I stayed up until nearly three this morning writing and rewriting and tweaking my column, and I consequently look and feel like hell. This isn't the best way to look and feel, because we're shooting an InDigital later this afternoon. Hopefully, I'll get to take a quick nap and recover some HP before I leave.
I'm still messing with my column a little bit, even though it's due to go live in a little more than 90 minutes (this is normal when I have something I really like; I don't finish it as much as I reluctantly let it go) but I think WWdN readers will enjoy it. I've been so trapped in burst culture lately that I haven't had the time or correct frame of mind to write anything narrative, so it felt really good to get back to that.
It's going to be two parts, because it's over 3600 words in one chunk, so I have to find a good place to split it. I think I have a good place to do that, but I'm going to run it past Andrew before I turn it in. Coincidentally, 3600 words or so is about what I feel I need to add to the still untitled next book that really needs to be finished before the end of this month, so I feel pretty happy and satisfied with that, as well.
Oh, the whole reason I sat down to post in my blog was this nifty link I got from Richard Brodie. Ever wonder how big the Enterprise D would really be? I always figured it was exactly the size of the Paramount lot, because that's how big it was on a drawing they included in the writer's bible in season one . . . but this guy has determined that it's actually a hell of a lot bigger.
