|04:13 pm - A link and an update|
First off, for people on my flist who aren't on the real_numb3rs community: a brand-new Numb3rs promo, a take-off on the Mac/PC ads. Adorable. I can't wait for a new ep. April 4th!
I was just looking through my "writing" and "my fics" tags, and realized that I haven't posted a writing update in....several weeks, which might be some kind of record for me. At least in the fall I would post somewhat regularly to bemoan the lack of progress I was making.
Original stuff, including spec scripts:
--My CSI spec is still in rewrite; specifically, over the past week I finally started to make progress in firming up the backstory for the original characters, which I needed to do so I can fill in some plot holes and restructure the narrative line. I know what I want to do, where I need it to go, it's just figuring out the details that's killing me. But I've pushed past the block I had, so that's good.
--Next up is reworking my screenplay (murder mystery set at a fan convention). I need to get on that, because Hollywood is finally realizing that fandom is a genuine subculture, and it's starting to show up on TV and in films.
--A Supernatural WIP (not posted anywhere, because I write crappy drafts and rewrite substantially), which sarcasticval and feliciakw are stalking me about constantly. I'm 3 scenes in, which has to be less than 15% of the entire story. Might even be, say, 5%. But it's a cool idea, set in season 2, and I'd like to finish it when I have time.
--Eeeep! I signed up to both remix and be remixed in remixthedrabble. Those are due on April 1, so I need to spend an hour or two tomorrow finding a story to remix. (I'm thrilled with my assigned person, though, so that's good.)
--I have a Numb3rs short, Megan & Colby post-"Trust Metric," that's been in the works for months. Right now I'm working out a snag and waiting for a second-opinion beta to come in.
I've been so massively busy that everything else has been put on indefinite hold. This is a sad thing, but there's only so much time in my day.
Happy Easter to those who are ahead of me in Time! Christ is risen!

I don't know what you're talking about. *whistles innocently*
Also, every time I click on your "light a candle" comment link my brain automatically supplies lyrics from "It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)". I assume that's not what you were going for, but I can't resist the siren call of R.E.M.
LOL. I like that song, although you're right and it's not quite what I was going for.
Oh, erg. Your beta will be there Monday night or sooner, so sorry.
Well, I didn't want to push when I knew you were under the weather, but now you're posting again and so on, so... ;-)
(btw, THANK YOU again for posting that awesome promo link. That made my day. *pets Don and Charlie*)
Oh, writing's good, too. Especially writing about Supernatural. Supernatural!
(Look what you've done to meeee!)
(i bet you're reading fic right now. whoo! *g*)
