What is computer.  
Howdy, friends.  I'm currently trying to climb out of my Biannual Extreme Aversion to Social Media Curation and Doing Things on the Internet That Are Not Dumb Games.  I'm never really sure why this happens, but the last couple days even the thought of getting on and checking my flist has left me feeling vaguely panicked.  (I think some of it is this one landcomm I'm in, my flist is absolutely flooded with posts to the social comm, and wading through it has become a nightmare.  I'm probably going to bow out of the comm, and that's about 80% of the reason.)

Took a week off from writing, but am planning on both revising my post-apocalypse TV pilot, which will involve rewriting huge chunks of the first half, and doing a revision on the recently-completed zombie screenplay.  If anyone would like to take a look at the zombie screenplay - not as an in-depth beta, just as a quick "does this read through okay to you?" thing - then let me know.  I feel sort of stuck in my own head about it.

And hopefully will get back to work on the novel soon.  I wish I could write for a full-time job.  Why don't we have patrons anymore?

Between work, writing, Avengers, Game of Thrones, and Community, I find I have very little else going on in my life.  Heh.

You get flodded by a landcomm and I quietly die inside because nothing happens at Fringeverse though Kim said she'd post something and I wanna go all 'If you don't have time/nerve/etc. for more I take it, just don't let it die'XD

I can have a look at the zombie screenplay. Anything I should know about zombies despite that they just die when you cut of their head and that they like to eat people/brains? (You see I have not much experience with themXD)

AVENGERS ♥

It's not so much that there are a lot of challenges, it's that every single challenge, everyone posts to the social comm - so when I check my flist, that's like ALL I see.

NGL, I actually checked a couple days ago to make sure I hadn't been let go from Fringeverse since I hadn't seen anything pop up in so long.

I'm doing sort of my own thing with zombies in this one, so no prior knowledge really necessary. The script is here. If you don't get to it, or read a few pages and it's not your thing, no big deal. In-depth notes aren't necessary (unless you're bored, LOL), just a general feeling on it. TIA! ♥

I get how that is annoying.

Yeah I don't really know what's going on. I pmed Jamie and Kim if we get more events since there will be a final season, Jamie said she wasn't sure and then Kim replied saying she would make a post in a bit and ask who would stay to ensure participation, but that's I think almost 2 weeks ago now. As said above, if they don't have the time or interest anymore in running the place I'd totally step up because I love fringeverse and as long as the show goes on I'd like to see people there doing amazing things.

Well I shouldn't get bored, but I have lots of unistuff I don't want to do because it is not complicated but still takes forever, so I love a distraction like this^^

I ask myself that question about patrons all the time. Really could use one right now.

Good luck with all your projects! (And feel free to email me anything you'd like a second opinion on.)

Thanks! I actually just put your notes on the novel prologue into my master document. Super awesome.

The script is here if you'd like to take a gander. In-depth notes not necessary (unless it's shit and you can't help yourself, heh), just a general "this works/this doesn't" would be awesome. And of course, if you don't get to it/don't feel like it/read ten pages and hate it, no worries. TIA! ♥

So sorry it took me so long (I just couldn't stop watching CommunityXD) but I read the screenplay the last 2 days and I really liked it :)
Everything felt pretty in character to me and never got boring.

I admit I didn't write down lots of notes (in the end I just wanted to know what happensXD), but I hope the few I made help a bit.

Page 2: Burke says 'When that day comes, I'll be sure to cry.'
I think 'I'll make sure to cry' sounds better.

Page 5: I thik you forgot an s for deers when Louis asks if there are any of them left.

Page 14:
INGRID
We’re still waiting on Tilly.
PAUL
If she won’t bother to get here on
time--
INGRID
Then we’ll wait for her.


I think somebody else should say that they're still waiting for Tilly, it felt odd to me this way (sorry I can't really explain it).

Page 15: I think it should be brought up before Tilly comes in that the wound needs cleaning of something. Was my first thought when I read about it but it came a bit to late in Annas reaction for me.

Page 16: I think you forgot the u in fount, because I was a bit confused when I read font.

Page 17:
PAUL (cont'd)
having a baby or two before going
Outside?
GREGORY
A little moonshine never hurt
anyone. It keeps the economy
grinding away, which is a good
thing, as I think we'd all agree.
TILLY
You son of a bitch!
INGRID
Language, Tilly.
SILAS
If we could keep the moonshine off
the streets for a generation or two
everyone would forget about it.
TILLY
The law says I'm not required to
give birth at all if I don't want
to. Members of the Council will
stop being total shits about it!


I think another quick comment from Paul about the baby issue would be helpful because I thought after Ingrids words Tilly would drop it, I was missing another provocation so to say.

Page 18:
I just wanted to say I love how Tilly says 'Better to be strechted than dead!'^^

Page 21:
Mostyl asking out of curiousity, what does it mean when you write 'Beat.' I recognized it the first time on this page and of course later on but didn't really get what it means.

Yeah and then I stopped trying to take notes and just kept readingXD

Just one more question, is this meant to be for a movie or a tv pilot? I wasn't sure at times if there were enough information and all in case you consider it for a movie.
In case you are just not done I didn't say anything and wait to see the restXD
