Notes and ruminations on ...well....anyway, notes
Tuesday, June 28, 2005

I've never, never ever in my life written a blog. I don't often read them, either, since the few I have seen were basically long, whiny rants. I'm in a weird frame of mind right now, though; hence why I'm writing this now. I wonder how many people will respond...?

I'm still working on the next installment of "Point of No Return." When I began the story I had all manner of free time, and then just like *that* I'm busier than a hooker on "2-for-1 Night." The focus of the story has shifted from Kai to Mal to Inara, a fact I was not aware of when I wrote the stories. So, the later eps have a distinctly different tone from the earlier ones. I'm trying to figure out how to bring the focus back to Kai and his relationships with Mal and River, so that challenge, coupled with all the "real world" crap I have to do, will likely delay the next installations by a couple of weeks. Not to worry, though; the story will wrap up pretty soon.

Actually, that's not true. There's another chapter, tentatively titled "Heart and Soul," that's in the works. It'll follow Inara's adventures after leaving Serenity and reveal some new things about Shepherd Book. The wheels are still turning on that one, though. Anyway, look for it around August. I thought of doing a "backstory" fic chronicling Simon's ordeal with breaking River out of the Academy, but I'll wait till after the BDM is released to see what details are released on that whole storyline.

I swear, if I devoted half the time I spent working on fanfic to working on my own writing, I'd be a rich man by now.

That's it. Not bad for my first blog, but longer than I originally anticipated....I may put up another one; depends on the response I get to this one. Later!
