By and large, I am far too busy to be writing for pleasure these days. It’s a good problem to have, in that I have plenty of assignments to keep me busy. But it also means seeds of essays often go unwatered as the weeks go by.
Luckily, I had just enough time, in addition to a tremendous amount of interest, to help my friend Alyssa Rosenberg with her virtual round table discussion on ways to move past the male anti-hero as the default character around which to build a show. With that thought floated out to me, one character instantly came to mind, one that I’ve rarely written about but always admired: Cordelia Chase.
To learn why I chose her, head over to Alyssa’s little slice of the interwebs and see what I had to say.
