At LOCUS, Kameron Hurley shares “What I’ve Learned About Being a Writer.”
You will fail more than you succeed. You will remember the failures more often than the successes.
The people who believe in you now will believe in you always. Get rid of everyone else.
Readers will love your work. They will think this means they love you. They will be wrong, but do not correct them. You will no longer be yourself when you’re among readers, but an amalgamation of their perceptions of you based on your work and the pixels that make up your face. After a while, even your oldest friends will see you this way.
Pick one person you can be yourself with. It will be the person who doesn’t live-tweet your breakdown.
If you’re very, very lucky, people will hate you. They will hate you for the same reason others love you. You will realize this is preferable to indifference.
For DEN OF GEEK, David S.E. Zapanta shares the first full length trailer for Hap and Leonard: The Two-Bear Mambo.
I guess it should be no surprise that an anything-goes show like SundanceTV’s Hap and Leonard could cram so much peril and mayhem into a single one-minute trailer for its new season, The Two-Bear Mambo. Based on the book of the same name by bestselling author Joe R. Lansdale, season 3 looks to have all the hallmarks of what makes this show such a standout—namely quirky but dangerous characters, healthy doses of violence and dark humor, and the temerity to address racism in its ugliest forms. And all of this is seen through the lens of the lifelong friendship between Hap Collins (the excellent James Purefoy) and Leonard Pine (the equally excellent Michael Kenneth Williams).
Here’s the latest trailer for Annihilation, the film based on the first novel in Jeff VanderMeer’s Southern Reach trilogy.
