I … haven’t done one of these in forever and given that my ability to pay the rent that’s due is … extremely uncertain right now, I don’t know if I’ll be around to write any of what I’m going to mention. But, for now, head below the cut for what might get to come out of my head and into the word in the next month or two. 🙂
I’ve unfortunately not been up to doing more than my regularly scheduled Catwoman posts (if on an irregular schedule- poverty and chronic pain aren’t really friends with consistent schedules and having the spirit to write with, well, spirit), so there really isn’t anything to recap as done or as planned to have been done.
But, I do maybe want to veer off into non-Catwoman and even non-comics land (one day I shall be able to keep on top of new releases and writing about them. hopefully.), although I did have some more long-form Catwoman ideas in mind at one point before my time and energy got sapped away from the ideas. One good thing I have managed this year is introducing a dear friend to their first MMORPG so I might veer off into games a bit. Maybe not into stuff about new players (there are whole sites of game guides, although given my friend’s luck with those, they don’t always actually help, especially new players who don’t need to know what people at a level cap over 90 levels away do with their stats and armour), but about game narratives and the like, and what having access to only parts of narratives can do in terms of player reception of certain groups and actions.
I have also been tossing around trying to write about the film adaptations of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings and how they seem to go astray by shying away from and lessing the very close relationships between the characters that form so much of the backbone of the narrative (especially in the case of The Hobbit), although that one will be very time intensive if I do it. Both in the writing and in the necessary rewatching of the films, especially to compare key scenes and dialogue for changes. So, might be a lot or might be a little (or nothing, given the rent situation), but the ideas are there. 🙂
