strange detractors


Twelve of the 22 pages of Farscape: Strange Detractors #2 are scripted.

Some of the gripping dialogue includes: "Uh, Pilot?" "What the hell?" "Hey!" "Never!" "You did what?" "...frell..." and "Whoa, Nelly!"

And yes, they pay me for this.

Also: Facebok is TEH EBIL! Timesink, like whoa.

See? It's even making me talk in 'net-speak! Kill me now!

4pm: "Media Tie-Ins: Dead End or Foot in the Door?" w/Vonnie Carts-Powell, Jeanne Cavelos, and Terri Osborne (Room 204)
9pm: "This is the War Room!: A Look Back at Dr. Strangelove," w/Garen Daly, Terry Franklin, David Larochelle, John McDaid, and James Zavaglia (Crispus Attucks)

11.30am: reading: I'll be reading my Klingon wrath novella "The Unhappy Ones" for the forthcoming Star Trek: Seven Deadly Sins anthology (and maybe bits from Farscape scripts) (BU Suite)
12pm: "Bad Contracts and Publishing Scams," w/Inanna Arthen, Sara M. Harvey, Michael Kabongo, and James D. Macdonald (Room 201)

In addition to all of the above, I'll be putting in time at the Hot Chicks with Books room in Dealer's Row. So if you can't find me at any of the above, you can always either a) find me or b) leave a message at the HCwB room.
