Pitching a Web Series

I haven’t been posting as much lately as I should have, but that is because for the last month or so, I’ve been working on a web series. If you follow my reading/writing blog Precarious Reader, you may have read my post Derailed in which I mentioned that I had put aside the novel on which I’d been working for over nine years. I’d had an idea for a web series and I wrote two episodes, and then I got busy with some other stuff for a while and wasn’t sure where to go from there anyway.

Deadpool

Mild spoilers. Nothing serious.

I have been looking forward to this film for a long time (though not as long as Ryan Reynolds has).

I love Deadpool. He was my introduction to comic books and he’s just awesome. His humour, creativity, mercenary skills, R-rating, general quirkiness, and deep seated self-hatred all come together to create the perfect Mary Sue for everyone to love. Any shortcomings are overlooked because he can, has, and will break the fourth wall, making him interesting on a whole other level. He’s like Batman but with less money and more personality.

The Big Short

Disclaimer: The movie I just saw had a lot of swearing in it, so you can rest assured this post will, too.

How To Make Winning Feel Bad – an alternate film title.

Well I’m scared to shit.

I’m twenty-one years old. I still haven’t completed my university degree. My subject of study is freakin’ Creative Writing. I know fuck-all about Wall Street. So keep that in mind when reading what I’m about to say about The Big Short.
