things i haven’t yet done  

Things I did not do yesterday and am fairly unlikely to do today, plus, perhaps, a few other things:

- thumbnail issue 4, p1
- email Ardian with notes
- get a much better surge protector
- read the s&3
- get a beatsheet for chance #6 written

In honor of Ted Day, I made blueberry pancakes for breakfast. Yommy. Ted is making red beans and rice for dinner. *tuds of anticipatory joy* And I shall make a german chocolate cake, which is Ted’s favorite kind of cake. Mom and Dad are coming down for the day (and maybe longer). It’ll be a nice day. :)

Hm. I need to make some mood icons, clearly, because I don’t necessarily think any of the images I already have are suitable for moods like “anticipatory”. (Or I could make off with some of the Rogue mood icons, which seems like less effort. :) Later, maybe when the first 5 Chance issues are all done, I’m going to start a Chance mood theme. And maybe do a 100 icons Chance set, too. Because hey, I’LL HAVE ALL THE ORIGINAL ARTWORK AHAHAHAH).

If I was a really good person I’d go write my words. I’m not sure I’m that good a person, today.

"*tuds of anticipatory joy*"

What, pray, is a "tud"?

It's like going "thud", only without the "h", and therefore presumed to be cuter, or something. :)

Happy birthday to Ted, who prepares you food and makes you happy and helps you with the sticky bits in your writing and thus is forgiven for being a constant reminder that the rest of us males are mere mortals!

*laughs* I'll pass that on to him. :)

I've never heard the word "beatsheet" before... what's it mean?

A friend in my writing group pointed me here after I accidentally stumbled onto Heart of Stone, which she'd been trying to get me to read for ages and I didn't catch on. Best book I've read in a really, really long time. Just wanted to say so. :) I'm looking forward to reading more.

Oh, I'm glad you enjoyed it! Yay! :)

A beatsheet is a short synopsis written out so each major "beat" of an issue--each scene, basically--is put down in more or less the right order and form to shape the issue. They're used in scripts more than in novels.
