Now to deal with the PRETENDER'S CROWN proposal, which I really ought to do today. Short of a miracle, I expect I won't reach my 300K wordcount for the year, but that's all right, really. It's been a sort of emotionally exhausting year, writing-wise.
I did have the appalling thought that if I wrote the two books that are contracted as due in 2008, did a dozen comic scripts, revised ANGLES, and did just one other project I'd be looking at somewhere around 450K in 2008. That is *not* like taking it easier. Fortunately, I suppose, not all of that actually *has* to be done.
What does have to be done is a shower and some lunch and a bit of shopping for food. And a walk. I think I gained forty-eight pounds over the last two weeks.
