Film at eleven. (sorry.)
This isn't going to be an overly long post, and thank GOD it's not another rant. I'm as tired of those as you probably are. I don't know, maybe you're an Angry Young Man™ and just eat that sort of thing up. Moving on... I wanted to let the wider internets know that lately I have been doing a lot of simultaneous side projects which will all likely hinder each other from being completed. That's complete honesty right there; where else can you find that on a daily basis? Certainly not here. *eyeshift*
The latest of these is a collaborative project codenamed "Shade Pilgrim Vs. The World". Rest assured, Mr. O'Malley, that will not be the final name of the book - which it is, yes, a book. A longtime friend and I are taking a shot at co-authoring; if we get anywhere with this it will be her first book and my fourth (if I decide to count it as one of mine; the lion's share of the creativity and source material are hers, I'm just spit-polishing). Watch this space for further developments (if there are any - FINGERS CROSSED).
Also, I suppose you deserve an update on the status of Accelerati. Well, what can I tell you? When you pick a graduate student to be your editor and ask them to give your book its Final Once-Over right in the middle of final exams, this is what one calls "shooting oneself in the foot". It will see the light of day, and most likely in June or July. There's no real blame or anything to be angry about, either on my end or anyone else's... it's just one of life's little delays that sometimes happens. Cheer up, it'll be okay.
Lastly, I have drawn one or two more pages of the Wellspring graphic novel, cranked out some random doodles over at my deviantArt profile, and
squandered spent a lot of time playing DC Universe Online, which is highly addictive and FREE! (yes, they do constantly try to get you to buy this expansion pack or that upgraded feature, but hey, at least they don't require payment *cough*Blizzard*cough*). There are also several IRL problems hovering around me like bats who think I smell like a tasty moth. Which I might. I haven't done a lot of moth-sniffing.
Anyway, if you've been waiting for me to hurry up and get some new stuff out there DANG IT, hopefully you'll continue to bear with me; I promise we'll get there. We will! Seriously!
