Reading -- Shadow Unit

Sometimes the best focus for writing is to not write. Take your mind completely off your stories, and read someone else's.

One of the crowdfunded things I've been greatly enjoying (though I keep putting reading the new episodes off while my own stories are flowing) is Shadow Unit. It's at shadowunit.org

If you haven't checked it out, you should!

There's something out there, something that turns people into monsters with unexplained powers. And there's a small group of FBI profilers who hunt them, trying to figure out what the anomaly is, and to catch the "gammas".

The conceit is that it's a tv series, kind of a cross between Criminal Minds and the X-files. Except the writers have creative control, so the episodes don't have to be able to be read out of order. Except there's more--there's stuff that happens between episodes. And there's stuff I haven't checked out (some of the characters have their own LJ accounts, and fans can read their blogs and even comment to them).

It's complex and riveting.

If you do check it out, don't start with this season, unless you like starting books in the middle. This season definitely has spoilers for previous seasons!

Start at the beginning.
