Author has written 32 stories for Fringe, Castle, Happy Days, Bones, Body of Proof, M*A*S*H, and Remington Steele.
Delivering a story pitch has got to be the most nerve-wracking thing I have ever done in my career. I failed miserably that one time.
I can say I watch cartoons at work all day.
I was never very good at writing. It's ironic that it's how I've chosen to express myself.
Writing has given me much insight into the creative process. It's amazing how the story will change from inception to the next chapter; the result is sometimes better than planned. (What would Marzipan Meadows do? - Episode of animated TV show Spliced)
If by chance, I come across your profile, I will read your stories.
Fan Fiction has helped me to try writing original work at Fiction Press. My FP pen name is guppylove. http://www.fictionpress.com/u/731861/
Not enough time off, before I am back at work for another year. I have read too many books and watched too much TV. It was almost difficult to even get the momentum going on fiction writing. Finally found my hook and the plot of my original fiction. Just need to stay put long enough to write the continuation of that which I started back in 2011. A character that figured in the background had become the opening for the next chapter.
Well. The new X-Files kind of killed my idea nugget.
Bought more books.
Rediscovering some TV oldies. Most notably Remington Steele and The Love Boat.
I got a few ideas knocking around for RS.
The Last Goodbye of Hawkeye Pierce (M*A*S*H) - Inspired by the episode In War and In Love, and the short time Hawkeye and Kyung Sung shared together.
Please Don't Make Me Go (Bones) - It's difficult to ignore Vincent Nigel-Murray's cries to live.
I Am Spock (Fringe) - Started with the skant, and I delivered the Trekkie perspective in a series of short takes. I am a regular convention veteran.
Fear Not Death (Fringe) - Started out with the line, "I'm not afraid to die." The answer to all the hate for alt Olivia was to show sympathy.
Remember Me (Fringe) - My personal favourite. It introduced my first take on Olivia's alternate universe mother.
The Promise (Fringe) - Post season 2 AU. I had the most fun writing this one. The idea came quickly. Inspired by watching 15 minutes of Prime Suspect, it takes place mostly Over There. It was also the second time I used Mother Dunham in a story. She was my muse. Since I didn't know who was eventually cast to play her, I modeled her after Patty Duke. Using what I have seen of Prime Suspect: The Final Act and Comedy Relief special Prime Cracker, I modeled Olivia after Jane Tennison.
First Ten Years (Fringe) - A prequel to The Promise, I realized now it qualifies as a fantasy. It was the first multiple-chapter fiction where I did not rush to finish. There is a forward flow to the story, but each chapter can be viewed as a standalone in a series. You wouldn't miss anything by skipping a chapter. That's probably why it was so enjoyable to write.
Heart (Fringe) - Personally, my #1 FAVORITE MULTIPLE CHAPTER. Not a typical AU. Inspired by Fritz Lang's Metropolis. I envisioned the native alternate universe with Peter still in it and to see how he eventually deals with the out-of-control Walter.
Bedrock (Fringe) - Post season 3 AU. It has Sam Weiss and Fred and Wilma. I haven't really thought it through yet. To be continued.
