Down Down Down

So, not posting for 3 weeks, almost like all my old blogs that lie discarded by the wayside.

Had all 3 Future Shocks rejected, got the flu, feel like I'm a shit writer who no-one will ever want to read.
HooRah for crippling insecurities!

More when I don't feel so down.

And you should all go out and get the Infernal Affairs trilogy to watch. The Scorsese remake will be good, but I doubt it will match the brilliance of the original.

One shock down, another gives me a Devil of a time.

On Saturday I came up with a Future Shock idea, today I wrote the whole thing. Tomorrow it gets posted.
That's the fastest turnaround of conception to submission of anything I've ever written, and I think it's rather good.
The twist doesn't lend too much to guesswork and I think the story would keep any reader entertained. (I'm holding naive visions and hope an Ian Gibson-style artist could be used on it).

The other one began life as an idea for a short story, and I'm not sure that it's going to work as a comic.

Pff, don't care.

I got a Heroclix from Tharg! (Who now has his own MySpace http://www.myspace.com/thargthemighty)

I'm in 2000ad!

Yes, you read that right.
My name will be printed in 2000ad next to something I wrote.
It's a letter. But I got a free Nemesis the Warlock Heroclix for it, so that's cool.

I have just re-read what I sent, and it's ever so fanboy, over usage of 2000ad-isms like ghafflebette and Squaxx.

But hey, I'm in. That's Stage One complete.
Now, Stage Two, getting them to pay me for stuff.
