In No Particular Order

*My first article for Starpulse is set to go online Sunday at noon, a suggested marathon of holiday episodes from twelve of my favorite shows.  Next will be the interview with Chad and Dara Creasey.  They are really great, and I felt completely at ease talking with them, which was so nice.

*My new favorite thing is Google Docs.  I don’t know why it took me so long to use it, but now I can’t get enough.  I don’t have to e-mail drafts to myself, or download files onto public computers, and it saves hard drive space.  Now I can write from anywhere, mwah ha ha!

*After reading this post from the Best-of-Craiglist, the word “drawers” seems both strange and misspelled.  Even though it’s not.

*I’m not sure whether this is a joke or not – and I’m not sure which would please me more.  UPDATE: According to peeps on, it’s a very old joke.  I admit to feeling disappointment.

*A lot of people ask how actors on certain procedurals manage the difficult storylines involving murder of children, sexual assault, suicide, etc., but no one ever seems to ask the person writing them.  They’ve got it worse; they actually have to get inside the criminal’s head in order to make the story believable.

I’m working on a Law & Order: SVU spec script, and though the plot is flowing easily, in many ways it’s very hard to write.  I’m not sure I could do it every week.

Quote of the Day:

“When I read the script sometimes, it’s like ‘Christ! Enough!’ I can’t sleep at night sometimes. There’s the occasional script that just hammers you, that you can’t shower off.” – Mariska Hargitay, Detective Olivia Benson on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit

Link of the Day: Hugh Jackman is apparently hosting the Oscars.  I know my mom’ll be really happy.
