It was an absolutely gorgeous today. Sunny. Warm(ish). The perfect day – to stay indoors because, of course, everyone else was out and about, taking advantage of the great weather. Tomorrow, however, looks much more promising. Rain in the forecast, from early morning into late evening. Perfect weather for picking up gardening supplies and tinned smoked oysters.
So, how is everyone doing? How are you whiling away the quarantine hours? As I mentioned in a previous blog entry, I have started educating myself on the stock market, something I really should have gotten around to long ago. I just never had the time. Or the interest. But that has changed. And it’s certainly helped that I haven’t exactly been feeling inspired to write. I did come up with three series pitches last week (One a sci-fi series, the other a sci-fi series, and the other…a sci-fi series). And I do have one more pass to do on Episode 2 of TimEscape. Also, I am in talks with a couple of other great genre producers about developing a tricky time travel series. But that feature I was going to write remains just a page full of story beats and plenty of good intentions. For now.
Amazing People With Whom I Have Worked…
Editors play a critical role in the production process. A great one can singlehandedly save a bad episode, and make a fantastic episode even better. Stein Myhrstad is a GREAT editor. #Stargate pic.twitter.com/w4SeDYknCp

Executive Producer N. John Smith was the Production Manager on #Stargate SG-1's first season before serving as Line Producer on over 260 hours of the franchise. Smart and savvy, he always knew how to get things done. pic.twitter.com/k8GqXmRlOg

Ellen Wong (@ellenwongster) played the part of the ruthlessly nefarious Misaki Han, Commander of the Imperial Royal Guard of Ishida, on #DarkMatter – in sharp contrast to Ellen who is an ebullient sweetheart. pic.twitter.com/6GAqNK4KQF
