Must write up notes on the last two series of ‘The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.’ Or, at least, my reaction to the last ever episode.
Well, I’ve finished the first draft of ‘You Must Be,’ my story about personal identity and the roles we are asked to play in society. It must be about time for a birthday; this story is pure, unadulterated angst, but I think it works.
Also, it has a soundtrack; Fiona Apple’s unreleased songs ‘Extraordinary Machine’ and ‘A Better Version of Me.’
(Actually, all my stories have associated music. It would be a glorious day if I could release a soundtrack to a fiction anthology. I do want to write a book that has a designated soundtrack per chapter… And write a musical in which the music licensing would be so great that no one would ever be able to make it…)
Expect more news on this late next week when I massacre the first draft for the sake of the second.
(And I’m over my cold. Thanks for the concern, people…)
Yes, I have a list of things to do, but this pre-empts it all.
For I just saw the ‘Global Frequency’ pilot…
One, write my thoughts on ‘Doctor Who…’
Two, write some notes on ‘Lost…’
Three, finish writing ‘You Must Be…’
Four, make some notes about writing pedagogical comedies…
Five, recover from cold.
Rinse and repeat.
