Miscellany

A few things:

1) I just watched the series premiere of Castle (yes, I'm slow) and -- LOVE! LOVE. I hadn't heard too many rave reviews of it so I wasn't in a hurry to check it out but -- LOVE.

2) I also just watched (David Hewlett's part in) Century Hotel. Anyone have any Century Hotel DH fic to share? Yes? *bats lashes*

3) Today marks the end of craziness for me, or at least a serious tapering-down. I was kind of vaguely considering doing SGA Big Bang and then realized I kind of, oops, missed the deadline by about 10 minutes and oh well. I didn't want to sign up and then check out again like I did in 2007. Still, maybe I shall do it sort of on my own-like, sans the pressure of capital-P Participation. Does anyone out there in SGA-land want to lower-case-c cheerlead or (more likely) lower-case-b bully me into finishing? More importantly, does anyone have an idea for a story they've been dying to read because I'm kind of creatively tapped at the moment.

4) I just finished rereading Omiai for the first time since, well, pretty much since I wrote it. It was nice -- it's been five years (DEAR GOD, REALLY?) which is enough time to have a pleasant critical distance. The parts that were weak didn't make me want to claw my eyes out, just to smile at my former writerly self, and the parts I thought were strong were kind of bland, but it was such a fun exercise to write that novel with the flist support and the plottiness and all its attendant angst. (For those of you who weren't around back then, or weren't in SV, Omiai is a 100,000 word novel that I cranked out in nearly daily installments -- I KNOW -- over about four months.) Anyway, I feel like my writing has changed quite a bit since then. I'm striving to reach true "show, don't tell" mastery but I'm not there yet. Still, I think I've come some way from the time when I could shamelessly have my protagonist expound on his emotions (tearily) for paragraphs at a time.

5) There is no 5.

6) I really need to go and shower now. MWAH, flist.
