chugging along  
There's a blackbird with a very orange beak and a great big fat worm in his beak sitting in the green green grass of the back yard. I've seen him here before; we must have a nice wormy back yard.

I got through writing out the line edits and got half of them typed into the manuscript, which isn't as far as I wanted to get but it's after 9 and I've been at the computer most of the day, so sod it. I've made a few moderate changes to the text besides that, nothing big so far. I started at the beginning for the line edits, so I haven't even tried dealing with the end yet, and ... well. Realistically that'll be Friday's job, so hopefully I'll figure out what to *do* with it before then. In as far as I've gotten, well, there are places where I want to beat my head on the wall. There are places where I'd like to beat someone else's head on the wall. There's at least one place where I thought I was being really clever and apparently everybody's missed the cleverness, so I'm going to have to figure out if I'm satisfied with what they think I'm doing or try to do it better so it's what I'm *trying* to do. (I can tell you already I'm not satisfied. Dammit.) I have just got...*nghghgh*

Sorry for all the bitching. This is me letting off steam. I'm full of hate and just want it to be DONE, and in a few days it will be and I'll...start bitching about something else, no doubt. :)

On a totally non-bitchy note, though, The Dresden Files has been picked up for 11 episodes before the backdoor pilot's even been aired. GO JIM! *beam* *beams and beams and beams*

I'm going all squee at Hans Beimler and Robert (Hewitt) Wolfe being exec producers. Yay, DS9 alumni! *beambeambeam*

*offers chocolate cookies* Venting is perfectly acceptable, and you are forgiven. I wish there was something more useful I could do to help, so instead I will offer virtual support. :)

Sometimes I'm sad that there's an ocean between us. This would be NOT one of those times. :)


Maybe you should take a break and ponder getting your agent to work on the Lifetime Original Series, The Strongbox Chronicles. ;)

It's a specific someone else. It's not you. It's not, however, politic to say who. :)

From your lips to God's ears, man. :)

Wait just a sec! You mean there's crap going on around this planet that isn't about ME? Who authorized that?!! I'm gonna have to put a stop to it right now! :)

So, how long before we start the Walker Papers casting thread?

$20 bucks says Kit already has it cast.
Brianlogrusboy on May 23rd, 2006 11:32 pm (UTC)
I'm sure she does. I want to watch her whimper when we get it wrong!

So are we talking Kathy Bates for Jo and Freddie Prince Jr. for Gary wrong?

Actually, one of my favorite games is to cast someone who's so wrong but still so right. My very favorite ever (sadly, not mine) was for the X-Men movie...

Storm, played by RuPaul!

Wrong, but fabulous!

All I can say is that when RuPaul entered a scene, you'd *know* Storm grew up being worshipped. ;)

Oh! I forgot to tell you! I got a package yesterday. *dancie*

Oh yay! I was wondering if it'd gotten there yet. :)
