The One Hundred and Fifty-Seventh Post: The One Where I Am Slow to Wake Up, But What Else Is New?

It’s been a week since I got Apple TV and I have to admit it has exceeded my expectations. Not only can it pull up things from my iTunes account, but things from my computer – so, I can listen to music stored in my iTunes files and audio podcasts I have subscribed to in iTunes (which are the only ones I get). I am still committed to cutting the cable at the end of the season of Game of Thrones. In the meantime, I am going to get season passes for most of my favorite shows (only this show isn’t on iTunes, but it’s on broadcast, so I won’t miss anything) and get the back seasons. I’ve gotten Burn Notice caught up and I am going to get the current season of NCIS and the remaining five seasons… but first, I am going to get the current season of Warehouse 13. Yes, I am one of the few people who don’t get their tails all bushy over that show – it’s not science fiction, but hey – it’s not wrestling either. It’s another show I heartily recommend, alongside Continuum if for no other reason than Lexa Doig (*sigh*).

Speaking of sighing – I am almost (40 pages away) half way from finishing the re-writes for the first novel. The current project (After Ever) has had one major problem hurtled: one of the main characters now has an ending. This may not sound like a major deal, but I like to know where the story is going to end for the characters and Rhonda was the only one that had any sort of unclear ending to the series… and I so desperately wanted to avoid the clichéd ending
for her. So I figured that I would take an ending that might be a little clichéd, but it’s at least a little upbeat for her given that she is suffering worse than the others that came back. Well… not as bad as William, obviously, but suffering anyway. Now, the only characters I have to nail down are Alanza and The Rider. I am still working on I/O Error, but it’s on a rotating cycle between that and After Ever. After Ever is going to be a subscription series, not to put the cart before the horse, but I am currently thinking about hiring a model for the cover for the first series. If anyone has any suggestions – feel free to drop them in the comments section. Please – keep in mind that the budget for this is going to be around $600.00 for the model. So, if you know any young women who want to earn an innocent six hundred – direct them my way, please.

Well, I am getting another cup of coffee and am going to try to work a little on After Ever and get some better ideas about The Rider. I hope you all have a great day!

 

Sincerely,

Seething Apathy
