~o early one morning o~

I gotta say, this waking up early thing is getting out of hand. o.O OTOH, it's 10:30 and I've gotten 1200 words written (and I'd have had more if I hadn't spent the better part of an hour playing solitaire. I really should remove that quicklink to it.), so there's obviously something to be said for the waking up early bit.

Yesterday's thinks to do list was so successful I feel like I should make another one, but yesterday's was so successful that I don't have anything left hanging to do from it!

I'm having one of those brief crises where I think, boy, maybe everybody would rather I was writing a Blog About Writing and all of this stuff about getting up early and cleaning the house isn't what they want at all* (gosh, can you imagine?), so today people should ask me a question about something, and I will attempt to blog about it over the next few days. Writing, life, comics, book/movie reviews, complusive hair disorder, whatever.

*the truth is, I'm pretty sure I'm too lazy to keep two separate blogs, one For Writing and one For Other Stuff, so if you're reading my lj you're pretty much stuck with what you get, but still, once in a while I do have these little crises. :)

nothing much, really

knappenp is reading THE QUEEN'S BASTARD. It's fascinating to listen to his comments, because TQB is totally different from anything else I've written. Among other things, it has a cast of thousands, and will, consequently, have a cast list at the front of the book, because I'm the only one who can keep them straight, and even I needed a list for the first several chapters. Not so much for the characters as the countries, but still. Anyway, listening to him reading it makes me eager to do the revisions on it, but since the book got pushed back from this fall to next summer, the revision letter is not yet in my hands. Which is okay, because I have to finish HANDS OF CHANGE, as well as do copy edits on HEART OF STONE. :)

I should've made a list of thinks to do today, as I didn't get as much done as yesterday. More words, less Stuff. Well, I needed the words. :) And if I can get through another chapter I think I can start putting stuff back in, which would be excellent. I still think a good third, maybe half, of what I've written will end up axed, but the book's already more interesting for it. Now I'm at the "how am I going to make this all work in the time frame" problem, but that's a better problem than "hasn't too much time gone by for this little Stuff to have happened?"

I, er, also got Petite to 27th level. O.O :) And yesterday I made this icon, which I think is funny. :)
