*sulk*

There is a great big perfect full moon hanging blithely above the graveyard this morning, in a location where I could have sat and watched the entire totality of the eclipse in utter comfort at my dining room table if it had NOT BEEN BLOODY CLOUDY ON THE HORIZONS YESTERDAY MORNING. *sulks*

writing_overachiever

in 2011…

…I would like to:
- write RAVEN CALLS & (almost-certainly-not-titled-this) MOUNTAIN HOLLERS
- write 1 other (probably new series) novel
- write a book for little boys
- write 6 Old Races short stories
- write 2 or 3 short stories for anthologies
- revise RIGHT ANGLES TO FAERYLAND
- revise TRAPPER’S DAUGHTER with Sarah
- write the Joanne Walker/Jane Yellowrock mashup with Faith Hunter
- get that writing gig I haven’t yet applied for

and
- go to EasterCon
- go to DragonCon
- go to Orycon
- go to Alaska
- (P-Con & Octocon are givens, don’t worry)

Okay, the point of writing that all down was to make me go “You’re mad, Murphy,” and it’s worked. Good. And while I’m at it, I’d like to make a kick-ass Nebari costume for Halloween, and perhaps a Chance costume for DragonCon, and lose fifteen pounds and end world hunger and bring world peace.

(eta: just for the record, what I am actually under contract to do at the moment is write RAVEN CALLS…)
