Add It To My List: March 2017

Link-up creators are Lauren from Eat, Drink, & Be Lauren and Bre from Bre Writes. Basically, they are always recommending things to each other- podcasts, television shows, music, blah blah blah. And they figured- why not share even further?

Kinda short & sweet this month, but here's what I came up with.

    What have you been enjoying this month?


      1. I love a good spotify list! Have you already seen Beauty and the Beast? Is it better in 3D? I'm thinking of going tonight. Thanks for linking up!

      2. So the sweet potatoes buffalo chicken combination sounds like something I'd never like together, but it's good?

      3. WHOA. That lettuce vs. tomato comment is rude as hell. Yes, dude. Dolly, Martina, Trisha, and Loretta got THAT successful by NOT being the main event. Freaking misogynist moron.

      4. I love alllll things buffalo chicken so I am going to try those sweet potatoes!

      5. about beauty and the beast and all the outcry against it... i've always thought it's a greater sin to disparage others because of their choices than it is to be the one making the choices. that said, i've done my share of badmouthing others. cast not the first stone, right? least of my brethren and all that. i'm not perfect. i always feel guilty afterward when i've done wrong. i try not to do it again, but i'm human.

        this: "this just another worldly movie made by worldly people with worldly agendas". i agree wholeheartedly with it. when you politicize a story to impose your opinions, your morals on others, you're not being true to the story. yes, there's a huge demand for cultural diversity in fiction right now. i see it my twitter feed from the literary agents i follow on a daily basis.

        i just want good stories. period. maybe that's my white "privilege" talking.

        the other day, i saw an agent express interest in stories in which the main character suffers from a disability that others can't see and thought, i could write that. i've got that thing down pat. but... why would i write it? i've blogged about it. it doesn't do any good. i'd just be preaching to people more, imposing my morals on them. that's not the kind of storyteller i want to be.

        i doubt when french novelist gabrielle-suzanne barbot de villeneuve penned this particular tale, she'd thought, one of my characters needs to be homosexual. as far as i'm concerned, le fou's part is so miniscule that his sexuality doesn't really play a significant role in the story. making him homosexual is basically affirmative action in action. i was under the impression affirmative action is frowned upon nowadays... but what do i know?

        that's more of a rant than i meant to write. my point, ultimately, is that i don't give a shit whether le fou is gay.
