Are you sad that the season’s already over?

Here are nine ways to prepare for this weekend’s season finale.

1. Watch episodes 1-7 again.

2. Read Bear McCreary’s excellent blog on how he composed different themes for different characters. Then go back and watch episodes 1-7 again while listening for and fully appreciating the musical themes.

“For every one female speaker, there are three male speakers,” Davis said. Of those characters, few have jobs or hold a leadership position. In many cases, based on a predetermined set of criteria, female speaking characters are hypersexualized, heavily stereotyped, and function as “eye candy.” Davis said the media we consume not only inform our worldview, but help shape what we think of as normal manifestations of gender representation, adding that the more hours of television a child watches, the more devastating the outcomes. For male children, more television viewing corresponds to more sexist views. For the average female child, the more hours watched, the lower her self esteem.

What GREAT lists of diverse reads for anyone, period.

Children’s and YA books are about being brave and kind, about learning wisdom and love, about that journey into and through maturity that we all keep starting, and starting again, no matter how old we get. I think that’s why so many adults read YA: we’re never done coming of age.

#WeNeedDiverseBooks summer reading series! If you liked Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo, try Drift by M.K Hutchins because both are high fantasy tales full of intrigue, strong world-building, and action.


Can’t wait to check out Drift!

How do you typically get over writers block/ avoid getting stuck? And do you have any tips for avoiding pointless parts that add nothing to the story?

maggie-stiefvater:

Rightly or wrongly, I assume my subconscious knows the story that I’m trying to tell, so I generally further assume that writer’s block means that I’ve wandered away from that story.

So my solution for writer’s block is to open a new document, name it OUTTAKES. Then I look at my original manuscript and highlight every single bit of novel that I am not thrilled by. Then I cut it and paste it into outtakes, so I can pretend I’ll use it again.

I guess maybe sometimes I use it again.

I had 150,000 words of outtakes for Dream Thieves. It was a novel I really, really wanted to get right.
