Well, it’s not Avatar, so I hope you’ll forgive me. But I’ve had something like this kickin’ around in my head for a long while, and I wanted to get it down on paper. So to speak.
The story I just posted is set in the Star Gate Universe. It is not about SG-1, although they do have a small cameo in chapter one. I have not finished writing this story yet — I’m on the third chapter. I think it’ll probably have four or five; certainly it will not be the saga that any of the Avatar stories are. If people like the story — or even if they don’t but I do — I might write more of them. In some ways, it’s just a way for me to practice writing something a little different.
In an ongoing campaign to piss me off, while getting much better in some ways, my body is getting worse in others. Mainly, I’m coming down with carpal tunnel. Oh joy. I’m sort of resting my hands, and I’ve bought a new keyboard to make typing easier, but the cold, hard, facts are that I just have to rest my hands a bit. I’ve seen the doctor, and we’re working on stuff, but it’s been a very depressing time for me. Cuz you know, after all that’s happened this year, more depressing shit is what I need in my life.
The job still sucks, but it’s not unemployment, so that’s good. After a particularly bad day last week I came to the realization that I didn’t have to continue to work at this hell hole. I could continue to seek employment somewhere else. Surely all the programming jobs haven’t been given to college kids and sent to Bangalore — excuse me — Bengalooru. Well, that’s what happens when corporations look out for the CEOs. I, personally, having had to listen to the bullshit one of our VPs was spouting, became even more disgusted with American corporations than I ever have in my life. And that takes some doing.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to your comments on the new story. At least, I hope I’ll be looking forward to them. For all I know, you’ll really hate it. But I hope not.
