“I love that she’s unapologetically badass. There’s no back-story trying to explain something horrible that happened to her that explains who she is. No, that’s just who she is. She just is this person; no explanation needed. Just like men—when a male character comes on screen and is a badass, you just accept it. And I’m hoping that’s what fans do with Rosa. She is who she is and she just doesn’t give a shit.”- Stephanie Beatriz on her character, Rosa Diaz, in Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I may need to watch this.

One of the few shows I’m actually actively watching, and it’s actually a family show.

Yes, you should watch this. Diverse cast, non-traditional roles, humor from character, not from cliché.

My opinion, of course; YMMV.

I wasn’t sure I was going to make it with this show. The first couple of episodes were very rough. But it seems to have found its groove, and I find myself laughing more as the season has progressed.

And Stephanie’s character is my absolute favorite, followed closely by Andre Braugher’s.

5 questions to ask yourself when writing your novel.


Ask questions, take notes, and outline.

1.  What does your protagonist want?
2.  What happens if your protagonist doesn’t get what he/she wants?
3.  What’s standing in his/her way?
4.  How is your protagonist different at the end of the book?
5.  Why does your reader care?


Just putting this here for future reference.
