Writers Assemble! Part Two
Doug: Before getting too far, I just want to say again how thrilled we are to have the quality of guest writing grace this space. Thus far Mikes W. and S. have certainly held their own, and hasn't Edo provided a little stretching to the fare normally reviewed around here! I think you'll all be excited on Monday to see what Dr. Oyola has in store for you, as well. So many, many thanks and huge kudos to everyone who's "in" to this point. You are appreciated.
Doug: I've long thought about today's proposal, and maybe it's an idea familiar to others. My local newspaper runs a periodic feature called "The 100-Word Review"; there are also websites dedicated to such things. The object of choice in our paper is generally a record album, but I've thought for months that the subject could be anything. Why not an episode of a TV show? A comic book story? A toy? A game? A film? A song? See -- the possibilities are vast. I don't know if this is easy or not -- never attempted it myself. But I figured I'd toss this out, as maybe we have some readers who have been thinking about dipping their toe in the BAB-Guest-Writer-water and were feeling a little nervous about it. Why not try this? Talk about starting small!
Doug: If any of our readers are interested, just drop us an email at our BAB address -- over on the sidebar. We'll get right back to you and begin whatever process needs to begin! You'll find it's all rather painless. Good luck!
