12 to Midnight, Movies and TV, Seen on the 'Net

While Waiting for the Draino to Kick In…

I left game night early tonight, since Mrs. Flametoad thought it would be a good idea to dispose of those old flowers down the kitchen sink disposal instead of just putting them in the trash. Needless to say, that didn’t work so well, so I had to pick up some drain cleaner on the way home. While it’s busy digesting the innards of my kitchen sink, let me amuse you.

It seems like I’m starting to develop the habit of talking about stuff at game night then having to post the associated links here for my buds to follow. So without further delay, enjoy Star Trek New Voyages (discovered courtesy of Chuck’s RPG Design blog). New Voyages is a massive, free fan project with buy-in from professional special effects guys and even cast and crew of the original series. While I haven’t watched any of these episodes yet myself, I’m looking forward to doing so. The idea and effort behind it is totally snakes on a plane.

In other news, late last week I turned in the new edition of Bloodlines to the printer and yesterday I got an e-mail the my proof copy would be going out in today’s mail. So hopefully by the end of the week I’ll have a copy in my hot little hands.

Man it sure has been a long road to get this baby solid.

I’ve heard that it’s not a good idea for writers to go back and edit work they’ve done that’s more than a year old. If you’re a good writer who keeps improving in the craft, you see all the things you’d do better and you get mired in rewrites. It would literally be better to take the concept and rewrite the story from scratch.

Now I know that’s true. I made a fair compromise between improvements and getting it done, but it still sucked away a month and a half of my life. Still, I’m satisifed that it’s a pretty good adventure that I’m not ashamed to have my name on. Looking at it, there are structural things I wish I’d done differently, but changing those would mean rewrites too dramatic for the time I had available. Far better to apply that expertise to moving forward new projects than lingering over the old.
