There actually isn't one. Or at least not a good one.
Beginning of my week was spent mostly working on a little project that I'll probably be talking about a lot more next week. I've actually got a couple of special things planned for next week, and I encourage people to swing by, and look at some of the new stuff that has cropped up at least partially thanks to Horror Week.
Admittedly, Horror Week is partially the reason I haven't been posting as much. It's been hard to get back in the swing of things after giving up the blog for so long, and honestly I haven't started anything new, or written anything I was comfortable talking about here. I'm hoping to get going again soon, but all told, it's Oscar season, and I've been watching and re-watching a lot of great movies, reading a little more than I have been, and all in response to this family-related thing that's going on. I apologize for being vague -- it's just not really my place to share it in a public forum, but if you're curious you're welcome to ask about it. I think by now, most people who talk to me at any great length probably know.
Been doing a lot of thinking too. "Soul-searching," I believe they call it. It has been as helpful as the bullshit terminology might lead you to think it would be.
I also still am open to some feedback on "Nova" -- I've been working on it again, trying to get it to a twenty-five minute running time, and would be more than happy if someone had suggestions, or just wanted to talk to me about it. I've mentioned before, there's something a little House-like in the way I work... having people to bounce things off of, or just hear what they think might or might not be wrong is helpful. I lost a friend recently who was really good at doing this for me, so I'm looking to fill that position anew, I guess.
Of course, it's also sort of maddening to even think about doing another draft of "Nova." I've done seven [technically eight, if you count the lost -goddammit- Severe Cut], and even I'm pretty pleased with what I've ended up with. Hubristically speaking, I'm kind of terrified I'm making a beautiful woman shorter. Physically shorter. Or, maybe, literary breast-reduction?
Even I think that's kind of sexist. Moving on.
So, any help or thoughts, especially in the next week or so? I would really appreciate that.
And... watch this space. Well, not specifically this one, but the general blog-type-area. Interesting, fun things may be happening come Monday.
Cheers. More soon.
Justin has a new sketch posted over at his blog for the comic [re: Calamity Cash and the Town with No Name]. Really good argument for me checking the reader before making a post here first.
