Star Wars Weekend~

Been hanging out, doing very little, watching some of the old Star Wars movies on Spike. Despite the annoying commercials, it's been fun. The originals still hold up, although they don't have Ewan as Obi-Wan or Liam as Qui-Gon or Hayden as Anakin . . . maybe that's why I spent more time on the newer trilogy, hehe.

I'm still enjoying The Walking Dead, but it's not nearly as compelling. I guess we can't expect every episode to have the same intensity as the first two. Whew. But it's easy to get annoyed at the human drama. We need these characters to pull together . . . and I need fewer looong, lingering closeups of people saying goodbye to their soon-to-be-zombie loved ones.

I got three votes for and one against this Challenge in my Last Author Standing community. This was another Jacob-centric story, which has turned out to be my favorite subject matter, surprisingly enough. It's hard to believe I've now been participating for more than three months, and there's really no end in sight. I'd say there are at least two or three Challenges to go (I always want to call them Rounds, as opposed to Challenges). I pretty much know the top writers by now, even recognizing their work. I could make a prediction on who's going to win, but I won't.

I hope all my American friends had a fabulous Thanksgiving, and I hope everyone else is staying warm and healthy. I have to say I'm looking forward to the end of 2010. Overall it's been a pretty sucky year.

One AGAINST??? WTF??? I'm shocked you'd get ANY against. These people clearly don't know good writing when they read it. (sigh)

I'm glad you've done it, though -- you've written soooo many good Twilight fics! And I LOVE your Jacob stuff, personally. You have a great take on him.

Yeah, pretty much The Walking Dead just bugs now. I wish they had some teamwork happening! I don't get it. (And that family just leaves and they don't care -- and I can't help feel there was bigotry involved...)

Plus set some rules. This is life and death here. What gives?

Loving watching all of the Star Wars movies, but it's interesting that I agree with you. I know many fans only like the first three movies, but I like them all -- and love many things about the newer ones...

We have seen a LOT of TV and movies this past week. It's been fun!

Hey, I got three votes FOR, so that's a good result.
We'll see what the vote against says.

I've enjoyed the competition, and I've done a *lot* more reading and feedbacking, which is good practice for me as an editor.

Yikes, I'm glad to be going back to work.

I am SO glad you are enjoying it :)

I hope you'll think about joining next round too :)
