I can’t come up with an ending for the “The King And The Thief” post of yesterday. And right now I don’t know what to do. I know my own weakness–the stage fright. I can come up with reasonably good ideas when not under stress. However when the time comes to call for my exertion, I just freeze with terror. The problem is I don’t want the king to be a conventional despot. That’s so trite. However, I also can’t come up with a new angle. I hope tomorrow will bring fresh ideas.
Life is full of things unfinished–books, shows, stories, relationships, projects, drafts.
Unfinished TV Shows
“Voltaire High” from Amazon
This is a really good show and I am still watching it. I particularly enjoy the fact that it feels like there are both female and male script writers for the show. Or probably even more women writers. Women are more like real women, not like fancy sketches from male writer’s imagination. Even mothers in the show are real women too–I enjoy this. They are not those stereotypical good mothers who only dispense tired tunes of a perpetual nanny, or those stereotypical bad ones.
“Billions” from Showtime
I only watched five episode of season five and not beyond that point. I was really disappointed knowing that Taylor Mason is not given a bigger role to play. I just love the character so much. I wish that Taylor replace Axelrod to be the main attraction of the show, but unfortunately Michael Prince is chosen as the conventional replacement. Please take some risk and cast Taylor in a better way. How about make Taylor a criminal master mind?
I finished the first half of the seasons and never continued. I should finish it, but somehow I just delay it year after year.
Too many unfinished books in my kindle fire that I don’t know where to start.
