You’re Invited

This Week In Writing, we prepare for NaNoWriMo with a special invitation, but first, we talk about She-Hulk!

You’re Invited
"She-Hulk" by Justin Cox and Midjourney

She-Hulk is the latest Marvel television show to land on Disney+. It features Jennifer Walters, aka She-Hulk, aka Bruce Banner’s cousin, aka Attorney at Law. The show does something very unique and reminds us that entertainment is for fun — it’s not something to be endlessly dissected and get upset over.

As writers, our work won’t always land with everyone — that’s ok! I loved She-Hulkfor the same reasons some people probably disliked it. But I applaud the writers for exploring a theme they likely knew would upset a large swath of “fans.”

Have you ever broken the fourth wall with your writing? What about exploring themes contrary to the expected? Hit reply and let’s talk. Or… well, keep reading for another option!

You’re Invited To Join The Writing Cooperative Discord!

NaNoWriMo is coming and I know many of you will take on the arduous challenge of 50k words in 30 days. To provide encouragement and support, I’m launching The Writing Cooperative Discord server for everyone!

The Discord server includes channels to chat with fellow writers (like discussing this week’s email above), request editing feedback, and talk about your NaNoWriMo progress. All of this is free and open to the public! Whatever you write, you’re invited!

Join the Discord server and start chatting today!
