This post is basically a collection of little updates on different projects I've got on the go.
Megastropulodon, the TV Series version: I've hit writer's block with the first draft for the closing episode. Written a couple of dozen words in the last fortnight, if that. Getting annoying. It's not that I don't know what I want to happen, it's just that it doesn't want to happen on the page.
The Root Hill video: I re-did the intertitle graphics this morning, as I wasn't happy with the way they'd turned out when I did them the first time a few days ago. New version is much better. Video definitely getting there now.
My surreal semi-untitled story about a failed packet-mix salesman: going well, albeit sporadically. Wrote chapters 7 and 8 on Tuesday, which took the word count into five figures. Chapter 8 ends with one of the most random sentences ever - and it's only 3 words long, so its randomness-per-word ratio is through the roof. I do have a plan for how to start Chapter 9, which will make some sense of that random sentence, and I'm looking forward to penning it. Just haven't got round to it yet. I could email you the book so far if you ask nicely =]
Alien President: most of you probably haven't heard of this one yet. Last time I saw Tim, back in October, I asked the random question (probably influenced by sleep deprivation): "What if George Darlan became the next president of the USA?" Darlan, for those not in the know, is a notorious extraterrestrial inventor and self-proclaimed philanthropist, from Tim's webcomic Brothers in Shells. Tim seemed rather taken with the suggestion, and I've started writing a short webcomic series dealing with this bizarre hypothetical scenario. I've finished 8 episodes so far, with scripts written for quite a few more, and I'm planning to start posting the series online next week.
'The Answers': coming along nicely. Will hopefully be on here by the end of the week.
Um... yeah. I think that just about covers everything!
