November 2010 Preview

At the beginning of every month, I’ll post a brief preview of what’s to come.  Here’s my first glimpse of topics I plan to address in the month of November.

Heiress to the Throne? – The most recent episode of TCW centered around three female characters – Senator Padmé Amidala, Jedi Ahsoka Tano, and bounty hunter Aurra Sing. “Assassins” was written by The Maker’s daughter, Katie Lucas, and is a must-see episode. The wonderfully crafted story offers a new hope that the Star Wars universe has found an inspired champion with a fangirl’s heart.

Does Star Wars give Yaddle? – Current trends in the book and movie industry have been slow to adjust to the needs of fangirls in particular. FANgirl will explore the problem with the status quo.

NaNoWriMo – National Novel Writer’s Month kicks off today. You can turn here to look for encouragement or just to shout at your lazy, uninspired muse. FANgirl blog will offer some quick exercises that work to spur on the creative flow.

Why do fangirls love the Imperial Knights? – They’re Force-users and Imperials, and exactly what some fangirls have been looking for. In a recent discussion with Jan Duursema at Celebration V, it became apparent to me that those in charge may not even realize why fangirls love Imperial Knights so much.
