The weekend’s here, have a can of . . . beer? Cheer? Deer? (Hm, canned deer . . .) A re-read of King Lear? OK, enough rhyming. The blog staff here (oops, rhyming again — can’t stop, won’t stop) at LSQ drank a lot of coffee this morning and we’ve put together a round up of all the excellent blog posts that appeared on the blog this past week. So, if you’re in search of a quick, insightful read on topics such as comics, strong female characters or, you know, fairy tale giants, then take a peek at this run-down then hop on over to the post(s) that are to your liking. Have a good one, dearest readers, and happy weekend!
- On Monday, new blogger A. Francis Raymond contemplated the struggle of achieving a work-life-writing balance in her post “My time! (slaps hand) Mine!”
- On Tuesday, LSQ’s editor-in-chief Jennifer Lyn Parsons wrote about a new fantasy-romance comic in her post “Sleepless, but this isn’t Seattle” as well as offered a powerful homage to LSQ’s patron saint Ursula Le Guin in “We Are Volcanoes.”
- On Wednesday, new blogger Christina “DZA” Marie broke down what’s wrong with the strong female character trope in her post “We Need to Destroy the ‘Strong Female Character.'”
- On Thursday, we posted an interview with author T. D. Walker on her short story “All the Songs the Little Birds Sing” which appears in our current issue of LSQ.
- And on Friday, blogger and LSQ assistant editor Cathrin Hagey returns to her regular column “What’s in a Fairy Tale?” to talk giants.
