Return to the Forbidden Planet

I’m back. And hopefully, this time, for good.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my writing over the past few weeks, and one of the things I’ve got to stop myself from doing is using easy excuses not to write. There’ll always be fantastic reasons not to write, but writing is the only thing that I actually feel that I was put on this Earth to do. I may have major motivational and confidence problems, but the only way around them is to write and write, and then write some more.

I’m starting some stuff over the next week that’s hopefully going to build me up to my next novel. I’m also, however, going to be doing more with this blog. TV Eye will be returning soon, and I’ll be writing up some of my adventures over the past couple of weeks. The more I achieve, the better I’m going to feel.

Lots to do. And not enough time to do it…

  1. Hello sir!
    Yes, I did- and I think the answer is a firm yes to both of them. Despite not being sure exactly where I’ll get the money from, I’ve simply got to do Eastercon this year, so I’ll be there – and the more I do, the better. Can’t guarantee I’ll say anything interesting, but I’ll damn well have a go.
    And a yes to the writing for Vector, as well. All I would say is give me as much advance warning as possible– there are occasional points where I get buried in deadlines, so having the maximum amount of time is a help. Plus… well, I am a little nervous about it just because Vector has an awful lot of very good critical writing in it, and most of my TV-related burbling on my blog feels terribly jumbled and not very well put together. I often feel terribly outclassed, but will happily try and throw something together that’s both entertaining and (at least in some way) intelligent!


    • so I’ll be there

      Deadlines for 2008 will be mid-January, mid-April, mid-July, and mid-October. Length will be 1500 words or so, with an option to do a longer (say, 4000 words) review-of-2007 piece to start with if you want. Subject should be any sf tv or aspect of sf tv you so desire. And don’t worry, I’ll edit you where necessary. 😉
