    Strong work, and congratulations.

    The content here has been missed (not seeing your thought on the end of Agent Carter was a loss), but real work takes priority.

    Congratulations on having become a professional entertainment writer on the Internet, sufficient that this is now your full time paid occupation. You tell a story of a thus far highly successful hard learning experience outside the university and any academic or training courses or degrees. I know from the history of journalism well before the Internet, and before there were courses in writing or MFAs in universities; — that the way to become a journalist was to be hired by a newspaper and write your brains and your heart out. Russell Banker (familiar as an older host of Masterpiece Theater) in his autobiography tells of what it was to become a successful professional journalist before the 1960s. So there is a long honorable tradition of this going back to the 18th century. I have visited your sites but I am unable to read them from the perspective of the writers as columnists; they are written only from the point of view of characters, content of stories and celebrity kinds of information. I can find yours on Harry Potter and Winter is Coming. This blog (alas not yet paid) is where you shine as a particular voice, so do not give it up — which I can see you are not. I’d like to have some stirring passage from the greatest of American writers. I don’t know enough of them. But I have found these from James Baldwin’s Nobody Knows My Name:

    It is very nearly impossible…to become an educated person in a country so distrustful of the independent mind …
    It is rare indeed that people give. Most people guard and keep.
    They suppose that it is they themselves and what they identify
    with themselves that they are guarding and keeping, whereas
    what they are actually guarding and keeping is their system
    of reality and what they assume themselves to be ….
    One can only face in others what one can face in oneself. On this confrontation depends the measure of our wisdom and compassion …

    You have given and shown that independent mind. By the way, “omit needless words” comes from Strunk’s The Elements of Style.
