The following is for Myriam who wanted me to post various useless pictures for her entertainment.

  1. my aquarium

  3. place in the world you would like to go to just to admire the landscape

  4. animal you find the most majestic

There, are you happy.

That's the way we roll around these parts.


3) New Zealand, yo. There's no excuse for my having not been there since it's right next door, too.







(I'M COMING FOR YOU, [livejournal.com profile] catteo. WAIT FOR ME.)


4) Top 3:



(^ OBVIOUSLY.)





Yeah, so two of these """""aren't real"""" and one is extinct, life is shit, no one cares, etc.


Also, cats, duh, but I already did a post of about 20422 photos on that topic, so.




+ your non-visual prompt: Kalinda Sharma and your thoughts on how she is portrayed in The Good Wife.

A can of worms you're opening there, my good friend.


Lemme preface this with establishing that I love everything Kalinda herself chooses to be. Patronus, life goals, etc. etc.

My feels for the writing for Kalinda are rather not good.

Things started off promising, but it's become increasingly apparent as the show's gone on that the writers just do not know what to do with Kalinda. It was all good until the return of abusive husband Nick, a story which was compelling in theory but alas, it appeared the writers bit off more than they could chew. I wouldn't say it was a mistake to pursue the storyline in itself. (No doubt it pissed off many a viewer that such a STRONG FEMALE CHARACTER WHO DON'T NEED NO MAN would harbour a past of victimhood, but we've established that cis white middle-class feminists are mostly trash.) As far as I'm concerned that backstory is consistent with Kalinda's characterisation. Too bad about the execution (= weird sensationalising of a real world abusive dynamic)!

And then we have Kalinda/sexuality itself. Firstly, a bisexual woman of colour on primetime television = yay. OTOH, the typical over-sexualisation of South Asian women = hmmmm. Compare to Alicia and Diane, who are both portrayed as sexual beings but not defined by their sexuality. Kalinda is the femme fatale who uses sex as a means to an end, and I'm about that, but there's been an Ethnic Sex Kitten vibe around her character from the beginning.

Granted, this doesn't bug me nearly as much as it bugs that I am incapable of giving a fuck about a single one of Kalinda's romantic/sexual relationships with other women. It would seem the show also doesn't particularly give a fuck since whatsername/whatsername #2/whatsername #25 are all barely fleshed out recurring minor players. I understand that Kalinda has complicated and changeable feels about all her girlfriends. I wish I cared. I don't. (And it pains me somewhat to say that I care considerably more about Cary/Kalinda, i.e. the het ship that the writers have developed consistently from the start. Also, Cary's a regular, we care about him.) Now, if they went for Kalinda/other regular female character i.e. Alicia, that would be a different matter.

WHICH BRINGS ME TO: Alicia and Kalinda being forbidden from sharing a screen for the las 92742 years. Apparently, Julianne Margulies is to blame for this, since she was of the mind that women don't continue being close friends with other women who have slept with their husbands.


Alicia and Kalinda's friendship used to be one of the most interesting things on TGW, and was an all-around positive Bechdel phenomenon. And then it was torpedoed because of FUCKING! PETER!!!! FLORRICK!!!!!!!!!!!





... So yeah, those are a few of my beefs with the writing for Kalinda Sharma.

It's especially disappointing since The Good Wife is one of the more progressive shows on air and yet it's descended into the same disregard for women of colour as every other loaf of whitebread on television. (I'm gung ho and all about all the people of colour on the Florrick & Agos team, but why should I throw a party if they hardly ever appear on screen?) Y'all know I'm an Alicia stan, her character journey has been a triumph in every way -- but I can't identify with it. I can identify with Kalinda. So the lack of effort put into Kalinda's development in comparison is... well, business as usual, isn't it. You either hate us or don't care; nothing to see here.

IDK if there'll be a seventh season, but with Archie Panjabi leaving after this one my motivation to watch would be supremely diminished. If they kill her off I might really have to flounce. Prayer circle.

On the bright side, here for an Archie-headlining new show. MY ENTIRE LIFE I'VE WAITED FOR THIS MOMENT~~~~~

To conclude, have this picture of Archie looking fly while Cary/Matt admire in the distance:










In less homicidal news, Jessica prompted: rambles about the creative writing process.

I just survived a post-grad degree in creative writing, which means I've come out of a year of being forced to write creatively to deadlines. You'd think this means I'd have some Wise Words to offer, BUT NO.

So how do I conquer writers' block and get shit done?

... A COMPELLING QUESTION. WE MAY NEVER KNOW.

But here's an ill-defined list of coping methods I employ with big projects:

  • Make shit up as I go along!!! Too much planning can be disadvantageous to inspiration tbh. And on some level, if the story can't "write itself" then maybe it doesn't deserve to be written?? (Don't quote me.)

  • Allow fellow writers to peck your work to death. Obviously. I wouldn't be alive today if not for my seminar group. I was thinking of doing the filtered beta group here on LJ? But here's the thing: the truth is that I am so image-obsessed when it comes to blogging that sharing such personal things as original writing is just ????????. (This would also be why I don't make "personal" posts. lol, what is a personal life, we may never know.) Being put in a group with other writing students and then forced to have your work torn apart was so necessary -- there was no room for ego. Although it's tempting, NEVER BE SATISFIED WITH ALL-POSITIVE FEEDBACK. Constructive criticism = a path. So yeah, if you're not getting enough from your current audience then actively seek out someone who will torture you.

  • Think of the audience. Writing "for myself" doesn't work. It's not enough. This probably comes down to the kind of writer or artist you are and why you're doing this. Me, I'm in it for the fame to entertain. If I'm writing for someone else then it's like I'm riding this tidal wave to shore. I'm not saying I don't put myself into my work (lol, narcissism blog -- do you go here or) but that doesn't make it go all the way. So yeah, if I'm stuck on some writing choice or other, then I'll defer to the closest person who cares -- not just in the "gimme advice" sense but "what would you want to see happen in this story?"

  • Get the right words down in the right order. Yeah, I don't do that thing where I write scenes for the sake of writing them, i.e. to get closer to the end? Every section of writing must be an event. If my own prose isn't inspiring me, then what's the point?

  • Write out of order. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I WILL NEVER BE A BIG NAME MULTI-CHAPTER FANFICTION QUEEN. I just don't think linearly. I write whatever part of the story I feel like at any given time and then go back and fix continuity later.

  • Think in emotions. Like I said making shit up along the way is how I roll, but that's generally regarding PLOT. (lol, what is a plot, we may never know, etc. etc.) But I always know what the emotional beats are going to be. And if I'm blocked then it's usually because whatever bit I'm writing isn't arousing the right degree of FEELS. MAKE IT SO THAT THERE ARE FEELS.

  • DIALOGUE IS LIFE. The one area safe from blockage for me (mainly due to the screenwriting classes). Usually I'll picture various attractive actors delivering my lines -- that's pretty helpful, too.



SO. WHO KNOWS IF THE ABOVE MAKES ANY SENSE OR HAS A USE. In any case I hope you have enjoyed this peek into my haphazard and inexplicable brane.

oh hello this post was made for me, am grateful, now for the feels.

Re TGW: yeah, this is why I don't watch TV... I have told people, in all seriousness, that BtVS ruined me for episodic television, and it seems to have held true: not wanting to invest time and imagination in characters to see them treated shabbily later on because of who knows what complications. (Of course that logic should not, in theory, apply to shows whose run is over, or whose gone-to-shit point is known, and I don't watch them either. So, shrug, Hollywood sucks.)

ok now for the actual life writing advice.

Make shit up as I go along!!! Too much planning can be disadvantageous to inspiration tbh. And on some level, if the story can't "write itself" then maybe it doesn't deserve to be written??

which I will pair with

Write out of order. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I WILL NEVER BE A BIG NAME MULTI-CHAPTER FANFICTION QUEEN. I just don't think linearly. I write whatever part of the story I feel like at any given time and then go back and fix continuity later.

because I think these two go together, because committing to a plan makes it harder to write scenes that don't fit with the plan later.

I think getting into romance writing threw me off (more on that in a second) w/r/t this particular point, because in that genre there is a very firm expected structure for plot. Experiment with character as you wish, but boy must meet girl (there is slight progressivity here in the last few years, probably more since I was actively involved), there must be something separating the lovers, there must be a resolution, etc. The novel I worked on from 2007 to 2010 or so went through several drafts, and the bugaboo was my having to hit those notes at certain times .

(Note: I'm not knocking the structure, or the readers who prefer the structure. I know and admire women who write very well to the structure and find ways to play with it. But at that time, the structure got me mired, when I think being free of it would have allowed me to do more with those particular characters. I hope to do more with them anyway at some point.)

Being put in a group with other writing students and then forced to have your work torn apart was so necessary -- there was no room for ego.

HAHAHAHA with your misanthropic/misandrist intelligence you have once again put your finger on the exact problem. I have a long history of wilting like a fragilie flower in the face of criticism -- I'm getting better at it, but still.

(I exceeded the LJ comment character limit with this bullshit)

To get back to my GRW experience for a second (this is ALL ABOUT ME, etc. etc.) -- I was excited to go and would leave meetings totally on a high, so excited to be in the presence of women who talked and thought seriously about writing. But the next step would have been to assemble that kind of demanding, rewarding group, and... it didn't happen. I was involved in an online group for a bit, and tried giving back the feedback, but it wasn't particularly satisfying. I entered contests and the last round of feedback I got back was dispiriting -- an air of, "I am baffled to the point of disgust by your work." And then I basically shut down until I discovered Lauren, not to put too fine a point on it.

At one point (with the previous novel) I invited blog readers to come be my beta readers, and a friend of mine actually did contribute some concrete and useful criticism, but she and I have since drifted apart (she's gotten more religious, I less; we both have two kids apiece; etc.).

(Oh and don't even mention the time I gave a chapter to the guy I was dating at the time -- not my husband -- saying, "If you like it, I'll give you more; if you don't, we never have to speak of it again." Not only was it never mentioned again, he dumped me a month later. HAHAHA THE UNIVERSE JUSTLY PUNISHED ME FOR MY COMPLETE LACK OF JUDGMENT. 2003 was a bad year.)

point is, I have had a hard time finding a place with people who I trust to support me and yet I also trust to look at my work. the other LJ is the closest I've come so far, and you can rightly criticize that as being too much of a lovefest.

ugh, just thinking about all this makes me nauseous. writing is for the strong and I am weak.

And if I'm blocked then it's usually because whatever bit I'm writing isn't arousing the right degree of FEELS. MAKE IT SO THAT THERE ARE FEELS.

oh, absolutely.

DIALOGUE IS LIFE. The one area safe from blockage for me (mainly due to the screenwriting classes). Usually I'll picture various attractive actors delivering my lines -- that's pretty helpful, too.

I do this all the time -- if I can't picture my characters in my head, talking, it's much harder to write. frequently I will "cast" actors as characters (which means things end up pretty lookist in my head; I need to fight that).

THIS HAS BEEN A RAMBLE. Older daughter is sick and younger daughter needs to be at a birthday party in 45 minutes, my life is one series of procrastinations, anyway, thank you.

THE FUCK. I hope this dude's fallen into a garbage dispenser since then!

FWIW ain't nothing wrong with what you have now on LJ. The only thing is that it's all virtual and I find that with big projects especially, real life one-on-one interaction gets shit done more effectively. (That and you can't depend on virtual people to be there when you want them to be.)

Nay, writing is neither for the strong nor the weak but for those who hate both themselves and the world.

frequently I will "cast" actors as characters (which means things end up pretty lookist in my head; I need to fight that).

Hey, WHATEVER WORKS. It's not like you're Lions Gate Entertainment whitewashing the entire cast of The Hunger Games.

Howdy.

What's depressing is that Kalinda wouldn't even make my top five list of characters fucked over by TPTB. (TARA MACLAY, OTOH...)

I SIMPLY DID NOT KNOW YOU WERE SECRETLY A FORMER ROMANCE NOVELIST. You are a braver soul than I. But if the formula doesn't work for you then it doesn't work and you have to do you.

YANA on wilting like a fragile flower, etc. (lol, the ego of artists, &c. &c..). The thing is to find a beta you can ~trust to CARE about you being your best. Godspeed.

Interesting the writing part. I can relate to some things. (Like the story has to write itself, but I have a thing for multi-chaptered stories ... with micro-chapters. I'm a damn cheater)

Also Kalinda! I think that the difficult, for the writers, is that they created this quintessential badass-I can do everything-I'm better than you woman, so it gets difficult to write about her. You can overdo everything in a bit, but you don't want that she loses her badass appeal. It's hard, I think, so maybe there's that. But yeah, things go bad after the ex-husband shows up. (I wanted to hit him with something all the time. So annoying)


IDK if there'll be a seventh season, but with Archie Panjabi leaving after this one my motivation to watch would be supremely diminished. If they kill her off I might really have to flounce. Prayer circle.


But Kalinda can't die. It's canon. She just can't.

YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT YOUR MULTI-CHAPTERED WORK! You multi-chaptered folk are more disciplined souls than I.

I feel like Kalinda is the kind of character who deserves a show entirely about her tbh. That she's relegated to supporting character territory serving other people's stories does her no favours in the long run.

But Kalinda can't die. It's canon. She just can't.

WOULD THAT I HAD YOUR FAITH.

Everything is improved with a touch of pink IMO.

Dude I had no idea you had an aquarium. Are your fish ever in danger of getting eaten by the cat?

YOUR WRITING ADVICE IS INTERESTING! I agree with some and not others? Though, it's less I don't agree and more "eh that doesn't work for me" probably because we have different writing styles. For example I SUCK AT DIALOGUE. Dialogue is the worst, it's always the hardest thing for me and half the time I wish I didn't need dialogue in a piece at all. Also letting people constructively TEAR APART YOUR WORK is the best advice, no argument there--my beta is really good at telling me when something sucks or doesn't make sense--my problem is just, I never know when something is good enough to be posted. I always feel like there's SOMETHING to be fixed, or something more than can be added and it trips me up for days (obvs I am talking fanfic here though. I imagine you were doing original fic for creative writing classes?).

Get the right words down in the right order. Yeah, I don't do that thing where I write scenes for the sake of writing them, i.e. to get closer to the end? Every section of writing must be an event. If my own prose isn't inspiring me, then what's the point?

Heh, I am actually curious what you mean by this and if you can expand on it more? Scenes for the sake of getting closer to the end?

Write out of order. THIS IS EXACTLY WHY I WILL NEVER BE A BIG NAME MULTI-CHAPTER FANFICTION QUEEN. I just don't think linearly. I write whatever part of the story I feel like at any given time and then go back and fix continuity later.

LMAO I CAN NEVER WRITE IN ORDER. NEVER EVER. I AM GLAD IT'S NOT JUST ME. Even my long, 100k plus fic were written out of order to some extent. Like I can technically do a multi-chapter story, but only if i release it all at once. The whole 1 chapter an update thing, NO WAY. I am constantly fixing continuity so I can't actually do a mutli-chapter story without having that option to fix it later. And I can't even write in order consistently, like, not just doing scenes out of order but when I write, I tend to go full steam ahead and skip from sentence to sentence or paragraph to paragraph or so it's very stream of consciousness.

But oh god, post grad degree for creating writing!! That's amazing. And a bit terrifying. I am actually pretty curious about your original work tbh.

Are your fish ever in danger of getting eaten by the cat?

Yes.

Let's leave it there.

(I was doing original work for the class, indeed. Which was a whole different vibe for me personally since it was all BIG projects whereas I almost never do long!fic.)

HOW CAN ONE H8 DIALOGUE. I DID NOT KNOW THAT WAS EVEN POSSIBLE.

I FEEL DATZ ABOUT THE PERFECTIONISM but I'd imagine if/when even your most hardcore beta can't find any more faults it's good to go? :D

re: point four, I just mean that I'm the sort of writer who's insanely hung up on the arrangement of words themselves (HENCE WHY PLOTS ARE NOT NEEDED IN MY BAR). My process is not "make story events happen --> edit prose" but rather "obsess over the placement of each character a la poetry and if something ACTUALLY HAPPENS in what I'm writing then what a surprising bonus".

WE ARE ONE ON ALL THINGS LINEARITY. The only way I'd EVER do multi-chapter fic is by writing the whole thing then spreading out the updates. (ALSO, NO ONE NEEDS MORE UNFINISHED WIPS IN THIS WASTED WORLD.)

I am actually pretty curious about your original work tbh.

Poor little fish.

OH I DON'T HATE READING DIALOGUE. DIALOGUE IS GREAT. But I loath writing it. Loath. I'm so bad at figuring out how much action to frame the dialogue with and how much to let it stand on it's own and I never really trust my ability to mimic speech patterns, it's all things I'm baaad at.

I FEEL DATZ ABOUT THE PERFECTIONISM but I'd imagine if/when even your most hardcore beta can't find any more faults it's good to go? :D

THIS IS WHAT I TELL MYSELF and it helps some of the time but I still have moments of going back to an old fic and saying OH NO THAT WAS TERRIBLE. I SHOULD HAVE CUT THAT. I COULD HAVE ADDED MORE TO THIS OH NO.

I HOPE THE MOOD STRIKES. I am just curious what kind of original fic you write, tbh like, genre, plots. I imagine it's all terribly depressing but maybe I'm wrong.

Your creative writing stuff is VERY INTERESTING. I am kind of in awe of people who have a plan when they sit down and write. I basically start writing and hope like mad that there will turn out to be some sort of cohesion at the end. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. WHY WOULD ANYONE TORTURE US ALL WITH MORE WIPs?!

YES THIS POST !!
1.
a) FINALLY ! Your aquarium looks nice with the pink light and the weird waterfall. Do you only have two fish or did the other ones get eaten by your cat ?

b) P E R F E C T. If you really get a motorcycle like this one day, I'll get you this

c) Pretty pretty pretty pretty ! New Zealand is too far awayfor me (but who know maybe one day, when i have a lot of time and money ^^)

d) Can't argue with those choices. (except maybe the cat part)

This pic post made me really happy ! :D

2. KALINDA IS MY BABY FOREVER AND EVER!
Agreed 100% with everything you said. You had to talk about Nick tho, didn't you ?

Alicia and Kalinda's friendship used to be one of the most interesting things on TGW, and was an all-around positive Bechdel phenomenon. And then it was torpedoed because of FUCKING! PETER!!!! FLORRICK!!!!!!!!!!!
We are all waiting for a Alicia/Kalinda/screentimetogether comeback we know will never happen :'(
RIP this

PETER FLORRICK... you know how i feel. go hide in a corner and die!

Granted, this doesn't bug me nearly as much as it bugs that I am incapable of giving a fuck about a single one of Kalinda's romantic/sexual relationships with other women. It would seem the show also doesn't particularly give a fuck since whatsername/whatsername #2/whatsername #25 are all barely fleshed out recurring minor players.
You know it's weird because i thought i cared about Kalinda's girlfriends more than i actually do. The thing is that Kalinda is someone who chooses the people she surrounds herself with very carefully. And she certainly chooses her girlfriends carefully too, even if it's just a casual thing. But the show isn't interested in meaningful r/ships for Kalinda it's all just about sex anyway. Nothing else to see here. smh.
I dream of a Kalinda spin off some nights...

IDK if there'll be a seventh season, but with Archie Panjabi leaving after this one my motivation to watch would be supremely diminished. If they kill her off I might really have to flounce. Prayer circle.
D': PRAYER CIRCLE. I WOULDN'T SURVIVE. she would be reuinited with her one true bff aka Will, that's something right?

Archie looks flawless, as always !

Your writing advice is great bro!
I'll keep it for the day i chose to write something big or anything at all really. If that day ever comes ^^

a) I'm sure there are more, but either they were hiding at the time or Pixie got them. Happens.
b) GASP. *and you cry and your tears are the blood of the innocents*
d) lol, you know you love cats.

2. I HAD TO TALK ABOUT NICK. HE IS WHERE IT ALL WENT WRONG.

Your nostalgic Alicia/Kalinda bar drinking flashbacks are not needed.

PETER FLORRICK... you know how i feel. go hide in a corner and die!

STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THAT TRASH IS STILL ALIVE AND WILL IS DEAD. (Not that Will wasn't also trash... but he was MY trash, lol.)

I WEEP FOR THE KALINDA SPIN-OFF THAT WILL NEVER BE. At least Archie's got her own headliner so I can maybe watch that and pretend it's Kalinda....................................

she would be reuinited with her one true bff aka Will, that's something right?

DON'T

You should write a monster epic and post it IMO.
