Prayers go on, sometimes out of sight, in high school football
"On this week's religion roundup, prayers go on, sometimes out of sight in high school football. In Jesus name, amen. Let's go. Pregame prayers have become a focal point after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled a Washington state public school coach how to write to prey on the football field. Since then, some speculated there would be more game day prayers. Confidence endurance. A recent AP North Pole shows a majority of American adults approve of the decision. In Michigan, football coaches like west bloomfield's Justin ivy found ways to make it voluntary. It was never a situation where we made anybody come and do it. We just did it. AP sports writer Larry lage says there was some pressure to increase the amount of prayer at games. One coach just outside of Detroit says several people in the community pushed him to use his platform and constitutional right to pray publicly, but Dearborn fordson high school coach fuad Saban says he chose to keep prayers behind closed doors to avoid potential anti Islamic jeers. I actually was flooded by calls and they were hoping that I would take advantage of the ruling and we would do our actual prayer out on the field. So but that's not the way we've operated forts and senior whiteout Hassan Chennai says his teammate support keeping their prayers in the locker room and away from the public. I think it's better private because I don't, you know, we don't know what everybody wants, but we're a team and we all agreed to this to the prayer and we have no problem with it. But we don't want to do it publicly because we don't know if people are comfortable with know what their opinions are about it. We just don't want anything, you know, any conflict with anybody else. High school junior Chris writes as the prayer strengthened the team's Bond. And it's okay to practice whatever religion you may practice when we all accept each other. It's kind of making it easier for us to be cohesive as a team. I'm Walter ratliff.
Chump Change: A Little Know Rags to Riches Movie That's Worth a Watch
"Chump change, not that I'm promoting a movie, I was in. It's in one of those movies you can't find too readily somewhere, you probably have to order it. I'm not telling you to order it, but it is a funny, it's a red to rich's comedy. Based on the director and star and writer, Steve burrows, who it's his actual experiences while writing the screenplay in Los Angeles, and he decides the only way to come back as an actor is to fake his own death, then make a glorious return. But before that idea pans out, this happened in real life. He goes on wheel of fortune, the game show. And wrote about it. He wrote a screenplay by being on wheel of fortune. And then Merv Griffin heard about the screenplay, which was making the rounds and merv of course on world of fortune. He was like, you can't write about wheel of fortune. I'm suing you. Or a cease and desist. And that got big play around Hollywood circles. Merv Griffin's suing screenwriter for using wheel of fortune story. And because of the heat on that, people then want it to hire Steve burrows to write a script. It's so sick this town. And because Hollywood is Hollywood, Steve burrows became a hot ticket as an up and coming screenwriter. A studio hired him to write a script about what happened. He writes the script and he's championed by myself and Fred Willard as his agent and manager. Or manager and agent respectfully. And we give him incessant notes on how to write it better, like as if we know, and Steve burrows let us improvise a bit his writing was great, but he let us go off of page a little bit and allow me to say some crazy shit. He's a try, try, let's see if it works. And at one point in one of my scenes, I gave him notes on his latest script revision, and I said something dumb like, I don't know, it feels like there's too much typing in this spot. Real stupid shit. But he loved it. After all the notes he got, he couldn't sell the script, you know what he does. He goes back to the original script that nobody wanted, the first script, the studio saw, and then they go, now you got it. This is exactly the way the script's supposed to be. This is like Hollywood is. It's insane. Okay? This is what happens. So it's a true story, by the way, this really happened to him. And it really gives you an insider's perspective of stardom and show business. Struggling actor leaves Hollywood and returns to his hometown in Wisconsin where he meets a girl, Tracy lords, and he regales it with his tales of his shell business, highs and lows, and boy, do I know that well?
Kreider strikes twice, caps Rangers' comeback win over Kings

Writers scored the go ahead goal near the midway point of the period and he later added an empty netter in the final seconds to ice it, Igor sterk and made 35 saves.

A Deep Dive Into Klaus Schwab and the WEF With Larry Taunton
"Back, I'm talking to Larry Taunton, whom you may find at Larry Alex Taunton dot com, I recommend that you go to Larry Alex Taunton dot com. So let's continue the conversation. You've done a deep dive into Klaus Schwab and the World Economic Forum. Yeah, let me tell you a little bit about how we got or how they got where they are. This all really began with an academic white paper that was circulated in 1970 called the predicament of mankind. Now, as a writer, you like myself would read this and say, this needed a better editor. It's written by somebody of a scientific predisposition who doesn't really have any real skills as a writer. It's full of typos and it's just not it's somewhat repetitive, but it's only 31 pages. And in the predicament of mankind, this group, which is called the club of Rome, the club of Rome, which is oddly located in Zürich, Switzerland is a think tank, thank kato or brookings institute, but these are individuals who said, look, global leaders are too focused on getting reelected in the tyranny of the urgent. And they're not focusing on global problems. And so we suggest in the predicament of mankind in this white paper, we suggest that there be a kind of new think tank that's an action committee. And that this action committee focus on some of the world problems.
Sam Bankman-Fried, Now the Greatest Fraudster in American History
"Victor Davis Hanson, one of the most important writers of our time, an important piece in the great American greatness on the great American greatness website. About bankman Sam bankman fried. I never heard of until the Ponzi style scheme of what is it $32 billion how much? I think it's 36, but 36 billion. So is this like the biggest ripoff monetarily speaking in American history? Bankman freed is merely one in a long line of Bay Area social justice hypocrites and frauds. They share in common loud but cynical left wing politics.
Melinda Gates, Amal Clooney and Michelle Obama Have Joined Forces
"Also a writer, they talked to none of you are going to remember this, but you should. You should look her up. Selma diamond. You know, back in the day, there were ten sitcoms. And each sitcom had ten writers on the show. That's a hundred writers. Only one was female, and that was Selma diamond. Could you imagine the story she had to tell? She became a prolific comedy writer, worked on a lot of shows and these shows normally only had men, tough fall, broad, New York City, Jewish chip, she didn't give a fuck. I just wish the women today could sit down and watch a couple of hours of Selma diamond talking about what it took to make it in the world. But nowadays you can watch Amal Clooney and Melinda Gates and Michelle Obama talking about their problems. I put up an I put up an Instagram with these three rules, their picture saying, please remind me not to watch this. They've all announced a collaboration between their foundations to advance gender equality and get this to end child marriage, I didn't even know we had a huge problem with child marriage. Is that a new thing? Is this the next thing? Is that going to be a new ribbon? What's that gonna be colored? Magenta? Child marriage, what is this all about? You can introduce all these new things to me. I know these three women don't care about the price of gasoline, how much groceries cost and living paycheck to paycheck has never ever happened in their lives. So they got bigger issues to tackle. I mean, Melinda was married to Bill Gates, one of the wealthiest men ever in the world. Also a man who knew of Jeffrey Epstein's predilection for underage girls and still made him a best friend. Also a man who has his hand in vaccinations and is treated like some kind of king when he goes to the G four summit or other smarty art functions. Why is Bill Gates treated like he's an elected official? It's a fucking computer nerd. With money. So listen, ladies, pay attention to what these women have to say. Especially Melinda Gates. Here's what she said. About, what is the issue? Of our lifetime. She said, my mom always told me, set your agenda or someone else will. A bullshit, your mother didn't use that expression. No one talked about agendas in the fucking 50s and 60s. It's a lie. She never said that. Set your agenda. That wasn't an expression. It just wasn't. It's like saying nowadays, oh, you gotta go to the link and cut and paste the link and we understand that today. one would have understood that in the 60s. No one heard set your own agenda. She's full of shit. And she said, and the agenda of our lifetime is making sure women can take their full power in society. Women have these unpaid burdens. Take our children, of our elderly parents, but what I want to say to women is you need to take care of yourselves first. Once you do that, then you can fully take care of others. But if we name the unpaid labor that we do, society can help us. And if good policies are put in place, it makes our jobs easier. Everybody has agency. Hate that expression. Everybody has agency, but being able to use our full agency to be fully in our female power isn't always possible. But if you start and empower someone else and they're going to empower everybody around them and you'll see what happens. I don't know where to start. I don't know where to start. I love our female power. Imagine if I began a speech by talking about our male power, I'd be booed off the stage and pelted with old bread and eggs. Such a double standard of bullshit and then what she's saying is something I haven't ever seen with the women who raised me, maybe you did, did you? I don't think you did. I didn't, did you? My sister rosalie takes care of all of us or two sons, her husband, her fucking brother who's on his ass and not knowing what the fuck's what two grandkids or 6 dogs and anybody else who wants help or attention. I've never heard her say, um, I can't do anything until I take care of myself first. But rather, the companies coming over in 15 minutes, what can I do? Didn't you hear me? I'm taking care of myself. I'll be down when I'm down. Don't imagine my mother when I was ten years old or so. Mom, you didn't pack a cold lunch. And I got no money for a hot lunch. What do I do? My father takes me, she's like, your mother is taking care of a
When Will Ryan Gosling Marry Eva Mendes?
"These two are very famous. Famously private, they've never revealed whether they're married or not. I don't get this kind of horse shit. What's the big deal? But the other day, Ava Mendes, who's now 48, went to Instagram, and I've been on Instagram. All she does is post pictures of clothes she wore for a certain event. She doesn't answer anybody's not that I wrote her. There's no way the writer back. She just posts pictures of clothes she wears. It's really like, are you in prison? What's going on? So she showed off a tattoo that might offer a clue about their relationship. It's in her inner wrist and it spells out de Gosling. DE Gosling. So in the Hispanic culture, married women often add their husbands last name to their own using deep, DE, which means of, you know, so Mendez might go by Eva Mendes de Gosling after marrying him. Who knows? We don't know. It's not the first time she's flashed this particular tattoo. She did it two years ago. Dylan September again. But it's very prominent in his most recent post. These two have been together since 2011. They met on the movie the place beyond the pines, good movie, really good movie.
Do Republicans Need to Get Creative With Ballot Drop Boxes?
"Do you think that just from a characteristic standpoint, do you think that Republicans are willing to embrace ballot harvesting as a new strategy? I think there's definitely going to be hesitancy. What I've seen just on the world of Twitter, which we all know isn't necessarily reflective of overall real life. Since last week, there's been a lot more openness to it overall. There's been a lot of misunderstandings of what it is. And so I think on the conservative side, they have to know that we can be successful in it. And one of my writers at red state, Scott counsel, I know he's been on your show a lot. He even came up with this modified program before ballot harvesting was legal in California with a stamp program where they gave a stamp to someone and watched them put it in their mailbox, whoever had an absentee ballot at their home at that time. And they flipped a Democrat plus 13 district in the central valley using that tactic. There's different targeting and voter modeling things that they used as well. But just to conservatives to know that if you're doing this the right way with the right data with the right consultants and with a good plan, that it is a viable strategy, not just for conservative districts, but within rural areas and with Democrat districts.
Doug Reflects on the Art of Songwriting
"Talk for a few minutes about some of the and I think this will be a fun thing here. Some of the country music and really I mean, we're not talking specifically country. And because the country is going to be a predominance, of course, for the day. But I got to know, you know, the pop writers. I got to know the, you know, the ones who are in urban music, rap, classical. It all affected them because it was this new way. And it's not a bad thing. You said something earlier. One of my goals was is that we were all thinking that the pie was only 8 inches wide. And the reality was, I believe that the pie is still to this day believe that the park could be 30 inches wide. And it expanded the pond. Nobody was leaving behind. You were getting more out of it. You know, so it was really amazing to be Paul Williams, aloe black. You know, these are, you know, outside of that you'd mentioned Barbra Streisand, one of her most favorite famous songs, Paul Williams wrote. That's right. Evergreen. That's right. Which if you ever hear him talking about, you know, of course he likes to talk about the rainbow connection with Kermit. But he makes it, but these are things that touch our lives. But the twist of the song and the turn of a verse. You know, the Tim McGraw song, Rodney and a truck that the bank lets me borrow from month to month. I mean, think about that. How many times do you think about your truck payment being the bank lets me borrow from month to month? That's real. Or one of my dear Friends, yours as well. It used to be president of the national songwriter association, Lee Thomas. Miller. Who riding with Chris Stapleton. You know, I've got a problem. In his song, but it ain't about what you think. You know, I drank because I'm lonely, and I'm lonely because I drink.
Doug Is Joined by Old Friend Bart Herbison to Discuss Songwriting
"Made a comment just a minute ago that I think a lot of people, if they're listening to this, listen to fine a little bit of terms here because I think you said something was pretty interesting, but I think it's still true today, although you and I can sort of laugh and joke at the insider as part of how many artists actually write songs. But I've always used this example. George strike being the king of country music, you know, the undisputed everybody loves George stripe. But George Strait has 60 number one songs of which he wrote none. Neither did Elvis. I mean, some of the greatest artists ever that just was not their gift. And in the modern streaming era, songwriters get paid so little that we've lost at one point over 90% of the songwriters who weren't also the artists. Look artists make most of their money from merch sales and ticket sales. Some writers don't get any of that, so it's a tough and dying breed. It's a very difficult prospect. What you did is already starting to show a difference and over time it will be the Salvation of the non artist songwriter. And that was the music modernization act. Which nobody thought we'd ever get done. And I don't know if you want to talk about that now, but I will brag on you because look, as we both know, politics is so polarizing. On both sides. And you sat on the judiciary committee. That's everything from email servers to, but it's all the political stuff comes before the committee in the House and Senate, especially in the house, and nobody thought we'd ever get it done. But you passed it unanimously in the U.S. House of Representatives. And that's the day I became certain that we do it.
Tony Harman on Unioverse: A Gigantic, Community-Owned Franchise
"So the universe is a science fiction based property. You can't think of it like a game. It's a large franchise. Part of what we're thinking about last year was myself is, you know, the frustrations we have, we worked with companies like Disney and built out Star Wars properties and things like that. I've done original content my whole career with few exceptions. And Wyatt is really focused on licensed property content. So he's gone to the frustrations. He signed a big license. They give you a logo on story. You can't use the actors. They don't provide any artwork or anything. We were like, what if actually these companies cooperate with you? What if they tried to promote you and tried to help you with your game? So we decided we'd build our own franchise. So we literally have 25 writers right now, building out the story. Just the story alone, 25 writers, which is amazing. We have people from Star Wars from dune from bird box from Clone Wars from right in the dialog to Call of Duty just a phenomenal group of writers. And they're building out a story that is so rich that allows multiple games to be hosted. So we'll do the first three games ourselves, and we'll release an SDK. What's beautiful about what we're doing is when you get an NFT hero, one of our characters, the SDK allows that character to be fully interoperable between all of her games. In fact, your hero is the admission ticket to the various games. So if you want to do the flying game or the 3D shooter game or the fantasy RPG version game, you drop in the heroes that you own. So you don't own those characters for a single game. You own them for the entire suite of uni over games. And so we're hoping by creating millions of dollars worth of heroes and assets in our works and given more free. Literally, everything that we make, whether it's code, art, character, rigging, animations, we give away to the development community.
Decentralizing the Film Industry With Alveena Khalid of Filmio
"Promises of blockchain is to decentralize all of the things and few industries in the entertainment are larger than the film industry, which is why we have gone down this rabbit hole with some other blockchain companies that are attempting to. Make decentralized filmmaking a thing of the present, not just the future, and today we are pleased to welcome elvina Khaled. She is the director of growth. It fill me O, the website is film dot IO, but make sure you pronounce it right. Fill me O is the site alvina. Welcome to the bed crypto podcast. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me. Yeah, you are the director of growth, so that means you go around in water all the employees and make sure that they flourish. Is that where your position is? Yes. Craig, hold us. Strategy. This is what I really do. Awesome. Well, let's talk a little bit about film and what is broken in the movie industry that this solves what problem are we solving here? Right, so there are different problems that I can, you know, really categorize them. First, let's talk about diversity. So if you take a look at some of the movies that were really used in the past 5 to ten years, most of them are actually prequels or just remakes of some of the popular comic books, some of the larger industries or some of the larger movie makers are the one weeping all the benefits. While all those indie filmmakers or low budget films can not really get push either didn't release because of low budget or just don't get that much attention like the other, you know, the big film filmmaking guys get. That's definitely one thing to keep in mind. The second thing that, you know, that there can be put into perspective or something that's sort of broken. In the current industry, is that if you are a filmmaker and you want to create and you have a really good idea and then you know if you're creating this industry and that unless you are part of this exclusive group of the best agents or the best crew the best script writer and the best distributor, you can make a good movie. But if you don't, it's just really hard for you to not really in your favor to really scale your movie and get to the same level of attention.
The Pursuit of Conservitism
"One of the most, I think one of the most brilliant points that I've heard I read it actually so I should say that I've read in the past year, I think I've mentioned this before. It's from John O'sullivan, who is a British speech writer for Margaret Thatcher. He had this excellent point, it's true of public schools. It's true of higher Ed schools. It's even true of something of the LA times, which a hundred years ago was one of the most conservative right-wing papers in the country and now it is just saying to say his left wing is an egregious understatement. But John who's Sullivan had this brilliant brilliant theory that any individual group or society institution, really anything that is not actively practicing conservatism, like every single day, vigorously pursuing a conservative way of a life. Will naturally drift to the left, because that's just, in most societies, the natural drift of things is leftward. Certainly in this society because our media and our schools and everything. All the influences around us are left. Wouldn't you love I wonder if you ever fantasize this. That you got an hour to speak to all of the students at Harvard. Well, that's how we started the conversation about the bullhorn. I just wanted to trust me. I would love that. I would get booed off the stage. You know, you know what? You might want to write. You should write if I could go back to school. Well, that was my senior speech. That's true. My senior speech that I gave was, which is on YouTube for those who haven't seen it. Yes, he did.

The Ideology of Wilson and Obama
"The ideological roots of the book is about, well, there's a lot of Hegel in history. There's a lot of Lincoln in the founders. There's a lot of Woodrow Wilson and finally someone is explained it. Now, Jonah Goldberg has tried a few times. Fine writer, under the shell, no he's a friend of yours. He's tried a few times in big books that only people like me read to explain where this came from. You went back and tried to do it again. Would you explain to people why you think it's important that they get what Wilson was and why it matters and why the framers Lincoln and Reagan are different from that. I think it's important to understand the ideological roots of the decline in American sea all around them. As I said, Barack Obama is the most ideological president since Wilson. Now Barack Obama's are careful though to mask his ideology. Sometimes he let the mask slip like for instance when he was attending Jeremiah Wright's church for all those years. Jeremiah, I remember the infamous pastor who said 9 11 was America's chickens coming home to roost is that God wouldn't bless America but rather damn America. This is not some passing relationship. I mean, Barack Obama saw down his church satin skews for years, even had him officiate his wedding, Michelle Obama. Or when Barack Obama said that America wasn't an exceptional nation. What he wanted to say, we're going to fundamentally transform America view. Now, I don't know about you, but I don't know many people who think that if you love something, you should want to fundamentally transform it. I can't imagine the fetching this Hewitt would take too well if you said honey, I love you, but I want to fundamentally transform you. With Obama, though, it's somewhat rare that that ideological slips. With Wilson, you see it out in the open. The first openly, the first president who was openly hostile and opposed to our Declaration of Independence and our constitution. He said they were outdated. They were obsolete. They belonged to a Newtonian age of checks and balances, not a Darwinian age of evolution. He said that the moral basis of our nation, the natural, equality of mankind, that none of us as Jefferson said are born with saddles on our backs to be written or spurs on our heels to ride. Was outdated as well. He had this conception of history with a capital H that it was evolving and therefore mankind could be thankful that we could have heaven on earth that we could achieve. Utopia. The founders knew that this was all nonsense. They understood as Madison said in the federalist papers that government is the greatest of all reflections on human nature. And our nature, nature is that we're falling creatures.
Joe Rogan: Prepare for Massive ‘Red Wave’ in US Midterms
"Remember the movie The Shining, the real creepy movie. It was recently rated one of the top 5 horror movies of all time. And I agree with that. It's one of my favorite movies, but it'll scare the crap out of you. Jack Nicholson was brilliant, Shelley Duvall was amazing. The husband takes a job as a caretaker in this the overlook hotel in the middle of the mountains and I don't know, Colorado or somewhere. I think it's based on, I think it's a real hotel up there somewhere. Anyway, there's a scene. It's all haunted. It's a haunted hotel, and there's a scene where the elevator opens, and all these tons of blood torrents of blood come down the hallway. Drenching the hall, the red blood on the wall is really a creepy scene. Joe Rogan invoked that scene when he talked about what he thinks is going to happen one week from today. The red wave that's common is going to be like the elevator doors opening up in The Shining. That's what I think. I think people are just like, what the are you saying? They're making Republicans. I don't know how they're doing it. I had a family member who isn't who's a boomer and a die hard liberal, and they told me when I was home this summer that they would vote for desantis. And I'm like, how did you lose this person? Yeah. How did you lose this person? This is a. This is a go to the ballot and vote blue no matter what. And you've lost even the boomers. She's a writer named Bridget, saying the Democrats have lost the boomers. They've lost the blue voters. People are saying, uh uh. No more.
Andrew Klavan Reflects on the Most Influential Men in His Life
"Been the most important influences on you in terms of understanding manhood. We've had football coaches, grandfathers, the guest you had on your show who came on my show Jack calf of the terminal wrist. I actually said it was the fictional figures. He read about as a voracious reader as a child, the heroes from the Tom Clancy novels, who for drew Cleveland was the person who said, oh yeah, I want to be like him. Oh, it's an easy question for me to answer, but it's so much like Jackson that I'm a little embarrassed. I felt that I was consciously felt that I did not have manhood roles in my life that I was that I really admired. Which age did you realize that you were lacking that? It was like as I came into teenage teenage life. And I started to look for them in books and in movies. And the one who really struck me more than any other was Raymond Chandler, who wrote the Philip marlowe books. And the reason was this, the reason was in the first paragraph. In fact, I frequently have said that the first page of the big sleep, which is his first detective novel with Philip marlowe, is the reason I became a writer, because what it does is it describes a man who is inwardly a knight who is carrying within him the chivalric code into a world of corruption and Chandler wrote a famous essay, which back in the day I could quote by heart, but it is where we get the phrase mean streets. He said, down these mean streets, a man must go who has not himself mean, who's neither tarnished nor afraid. And when I read that, I thought that's who I want to be. I'm not going to be as a soldier, probably. I'm not going to be a police officer, but I can walk without corruption in a corrupt world. I know
"writer" Discussed on Dear Writer
"Like a radical thing to do. But when jerry challenges a secret school society individuals has defined act turns into an all out war now. The only question is who will survive this. Is this this catholic school for boys that has a secret school society which runs everything on the down low and gives people all these. They call them assignments and pretty much forces everyone in the school to carry out. These assignments are also risk being ostracized by everybody so this kid is given the assignment to not sow chocolates and the school chocolate which is a massive. Do like they. It's a it's a big deal so everyone else is saying like we saw ten. Today we sold like eight today and he did not sell for ten days he says like none none none and then the you know the teachers get mad and everything and then after ten days or up but why am i selling the chocolates and then refuses to participate and then he gets bullied and whatnot. Anyways against gets very dock very quickly. I can also see why it was bad. I was going to ask you about this. Incredibly it's quite explicit. And when i realized that it's about a secret school society that believes people and runs like this really weird like underground initiation thing. I was like. I can see why maybe what teenagers reading this book and then having ideas about making me secret societies in their school i can see why they banned it but the message in it is very good so Yeah i would recommend. I would not recommend the movie. It's not done well and a half. The time spent asking each other. Why are we selling chocolates. What is this movie about.

You might remember several token shops garments talking about jk rollings slash galbraith's books in those reading. The most recent one troubled blood and she makes reference to it in that. Just like an passing as like a random topic of conversation. And i felt that was almost more. Callous away rush just like casually mentioned like. Isn't that terrible. The mike why did you have to do that. Why why are you bringing stuff from. The news like random. It was really strange. I guess it was around that time when maybe the book was published or like just after Yeah i think the one this one's but more recently published this one go to win loss. I found it. I chained throat like within a couple of days because it was quite short by science chapters. Like you could go through chapter in kind of like five minutes okay. So it wasn't a long read. It was it was a good read. Yeah what have you been reading. There's a little bit of a story behind the book that i'm writing so briefly. Go into that. So i mentioned in my blog post but a couple of my friends and i are attempting to watch every movie that's ever been made since we've been born so it's quite a challenge. It's really interesting as well because we've been watching a whole bunch of obscure movies and the only constraints we have on. Is that hester had a theatrical release. So that doesn't take out. That many but it removes all the weird telly features and stuff like that and tv movies and hallmark movies and stuff so We started in november nineteen eighty eight. And thank we've done like fifteen sixteen movies maybe and were somewhere in the middle of november. Anyway where we're watching one. We never look up..

"Hit to satisfy the rita. There was one other thing that i thought i would mention buried in there she. The author poses very interesting problem for writers to think about so. She says producing critical. Dystopia is becoming more difficult. Sorry this is not to say that stoep in fiction as dying but rather that to create original content with accuracy presents. A new challenge. So one of those. A lot of. It's been done before so being able to have a new take on. It is becoming more and more difficult. That's interesting yeah so maybe as will be a new take on it. Hopefully people may have learned something from my analysis of this paper or at least is let a little find it hard to find very specific genre related like books and things. I found it really interesting that i could find article about contemporary. Why distorted fiction so hopefully you will got something from it too. Yeah was very interesting.

"Is the primary elements the reader identifies with so. I have another quote from her article where she says fans strive to be the hero. They see represented. Sorry i think it's a big wish. She says it's a really big pot of the disturb pick literature as having characters that are quote unquote heroes. But the raiders end up developing a lot of empathy towards them because of their victimization in the world and they have to overcome all the obstacles and whatever else is thrown at them and then the raiders sympathize with their efforts. So this seems to be in all of the books that she went through so hunger games divergent their protagonist was like this all of them. So i was. That's probably fair. And i think as a very similar to our characters where they have a lot to overcome and they're differently victimized but they do end up. Being quote unquote heroic. Yes so that was the fast pot that was essential and the other part was the beginning and i found this very interesting. 'cause she said that pretty much all disturbed pick fiction. Aimed at young adults follows the same. Like blueprint for the opening of the book. So there's three k. Pots in the beginning so the first is the life changing day. And apparently this usually happens. What what is the fess chapter where readers are introduced to the the has the greatest impact on the character's lives so we did that thankfully unintentionally. We'll actually changed as well so it ended up being happen and the fish chapter. Did she say for the three that she followed. Yes happened in the first chapter so in the maze runner there in the maze. Okay i'm just thinking in terms of john marston series which remember a. I can't remember now that we've discussed this on the cost but of written like a short view on and i think probably the main criticism of the fist book is that it's a bit slow to stop because the actual life changing event as you say doesn't heaven into the i think it's the fifth chapter which really fire on in the book really..

"Okay thanks yes like very broad finishing of it and eventually this discussion about what dystopia fiction is lasts. I think it's four pages. Wash tries to like tease it. Out but eventually settles on a commonly agreed upon definition which is why stope ian fiction not only portrays a duck future but more importantly highlights the deterioration of a political structure therefore disturbed sittings about upon the authors world's imperfections and created to be considerably west than our own. So that in the end was the definition. For why i just opium fiction came up with and i actually think our book fit ya quite well thinking so well at least i think we've classified it as best as we can in the correct sean route so that made me happy. I guess we'll because we have a hard time going through all the different genres trying to pick we did originally. Oh maybe it's action adventure but the action adventure wasn't quite right because it kind of in your survival store in and your light but it's not like you are against the environmental something and then you're kind of thinking well a case it. A thrilla will elements of that hara known it was. I was struck yet. We sent it on to stop ian. And i think that's the right fit for it. I think other yeah anyway. So then is it goes on to talk about why the trend for stokes fiction as to target younger audiences rather than older audiences so she used classical examples of dystopian fiction like one thousand nine hundred four for example which is more targeted to adult audience whereas a lot of the novels today a targeted towards teenagers so she kind of seems fairly obvious but she says that she thinks it's because the vulnerability of that age group leads to more engaged reading which i think i would agree with. Yeah i think it's things that we've talked about before. Is your the age at listen. You're sort of sitting out your beliefs for later life..

"Everyone not prepared this week show. Everyone can forgive you flying by the state of my pens. Let's have a much more coherent talk about a useful writing results for mash lee now. Well i hope it's going to be more coherent but you get to deal with me having i on what was it yesterday. I got home at two. Am after doing some extra work are shoot was meant to go to eleven pm. We've finished at one. Thirty forty five minutes out in the hills. So i'm thinking back so i was pretty tired about. It was enjoyable and then last night we started watching a movie which i thought was an hour and a half. It was almost three and a half hours from my god. So i'm a bit tired but we'll see how this goes so after last times talking shop where i reviewed a research article. I got quite a lot of very good feedback from it. So i thought i would do it again but this time. I took a different tact. I thought that i would talk a little bit about genre. Because sarah and i kind of had this problem. We were trying to classify what genre our book is. we were looking into. Why disturbed fiction. We're trying to decide whether at fit into that genre in the end we kind of just decided that yup i guess it does based on the fact that there's very loose definitions of it and it kinda seemed to fit so the article i've chosen today is about why dystopia and fiction so i thought we could have a little chat about that paper which is pretty interesting and office. Some really good insight into how they're structured and the elements that make them work so the article for today is a creative exploration and analysis of contemporary dystopia infection. By minera is a and it's from the journal writing in practice volume fourteen twenty eighteen. I'm excited for another lakesha. This lecture time with ashley. Many lectures you get to this. Basically what sounds like when i lecture at uni although to be fair. I'm slightly more prepared for these ones Mostly because they don't have slides to joke by memory although you might say my slides out particularly while they are useful. I just don't put a lot of information on them. Because i like the students to have to come to class or listen to me. Talk right anyways. So the author of this paper manera izzy shea says that the aim of her paper is to highlight the elements in the openings of why disturbing novels and she uses the hunger games divergent end. The maze runner to help writers find out. What the core elements. Are that make these books. So popular and appealing sounds quite interesting. The paper starts off with defining what dystopia infection is why the teenage audience so appropriate for it and then it goes into the important elements in the beginning like the first few chapters of why dystopia infections. I thought i'd just kind of run through that to give you guys a good overview what she talked about. Sorry as i alluded to. Before she also found it difficult to define what dystopia infection was. Especially in the waie context. She talked about a lot of different meanings that people attribute to dystopia fiction so broadly she says it involves a quote unquote non-existent. Society is fairly broad and dystopia literature. In particular these novels rely on futures which utopian societies have failed. How ever that doesn't encompass all why dystopia literature that's just a proportion of them tend to have that aspect to it but not all of them i was gonna ask what she meant by non existent society actually does she made like a fictional like entirely fictional society or does she mean no she means it could even be like the the ideals of society that don't exist so it's like a society that doesn't exist on our world like right now but could exist or is like an entirely different place..

"I i had good intentions. I i'm gonna read all his books and then i'm going to watch the series started. The first one was all right. Go halfway through the second one. Aria why are you so boring handle seeing around the country any longer and then i gave up. Well i feel. We don't necessarily gel women's writing or his work. Which i think i could gel with it. It's just that. I don't know i haven't really tried for boy i know. The books are pretty hefty status. You're committing a lot of time if you decide to start series same with watching the show though because the sheer athleticism shirts as well. I haven't had time. But yeah like i did find his tips very useful and one particular was about creating conflict with characters in creating situations for each character. That would be the worst nightmare. In order to challenge the characters views and advance the storyline which i completely agree with. Yeah it probably helps because his are also like multi perspective so probably quite well with what we do. This is true. And i don't enjoy putting character hod situations but also maybe get like an overall enjoyment out of the system creating like a really good arc through the book and i know they're gonna come out beside of and be stronger for it. I kind of get enjoyment out of that. But i don't enjoy the going through it necessarily yup but then i'm like yes. Let's do this this. Put them in this awful situation. Let's see what happens fist overall. Yeah so it's okay. So i i agreed with the end He also talked about writing needing to reflect realism. Which is one of the reasons he discussed as to why so many characters were killed off is because he felt that is a pot of life and considering the rows and the sitting eight places characters n. He wanted it to be consistent with that and not give any character special treatment. I love that. Yeah good own hem in. I think we definitely do the same novels where anyone could die any moment. It's like you think that this is the main character. But that doesn't mean this safe. That's one of james's main comments when he talks to people like when he he was talking about her proofing it for us and he's like no one's safe just kill characters left frieden center. You won't see it coming. I mean we do thought into it all. I know but. I think quite realistic for how the situation would play out is probably quite unpredictable. And i think that creates uncertainty for the raiders. If they believe that any character can be killed. It makes the stakes a lot higher rather than having one main character. And you're like well they're gonna get through this because the the main character in the story doesn't work and that is also a benefit of the multi perspective because your story can work even if the main character. Yeah yeah. I guess that's one of the flaws they usually say about. Having fest usually the The character whose perspective it's from going to survive or otherwise. How could they told you the story that with ours or with moti perspective ones who knows there's other people that can tell the story but so that was my tool the month which again the channel was cold outstanding screenplays and they've got like a number of different authors Jk rolling if Screen play mosses as well.

I ended up doing for the festival slash sacrifice slash new year's celebration that they have that broad and then start narrowing down one thing that i would add about wikipedia as well which scott back the things that i done in the past using the pedia is scroll down to the references and actually like tabs that connect the references and sometimes they will be more detail on watch. You're kind of wanting and provide more useful information than just wikipedia. loan would yet and it also The quality of the references as well. So you open it up. And you're like oh. This web page is really strange. Then you think while wikipedia is so. I'm not sure how much. I trust this wikipedia article. So that is one thing that is also useful to do differently. I would agree. It's really easy. You can quickly tell. How much is known about a topic. Just by having a quick look at those francis to bottom unfortunately with the ancient greece book more often than not. It's you open one in. It's like some rowett found. You do get that a bit as well and then it's like well another thing. I'd suggest so i like everyone else open hundreds of tabs when i'm researching but i also have a notebook next to me because i find it really off track. Sometimes when i'm researching and i go down tons of rabbit holes. Forget where i was. So i tend to have a notebook makes me nervous. Right down. k. Weds or little bits and pieces from some of the web pages and circle them to remind myself to go back to them. So that's really useful. I do that with chemistry while because click on something pick. Oh i could do this. Go off on a tangent. I'm like i don't even know where i started. And there are other things that i wanted to research. But i can't remember what they were because i got so distracted by this random rabbit hole that i've gone down. I would also suggest being all encompassing with your sources. So just because you can't find it on google doesn't mean you're not gonna be able to find it somewhere else so i always use google. I use google scholar a lot. i also use. There's a lot of open access journals and databases that you can use often. You can find a lot more peer reviewed articles but then also like sarah said using the libraries or even textbooks as well or old school but encyclopedias to from way back in the day to going to the library and having to do your race from actual encyclopedia today which volume do..

I've had to research and then i was thinking of making a blog post about doing research shows like oh just like note down everything and then all this is to amusing every chapter. But i'll just keep this in cases useful so now you get to hear my random less what. I'm actually writing chapters in the past. Obviously there's a lot more extensive.

Did they have played. Did they have cutlery. They sitting at a table or did they use candles or lamps but more often than something like did they have an insert. Whatever item it is here. Yeah happens to me as well but yes or things. Like what plants do they farm in the season because they're walking through farmland. I think that's why it takes such a long time for some of the things. That don't wanna put a placeholder. Because i i need. I'm going to need it for subsequent chapters. So i recently suspicion this ancient greece one. I've tended to do the research even though it's gonna take time in hopes of saving me time later down the line and i think it's worked in some cases because a lot of the time now for some of the everyday conversation type c. I don't need to research every detail anymore. Because they know what they're wearing what season it is. I know what plants around or you know. What the climates. Like kind of what.

"We grew up in kind of decision so i can generally see with that. We're moving kinda through. And if i didn't think that needed researching was sometimes like parts of new zealand where i was unfamiliar. They were things relating to the military. Like weapons designations vehicles equipment. That kind of thing. Which was sometimes just easier to ed later because even if you know exactly what make model gun. They're using you can just be like oh well you can imagine like a rifle or whatever necessarily have to him to be super specific about it. So some of that stuff was edited. Light a through editing which Facet writing because of that But yeah what does it look like for you win. You're writing a check to actually address the morning thing. I'd sit down and try to imagine the whole chapter at once. Usually i'll sit down and i'll be able to imagine at a certain point so can ride it but then usually because i play the scene in my mind when i'm thinking about it so the characters that's fine. They walked to the door then. I opened the door. And i'm like Like a head or they'll see a character but like the characters won't do anything. Stand there in space. Yeah pretty much. And i'm like okay so something needs to happen here either. Maybe it's because they don't know each other. Or maybe it's because i don't know what sitting is we'll whatnot my most recent one. I was doing a like sacrifice. Christ the problem was i didn't know you just have them standing randomly outside his like a bunch of people around here. Let what's going on pretty much like standing.

I'm like okay like details. Need to be then. I'll go to do research. I think we do it quite a similar way that way.

"And then came the even more research phase want to call it that because you have the loose outlined but then trying to put into a coherent story including character development and changes was very challenging especially trying to work in characters that were there and have them influence event also because it's really in two different time periods so we were like reaching two different threads of the story and trying to work out with a whip is on the same page like a remember that yes especially this book. I think yeah. We always bite often lot we do. We're very ambitious. We couldn't just stick a one story three. We were like we must include more. Well we like it to be more multiple layers and things. I think we talked about this with having multiple layers and a story like she enjoys and so do we so much injury. You can do so much more with it much launching a good way. Yeah city has a lot of races just to do the general because even though you have your key events and your characters now it's another whole nother trying to mesh them together y- into a story and then sarah hitter the chapter plans after that so we go from outline to even more dipped which i think took even more research because at least we then had you have the you know the. He goes to ancient greece. Then sarah okay. Where does he arrive in ancient greece. What's happening when he gets there so you can have a few checkpoints about that. Continue onto the next one. So that's even more research and then end up with your chapter plans and then you go to write in. It's more research again. Found out although actually this does lead into the knicks point really well which was about researching while writing and if we do this and obviously we both do it and what it looks like so maybe i'll pass out to you because i've been talking for ages as i said we do research during rising on generally try and look the check to outline and then win on trying like sit down before writing the chapter look over and then i try to envision kind of what's going happen i hid and with the engine greystoke coke. I often find win on some sitting there. Trying to imagine that they're these black holes where i haven't quite got something good out and so then i have to try and work out what those black holds out. Because sometimes it's not always obvious it'll be like why can't imagine this particular scene and so currently for me For an example. I i'm at a point in my chapter where you know as i said i've written about one hundred hundreds of it and then i'm kind of about to dive into the real meat of the chapter where i need to work out. Watan ancient greek gymnasium looks like and i don't know what it looks like. I like that is a total whole. Like i just imagine. I'm just imagining like people fighting wrestling. I don't really know what it looks like around just kinda away so there's a bit of research he's done there and so when i do go away to a bit of research and then slowly kinda starts filling in stop being able to see if it more and the characters Becoming a bit more alive.

"No that's definitely right near fixing mistakes. Yes and then they. Sometimes you miss some of them and then later on you're like oh no. It's another one that i think you get tired of fixing to. We went back to look at our book after passing over it so many times back. Why did we change that. Why are we waiting so long to change that because even just rating over i knew it was there but i think you just get tired of riot. It's not as bad as the other stuff i removed. Yeah it's probably fine and then like it's not fine. It's really think so. If you start out on a more positive note of having done the work you can avoid that. Yes yes for me. I think it's great if you can right from what you know it differently can give a lot of realism to your story. And it can be story up really authentically. I think for us would be most visible our fiction series because we grew up in the sitting. So i think we ed's quite a lot of detail and observation and i guess like feeling from the sitting because we know it intimately. Yeah so you know the cabin. The bush we don't need to google at the bush. Looks like because we've both camped in the bush done bush walks. You know what it smells like you know. Usually what kind of trees there are. Everything like matt's house. I think even though our characters go through some quite intense as his obviously we were all teenagers once in. You can remember how you felt and how you reacted to something. So i think having our characters is teenagers also were able to put our experience into that however. I don't think everything you write has to be familiar to you because otherwise a whole bunch of books wouldn't get reason because we can't go back to ancient greece to see what it was like and we'll never really one of the people back in where like either so we have to justify that from what we read so although i guess a lot of the emotional context from our ancient greece book can probably be gained through experience or having writing it. Because you've experienced it yet. That's sarah and i will never be hop flights and we can't tell you how such is used to fight or have experienced to ask ourselves back then another not. I've never had to hijack a car like they do in our team such series either. So i think something's do require research and i don't think there's anything wrong with that but that's when it gets hard to get right. That was well. Because you've researched it so you wanna make sure that you convey it so people who have experienced it don't necessarily realize that you haven't guess that's the challenge right. So what do you think about reading books in your genre as a form of research for your novels or writing novels. It's definitely a must you know it's okay to do things differently in imperative even but you know you have to remember that you are writing to a specific audience and if the book is so far out from what everyone else is doing and that john laura and it doesn't obey the usual conventions offset genre. If you market it under the john jonah your audience maybe dissatisfied. So i think you do need to ask yourself the question..

"You like a smoothie writings it also helps you to envision not only with a works. How an idea might work so you could have some basic idea that maybe you even seen dunk. Before but researching the sitting in the world might bring a whole new. Spins the idea which gives it a fresh take and without resist. She might completely misled idea. Though i exactly believe in the right what not kind of thing that people talk about you can only imagine as far as your current experience. Knowledge takes you. You can't write about the thing if you don't know it exists and sometimes research can help uncover those things that you might not have thought about before. So that's kind of my take on. Why researching is important to an awful. You have anything to end this. I would definitely agree with the research helping to envision the scenes in your mind because especially when you start off with a very basic idea. note that little nugget. And you're like oh this is really great. And then you if you're able to start researching et definitely opens your eyes to so much more information and possibilities that you didn't even know before you out so always gives you really great ideas to continue expanding on your idea and make a more realistic guess plot. I also think researching before you start. Your novel also helps you. Establish with the yearbook or ideas actually doable or not. Because there's always the chance that you have this one little piece of information. It's not enough of that makes any sense or it's been done before so i think researching not necessarily even researching terms of getting on your computer and finding out information about it but also reading in your genre or reading other books that may have that idea in it to say with a actually festival novel in the best place but also that. It's going to be doable and give you an interesting plot. Yeah yeah and then sort of to add to what you said. I think researching also helps you bring your characters and setting and plot to life and when you have all that information backing you up can help give.

So how have things being on your end. Actually they've actually been okay. I finished the chip to that. I had started last time. And i'm about halfway through the next one. Which is spain of relief. It's being going quicker. I think it's because the check. Jake carries on directly from the one before right here.

I have also had slightly more success. I managed to finish the chapter. That i had been writing which that one has taken me a ridiculous amount of time so i was very heavy to get to the end of that.
