In Which endever* discusses ways and mindsets with which an Evil Author can write Social Justice.
Hello again! Last week I (endever*) wrote about the fine lines of being Evil – specifically, the importance of differentiating between being evil towards your characters versus having an evil impact on the real world. Today I’d like to work forward from that discussion of how oppressions can show up in our writing to the broader idea of making our writing a resistance practice/part of the revolution/a small way of changing the world.
In Which endever* tackles the difficult quandary of being Evil without being oppressive.
Welcome, lovely octopi! Help yourself to some cookies, please, and settle in for a conversation about what it means to be an Evil Author. GeGi ever-so-wonderfully began this topic several weeks ago, and now I (endever*) would like to add some of my own musings. Specifically, I’d like to discuss the difference between being evil to one’s characters and having a real-world impact that is evil.
In Which Your Hosts Answer a Few Questions about Friendship of a Writerly Variety.
Greetings, fellow octopi. Welcome to our First Ever Q&A!
With you today for this Very Special occasion will be our two co-founders: GeGi and endever*. The Topic is Writerly Friends, and it’s one which we’ve been nibbling about the edges of for quite some time here at The Octopus Society of Evil Authors Headquarters. We’ve decided, after much discussion between ourselves, to cover this area of writer life via a Question and Answer format; both in order to make our lives a little easier, but also — more importantly — to give you, dear readers, a chance to see this important facet of our lives from two different viewpoints. First to answer will be GeGi, followed by the same set of questions next week to be answered by endever*.
Without further ado, let us acquire appropriate refreshments and begin!
