which has reformed the show. The last two seasons have been mediocre, horribly paced and written drama but when I found out Scott Gimple who wrote two episodes last season, which were also some of the best full stop would become show runner, I knew things would look up. If you tuned out during the last two seasons get back on it as the show is now back on track to be what it set out to be in the pilot, what it is in the books and hopefully, eventually, a show worthy to be on the same network as Mad Men and Breaking Bad.
