Recently, much of my days are spent reading, writing, and in creative discussions over the phone, via email, or while enjoying double chocolate mochas. Again, the plan was to take time off, travel, catch a bunch of matinees, but the opportunities that have presented themselves have proven too intriguing to pass up. Besides, in this business you just never know. One day you can be juggling a half dozen slam-dunk prospects and, the next, you can be wondering where it all went. Suffice it to say, it’s always a good idea to have more than a few balls in the air. It’s always not a bad idea to diversify your creative portfolio. With 350+ hours of television to my credit as a produce (100+ hours as a writer), most of it in the sci-fi realm, I’m more than happy to field offers in that particular arena. On the other hand, if the prospect of working in another genre (fantasy, horror, crime) presented itself, I’d be delighted to pursue.
Considering the various tangible prospects that have recently crossed my desk (everything from materials forwarded for review to participatory deals), and accounting for crossover in certain categories, they break down as follows:
Comic book-related: 25%
A lot of very interesting stuff that has kept me very busy of late.
BUT not too busy to keep me from my reading! I’m pleased to report that of the 44 (2017 release) titles I listed on my blog last week, I’ve managed to read five (3 very good,1 okay, and 1 excellent) and abandoned one after a hundred pages. Only 39 more to go!
While the poop emoji is the new hot thing and Akemi is all about the hearts, the thinking emoji is far and away my favorite because it reminds me of my former Stargate cohort Carl Binder –
Oh, hey! The Robopocalypse is upon us!
