NanoJourno Update: Day 30

  Who has two thumbs, speaks limited German and IS DONE?!   Ja! Ich bin ein berliner!   I’m done, I’m through I’m finished. I was actually finished yesterday but spent a chunk of today doing extra bonus golden time pickup work which is now done and I’m…   Decks clear Sky wide   I […]

NanoJourno Update: Day 29

  Four weeks ago I sat down and worked out a plan. I was going to polish up the Pseudopod outros for an e-book, chase up each and every GenCon and Thought Bubble contat and honor each verbal commitment for a review or interview and then and only then, if I had time, go through

  Today’s count is…wow. Look Brave The Dark Knight Rises Battleship Sinister The Possession The Muppets The Bourne Legacy   Totalling 9,632 words. From a standing start. I’m CHUFFED:) Also they’re all pretty good. The Muppets one is a little hinky and a couple of the others need an edit pass but I’m pleased. Also…the

NanoJourno Update: Day 27

  Today’s movies were Taken 2, Lockout, Silent Hill: Revelation, Argo and Safehouse. I can only conclude from this that a film about a spatially displaced cursed town inhabited by spies and Ben Affleck may be my ideal story. I’m now at the point where, if I wanted to, I could finish the project in

NanoJourno Update: Day 25

  Today is the 19th anniversary of my best friend’s death. His name was Mark Quinney and everyone called him Coombes for reasons largely lost to the mists of time. For the same reasons, my friend Pete, despite being called Alan, is called Pete. His MUM calls him Pete. He just has an inherently Pete-like

NanoJourno Update: Day 24

  5260 words, all of it is film essays. Specifically film essays on Skyfall, the Total Recall remake and The Sweeney. I’m really pleased with all of them, and once I’ve got five banked I’ll start scheduling them for the site and run them Monday-Friday if possible. I’ve got about 23 other movies to do

Ascent: Titanium Rain

In the last six months I’ve spent something like 48 hours in the air. It’s a bizarre feeling, because essentially long distance air travel is being locked into a pressurised room, thrown tens of thousands of feet above the surface of the Earth at hundreds of miles an hour and told to go to sleep

Ascent: Titanium Rain

NanoJourno Update: Day 23

  Today was going to be catching Here Comes The Boom and End of Watch as a warm up to going back to the movie essays, as well as prepping the Titanium Rain piece for launch and digging into both The Child of Time, the first collection of the 11th Doctor comic stories from Doctor
