Every day I don't man up and do this full time is another day closer to my grave I'm going to regret.
I re-tweeted it because it made me think. And I thought to myself that while in the years since I first took Ring of Fire from an award-winning potential novel through so many revisions and rewrites that I'm not sure it's that same book anymore, I no longer have anything that's immediately "submission-able." But on the other hand, I have a great many stories I have told in the same universe, and perhaps it's time (and in the right time) to start up a real writer's blog where I can post said stories and perhaps build up even a tiny audience so I have that to add when Ring of Fire is once again in a state where I feel I can submit it to a real publisher. So I'm kind of looking at blog sites and trying to decide which one I can afford and which one might be good for what I'd do; and maybe if I did have a place like this, I'd actually produce MORE, especially if I have an audience, even a small one. (One person constitutes an audience.)
Pixar v. Dreamworks
If Summer Movie posters told the truth (the lovely and snarky queenofattolia tweeted that one, and it gave me a laugh).
And last, but not least: Inappropriate humor.
This afternoon we watched Star Trek: Nemesis for the first time. I've put off watching it because of the enormous amount of bad press it got, but after seeing it, I was struck with a mild curiosity. Why is this movie so reviled? It's not as bad as some Star Trek movies (Lord, no); it's not the best, certainly, but it's a fairly inoffensive action-packed long episode of The Next Generation with a little humor and some good solid Picard-As-Action-Hero bits. Certainly, it's no Wrath of Khan, but no Star Trek movie yet has been. It would have been BETTER if James Marsters had gotten the Picard-clone role, but other than that? Eh, not a wasted afternoon, at least. I might have been madder if I'd seen it in the theatres, I guess.
This cat really can sleep anywhere, any way...
