Helmed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck (the directing duo behind It's Kind of a Funny Story and Mississippi Grind), the 1990s-set film will be less of an origin story than what we've seen from most Marvel solo projects that introduce us to a character for the first time.

The Literary Blogging Community

The moment I crossed the threshold and entered the literary online community, my mind was instantly blown away! I was a kid with a sugar addiction, unleashed in a new world with all my favourite and yet to be discovered favourite treats.

The online literary community is gigantic and one of the most fabulous thing about it, is we're a community who take pride in helping one and another, yes there are always the bad eggs within every community, but there is always somebody out there who would gladly guide, help and uplift you and your blog, trust me.

The community is made up of various groups of people, yes it's all segmented but we all need each other for our structure to work. Authors, publishers, readers, literary bloggers, blog tour hosts, bookstores employees, librarians, literary journalists, literary social sites, literary items creators etc. are just the kind of the people you'll come across when you're part of the online literary community as it is majorly made up of these groups of people and more I may have unknowingly left out.

So how do you come across these people? By exploring and interacting. Interaction is the most important thing about having a wonderful experience, everyone is shy, but if nobody makes a move, we'll all be alone, so if you admire or like something, don't be afraid to voice it out and let the person behind it know, I've noticed that literary people return the love they have been shown own by someone. I know I do it.

All the popular social media sites are filled with literary people, take Instagram for example, we've made our own little world and have a trademark name #Bookstagram, in today's online world hashtags are very important because it allows you to find like-minded people and that's how you start getting in deep with the community. Twitter also has its a bookish community, which is very informative and life-changing. Pinterest is also infested with contents and will allow you to find so many blogs and content your mind will explode, if you ever need inspiration, Pinterest is key, I'm so thankful for all the people, who take their time to put stuff on Pinterest, hence making the lives of many people like me easier.

I love WordPress Reader because it allows me to not only follow blogs but also hashtags, which allows me to encounter new people within the community and spread love all around, as it makes it so much easier to read posts other literary bloggers online. There are also free literary blogging courses, memes, tags and awards that bring people together, it's also a great way to start off and make friends, especially as a new blogger. Just search for them and you'll find them.

Note: Using Hashtags makes your post a lot more visible in a sea filled with billions of content.

The online literary community is very important, because being online and alone at that is boring, without having anyone to converse or see what you put out is very soul-crushing, but if you involve yourself within the community, interact with others and be a good upholding member, it won't be so. And because the online community is so huge and diverse, there's no way you won't stumble on new knowledge, try out new books and things, meet and love people from different backgrounds than yours or even make friends with people in your very town, state or country and many other benefits, that only readers who have broken into the online space can enjoy (I mean there's always one event, giveaway, price slashes, discounts, coupons or the other out for grabs).
