Since moving to North Carolina several years ago, I have come to appreciate how much of a character the southern scenery really is unto itself. J.Matthew Saunders has come out with a trio of Southern Gothic short stories - Mischief Madness Mourning.
I did a lot of introspection in the last month, as I am wont to do when the year ends, about my writing progress. This year, instead of goals or resolutions, I am holding myself to a mantra instead - "write free".

For a TV show based upon a movie with a giant green Hulk, elaborate dressed gods, a star-spangled costumed superhero, and a bright red and gold robot man, not to mention - Samuel L. Jackson, this has to be the BLANDEST looking cast ever. Excluding the two characters, Coulson and Hill, coming from the Avengers movie and those who are veteran Whedon actors, the main characters are so uninspired, cookie-cutter Hollywood that the casting had to have been done by a computer program from the CW network.
