    Is it comic con yet? Is it, huh? Is it, huh? Is it????

    I saw on facebook that Jan got her tickets, so it must be coming up fairly soon-ish. I am already to be deeply crushed and disappointed.

    *puts on deeply crushed and disappointed hat*

    Most certainly a well known name.

    From personal experience (in another field), the dilemma tends to be this: either you announce nothing and people think you're not doing anything, or you announce something, and by doing so cause its release date to be anything but what you announced. In the same way, if you talk about your project a lot people get bored of hearing about it, and if you don't nobody knows about it when it's released.

    Awww...poor Looney! Trust me, nobody *ever* posts when/how one wants. Why do you think Delenn of Mir calls herself Thread Killer?

    Thanks for understanding, folks. Just to be clear...you won't catch me getting upset about concerns about timing or whether other work will get in the way. I may have a response to those concerns but they're perfectly legitimate. And I doubt anybody's any more aware than I that JMS is really bad at guesstimating the time something will take when it's at the mercy of studios and PR folks (there's a reason why I open up the Skywatch Game to a full year, after all ).

    No, what gets on my nerves is the 'why doesn't he give us regular reports' and 'we should have heard by now that he's at X stage' when the reality is that he's never done so - and probably never will. Oh, and don't get me started on one like yesterday (elsewhere) who decided that even though JMS doesn't own B5 (except the feature film rights, of course) that there's 'always a way' for him to bring back the series 'if he really wanted to'. Well, sure - if he wanted to do B5 as shadow puppets on his wall, right?

    Reasonable doubts only make sense. When 'Red Mars' was on the table with JMS as showrunner, I had a feeling that it might interfere with plans for the B5 feature - and made a point of mentioning that when the B5 script came up in conversation. I wasn't concerned about Sense8 so much because at that point writing the script was all that was on the table and JMS can (and does) write everywhere and any time. Witness his recent tweet that he was turning out *40 pages per day* in order to meet deadlines. That's one third of a movie script. So when people complain about him working on stuff other than concentrating on the B5 feature, mostly I just smile.

    What do I think is the most likely thing to cause the feature to take a back burner? Paying work. That's always taken precedence over his personal projects, be it comic books of the Crusade 'Hell' books.

    All I'm asking is that, knowing that any news is likely to be coming next month, maybe the complaints can take a little lower volume for a while. Thanks.

    Jan
