First scene of my draft for the Inevitable Warblers Spinoff [May. 23rd, 2011|01:53 am]
Tits McGee
Scene 1- inside a classroom: daytime

Fade in from black. WES is sitting in class, playing with his pen. He is dressed in his Dalton uniform. He looks like he is about to fall asleep on his desk. In the background, a teacher is talking. The camera is focused on WES, but shows that there are other people in the classroom with him, faded into the background.
WES (voiceover)
I was never a great student. Good enough, sure, but not great. I could pass my classes with enough studying, and I always managed to pull a decent final paper in at just the right time. The thing is, I'm good at one thing, and that one thing is singing.

WES sits up in his seat, suddenly energized.
WES (voiceover cont'd)
I've been with the Warblers for three long years. We've had our ups and downs as a show choir. There was the Gap Attack incident, where we all were banned from every Gap in Ohio for a year. There was the time that the whole club got the flu at the same time and had to miss our big Christmas show. And, of course there was our spectacular loss at Regionals last year. But that's all behind us now.

The bell rings. Cut to a shot of WES walking through the hallway, laughing with JEFF and DAVID. All three are clutching their books to their chests, and walking with purpose towards the choir room.

WES (voiceover, cont'd)
Because this year, I'm a senior. Nationals is ours, I can feel it. We've got the talent, we've got the energy, and we've got the manpower to win. All we need is the right music and a little bit of luck.

WES slips and falls out of the shot.

WES (voiceover, cont'd)
Of course, luck has never been my strong suit.

Fade to black. The red “D” of the Dalton crest appears. The words, “The Dalton Warblers” form around it in an old-english-style font. Fade
into the next scene.

As-of-yet Untitled Klaine!Genderswap Fic (1/???) [May. 17th, 2011|10:58 pm]

Title: ????
Media: Fanfic
Genre: angst/romance
Word count: 900
Characters: Kurt, Blaine, Karofsky, Wes, David, eventually other members of ND/Warblers
Summary: This is an idea I've been working with for a while.  I wanted to rewrite all the Klaine moments we've had so far with all characters' genders switched.  BUT, I want to do so without falling into gender essentialism and stereotyping.  So this is my first attempt.  I plan to alternate characters' POV's in each chapter.  So, next chapter would be the same scene from Blair's POV, etc. etc.  Now I'm just rambling.

My issues tend to be with pacing and getting my point across, so let me know if I can improve in either of those departments.

A quick rant before bed [May. 14th, 2011|01:35 am]
Tits McGee
 So I'm 95% sure that I didn't get that internship I wanted.  For anyone who missed the story, it was a paid editorial internship for a magazine/news blog about the Olympics from a business/political angle.  Yeah, exactly my interests all over the place.  I had an interview yesterday and a "writing test" today.  I showed up to the writing test, and the boss there set me up and gave me this spiel about how they like to use present and future tense in their articles, and not to say "this happened" or "yesterday."  They gave me two articles to summarize, one of which was about a meeting that happened yesterday.  So I figured that it would be okay to use the term "yesterday" because it gives a sense of time ("when," of course, being one of the essential facts in a news article).  The boss read the first sentence of my story, saw that word, and said, "Yeah, that's exactly what I told you not to do," then stopped reading and said that he'd call me.  I've been to enough job interviews to know that "we'll call you" means the exact opposite.

I was so upset earlier, but now I'm just pissed at the company.  My mom and I both think that they weren't necessarily looking at my writing skills with that test, but seeing how I responded to criticism or whatever (for the record, I offered suggestions as to how to fix the "problem" in the story because as a writer that's what you do).  If so, that's some shady fucking shit and I don't want to work for a company that feels the need to "test" its potential employees through tricky means.  I'm very honest and up-front with people, and I expect that same courtesy to be paid back to me.  I don't do well with subtlety, sorry.
 
Secondly, looking back, I realize that the interview itself was pretty crappy on their part.  I did exactly what was asked of me- I showed up on time (even after having to reschedule the interview), I asked all questions asked of me, and talked more on the topic than was asked, and I was polite and well-spoken.  The interviewers, on the other hand, asked really terrible questions.  The boss, for example, saw where I went to high school and asked if I still lived there or visited there often.  And another interviewer asked me what classes I took last semester and why I liked them.
 
...what?  That has no bearing on my writing/editing skills or the topics of the job.  Ask me about my favorite athletes.  Ask me what I like about the sports I follow.  Ask me about my writing style.  Give me a piece of copy to edit.  ANYTHING THAT RELATES TO THE GODDAM JOB.
 
So I'm ready to call it a wash.  If they do call me back to offer me the job (which probably won't happen), I'm ready to explain to them that I am a well-qualified candidate, and I deserve better than to have shady tricks pulled on me when I'm the one who would be doing them a favor.  My current job (for which, btw, I have no qualifications) pays better than that internship and gives me better hours anyway.
 
It's just so frustrating.  I know I'm the best-qualified candidate they're going to get for that job, and if they would rather try to trick me into failing at their tasks, that's their problem.  I have way better things to do with my time.
