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.
