Yeah, basically with the exception of one last project, which I just accepted
today (I can't talk about it yet, until the contracts are drafted and signed,
because nothing's real until it's inked), I can't take on any more new
projects. At this point I'm pretty much maxed out. There's stuff I'd kinda
*like* to do, but I know I just don't have the time to handle it and do it at
the level of quality I require of myself, so I have to just say no for a while.


This last one to make it under the wire is something I just couldn't say no to,
though.

More on this when I can talk freely. All I can say for now is that it isn't in
the TV area, but it's extremely high visibility.

Y'know, if I get this question one more time, I'm going to belt somebody.

Just for starters, do you want me to just sit here and hope that someday
somebody buys the show and thus pass up work in between?

Secondly...if there WERE to be any more Crusade, it would be at LEAST a year,
maybe more, before it would get going. SFC is going to want to see what
happens to B5's reruns before picking up Crusade's reruns. That wouldn't
happen until after the first of the year. If they want something after that,
B5 or Crusade related, THAT couldn't happen until the fall at the very earliest
just to get the DEAL together, and you wouldn't start shooting until Spring
2002 at the *very earliest*.

That's a long time, and I'm not going to just sit on my hands in the interim.

Stop being a hysteric.

(And before anyone corrects me, it IS "a hysteric," not "an hysteric." If you
can hear the H, then it's A, if you can't hear the H, it's AN...as in "an hour"
or "a horse." The popular tendency to say "an historic event' is, btw,
actually incorrect. It sounds better, but it's gramatically incorrect.)

I swear, I'll turn this car RIGHT around and we're going home....
