Chance winner!

Neal Levin won the printout copy of TAKE A CHANCE. Send me your address, Neal. :)

I’ve gotten the first set of character sketches back from one of the artists I asked for some sample work from. He took a (!) chance and did a few variant costumes as well as a couple sets of sketches from Chance’s traditional costume. They all look pretty awesome, with one variant that I wish I’d come up with myself. :) There is nothing quite like getting drawings of your characters from talented people. Man. So cool!

I’ve heard from one artist that I’d give my eye teeth to work with, who has asked for more information about the comic. We’ll see where it goes. This is both an exciting and exhausting process.

What else, what else, what else? No, I’m afraid that’s about it. It’s just the words and the pictures, today…

(this is worth clicking through to the larger image, IMHO)

- write 1000 words
- write cheeky email
- call about a composter
- write a letter to the letting agency
- and, yes, finish the proposal *sigh*

going to *bed*, darnit

Took an oblique look at the proposal revisions (you know, with my eyes mostly closed, so I didn’t have to see all those nasty comments*), did dishes, and partway through the dishes came up with the opening line for the revisions. So I got an extra 600 words written tonight, which makes me really happy.

I am going to go to bed now, at a far more sensible hour than I have gone the last several nights, and attempt to *sleep*, which beloved state has been escaping me for many hours each night while I lie there with my brain whirling as I try to deal with comic book excitement and the sheer number of *things* I’m trying to do. I need an enforced vacation.

In July.

*They are not actually nasty comments. I am being a melodramatic writer type. Neither of my editors is in the least bit nasty. Neither is my agent, even if she is Ms. Jackson.
