do you know what makes me mad about "cloverfield"?

i've been working on this story, and submitting, and then working on it, and then submitting it (i think i might done got it, this time) called "dragon came to galveston to die", about a big motherfucking monster that wanders ashore ahead of a hurricane on galveston island in tejas. the monster walks ashore, and then it fucking dies. no parasites. no military response. no gojira.

anywho, now every editor in the land is going to assume i watched handcamerafield and wanked out a bastardized version of it with a hurricane.

not true.

i've been toying with this one long before j j abrams infected the web with his viral marketing. see my local writer buddies who saw early drafts...

blah movie people. blah. blah on all of you.

Ah, don't worry about it--even the most viral of videos doesn't reach everyone (hey, I haven't seen it) and the story sounds cool. Your writing will make the difference anyway. Let me know when you sell it so I can pick up a copy. :)
