Follow Friday on the Blog: Rose B. Fischer

If you’re looking for a blog to follow, you can’t do better than Rose B. Fischer. If you follow her, you will not regret it. She’s an experienced blogger with lots of interests, and she shares my view that the be best Internet is an Internet that runs on respect. Just read:

So,  you’ll find all sorts of things here: social commentary, reviews, roselogowriting tips, and anything else I happen to be interested in at the moment.

I have a standing policy of positivity. My posts are meant to be informative, entertaining, and to promote respectful discussion.  I write about things I like, things I support, or things I’ve learned that might be useful to others.  I won’t make a post specifically to rant, disagree, or list off reasons I don’t like Twilight.

Sounds like a blog you want to keep up with, right? Don’t stop reading. It gets better. Rose has a page that explains what Dune and Narnia mean to her, tells you things about her life, and gives you three ways to contact her with ideas.  It’s one of the coolest blog pages I’ve ever encountered.

Rose thinks and writes about a lot of things. You’ll have to explore her blog to find all the goodness, because the rest of this post is about one project. Rose has put a lot of effort into thinking about and improving the way we represent people with disabilities in our art. I’m thoroughly behind it and doing my best to help it along. Here’s how it started.

Rose wrote a 14-part interactive series on the representation of people with disabilities in pop culture. She started it in February. I’ve read every word of it, and some of it twice. And she’s made it clear that she’s happy to help writers who are struggling to portray characters with disabilities in a real way figure out how to do that.

Rose and I are banging our heads together and trying to figure out how to start a discussion about improving the representation of people with disabilities in media. We’d love for you to join that discussion.

If you enjoy Sourcerer and Part Time Monster, there’s no doubt in my mind that you will enjoy Rose’s blog just as much.

  1. Looking fwd to checking it out in depth! I am a neurological physical therapist by training, and writer at heart. I’ve been turning over ideas for an MG novel featuring a main character who sustains a brain injury for quite a while now – looks like Rose’s thoughtful posts will be a big help and inspiration!

    • You’re welcome 🙂

      I’m glad I wasn’t able to do the Follow Friday last week now. This one is way better than what I would have done if we hadn’t been talking about your series all week.
