After taking a couple days break for Christmas, my brain was running around in circles and I picked up my book project again. I’m not going full speed for writing, but I began work on the next chapter of my book Women in Science Fiction Television. This one about Aeryn Sun (Farscape), Susan Ivanova and Delen (Babylon 5) will actually be the opening chapter. I already set the detailed structure and jolted down some notes for each of them. The outline is a bit different from my original idea but I think it works better as such and gives more angles for my comparative analysis. I’m hoping to start writing the introduction within the next couple of days.
One of my Christmas presents was the Star Wars novel Scoundrels by Timothy Zahn. I didn’t get the actual novel yet, but I read the prequel novella Winner Lose All, which was Lando Calrissian galore, making me a happy camper! I’m still reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer, and I wish I could finish it by the end of the year, but having 400 pages left and being a slow reader those days, I’m unsure I’ll be able to! I’ll try though! Then I will pick Scoundrels. Of course, I also have the Yoko Tsuno last issue to read in between. And I’m not even starting to list all the pretty books I have lined up on my to-read shelf!
Tomorrow, I have a Skype work session with the producer of the web documentary who taped my interview last month, for a bit of a follow up. I’m glad that we can get it done before the end of the year. And I’m just making a happy dance because my amazing proof reader just sent me the latest chapter I had finished all edited!
On a final note, I am pondering on making some recap post of books read this year, as well as the progress I made with publications and also with the vids I created. I’m still trying to figure out a good way to do it.
