Spent over an hour (or maybe two) typing out things from the 'S.W.A.T.' novel that might be included in my manifesto. I say "might" because it was over five pages of stuff, and I'm just not sure what I'll lose. It's funny when I sit and type it out how poorly written the novel was from a prose standpoint. But from a story-telling angle, it did the job.
I still think some of it reads like bad fanfic.
That and going through both the commentary versions on the DVD are about all the research I can think of. I need to go through the 'Making Of' special one more time and search for more fanfic. But I'm starting to despair of finding much. I'll ask for more recs in the Manifesto itself, of course, but it's too bad. I'll keep looking for the next three weeks, that's for sure.
Well, I do want to research a little about cops and their partners. (Do I love research? Uh, yeah.)
Charlie and I have signed on for Brian brn_gamble
and Jim's just_jimbo
project on fanfic writing. I'm putting the link up on my profile page. Hope it goes well. Charlie's been moderating at Kevin's communities for years, but I've never moderated here at LJ. We'll see.
I'm going to put up a drabble challenge at the Alexander slash list. Hopefully it could be fun -- and encourage some of these folks to start thinking about the words they use when they write. God, those fics go on and on. I smiled at FatJoey's little rant
about the fic at that list. (Actually, I think a few of the recent things have been better . . .)
Gotta do some boring stuff, like wash my hair. Two more days of vaca, and tomorrow is supposed to rain again.
Man, I need new icons.
