This week we’re counting down the minutes until Star Wars and enjoying everything John Boyega is doing. In news, we have big updates about Daniel Holtzclaw, affirmative action, and a movie that surprised us with a trailer release last night.
Happy Friday, unicorns. Hope you’re not eating a Chipotle burrito while reading this.
Ten Things Not To Say To a Writer is a trending hashtag on Twitter at the moment. A lot of what was said really struck a chord with me. I mean, I know I am not some mega-successful author like J.K. Rowling (not yet, anyway), but I am a writer and still get ridiculous comments.
