Nets beat writer has Luka All-Defensive first team and Andre Drummond on the All-NBA 2nd team over Jokic among other atrocities. Yes, his vote actually matters

β€œGreg Logan has worked for Newsday since 1982 covering a wide array of sports and events, currently including the Brooklyn Nets beat.”

Recently on Twitter he released his ballots. First, he left Gobert off his DPOY voting instead opting to put Drummond and Whiteside:

It only gets worse from there as he puts Luka on the All-Defensive 1st team: (https://twitter.com/greglogan1/status/1292331369880793089?s=21)

He later cites defensive rebounds in a follow-up tweet as his reasoning: (https://twitter.com/greglogan1/status/1292333736667893760?s=21)

1st and 2nd team: (https://twitter.com/greglogan1/status/1292332315549618176?s=21)

I put writing my book on hold for this. Before anyone asks, both shows went into development hell and will not be released internationally in any case.

My parents and I were moving into a new fancy apartment building that has its own cafe. You cannot access the cafe unless you are a resident or have been given a pass. I was in there one day, getting coffee and chatting with some other residents while waiting for some things to be delivered.

WON: Some more info on NXT adding new writers. Also, Meltzer notes "Although nobody will say it, there is a lot of unhappiness about losing in the ratings every week.

From Today's Wrestling Observer Newsletter: Link for Subscribers

>Regarding the story about NXT adding new writers , there have been three people who were on the regular writing team who were moved to writing NXT when it moved to television in September. They’ve added two others, one who had been a former writer brought back to the company and the other someone on the writing team who was working for the company moved to NXT. Although nobody will say it, there is a lot of unhappiness about losing in the ratings every week. The unhappiness shouldn’t be losing as much as the complete inability to draw those under 50. NXT has always had writers but they were people who were on the main roster writing team who would also help write NXT. Since going on television, NXT was given three exclusive writers and now that number has been upped to five

AITA for telling my gf she's not as good of a writer as she thinks she is?

I admit, I do regret it a little but I'll give full context so you can understand. My gf has been writing since she was around 10, and has improved a lot. She primarily writes fanfiction but recently has branched out into original work. She has a decent ish following, and her writing isnt half bad. I supported her all this time, but ever since she started on her original work(s) she's been extremely wrapped up in it.

She's barely done anything in the house in quarantine other than writing her book(s) and working. She does make time for me wherever she can but it's really not enough. I feel like an afterthought. I did talk to her about it and we started spending more time with each other after, she said sorry too but its still not enough. She started growing a bit engrossed in it again so I brought it up again. She said she's currently putting her writing over everything and told me it's the most important thing in her life right now, and she can't wait to share whatever success she h

Revisiting the well – should writers do it?

I cannot tell you how excited my daughter has been for the release of Midnight Sun. For those not in the know, this is a retelling of Twilight, but from Edward’s (the sparkly romance vampire) point of view, as opposed to Bella’s POV in the original novel.

The thing is, this is not the first time the author has revisited Twilight. She has also released Life & Death, which is a retelling of the original novel, but with the characters all gender swapped.

This baffles me. As a fan, I would be wanting the author to tell new stories in this world, not rehash and tweak the old ones. But my daughter is eating this stuff up.

So is this something we would be more interested in – authors revisiting their most popular tales?

Would you want a gender-swapped version of Way of Kings? Or how about a retelling of A Song of Ice and Fire from the Night King’s POV?

How would you feel if your favourite author revisiting their iconic works, instead of creating whole new stories?

Did BFA ironically end up more realistic than if the devs were good writers?

If you look at the story close up, it's a lot more realpolitik than if it had been a traditionally "well-told" fantasy story.

I mean, the war was literally won with an SI:7-backed coup LMAO.

Anduin took the figure of a graying, grizzled old general who opposed the current Horde leadership but at the time had no particular plans or allies -- he only saw suicide as an option. Instead, Anduin took him back to Stormwind Stockade, then released him on the condition that he form a dissident faction opposed to the Sylvanas regime. SI:7 agents abetted him, helping him travel safely.

To lend the dissident faction legitimacy, the first move was to go trot out the old retired founder figure of Thrall, not unlike how Prophet Zul tried to gain the appearance of legitimacy by resurrecting the dusty zombie of the founder-king Dazar. Thrall is a figure who, like Saurfang, articulates almost no discernible political positions, only a vague call to "restore honor to the Horde". He was, in fact, th

Writing 101: The top five mistakes this editor sees new writers make too often

Hey guys, gals, and pals,

One of the things I like to do on Reddit is to edit people's work, from copy editing to narrative critiques. And I wanted to share the most common critiques I make. Do y'all agree with them?

1. The overuse of adverbs, inadvertently and otherwise.

New writers often find adverbs an easy crutch to support their prose. It's faster to write "Billy ate as quickly as he could." than "Billy ate at a pace that would set a hippo to shame."

The reason why editors and readers find adverbs so irksome is that they are the ultimate tell not show words. By replacing these words with more prose, you may find that you're setting the scene and tone in a more vivid manner. Stephen King is quoted as saying, "...the road to Hell is paved with adverbs." I'm not so vehement. I wouldn't banish adverbs, just use them sparingly.

2. **Serving back-to-back sentences, that are way too

I just read this quote on another post about how bad scripts get chosen. I’m just putting this out there. I’m a producer/director and cinematographer. I’m still somewhat new in the industry but I am a dignified pro. I work for a school district in Los Angeles, California and produce documentaries, cooking shows and commercials for broadcast television. I’ve done a little bit of narrative work but would LOVE to do more. I own a lot of equipment and have access to even more. I personally would love to put myself out there as a connection for someone who feels they have an amazing script and is having difficulty getting it into the hands of someone that can turn it from pages to images.

Oda's inability to kill characters is one of his biggest weaknesses as a writer

And by characters, I mean in the ones in the present time, not including flashbacks. Yes there's a handful killed (Ace, Whitebeard, Yasuie), and these were all highly impactful to the story and also incredibly emotional.

My issue is Oda repeatedly builds up emotional stakes, only for him to reveal a bait and switch some chapters later. This happened with Igharam, Pell (there's exactly 0 evidence to suggest that he survived because of 9/11, this was a myth propagated by the community), Pagaya, Bon Clay and now Pound. If he didn't want to kill these characters, that's fine, it's just that it feels very uncommitted and stale at this point of the story

Like even when Pedro "died" my first though wasn't shock or empathy for the characters, but a part of me was just wondering when he would make his return. In fact I'm still convinced he's going to swoop in and save the day at some point of the climax of the Wano arc.

Not only does it undercut the tension of the story at dramatic moment

Do you ever watch a movie and immediately realize how much the writer/director must hate women?

*Here come the spoilers for an extremely campy horror movie known as β€œThe Terrifier” with some rapey undertones, so be warned for spoilers and possible triggers”

Now while I love watching horror movies (the Conjuring franchise comes to mind as a particularly well down series) it’s hard to deny the history of sexism that is portrayed in many a slasher film (women in revealing outfits punished for the crime of having sex or partying with murder methods that are particularly drawn out/revealing compared to their male counterparts) but yet again I find myself watching another movie where this hits an extreme that I believe can only come from a person who truly hates women.

What common advice or mistakes hold writers back?

A while back, I tried my hand at wheel pottery. After a few sessions, I realised a big part of pottery is learning how to avoid common mistakes: don't twist your clay, don't leave your walls too thin, etc.

That got me thinking about writing. What common mistakes do we have to avoid? What common advice holds us back?

Just recently, a beta reader advised me to "never skip an action scene." If I was a new writer, I might have taken that feedback to heart and filled my manuscript with pointless action sequences that would bore even Michael Bay!

What would you add to the list?

Just finished a 2-month binge of Star Trek: Voyager and...why do the writers hate their own characters??

Not trying to instigate a bunch of Trek arguments, but a few months ago I'd binged Deep Space 9 and had the craziest lingering feelings about the show after completing it. I finished Voyager about an hour ago, after a pretty hard-line completion marathon (I'm a teacher on summer vacation) and I must say, what the fuck? It just...ended. The ending was literally "We made it! Hurray!"

Where's the payoff with Paris confronting/reconnecting with his father? Where's Chakotay and 7 of 9 at least giving each other a knowing look of hope and happiness? WHERE IS HARRY KIM'S TINY WOODEN BOX WITH A PROMOTION PIP?? Who the fuck gave up on this show and started regurgitating TNG's 'business as usual' self-contained episodes?

I'm being unfair to the MVP's of the show, the EMH and 7 of 9, and occasionally Captain Janeway, but the writers were truly unfair to the other characters, which they seemed to abandon after season 3. The Maquis plot line was totally abandoned, and that's understandable, bu

Lilly writer Suriko here, info on my new VN project First Snow

Hey, long time no post. Suriko here, writer for Lilly path, co-writer for Hanako path, and Producer.

Just wanted to give a heads-up on a new visual novel I've written, which is releasing in a few days. It's releasing on Steam, for free.

The game is called First Snow, and is a yuri romance story. Tonally similar to Katawa Shoujo, fairly laid-back and comfy.

Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1259430/First_Snow/

Website: https://firstsnow.salty-salty-studios.com/

Blog: https://blog.salty-salty-studios.com/

It's being developed by Salty Salty Studios and published by Studio Γ‰lan, who are full of fine folks.

I have a couple other games I've been working on in the pipeline for later, and can note them here once they're further along if there's an interest.

So Twitter has kind of been blowing up lately with multiple fantasy writers being accused of sexually harassing lesser known writers on multiple occasions...

I'm just... heartbroken. As if 2020 wasn't already going bad enough, there's quite a few women coming forward with pretty terrible stories of how higher profile male authors treated them when they were just starting to hit the con scene as a professional writer. They're saying they didn't say anything at the time of the harassment because they felt they had little to no power in comparison to the harasser that already had a lot of connections in the industry and was generally seen as a "nice guy."

As a man, I can understand how a single guy might think "this will be a great place to meet somebody. Somebody who likes reading and writing the same kind of stuff I do. Someone with similar goals." ... What I don't understand is how someone can completely ignore basic manners and social cues in ANY setting... let alone, a PROFESSIONAL setting.

But like I said, I'm just heartbroken to see so many women that were just trying to get a foot in the door and make connections in a professional, n

Books by Black writers that are not about systemic racism (looking for Black Joy)

Hey - I’m looking for recommendations on books by black writers. I’d like to β€œsupport Black art” so to speak, and it’s been recommended to also β€œcelebrate Black joy” not only to focus on purely educational / systemic racism related content (I do read content of that nature as well).

So, I’m looking for anything that’s: comedy/satire, could be set at any time but I do enjoy β€œgrounded sci fi” or futuristic but not deep space exploration etc.

Any tips, let me know!

I just want to add a little bit of perspective on what trying to be screenplay writer in the third world feels like and why the USA and the English speaking markets, despite their flaws, seem like paradise in comparison.

I will preface this by saying I am obviously not from the United States, Canada, Australia, England, or any of the nationalities that I believe frequent this sub the most. I am a colombian man who studied literature and cinema but ended up working in environmental conservation due to the lack of opportunities inside the audiovisual world. ItΒ΄s a tight environment and most of what gets produced is always the same telenovelas and only about 10, 15 films a year, that are written by the same five or six people (mexico might be a little different I believe, but no that much). When I graduated university I got a job editing screenplays for a soap opera channel. Unfortunately the pay was too low and the nature of the job felt so pointless that I ended up getting another job tracking tapirs and spectacled bears for a living. A total 180 degrees change from what I thought my life was going to be.

Now, if you guys are not from a thirworld country and think your screenplay has no chance, then
