The Thing I Can’t Talk About

Posted by BigWords on April 6, 2016

Towards the end of the month, in a shade over two weeks from now, there’s going to be an announcement which goes a little towards explaining exactly why I have trekked halfway across the UK to get internet access, but right now, sitting the wrong side of the official kick-off, I can’t go into any details on what is going on. The plan, as it was, began with a request to jump in with an established group doing… well, that part is hugely complex.

The skinny on why I went in a different direction, and joined with the folks I am currently producing words for, is that the other options all required things I didn’t have easy access to. Or any access to. The option of doing what I wanted, rather than conforming to other requirements, was too strong an enticement, and – the important part – I was getting to bring a lot of my work to the table. I have a lot of material which has never been seen in any way, ranging as far back as scripts from the 90s. There’s plenty to play with.

There’s many things which I am changing in the process of making material which can sell easily – some essays are being repurposed into fiction, a television proposal for a sitcom is being heavily altered, and I’m having to get used to the idea that the lack of equipment can be as much of a push towards solutions as it is a pain in the ass. It won’t stop me complaining abut ancient software and terrible hardware, but if all goes well I will be able to upgrade when the money starts coming in again.

The only way that the Thing I Can’t Talk About is having any effect on my day-to-day life is the time everything is taking. I had planned out a lot more I wanted to do before things got close to the announcement, but there’s a hundred and one things which need immediate attention (and I am on point all the time, apparently). I haven’t done this much design work or editing in years. I’ve even been doing small amounts of CGI in aid of moving projects forward, which – on a computer over six years old – isn’t the most relaxing activity.

It also means I can’t take on any other work while things are so busy. Which kinda sucks when I’m mostly in this gig for the green. I still haven’t seen anything which is meant to come out in the first wave of material, but it should be fine given the nature of the folks who I’m dealing with. Anything that sucks? Hell, I can take the blame for anything which isn’t polished and shiny – as long as there isn’t any throwing of vegetables and fruit, which I don’t approve of. Throw candy my direction instead.

As soon as I get info, I’ll link it here.

GUEST POST: Television Inspirations in Reptilian Literature

Posted by BigWords on November 8, 2012

A guest post from the amazing Carrie Bailey while I am… otherwise preoccupied. Don’t ask.

——————————————————–

Following up on Gary’s books referenced in movies series, I thought I’d post on the topic of movies I referenced in my recent novelette. I think it’s more common for people to reference books in movies than to reference movies in books. What an oversight on the part of writers.

None of the books that I incorporated into my reptilian personal finance novelette were explicit. They were more “influential” in its creation in the sense that I borrowed many ideas, but I didn’t identify the sources. One was the movie “V.” I’ve never had the guts to watch it. I like happy stuff and it doesn’t sound like happy stuff to me, but I’ve listened to friends recount the narrative and I felt that was enough to have the idea. The first person to review “The 3 Indispensable rules to taking charge: A reptilian guide to personal finance and world domination,” said he thought it was influenced by the Men in Black movies, because the narrator called humans “meatbags.” But, I actually haven’t seen them. I did watch “Paul,” with Simon Pegg and that impacted my perception of aliens. And while it’s a TV series, I got some inspiration from the Star Trek Ferengi’s Rules of Acquisition.

Still books are much more inspiring than movies. Why is that? I can only guess that it’s because they’re so raw. A movie is a finished product, the author’s ideas manifest, but the creative process has yet to be done when an idea is uncovered within a book. I should read more.

I did reference more books in my reptilian novelette than movies. I’ve just got to mention a few. The first of those was The Prince by Machiavelli, which is fairly obvious within the chapter titled “BE CRUEL.” He was a philosopher, trying to impress a prince-big surprise-and secure a job advising him. It worked and his recommendations are legendary. We’re often told it is better to be feared than loved. That’s got to be reptilian, no? Then there was a little objectivism from Ayn Rand, a little arrogance from Ann Coulter and a bit of self-help from “The 7 habits of highly influential people.”

Of course those are just the obvious ones.

Carrie Bailey is an author. She is not a reptilian. She lives and writes in New Zealand where she downs coffee by the gallon and research new recipes for using pineapple. She is also one of the editors of Peevish Penman.
