Back in the Saddle Again

I am unspoiled. I am happy, geekily, joyously delirious about going to Borders at midnight and getting my book, and then I shall read.

And with any luck, they will not schedule overtime on Saturday morning. Although I realized this afternoon I have an online class on Saturday morning, so I couldn't work even if I wouldn't be reading.

I have been working overtime every day this week, still not going to the gym, but eating okay and, I guess, maintaining.

I am still not used to where the "end" key is on my keyboard, and I keep hitting "ctrl-delete" rather than "ctrl-end" to get to the bottom of things.

I have two reviews due Friday, a writer's meeting tomorrow, and Potterdammerung on Friday night. I hope I can get 'em done. I was going to do more on them this evening, but other than putting together my general structure, I didn't actually get any WRITING done. Hopefully I might have a chance tomorrow before the meeting, depending on how long the contractors take (we've talked to two contractors now). I can't wait to bake in my new kitchen...

I suppose I have to get some sleep now. I never seem to have any time at home to do anything...

Good and kindly readers informed me the "story" I was working on was basically a big chunk of backstory and had no business standing on its own - these are things I occasionally need to know, because I can't see them myself. I am in their debt. But I'm also once again floundering on the rocks of writing.

I didn't know CostCo had them early!!! I'm all atwitter. I hope it's going to be worth the wait...

I'm almost tempted to also pick up the audio book, so I can listen to it, too (especially when I can't read) but an unabridged 700+ page audio book is going to be a little on the pricey side, I think...

Love the new icon!

It's good to get valuable input on your writing. Was this the online one you joined?

I had to make that one when I got the DVDs, of course. *g*

It's the nanomowhinging community; some good writers there, and since everyone's a procrastinator, I can feel guilty amongst others too busy to keep up as we should. When there IS commentary, it's good. My e-mail online group is currently handling the full novel, and THEY have been providing staggeringly good feedback, as well.

That's what I'm working on out on the laptop, is the next trimmed down, beta-approved, first-three-chapters book proposal for the next agent on the list...

Go, you!

Now I just have to FINISH it and get it in the mail!

Derned weekend of reading! *g*

Potterdammerung Activities
What are you and B doing? Chase is coming over and I don't have a clue what the festivities are going to be like here. I guess we'll go to B&N and watch the freakshow, but what does one DO?

Re: Potterdammerung Activities
B will probably spurn such activities, one because she's not as nuts about it as I am (there isn't exactly scorn, but more tolerant amusement of the whole thing), and two because staying up past midnight turns her into a zombie; however, sillymagpie and I will go to Borders, shop a little, probably have some tea, and wait for them to pass out the books at midnight. Mostly what it entailed on the night OotP came out was just... hangin' at a bookstore. Which is rarely an onerous chore, to be honest. As I recall, I ended up bringing home far more than just one book.

While I AM around ten years old in spirit, I probably won't dress up or anything (although I did do Minerva one Halloween).

Darn. If that cat just had a little green lizard hanging out of its mouth it would be a dead ringer for my mother's cat.

It's actually pretty close to being a dead ringer for our cat, too (see icon) - there's a lot of similarity between the long-haired black fellows. *g*

i printed out the bit you posted at nano but haven't had a chance eto read it yet. I'm drowning in classwork (note i've not yet done Link either)

Like I was telling the folks over there, I have some ideas, but I may just flesh them out and let it go where it will, rather than holding it to the 4500-word short story limit, since I now know it's not standing alone as a short story!

Jul. 20th, 2007 02:45 am (UTC)
nods. i run into that ALL the time. Yukio's story was meant only to be a short story...
