1) What type of writing style does my blog and usent writing seem to resemble the most at this point? Critic, reviewer, commentator? Whatever style I am, what books do you think I should look into to focus my style even more while at the same time keeping it conversational and as approachable as I possibly can?
2) Does anyone know what sort of style guide Steve Grimm may have used when he created The Lurker’s Guide to Babylon 5 at http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/lurker.html way back when when that show started? Newsfeeds like the new gilmoregirlsnews.com are fine, but the webshrines, well, when you’ve seen one webshrine, you’ve seen ’em all. So I’m thinking more in a dramaturgical direction with Gg and want to know how Grimm did it. He had the advantage of starting the site early on and following B5 all the way through its development and execution whereas Gg has existed for 6 years already with, really, little in the way of dramaturgical analysis beyond the best reviewers on atgg and certain message boards other than TwoP. Other than that, I’ll have to rely on my own dramaturgy books and past projects from my classes, but I’m still wondering if there’s a style guide or two that I could use to move beyond the usual Watcher’s Guide-style of superficiality that hamstrings the Buffy and Angel guides.
