oops.

I started making icons last night before “The Invisibles” came on tv, and came back upstairs to finish one off before bed after the show, and, er, note to self: I should not start making icons at 10 at night. I got to bed before midnight, but only because I forcibly turned the computer off. :) Iron Man icons, all from the trailers or promo shots, so no spoilers. They’re goodies for rhienelleth and for zootdingo, mostly. :)

my tbr list

I saw this over at League of Reluctant Adults and thought what a great way to procrastinate! I think I’ll do one too!: a summary of my TBR list. I’ve gotten mine down to around 40 books, so this isn’t an entirely impossible meme to play around with. (Mind you, I’ve done that by setting a moratorium on buying new books last *August* until we had at least half the TBR shelf cleared. I’ve bought _no books_ (um, except the 3 I got Trent to buy for me in the States) since last November, which month was excepted because we went to WFC.)

I completely forgot that I had an interview going up at Dear Author today. It’s my First Sale Story, which I still think is pretty funny. :) (Dear Author also gave me a quite nice review of TQB, which I thought was, well, nice of them. :))

I actually wrote some New Material today. Only about 1500 words, and I ended up moving what had been the end of this chapter into another chapter, so now I’ve got 10 or 15 pages to write to finish this chapter. Again. But then I’ve also only got that much, probably, to finish the next one, and I’ve got 2700 words or so of stuff I’ve already written that goes into either the next one or the chapter after that, and…and, well, look, I’ve only got 3 squares of the Novelist’s Event Horizon Chocolate left, so I can’t have more than 3 chapters left.

Anyway, I’ve stopped writing for the day but I’m feeling quite enthusiastic about writing tomorrow. There’s a lot of stitching together left to do, but there’s enough material already written that maybe it won’t be too traumatic. I think I’ll walk less tomorrow, and write more.

Now, however, I think I’ll go throw myself on Ted’s mercy and plead for dinner, because SO HUNGRY!
