I’ve been revising a novella that I want to submit on February 1st for a submission call. However, in the middle of revising, I realized that a lot wasn’t working with the story. A lot. So I had to do some major cutting and now I’m trying to fix what’s left. I have eight days in which to do it so I’m not freaking out just yet.
But I did take time out from my revising to check out SyFy’s new series, Caprica. To be honest I did not have high hopes for this series. But I was curious enough to at least check out the premiere episode. And I’m glad I did.
Caprica is a prequel to Battlestar Galactica, taking place some 58 years before the Cylon attack. At this point in time, Caprica is a world flush with success, money and power. As a matter of fact, Cylons are in the process of being constructed in this series. But something unforseen happens in their construction which lays the groundwork for all that’s to come.
Commander Adama is an 11-year old boy in the series, so the storyline centers around his father, Joseph Adama, a lawyer, who is an immigrant from Tauron and came to Caprica to make a better life for himself. Apparently, people from the planet Tauron are looked down upon by others in the Twelve Colonies and are called “dirt-eaters” by the Capricans.
Anyway, the show was a lot better than I thought it would be and I will definitely continue to check it out on Friday nights.
Okay, I gotta get back to my ailing novella. I’ve torn the guts out of the poor thing and I’ve got to get it back on its feet.
Ciao for now!
