Battle of Artemisium (which is, by no coincidence, the subject of Scott Oden's next novel, Serpent of Hellas). I have a basic outline, and a plan for completing it. So, it will just be a matter of doing the work.
After finally seeing John Carter this weekend, I am inspired to finish my Sword & Planet WIP, so that will probably get the bulk of my fiction attention for a while. It'll probably be novella-length. I could cut it shorter, but why? There is so much story to tell, and I really like the slightly alternate take on the classic S&P setup.
I won't go into too much detail detail about my views on John Carter, except to say that, if you didn't catch it in the first-run theater, you should try to catch it in a second-run, which is where I saw it. It is AMAZING. I saw it in 2D (which is fine, since 3D gives me a headache sometimes) and I was astounded. Imagine the special effects from The Phantom Menace, cleaned up a little, and applied to a real story, with a real plot and GREAT acting. My favorite part: the Tharks. They are exactly how I pictured them when I read the books.
On a related side-note, my rants in previous days about the crappy marketing of John Carter inspired my sister-in-law to seek out A Princess of Mars for her Kindle, just to see what the hullabaloo was all about. She is now addicted, and has officially read more of the series than I have. She's also downloaded a ton of other ERB books. It's nice to know I had a hand in spreading the Cult of ERB.
A writer friend of mine, Chris Blanchard, recently blogged about his experiences with dedicating himself to an achievable writing goal. He has written at least 500 words a day for a few months now, and it has netted him some fine results. I think I will take his challenge, and set myself the same goal. Mind you, that's 500 words of fiction. Facebook and blogging won't count. And neither will schoolwork. But I think I can handle that.
