This one time at Writer's Camp…
I hope you exercised your right to vote today.
I’m going “offline” this Thursday for five days, lasting until Tuesday-ish. I’ll be around, but the blog will suffer, since I’m going to be “offline”. Yes, I quoted that on purpose. I’ll be looking in but not participating. Though to be fair, that’s about all I do these days anyway. I just don’t seem to have any time…
I’m still laughing at some of the dialogue in Revolutions, but I have to admit that it’s getting a little better. We have a new villain in play, one whose agenda is different than “I’m the strong man who wants to run everything”. A more “complex” villain, as it were. Hopefully we’ll get past the creep factor and he’ll become our own Mayor. On the other hand, maybe creepy is what this show needs. It definitely needs something (oh, and thank you for giving Miles a slight sense of humor. You can’t have an anti-hero without some sarcastic humor).
Also: I’m very, very glad that they stopped writing Charlie like she’s some little girl who just discovered that the Tooth Fairy isn’t real. I understand that they want her to be a strong heroine, but they’re primarily succeeding in making her a clueless nOOb in a CoD4 death match. This is a girl who has survived 15 years without the power on, right? Why the hell does the militia and horrible conditions in the world surprise her?
I haven’t started writing a post-apocalyptic novel yet. Don’t worry, I will eventually. You know, once the genre has been whipped like a dead horse and people start writing the vampire/steampunk/post-apocalyptic/zombie/romance-comedy crossover.
…you know what? Somebody out there would read it.
