Characters Writers Can Relate To

As a writer, I like to watch movies and shows that have character that are writing all the time.

Characters Writers Can Relate To
Think Fast Improv

I love movie or shows that have a character that loves to write and/or publishes novels. I am that girl that loves to write and dreams of having my name on the cover of Young Adult Fiction Novels, one day in the future. So, when I find a movie or show that has a writer type character, I get really excited. When I got this idea, remembering where I had seen these type characters became really fuzzy. I searched the internet, but all I found was older movies that I had never seen. That dead end search led me to just look at the characters from my favorite movies and shows. I did not find as many as I thought, but I found some good ones.

Jamie Bartlett

Read It And Weep centers around one 9th grader who accidentally became a published author. What if your diary got turned in for an essay competition and got released to millions of readers. Jamie Bartlett (Kay Panabaker) did not have to imagine because in one week everyone was reading "IS Saves The World".

I love this movie because she wrote a fiction young adult book based on her life. That is my dream and I love watching this throwback Disney Channel movie!

Richard Castle

Castle follows the 12th Precinct in New York City with Detective Beckett (Stana Katic) leading the cases. Richard Castle (Nathan Fillion) writes mystery novels and is looking for his new muse. That leads him to join Beckett's team for crime research for his novels.

I love to sit and watch episode after episode because of Castle's witty sense of humor and writing process. Nonfiction turned into fictional characters and crimes, perfect mystery novels.

Ezra Fitz and Aria Montgomery

Pretty Little Liars is a mystery/drama series that tells the story of five best friends that do not have loose lips when it comes to secrets. From the first episode viewers find out that Ezra Fitz (Ian Harding) and Aria Montgomery (Lucy Hale) share a love for English (writing and reading), which is a huge part of their relationship. The second half of season 6 started the five year time jump, where Aria worked for a publishing company and Ezra was trying to finish a book. All the stuff that happened with the deadlines of more chapters, lead to Aria writing some of them for him. Erza loved the idea of a female voice in his novel so the writing team was created.

This is beyond my favorite series of all time. Aria is my favorite character because I am most like her. Her character started out as writing for just her, to loving painting and photography and now co-writing a novel. Lastly, they are one of my favorite couples.

R.L. Stine

Goosebumps is the scary children's novels that gave us literal goosebumps when we read them. I can't recall reading one but I have watched the movies and an episode of Stine's stories and it is pretty freaky at times. In this movie, the famous author is brought into action and played by the hilarious Jack Black.

I loved this movie because I did not see all the twist coming when I was watching. Imagine if the characters you wrote on the page came to life before your very eyes? One key and one book led to R.L. Stine's monsters coming out for revenge. This movie shows how a writer puts all his or her feelings into the pages of their books and create scary or magical worlds to escape to.

Timothy McGee

NCIS is a lovable crime show that follows Gibbs and his team as they solve military based cases. But did you know there is a writer on the team? Look no farther than Timothy McGee (Sean Murray). In the early seasons, the team discovered that McGee was publishing books under a different names and the characters were based on them.

This part of the series makes me love it even more. McGee is a talented crime writer and I love that he writes on a typewriter.

I hope you all enjoyed this list of incredible characters that just happen to be the writers on their groups.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
