BIG thanks to mamapranayama for betaing and to cappy712 for agreeing to look over my final copy. I’m so full of stupid mistakes these days and a second (or third) pair of eyes is so helpful. Any remaining errors are my own.
Be sure to give love to candygramme for the wonderful art. I couldn’t decide which banner I liked best, so I used them all J( Collapse )
The main point of this ramble is that I went back and edited my first story ever, Grand Canyon. It's a Buffy/SPN crossover I wrote in 2011. If you've never gone back and looked at your first story, I recommend it as a writing exercise. It is definitely a humbling experience, but one I think will ultimately help me be a better writer in the long run. I forced myself to only give it one pass (which was VERY hard for me. I can get compulsive.). I could have gotten lost for weeks and weeks cleaning up sins I didn't even know I was committing at the time. But, I have new stories (and more literary sins, no doubt) that I wish to write and I decided I'd just stick to fixing a few of the basics. Hello epithet abuse, overuse of italics, and a disturbing issue with commas. I still have an issue with commas, I think. It's like sometimes I want to go crazy with them and, other times, I don't use them when I should. *shrugs*

Anyway, the point of this migraine meds induced ramble is: Has anyone had lasic or know people who are close to them who have had it? I've asked my FB friends as well. I'd just like to get some RL stories/opinions on it.
So, anyhow. I was trying to decide on where to set my story in the SPN timeline. I did a google search today to see when the first Odd Thomas book was published ... my Kindle version has no publish date :-/. This is what I discovered. Odd Thomas is coming to theaters April 5. Crap? I'm not sure how I feel about that. I've wanted a movie, but not sure I want one right now. Not while I'll still be in the middle of writing a big bang fic. It will raise the profile of the crossover character and possibly draw more readers, but what if they screw the pooch on the movie? What if that Odd is totally different from book Odd? I'm currently re-reading the first book (which is what the movie is based on) just so I can get Odd right. Come April 5th, I should be well into the story and I'm not sure if I should even see the movie. What if they change a lot of his back story. What if there's no ghost!Elvis? Come on, there HAS to be a ghost!Elvis. But I looked at the cast list and no one is listed as playing Elvis. This is really throwing a wrench in things!! URGH!! Yes this is a ramble, but I don't know what to do. I'm almost tempted to chicken out due to these extenuating circumstances. I fail see why Hollywood did not check with me first.
I finally signed up for a big bang, something I've always wanted to do. So, decided I may as well bite the bullet... and boy and am I biting an obscure one. My plan is to do a cross of Dean Koontz' Odd Thomas series and SPN. Obviously it would most likely be a ghost story. I plan to write it from Odd's POV and do it pre-book series. That way it could easily read as a standard outsider POV story for those not familiar with the character and not spoil the books as a bonus. But DAMN I'm going to have to get Oddie's voice down and his is nearly as unique and loveable as Dean's. Crap! I really need to get to re-reading the first book. Any fans out there?
