So, as many of you posted in Comments, The Guild was on the front page of YouTube yesterday! I’m on my 5th hour of slogging through phone messages, emails, donations, it’s pretty cool, but crazy. I’ve been working all last weekend and this week on the movie non-stop and finally have a day off, so I kinda just want to sleep 🙂 But it’s exciting to have a fresh infusion of interest in the show. We have been approached by a few people about funding, which is soooo great! I look forward to the day when I can name a date and start shooting, with no problems about budget getting in the way of crew and locations.
In other news:
During a caffeine-induced fit, I bought this book at Borders on impulse. You guys were right, I do have a problem with the coffee addiction. Boy, did I pay for it it. Anne Bishop had a good series that I remember reading a few years ago, so I thought, for the sake of the cheesy cover, I would read it. Ugh. Very subpar vaginal fantasy. And again with the leather pants! I don’t know about other girls, but the idea of peeling off a pair of sweaty leather pants is totally unappealing to me. And seems unsanitary. Don’t guys get diseases down there because of warm sweaty environments? Oooh, gross visual.
I actually got into an argument with someone over maps in fantasy books this week. For me, I desperately LOVE flipping back and forth, seeing where the characters are from, where they’re going, what the geography is. One of the most annoying things about the Briar King paperback was that I could barely read the map. It was really irritating. But the person I was arguing with said that they hated maps, that it took them out of the story if they needed to flip back and forth, and they hated all the cheesy made up names of rivers and whatnot. I can’t necessarily argue with that point. If you read the names of some places/characters in fantasy novels aloud, you get pretty embarrassed. 🙂 But it’s part of the genre and I love it. Glossaries of characters I’m more on the fence about. I have mixed feelings because I always use those to cheat, flip back and look them up before allowing the story to unfold. I have no morals that way. I guess I’m a horrible person. 😉
Ok, back to answering YouTube messages. “Yes, I used to play WOW. I will watch your video if I have time…”
