Yeah, I know. Long time no blather. I got a little sidetracked, shall we say. But it's summer, and I'm here, and it's eleventy million steaming degrees outside, and there's nothing on TV, and I saw Prometheus and thought it was meh (although Michael Fassbender is the cutest robot ever), so I'm back with more vague promises about writing! Yay!

Recently I took advantage of being sick to finish a certain monkey-on-my-back story, which infused me with a giddy sense of accomplishment (or maybe it was the meds). Actually, it was good, it felt good, and gave me a sense of closure in a way--I feel as if this is the last fanfic story I'll probably do, that I've brought it all full circle (ending in the fandom I started with), my palate is cleansed. Of course, part of my personal philosophy is "never say never" because never usually comes around and bites you on the ass, and I see photos like this, of Deborah Kerr and Ava Gardner together and think, what if they had a mad crazy affair while filming Night of the Iguana?


No, no, I must resist!

So on the docket is a rewrite of an old thing I posted yonks ago. And I've been making notes on a WW II novel. Baby steps, baby. Baby steps. Any progress I make will be posted here and possibly on a tumblr. I'm not exactly compelled by the wanderlust, but some kind of curiosity or hunger keeps me going creatively.

Ava/Deborah Kerr! I will take it, but the I'd take anything you write.

I was wondering if Prometheus was worth a trip to the movies. Thanks for making my mind up for me.

Thanks! I may reread or rewatch Iguana and see if it takes me anywhere.

[ profile] noir_moll's summation of the film as a hot mess is fairly accurate. Lots of pretty people ane pretty images, but so many plot holes and illogical disappointed me.

You know, you really shouldn't dangle such notions in front of us if you don't want us to badger you into writing it. Because, MY GOD, the possibilities! I mean, you have the main event with Gardner and Kerr. But think of the supporting cast you have to play with! Huston, Burton (and Taylor)and 50 cases of liquor. Did Tennessee Williams ever visit the set, I wonder? The thing practically writes itself!

Prometheus was a hot mess. But its the type of hot mess that I can't stop thinking about, or reading all the analyses regarding, where it went wrong and what it could/should have been.

Did you see this this video review ( about Prometheus? It's pretty funny and spot on.

Heh. Yeah, the Ava/Kerr thing would write would be fun to try. Maybe too much fun!

That review was the first thing my friend e-mailed to me when we started swapping critical vids, articles, and podcasts after seeing the movie last weekend.

apologies if a little off-topic. what program are you using to create e-pub files?

No worries. I'm using Calibre to convert the word or PDF to whatever format.

Hmm, first time I've logged in here for ages and look what I find. Hope you follow this thought.
