Mini-Musing 3/23/18 ~ For Reboot series fans only!*

*Well, feel free to read if you’re curious.

This is mainly for fans of the animated show Reboot which aired back in the mid-nineties and was the first all CGI Saturday Morning Cartoon.  You’re probably already aware of all the bull*** that’s been surrounding the return of the show so I won’t go into it too deeply but I want to say one thing:

Enough is enough.

I wasn’t going to say anything at all about Rainmaker jerking our collective chains but today, I saw this on the Reboot Revival website.

I hope @GlitchBob452 doesn’t mind I’ve placed this here but I think all red-blooded Reboot fans who haven’t seen this, should if you haven’t already.  They already know how Rainmaker Entertainment ruined a perfectly marvelous show.  There isn’t much more I can say except, WTF?  This was it for me.

Now, I know I don’t talk about television that much but Reboot always held a special place in this writer’s heart.  Way back in the day I was re-introduced to Reboot thanks to a fellow fan who went by the name of JuliaCat.  I don’t know where she is now, but I’ll say, “Hello.”

I became a MAJOR FAN. I mean, a website, fanfiction, contests, if it had to do with Reboot, I was there.  I eagerly awaited Season 4, and then joined the myriad of fans who wanted to forget it existed and just stick to the three seasons with the exception of the cliffhanger being resolved.  After decades of back and forth, I was pretty much convinced that Reboot was never coming back and my interest ceased.  Gone was the site and the fanfiction and I resigned myself to never getting an ending to that cliffhanger.

Until Big Brother and I happened to stumble upon this:

After viewing it the first thing I said was, “Oh s***, there are going to be so many pissed off Booters.”

The 12K  (*14K as of 4/5/18) in dislikes says it all.

I won’t be watching this version. I’ve already down-voted this on Netflix.  Yes, you can do that without actually watching it!  I was content to stay in the shadows but after seeing these horrific renderings of our favorite characters – wow – my brain just imploded.

I’ve seen it compared to Power Rangers, Code Lyoko, something called Zixx and Super Human Samurai Squad.  I’ve never heard of either of the latter two.  However, it IS NOT REBOOT.

I’m sure my fellow Reboot fans have seen all of the interviews and articles with Michael Hefferon’s lame-ass excuses.  We’ve asked why did you even bother to call it Reboot?  Didn’t you know the true Reboot fans wouldn’t accept it?  I find it hard to believe he didn’t.

So now Reboot will be firmly ensconced in the realm of fond memories along with all of the fellow fans I met and all the fun we had.  As for The Guardian Code – oh, hell to the no!

Peace~

Mini-Musing 3/11/18 – YA Fantasy IS IN!

I took a short trip back to Barnes and Noble and again didn’t see anything new in the adult fantasy section but I decided to look at the YA Fantasy shelves. At first, I got the scare of my life when I couldn’t find them! I thought, “Are you shi***** me? You even got rid of YA?” However, they call it Teen Reads now and I was happy to find everything was there. I wanted to take some pictures but I couldn’t get my blasted phone out of my purse. Trust me; it’s more difficult than it sounds. It looks like YA Fantasy at least is still going strong. I can understand why most agents and editors want it now and from what I’ve researched, it’s not going to stop anytime soon, IMHO. I could be completely wrong but it’s difficult to think so. I suppose I’ll be buying my adult fantasy online but then again, it would be more convenient to buy both.

Gunslinger Witch is being edited and I’m looking forward to getting my work out to many fabulous readers. Meanwhile you’ll see me around.

Peace~

Mini-Musing 11/27/17 ~ I did it!


This is a big step for me. 

I had already started my new work, Gunslinger Witch, so I couldn’t do NaNoWriMo 2017, however like many of my fellow authors I did follow along.  Tonight, I broke the 50K mark at 52,315!

Go me.

Now of course, many of my fellow authors have also reached this goal but why do I say this is a big step?  Because I haven’t written this much since – forever.  Seriously.  The last full-length work I wrote was Memory in Shadow.  Afterwards, when it didn’t do as well as I would have liked, it became nearly impossible for me to write anything.  It wasn’t just that, it was also the writing defeat I’ve mentioned on a few occasions.  These two things combined thoroughly beat my Muse down.

Before it happened, I could finish a work within one to three months, as previously stated.  I haven’t been able to do that for decades.  It took me five years to finish Tinderbox and that was because life kept getting in the way.  It wasn’t always good.

Then an atomic bomb was dropped on me.  I lost my job of ten years.  I was WAY STRESSED!  As evidenced by my Muses sudden influx of energy that had me writing new short stories for the first time in well – forever. So, in a sense at least writing-wise it was a good thing.

I’m going to take a little break and maybe play some videogames and chill for a bit, then I’m going to finish and will have it ready for editing, probably within another two to three months, depending.  I just wish I could buy a bottle of champagne.  Oh well, someone have a few glasses for me, OK?

Peace~
