Women in Science Fiction Television is getting closer to completion! I finished the last chapter I had to write tonight. I now have written 73,500 words out of the 80,000! My submission deadline is November 1, 2014. I will be able to submit it end of April if all goes right. I am so proud of how well this project has been going since I started the actual writing back in October. While I had a solid outline from the book proposal, I can say that it turned out better than I had planned, including with some directions I hadn’t thought about at first. I will tackle the afterword and the introduction either this week or on the next one. I already listed all the illustrations (i.e. screen caps) I want for the 21 the book will include.
I also discussed my upcoming guest lecture about vidding, with my friend who teaches the class. Guest lecture will be on March 26, and I am very much looking forward to it. The slides are now all ready, the videos to show are chosen and I have my time set. I am glad that I could pick not just very recent videos, but also an older one. It has been a while since I gave a talk, aside from my participation to the Call Me Kate! web documentary about fandom, in which I also talked a lot about vidding. I’m glad to be given this opportunity.
On the TV side, things are piling up on the to-watch list. List includes: Intelligence and Almost Human recent episodes, but also most of My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic (why, yes, I am finally watching it and so far I am refraining from having paper ideas), and Angel season 5. Easy to say that I am not without things to watch! I also am a bit delayed in TV watching because I started to play a video game again, and got hooked on Torchlight II. I loved the first game but the second one is almost even more addictive!
