I started out with something that pissed me off: DC Comics turning Starfire and Catwoman, two of their stronger female protagonists, into sluts, to put it charitably. They were so totally reduced to sex objects, I wanted to throw rocks.
So I threw angry language at them instead.
Ironically, in one month, it has become the most read post on this entire blog, beating out Disasters to Marvel at, which is a year old.
Also, I decided to get back to creative writing, creating more surveys that my characters have filled out. You know, the older online essays that used to be sort of fun. I had one for the German spy Manana Shushurin, and another for the Secret Service agent and nerd, Wilhelmina Goldberg, as well as the lethal weapon, Irish Interpol Agent Maureen McGrail.
I didn't have all that many music blogs this month. I threw up some John Williams marches, and Tom Smith taking his revenge on technology and Rob Granito
A false report on gay marriage in the military made me start an irate blog .... then I wanted a better footnote, discovered that the story I based my indignation on was bogus, and I was stuck with a blog I had to rewrite, very, very fast.
I put in another blog on writing. This time it was a matter of "how to exposition like crazy" -- when you have to dump a graduate paper's worth of information into one novel.
Also, I had a little conversation on how to write for disaster. It's mostly how to write characters who are supposed to be terrified, when you yourself have never been quite that scared -- and, making certain that your character's fear is appropriate both to the situation, and the person.
And, there was my self-defense review for the month -- with my my self defense columns for October. It had to do a lot with Occupy Wall Street, self defense for women, and self defense against the zombie apocalypse .... I'm serious about the zombie apocalypse part.
Catholic conspiracies 3. This was almost a replacement for It was inspired after I saw a lot of idiots try to pin Occupy Wall Street on "crypto-Jewish Jesuit fascists founded by the Illuminati."
I want my Vatican ninjas.
