And I'm Pretty Sure You're Not, Either
You are my writer hero. Just sayin.
Yes to everything in this post! We need a new creative paradigm!
Very timely. I am reviewing a new book on fan girls that acts as a companion piece to Russo’s celluloid Closet. It covers 1890s through the Great War and a little beyond. It is about the homosocial and homoerotic content of movies seen through the eyes of adolescent girls of the period and their diaries, scrapbooks, picture collections and fan letters. Early Branding by Hollywood Moguls to sell products worn by the stars. And we have the Met Gala and LVMH leading a similar influencer charge. Resistance seems pretty futile as the Borg would say and with AI even more so for those of us who eke out an income from our honest writing. All I can say is it’s a calling and something inexplicable keeps us keeping on. Lord knows it’s not the money.
