#186. Freak Out

Sort of freaked out at work and bought the four remaining copies of my book, sick from a number of things, some related to the book, some related to reasons why the economy stinks so much (read: management culture, or if you will, Dilbert). Anyway, much as part of the reason I eventually quit Paperback Reader, I got tired of the poor treatment the book got in the store, either by staff or perhaps in a final twist, by some random customer (though I doubt it).

Still excited for next month so I can get to work on the story that's going to blow the lid on my philosophy once and for all, though the spate of poetry over the past year certainly did a good job getting most of it across. Yay!

#185. ROH, Wrestling, Creative Directions

Just checkin' in. I meant to write here about the Ring of Honor 'Best in the World' DVD I got a few weeks back, along with the Mr. Perfect retrospective. On the weekend, I got 2003's Bad Blood, the one with Goldberg-Jericho, but more importantly, the first time Ric Flair and Shawn Michaels squared off. Seriously, I don't know why that match isn't more famous. Even granting the knocked off ending, it's probably better than this year's WrestleMania retirement match, except for that ending.

I figured out today that I'm doing NaNo again this year, after the skip that happened last year for various reasons. I've got a new story, a lightning bolt if I must say, that I'm pretty excited about. Along with the Wounded Knee script, the myspace Permanent Interlude, and the latest Star Trek story, I'd say I'm in fairly good creative shape at the moment. Momentum! Hopefully! I also figured out a new angle on the Peter Pan sequel I've been mulling over for the past few years, an important facte that redefines the whole project, gives it a center, but essentially sticks with the same theme I'd been playing with. If you liked Spielberg's Hook, it would make sense to you.
