Being Human Eps. 6

So the werewolf is Jewish. His name is George and he had used his Star of David to repel some vampires who had wanted to kill off his vampire friend/roommate Mitchell.

I had missed the first and fifth episodes so I know I’m missing some plot points. I do like the characters, but with Annie the ghost, I have a problem. She is easy to like, but she doesn’t seem very ghost-like. She can go where she likes, change clothes, do the dishes, everyday activities. She interacts with the vampires and werewolves just fine, humans are more tricky. Can’t be seen or heard, but she can write as she had in a previous episode. Doesn’t seem so bad an after-life.

Episode 6 is the final episode of the short first season. I would like to see the series continue.

Anyone else watch this show?

Being Human Eps. 3

Last night I remembered to watch another episode of the BBC America series, Being Human.

Last night I remembered to watch another episode of the BBC America series, Being Human. I did enjoy watching it and the werewolf is the most interesting one to me so far. A very nervous, unsure man trying to do the best for everyone else at the cost of his own happiness.

From what I can tell, the vampire can go out in the sunlight and the ghost for some reason can lift objects as any person could but when she touches someone, they don’t feel it.

Today I triple-checked my manuscript of Full Moon Lament…

Today I triple-checked my manuscript of Full Moon Lament for any spelling, grammer or punctuation mistakes, then added the cover page, and stuck them into a manilla envelope along with a SASE and note. Went to the Post Office and mailed my first submission off to Fantasy & Science Fiction magazine. Here’s hoping the editor is as pleased with it as the writing group.

Attended the monthly writing group meeting at the library. One member shared her editor’s copious notes. The remarks were thorough and helpful and I look forward to using this editor one day. Another member is using her now and promises to share next time. He has already emailed us a copy of the complete novel — a nautical adventure set in the 1870s. We had only been reviewing his work piecemeal and often out of order, so it will be great to see the whole novel.

My short piece, “Full Moon Lament,” was reviewed again. My revisions improved the work and they encouraged me to go look for a publisher. I’ll be spending this week, at least, looking for short story publications to submit to. I suppose the story can be summarized as a tongue-in-cheek twist on the werewolf tale.

Hopefully I can report good news here!
