Sherlock Thoughts

It took me longer, I think, than most fans to fall in the love with the Sherlock series. I liked it, but didn’t love it as much as others I knew. Now I think part of my problem was that I watching episodes in pieces instead of all at once (each episode is an hour and a half). Today, I love it, and here’s my review.

Who is it For?

I feel like Sherlock Holmes, or renditions of him, have been around for so long that either you like Sherlock Holmes, or you don’t. The BBC series differs than the original in that it takes place in modern London, so instead of Watson writing down his adventures with Sherlock on paper, he has a blog, instead of letters, they get messages. If you love crime shows, mystery shows, or the characters and their relationships in previous remakes, you’ll probably like this Sherlock.

Review

What I love most about Sherlock, is the character dynamics. I know, the story revolves around solving cases, which is fun and exciting, and keeps interest, but so many of the characters are so unique (and portrayed so well) that often I find the relationships and characterizations more interesting than the cases. Watching the character arc of Sherlock is what sold my heart on the show. 
Sherlock starts off with having no friends and dismal social skills. He cares about solving crimes more than he does about people. As the series progresses, he gains friends he’s willing to lose his pride for, to die for, and learns to be more sociable and kinder. All of this is because of his relationship with John Watson. The show illustrates the power and influence a positive, real relationship can have on an individual.
John Watson has his own arc. He goes from thinking Sherlock is a heartless, jerk, antihero, to gaining a deeper understanding of him, considering him a best friend, and a hero, in spite of his flaws.
I’m a sucker for that. I’m a sucker for relationships where character’s gain a deep understanding of one another and become better people because of it, especially when the relationship has flaws and imperfections.

Then, there’s the humor. We get to watch the day-to-day or case-to-case humor of solving crimes with a genius sociopath, someone who keeps body parts in the refrigerator and shows up to Buckingham Palace in nothing but a sheet. We get to see Sherlock with his parents, who are utterly “ordinary” and hear him bicker with his brother about who is more brilliant and even see him and Watson try to solve a case while drunk after Watson’s bachelor party. We get the funny one-liners along with the run-on jokes of people assuming he and Watson are gay (because Sherlock is antisocial and for the first time has someone, a man, living with him).

But it goes beyond that. In a few subtle ways, the show makes fun of the history of Sherlock Holmes. You know the trademark hat Sherlock wears? Everyone’s seen it. The original Sherlock Holmes never wore that hat; it was picked up in subsequent remakes, yet everyone associates it with Sherlock Holmes. BBC makes fun of that by having their Sherlock happen to grab that hat and put it on just before his picture is taken by the press, so now the public assumes he wears the hat all the time, but he doesn’t. They’re making fun of us. We think the original Sherlock wore that hat all the time too.
So while BBC teases the Sherlock Holmes scholars, it also teases the contemporary fans. I’ve heard Holmes fans daydream of Sherlock and Watson actually getting together, for example, so the series plays on the fact that people assume they’re gay when their not. Then there are fans and fan clubs that pop up on the show too.
It’s not like I’m holding my side laughing my head off through the entire episode every episode, but the humor is definitely there and it’s fun and clever and I do usually laugh a few times each episode.
Alright, finally I’m to the cases, the plot. I haven’t actually read the original Sherlock Holmes, but I’m somewhat familiar with it. I know that the BBC series actually plays off the original series by Sir Arthur Canon Doyle, and BBC updates the titles, so instead of “A Study in Scarlet,” the episode is called “A Study in Pink,” so that’s fun. What I’ve noticed and enjoyed about the cases is that often several mysteries come up that seem unrelated, and, surprise, Sherlock figures out how some of the most obscure scenarios—those that seem totally unrelated to the main case—are part of the bigger mystery. And of course, one aspect that draws me to the cases is that, for the most part, Sherlock simply notices mundane things that others overlooked to solve the mystery. That’s always cool to me.
You can find Sherlock on Netflix, Amazon, and Vudu. Season three aired earlier this year, and we have to wait two years for the next season. Yikes.
Thanks to Shallee and my friend Jenica for recommending the series to me.
A Toast to the Closet Writers

Many writers, at some point or another, have been closet writers—they don’t tell anyone they write, that they want to write, or that they are actually writing. If you find yourself in this situation, you’re normal.

Writing can be very personal, like our story and characters are our own children. Or maybe you’re a closet writer because you fear what others will think about you if they saw what you wrote, or because you fear you aren’t good enough. Or maybe, you’re just not ready to share your work yet.

Some of the best writers have been closet writers, and there are wonderful perks to being one.

So here is a toast to closet writers.

Successful Closet Writers

New York Times bestselling author David Farland admits to being a closet writer as a teenager. He’d hide his manuscript, fearing someone would find it. Now he has over 50 books in print (several of which have won awards), has worked in the movie and video game businesses, and is also a writing instructor.

But there are different levels of being a closet writer. Perhaps you aren’t a full-fledged one.

While I don’t know if Rowling actually kept the fact she wrote a secret, she kept what she was writing secret. She never even told her mother about Harry Potter. And even after publication, she was still somewhat of a closet writer: she showed no one her manuscripts. The first person to read them was her editor.

The Perks of being a Closet Writer

If you are a closet writer, you have something beautiful.

As a closet writer, you can write what you want without pressure. It’s your story. It’s your world. No one else’s. People aren’t bugging you about what you are writing, asking personal questions about writing, or asking “When’s that book of yours going to be on the shelves?” You can set your own pace. If you want, you can write entirely for yourself and forget all about the audience. You can forget about marketing and pitching to a publisher. You can write whatever you want, however you want.

Outlets for a Closet Writer’s Writings (Or the Writing Hobbyist)

If you’re a closet writer or a hobby writer, and you still want readers, but without the professional pressure, you can upload your novel, chapter by chapter, onto a social writing site.

FictionPress.com
WattPad.com
Mibba.com
StoryWrite.com
Figment.com
Booksie.com

and, if you’re a closet fanfiction writer, many of these sites allow fanfiction, but you can also try FanFiction.net

Note, however, that I don’t recommend doing this if you actually want to take that same book to a traditional publisher. But if writing is more casual for you, these sites can be great. I know because I spent a lot of time on one of them as a teenager.

I recommend using a pen name like Wayne Hardy or some cool username like CloakWolfThirty, so, if you ever do decide to actually go serious with writing, people (and pros) won’t google you and find all your interactions and stories uploaded there. I’m sure some people would argue against my advice, but that’s just mine. The stuff I uploaded as a teenager was pretty craptastic in some ways (I can see now). I don’t want to be “known” for it.

Here are the perks of these sites: you can get readers and feedback (and from people you don’t know personally). It feels good to have someone eager to read the next chapter of your story. And if you aren’t a pro writer, don’t sweat it. Most of the people on there aren’t. If you are, you’ll find praise. Some of these sites even hold writing contests.

I would like to talk about something that is a huge problem In the world these days. Insulting people on the internet, see it wasn’t every funny and your not cool for doing it and there’s really no point to it at all! The result is teenager’s killing them selves, sure we could go on and on about..

My follower asked me to reblog this because it’s pretty important to him. I hesitated because the title had the f-word, and I’m not really into f-words, but the message had a good point, so here it is. I hope you don’t mind I revamped the title.

I have to agree that insulting anyone is kind of a problem, and that we need to avoid cyber-bullying.

Your Writing Eye



If you want to be great at writing, you have to do more than just write. You have to develop an “eye” for it. If you aren’t developing an eye for it, you’re not progressing very far. You can’t become a better storyteller if you can’t see how to. Right?

Your writing eye should always be ahead of your writing abilities. Read that sentence again: Your writing eye should always be ahead of your writing abilities. Why? Because that’s how you learn and grow as a writer! If your eye is always ahead of your abilities, you always have something to strive for. If it’s not, you can’t improve your storytelling abilities.

Whether you’re a beginning writer or a seasoned one, there is always more to learn.

Here are three ways to strengthen your eye for writing.


  1. Read books, blogs, or listen to podcasts on writing from professionals.
  2. Read and watch fiction, not just as an audience member, but as a writer. Pull the story apart and see how its parts are working together. Look at how the writer created the story.
  3. Get personal guidance and direction on your writing. Have a professional, a writing instructor, or a peer critique your work. Let them tell you what you can improve on.
Often, when I’m learning about writing from a book or sometimes a professional, I find myself disagreeing with what they say. That’s okay. It still broadens my mind. And you know what? It might take months but I almost alwayscome around to agreeing with them eventually. I just didn’t fully understand them or didn’t have enough experience to get it the first time. So if you disagree with some writing advice, don’t worry, just listen and keep going. It will help you form your own opinion.

It’s likely you’ll go through periods where your writing eye is way ahead of your abilities. That’s where I am right now. I understand and “see” certain aspects of storytelling, but I’m not experienced enough to be able to execute them as well. Don’t get discouraged. Keep trying and eventually you’ll get there. Like right now, for me, I’m just starting to develop an eye for action scenes. Before, I didn’t have a clue what made a good action scene and what made a bad one. Now, it’s starting to click with me. But I can’t yet write what I’m beginning to understand.

Patience is often a cure for frustration.
