Good God, Dwayne.  What were you thinking?

NaNoWriMo, Day 16: 1667/23691.

Finally got past a place with no narrative flow. I think.  God knows that the second draft to this thing is going to have to have a ton of dialog replaced with action. But that’s a worry for later.

Getting up there, getting up there.

‘Bang The Drum All Day.’

Can’t remember if I did this one already this year AND I DON’T CARE.

The… The Road Movie trailer.

They’ve taken Russian dash cam clips and turned it into a full length documentary-type film for theatrical release. …Bozhe moi.

As God is my witness; if The Road Movie is playing in a theater near me, I might actually go see it. This trailer has sold me on the concept. And yes, I’m as horrified by that admission as you are.

So. Justice League is gonna suck, huh?

I mean, we’ll know in a half hour, when Rotten Tomatoes ends an embargo on Justice League that everybody’s largely assuming signifies that the reviews aren’t going to be great. Certainly the New York Times, which doesn’t need no stinking embargoes, isn’t saying the same things about it that people said about Thor or Wonder Woman. And the Times didn’t even hate it! They graded it on a curve, but they didn’t hate it.

It’ll likely make a ton of money, though. If not here, overseas. So how to correct the DCEU? Well, if only there was a director with a proven ability to make a blockbuster film – preferably, one set in the DCEU universe – that was also widely applauded as being a good blockbuster film. But where could DC find such a wonder?

NaNoWriMo, Day 15: 1717/22024.

Well, if this keeps up then soon I’m going to be past the halfway point. Fortunately, this is not a competition. Really fortunately.

NaNoWriMo, Day 14: 1677/20307.

My wife had her medieval crafts friends over for dinner (salted pork roast and other delicious things), I helped entertain guests for a change, and it was difficult to figure out what to write tonight again. So, nose to the grindstone, because excuses don’t increase wordcount.

Hey, 20K.

Book of the Week / IT MUST BE MINE: Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Imaginarium.

Terry Pratchett’s Discworld Imaginarium comes out on the 23rd, and all hail the power of a weak pound; a signed copy is apparently significantly cheaper on this side of the pond. In fact, lemme go put it on the Wish List, because Christmas is coming up in six weeks. It looks very very pretty…

AND SO, ADIEU… pardon me.  Just my little joke.  And so, adieu to… The Princess Bride? Must have never replaced the link on the sidebar, last week. Ach, well.

NaNoWriMo, Day 13: 1737/18630.

Not a typo; yesterday’s total was a typo (I looked at the wrong number). Still, I’m only down 3000 words at this point.  I guess I’ll come up with something that bridges the gap in the narrative between what I wrote yesterday and what I wrote today.  I wasn’t sure how to get from where I was to where I wanted to go, so I wrote out where I wanted to go in the hopes that it would give an idea on how to get there.  I think that it may have worked, too. We’ll see.

Tweet of the Day, Write Better Math Questions edition.

It’s the ‘Really?’ that grates. Yes, really. It’s not the kid’s fault that the wording of that particular question is hideously flawed.  That’s all on the teacher, who should have either known better, or used a better set of questions.

Steve Jackson Games puts GURPS 4E on DriveThruRPG…

…at least, it looks like just GURPS 4e here on DriveThruRPG.  Specifically, it looks like the GURPS 4e titles I’d put on if I was getting ready to offer them as a Bundle of Holding; at first glance, the only items missing from DriveThruRPG are the ones that involve licensed properties. Which probably means no In Nomine any time soon, dammit. Still: keep watching the skies.
