It’s really come to my attention how far behind I am. I love comic books and television but my past major didn’t really give me the time to delve much into them. So now that I’m interested in creating a career out of my interests I have to get back on the saddle and read and keep up to date. BUT THERE’S SO MUCH TO LEARN AND DO.
I think right now I’m going to concentrate on reading All Star Superman, X-Men: Generation Hope, and the Marvel + Crossgen comics coming out. I’ve read the entire Buffy the Vampire Slayer Season 8 series and I was initially very pleased by it but coming to the end I was disappointed. The last issue, by far, was the best and I’m glad Whedon has decided to go back to his roots.
Speaking of Whedon he’s one of the reasons why I decided to do this. Him and Neil Gaiman do exactly what I want to do- they write for television, books and comic books. That’s a great life to get paid for writing.
But besides comics I’m watching Community, Modern Family, 30 Rock, United States of Tara and Archer.There are some comedy shows on tv right now. I want to find some drama television I’ll be interested in, although I think UST fits that role. I’m going to write a review as soon as I finish watching it, but so far this is a secret gem I’m glad I found on television!
And I love scifi/fantasy tv too but I haven’t found any on yet that I’m interested in. Haven I enjoy but I’m not attached to the characters. Fringe has currently gone down hill for me and those are the only two that showed much potential. I’m considering starting to watch Dr. Who (only because of Neil Gaiman’s involvement) but I’d have to begin from the beginning and I already have a lot of series I’m trying to keep up with.
There’s a lot to do. I’m not going to go for fellowships, etc right now. Not until later. Right now I’m taking writing classes because I really need to get better. There’s a lot to do and very little time!!!
