I copied the following information from TerraFirma and am sharing it with all those who haven't yet seen the list. Please check for updated information on con book listings and for more info. on what a con book is. If *you* would like to do a con book for one of the Farscape actors, directors, etc., not yet listed, please volunteer here.

"As a courtesy to the con book organizers, please do your best to send your submissions in before the due date.

Please remember NOT to submit unpublished written works such as short stories, scripts, etc. The cast members may not read unpublished works due to legal issues that could arise at a later date."

CON BOOK RECIPIENTS (and ORGANIZERS and due dates when they're available):

Claudia Black (Aeryn): Camerascaper - due October 20 - send to (Put Claudia's Con Book in subject line.)

At least a paragraph - detailing what you thought. His music is obviously very important to Paul, and I thought this would be a good way to show support! The usual Stark-related stuff is great too.)

Farscape, SciFi and Creation

I know others have posted this already, but just in case anyone missed the info., here it is again.

Go to and sign up/register your email address to be notified of updates regarding the Farscape web series. This is a great way to let SciFi know how many people out there are interested in Farscape on the web. ;)

Because of the web series news, Creation is currently conducting a poll asking whether or not they should continue with Farscape-related cons or leave this year's Burbank con as the last one like they originally planned. Click on the link below to cast your vote.

Writing and Film and .. *sigh*

I've written more in the past week than I have all summer, and it's a wonderful feeling. Research and other preperation work for NaNoWriMo (I want to finish it this year!) along with exploration of film ideas have inspired me to take pen to paper again. *sigh*

When I haven't written in awhile, I forget how much I've missed it. Jotting down a few lines and ideas, trying to connect thoughts and themes, playing around with dialogue snippets to get a better sense of a particular characters, it's all flowing out of me right now, and it feels *so* good! I really wish I was home to work in my notebooks and not here at the computer at work. :)

An added motivational spark was the email I received from Solonia over the weekend. The wheels are currently in motion for P7D, and somehow that knowledge has energized me. I've been in a better mood this week than I have (consistently anyway) in quite some time. I'll have to ask S. about pointing people to the film site; I'm not sure if she wants that done yet or not. ;)
