It’s finally happened. I don’t know whether to call it writer’s block, or planning malaise, or getting caught planning lots of big posts, or what. But after all this time blogging, I am sitting here really not knowing what I want to write tonight.
I mean, there have been nights where I didn’t have a lot of time to write a post, and something simple has gone up. There have been plenty of times where I haven’t written the post I was planning on – in lieu of writing another post that I’ve had in mind.
So I guess I will share with you what I have been toying with writing, and have ultimately rejected. I guess in some ways this will read as a planning post – about posts I am planning on posting. I write posts like this occasionally, but generally even these are planned. Not so tonight. So… what am I thinking?
Guardians of the Galaxy LitFlix
I need to get this out, I’ve been saying I would, but it’s a lot of small points, and it’s going to be a decent amount of hunting back through 25 comic to find images. Some of the things they decided to include in the movie I was not expecting to see, and so I couldn’t really plan for these or grab good images then!
I maybe should have been working on this post tonight, but I just don’t have the focus for it. I have an outline – the things I want to talk about – now I just need to do it. This post will be up later this week!
For some reason I had August in my head for Dragon Age Inquisition, and maybe this was an earlier release date at some point. However, it’s definitely an October release now – right around when Borderlands: The PreSequel is coming out as well! Dang it.
Holly’s back playing Dragon Age: Origins, and I still need to beat Dragon Age 2 for a first time – I’m still stuck here I think. I have some thoughts about the series, but Holly does too, and I think she’ll be blogging about it this week. We have other thoughts, and they’ll go up over time here approaching the release date.
Doctor Who comes back Saturday! I wrote a post about it the other day, and we’ll likely have more Doctor Who content in the days to come. For one, I’d like to do a character study of Clara – but because I just did a Doctor Who post the other day, I didn’t want to do so tonight.
Another thing I am hemming and hawing about is my next music post over on Sourcerer. I said I was going to write about Broken Bells, and I really want to. But I have so much to say that I probably really have two posts worth. So I’m trying to figure out how to break up those two posts!
Shows Coming Back
We’re getting closer to the start date for shows. But not as close as I think, probably. Actually… I don’t know. Let’s do some release dates!
- September 22 – Gotham
- September 22 – Sleepy Hollow
- September 23 – Agents of SHIELD
- October 2 – Gracepoint
- October 7 – The Flash
- October 8 – Arrow
- October 24 – Constantine
- January 2015 – Agent Carter
There’s some of the shows I’m looking forward to this coming season. It’s an amazing season for comic book TV shows – we’ll see how many survive to a further season! But… none of those release dates are particularly soon, so really, Doctor Who is what there is to be excited about in the coming month.
One of Our Ongoing Series?
So I suppose that means I maybe should have been planning a series post. A Science Fiction Today post, or a Science Fiction and Religion post, or a Geek 501 post. But those aren’t easy to just suddenly write – they take some planning.
I’ve been wanting and needing to do more with those, as well. I’d like to build a whole page on Geek 501 – make it into more of a primer, pulling from specific posts by us, and maybe more from around the web. I also have so many thoughts for Science Fiction Today that I don’t know what to do with them – it feels like they need more attention, so I am still trying to figure that out.
So instead of all of these things, I wrote none of them tonight. Sorry about that!
