OCLT, crazed writer, dark forces, ellie, command & conquer

no progress

Got some other stuff done, including some Resident Evil proofreading, many errands, karate class, and the aforementioned updating of the web site, all of which masked the fact that I didn't write jack or shit on SCPD. *sigh*

I'm also exhausted, so to bed I go.

Shore Leave news

Was checking out Shore Leave 29's web page, and noted that they've added a few actor guests -- in addition to Star Trek's Nichelle Nichols, Stargate SG1's Gary Jones, and Battlestar Galactica's Aaron Douglas, they've also announced Stargate Atlantis's Paul McGillion, Babylon 5's Claudia Christian, SG1 and DaVinci's Inquest's Colin Cunningham, The X-Files and The Lone Gunmen's Dean Haglund, and Deep Space Nine's Casey Biggs, as well as old-time Trek guests William Campbell and Louise Sorel.

This is cool for me on several levels, as I met Paul and Gary at Dragon*Con in '05, Casey at Trek Expo a couple years back, and terri_osborne and I just saw Dean and Claudia (and did Destinies with them) at I-Con a couple weeks ago.

Also greatly looking forward to meeting Cunningham, as I loved the work he did on DaVinci.

the difference between fanfic and profic

At UConn-Storrs this past Monday, one of the students in the Science Fiction class asked me what the difference was between what I do (write media tie-ins) and what fanfic writers do (beyond the obvious that profic pays and fanfic doesn't).

So there you go. Hope this has been helpful. As likely as not, it's been inflammatory, but what the hell.....
