Ever More Writing and TV Watching

While I am not partaking in NaNoWriMo – I tried once a few years ago to no success and original fiction isn’t something I’m really doing those days – I found out about AcWriMo, mostly through Dr. Narelle Lemon’s blog post about it. Since I am working on my book about Women in Science Fiction television, that is the perfect extra motivation to continue my efforts. I already did 2287 words and it is only the very beginning of the month. With how well I am doing, I believe that I will be able to go past my original goal (which was to complete one chapter only). IT is really inspiring to be that productive!

I am still catching up on TV as well, thanks to my new computer station. After finishing Continuum second season, I caught up with another show I had started this summer: Defiance. I wouldn’t say that this is a favorite show of mine, but I think they really developed the universe well over the course of the season – and I still want to try the game out at some point. The visuals are great and I am curious to see how things will unfold in the next season. I also realized that the handful of characters who really kept me invested in the show  are almost all female ones, as the list is the following:

  • Amanda Rosewater
  • Irisa Nyira
  • Joshua Nolan
  • Kenya Rosewater
  • Stahma Tarr

I need to decide  which show I will catch up with next, but right now I decided to make myself suffer while continuing to work on my chapter tonight. I am watching Resident Evil: Retribution. I mean, those movies are certainly not masterpieces and rather horrible, but fun rides. But so far? Holy cow, that’s not even bad at this stage. I don’t know how people could come up with such bad stuff. At least, I’ll be able to say that I’m caught up with the movie franchise, since I never had interest in playing the video games.

To finish on a more positive note, here is my first (and so far only) Hunger Games video. I made it about a year ago, on one of my favorite songs: Senorita by Jean-Patrick Capdevielle, which I had originally vidded twice for Dana Scully from the X-Files (as it is my only case in more than eight years of vidding when I remade a video fully). The Hunger Games one is a Katniss Everdeen tribute.

    I haven’t seen this show Continuum yet. I guess I’ll have to. The only things I’m watching right now are Chicago Fire and Castle.

      From the recent shows I’ve checked (and enjoyed) I think it’s the one you might appreciate most. I kind of gave up on Castle (though I only saw bits and pieces beside the pilot) and I haven’t tried Chicago Fire yet. At least, I’m going through a fair bit of the to watch list!

        I was really impressed with Chicago Fire in the first season. I didn’t see all of it because they took it off Hulu, but what I got to see I really enjoyed. I’m less impressed with the second season. I think they had some great storylines that they could’ve gone with in season two and instead it looks like they’re choosing a lot of angst and high school drama.

          That’s too bad that the second doesn’t seem to live up to how great the first one was. I’m curious to see what you’ll think of how the show continues, especially since I’m not going to watch it right away.
