Damnit, I knew this was going to happen. 52 pages into the new pilot and things have slowed to a standstill. With the Dark Matter writers’ room in full swing, my attention is focused elsewhere, however I did manage to write a single new scene this morning. At this rate, I’m going to have to revise my ETD (estimated time of delivery) to end of the month. That’s when my “military advisors” (You know who you are!) can expect to see a first draft for vetting purposes.
Yes, it’s military SF. In addition to input from the experts, I’m also doing a little research – by way of reading six books simultaneously to put me in the proper headspace.
By mid-July, all I’ll need is a proper series title and then it’ll be smoooooth sailing!
Not quite as smooth sailing on the DM third season story front, but progress is being made. As I mentioned in previous blog instalments, I have all the pieces of the puzzle but just need to figure out a way to put them together. Which is where Paul, Ivon, Alison, and Lawren come in.
Me, poised to write down one of Ivon’s brilliant ideas.
Like previous seasons, the goal is to pack as much story as possible into these 13 episodes because – who knows? – it could be the show’s (or my) last. Ideally I’ll get to tell the full five season story I have planned, paying off all those clues (hidden and otherwise) and arcs we’ve set up over these first couple of years. If not, don’t worry – you’ll get your ending whether it’ll be in a movie, a comic book, or write here on this blog.
In preparation for the Dark Matter season 2 premiere comes this awesome –
