This was a stressful week, hence why I deviated from my normal posting schedule. I think I managed to bring out some pretty cool material, though, and I hope you enjoyed it. If you missed anything, here it is again.
ANNE OF GREEN GABLES: A REVIEW
I greatly enjoyed reading through Anne of Green Gables again, and I’m looking forward to working my way through the other books soon. I don’t generally review children’s books, but this one is so significant to me that I couldn’t ignore it.
38 BOOKS EVERY SOUTHERN WOMAN SHOULD READ
This is my first assignment piece for Bustle, and I have to say, I love working under assignment. It definitely takes away a lot of the pressure to come up with new ideas, and that’s a godsend during a week like this one. So check out my list and let me know if and how yours differs.
FLIBANSERIN: DO WOMEN NEED A PILL FOR DESIRE?
The flibanserin issue intrigued me from the very beginning. Here was a drug with a spotty history, marketed to women for a condition with a spotty history, as part of a spotty cultural history. I mean, how could I not write this?
FINAL FANTASY VII COMING TO IOS, NO LOVE FOR ANDROID
I cried and did a little dance when I found out about Final Fantasy VII Remake. Unfortunately, the lack of confirmation on an Android port of the PC version dampered the news slightly. Still, as I point out here, Samsung users have hope.
PONYTAIL LINK: A BRIEF HISTORY
Ponytail Link was absent at E3 this year, but that didn’t stop their fans from talking and demanding their presence. This article is a short overview of Link’s androgyny and its place in Legend of Zelda as an institution.
LET YOUR FAVORITE ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK CHARACTER DETERMINE WHICH BOOK YOU SHOULD READ NEXT
I wrote this article after I first applied to Bustle, and I’m so glad they decided to publish it. This was a fun piece to write, although it did require me to spoil some parts of season 3 for myself. Check it out if you love Orange Is the New Black and/or books.
11 FUNNIEST TWEETS FROM E3 2015
I know it will most definitely lost me some cool points to say this, but Rami Ismail tweeted this article (after I tagged him to let him know his tweets made the cut). So you should read it, because the snark is strong with that man.
HOW TO DEVELOP YOUR WRITING SKILLS
I was writing what is now next week’s article when I realized I needed to write this first. Does that happen to anyone else? Let me know if it helped you, and, if it didn’t, how I can help you more.
6 WAYS KEEPING A JOURNAL CAN MAKE YOU A BETTER PERSON
This is another of my Bustle application articles. I’m a latecomer to the journaling game, and I still haven’t completely nailed down my perfect method. However, I do find that keeping a journal makes content sourcing so much easier. How does it help you?
THE RPG MASHUPS THAT WON E3
I’m excited about all three of these games, even though I don’t currently have a console that will play any of them. If anyone needs me, I’ll be playing Super Mario RPG and reveling in the nostalgia.
THE CHINESE ROOM PUBLISHES EMERGENCY PAMPHLETS FOR YOUR SAFETY
Like the RPG mashups I mentioned earlier, I’ve been looking forward to the release of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture, even though I don’t have a PS4 or any plans to purchase one. Now that I see The Chinese Room’s Welcome to Nightvale-esque Station 52 documents, I’m even more impressed.
