    Nah, he just writes the same story only he removes the cape and costume from Jessica and subtracts some of her intelligence to write Superman.

    I watched a lot of Murder She Wrote with my mother throughout the years. It's amazing how varied a writing spectrum JMS has created in his vast career. I forget about the Murder She Wrotes and the New Twilight Zones. I thought I'd never seen any of his writing when I first saw Babylon 5. I wonder how different it is creating a Murder She Wrote plot compared to a Superman plot. Is the headspace you have to be in similar at all? I can't imagine producing stories across such varied styles and media.

    Okay, the public has spoken: Tuesday June 4 at 3:00 p.m. PST I will be hosting a #MurderSheWrote Ask-Me-Anything in line with the substantial part M,SW plays in #BecomingSupermanJMS. (Photo is from Incident in Lot 7, which I wrote to cross Jessica into the film world of Psycho.)

    Got any burning questions for JMS? He's thinking of doing some Ask Me Anything sessions for each of his projects.

    Further news to jms "work day balance":

    When asked "... When necessary for certain projects, have you found any tricks to modify your internal schedule?"
    JMS retweets (mar. 15, 2019):
    Not really, no. If I'm running a show and the only chance I have to write is during
    what mortals call "the day" I try to knock down a few pages knowing it's crap and I'll
    have to rewrite it later, but at least the clay is on the table. Otherwise, nope,
    fuggadettaboudit.
    Now, some people with a comparable work day schedule having ADHD, speculate about.

    JMS retweets (mar. 15, 2019):
    I rarely getting to bed before 4 a.m., so it's a natural result. The phone doesn't
    ring, no interruptions, and the brain works differently late night, more open to odd
    ideas, which is why informercials air then; at 2 a.m. the idea of buying a snuggie
    actually seems reasonable
    I do prefer MORE ODD IDEAS by jms against all thinkable snuggies.

    Proper description of his work day:

    JMS tweet (mar. 12, 2019):
    I generally write until about 4 a.m., crash for 8 hours, get up, spend a couple of
    hours trying to find my face (sadly, it's always the same face), doing meetings,
    revisions, emails and twitter, then around 7 the jet engine in my brain roars to life
    and I fly until 4.

    Jan, indeed I recall that jms did mention Babylon the mesopotamian big city of commerce as an inspiration for him.
    But the babylonian chaos versus order myth - aka vorlons versus shadows
    and in particular
    the hanging gardens of Babylon analogy to the green inner surface of the O'Neill tube
    seems to me really as a not before seen info.

    Twitter: When asked about the naming "Babylon":

    J. Michael Straczynski retweets (feb. 27, 2019):
    1) The Vorlon/Shadow conflict has its origins in the Babylonian myth that the universe was born in the struggle between order and chaos; 2) the O'Neil tube concept reminded me of the hanging gardens of Babylon, and 3) Babylon was a place of great commerce.
    Did he state these 3 reasons so clearly ever before?
    (Well, can be a matter of my lost memory)

    Twitter: When asked about the voices talking to him:

    J. Michael Straczynski retweets (Jan. 31, 2019):

    The voices never entirely go away, they accrete like lint on a sweater. I suspect that's why so many writers turn to booze, in an effort to silence them. As a non-drinker, my only option to solicit silence involves terrorizing people on Twitter.
    <HAHAHA>
    That's pretty cool!
    Let's go twitter this night...
