The Revision of an Old Story

Well, if I’ve been missing in action for a little while, at least it’s because I’m writing. I finally set a deadline for myself with Gold Valley – the newest rewrite must be finished by June 14th so that I can begin writing a script I’ve been slacking on for several months. It’s a collaboration … Continue reading

In Which Heroes Has Sucked Out My Brain

**Spoilers ahead** It’s not even well written. The characters and their actions are contrived so much so often that I find myself rolling my eyes. There are so many things that do not make sense, that do not have reason. My ability to suspend disbelief has been pushed to it’s limit. And yet. There is … Continue reading

We still don’t have electricity, or kitchen appliances, but we just won’t talk about that… I’m going … Continue reading

In Which the Velvet Is Tipped

Yes, I am talking about the BBC film adaptation of Sarah Waters’ novel Tipping the Velvet (which is  a slang term for oral sex performed on a girl), the story of Nan Astley, a lesbian in Victorian England. I watched the three part mini series with my boyfriend the other night as part of some … Continue reading

Dreaming of the Apocalypse

I’ve been dreaming about the end of the world. Usually when I dream about the Apocalypse there are zombies, or robots, or I’m a part of a small colony fighting for land. In this last dream, there were no supernatural beings, no demons, no monsters. There was only rain and a strange, deep sense of … Continue reading
