Upon some research though, I discovered your new project. I have to say I'm excited once again. Pablo Coehlo's Veronika Decides to Die was one of my favorite books when I was in college. The story of a jaded, lonely woman who commits suicide and fails, ending up in a mental institution with weeks to live...sold! The exploration of society and depression, relationships that develop within a place where people live in their own reality, what is considered crazy, what is considered sane and the revelations that come to light in the last few weeks of life in a mental institution are all such good themes!
So yes...I hope that in 2010 I get to see you more often. Nevertheless you'll always be golden in my book for 7 amazing years of Buffy. But please, no Scooby Doo 3!
From what I can see here you are on the right track.
