early morning blog entry  

This is my early morning “warm up the fingers before I start the real writing” blog entry, where “early morning” means about 9:30, which really isn’t very early at all. And it won’t be posted until sometime tonight when I go over to my parents’ house to use their internets. Not the point. *squinchy face*

It boggles my little mind in a turrible way that today is the first of July, and the second half of the year has begun. It’s been an extremely chaotic half-year, and I wouldn’t mind it one bit at all if the second half settled down some.

To that end, let’s see what I’ve got on my plate:

- finish writing CAULDRON BORNE
- write a proposal for THE IMPERATOR’S HEIR (asap)
- finish my “From Russia, With Love” revisions (asap)
- go to ComicCon*
- launch Chance
- hopefully sell & write THE IMPERATOR’S HEIR
- get the next six Chance issues written
- go to MeCon
- go to the Nickelback concert :)
- go to London for a book signing
- go to Octocon
- go to South Carolina to be a teacher how to write
- hopefully go to WFC in Calgary

Oh yes. That looks *much* less frenetic, doesn’t it? *rolls eyes*

While we were unpacking, I discovered pair after pair of cute pants which totally don’t fit me because I re-gained 25 pounds. It is a new month. It is a new house. It is a new town. It is my proclamation that I’m going to stop eating so much damned junk food (which really is my downfall: I love sweets, sigh) and get back into all those skinny pants. There’s a yoga class tonight. I’m going to go to that. So mote it be.

Today I need to write 4431 words, which will get me to 50K on this book.

Here I go.

(and, at the end of the day when i’m actually posting this…)

I only actually wrote about 3K, which isn’t enough, but, well, *shrug*, it’s what I wrote. I’ll try to make up the other 500 words tomorrow. We’ll see. I *did* go to the yoga class, which was invigorating, and…

…and I just got notification that TAKE A CHANCE should be in the July Previews at the end of the month for a September release. ZOMG. This might really be happening.

*If you’re going to ComicCon yourself, and we have not made arrangements to meet, please email me at cemurphyauthor@gmail.com so we can!

Good luck with the weight - and hope you made the word count.

How's ted? And your folks?

Miss you here. See you when you have the book written. (evil grin)

You're coming to Calgary, maybe?!?!? Eeek! Let me know if you do so I can track you down to sign all my copies of your books :P

It is my hope that we'll be coming to Calgary. I'd really like to go. I'll keep you posted via my blog, at the very least. :)

Good LORD. I need a nap after reading all that.

Where are you going in SC?
kitmizkit on July 2nd, 2008 10:51 am (UTC)
Myrtle Beach! I'm going to be teaching at the South Carolina Writers Workshop at the end of October. :)

Ooooh! Oooooh!

We should totally meet in San Diego.

ZOMG! You're going to SDCC?!?! WE HAVE TO MEET UP!

o.o *giggles* *hugs*

I see a great need.

The exercise bike, with twin keyboards instead of handlebars, and a dynamo powering your PC.
kitmizkit on July 2nd, 2008 10:55 am (UTC)
you have seen my keyboard, right?

The Bellinghmanbellinghman on July 2nd, 2008 11:01 am (UTC)
(Link slightly malformed)

Indeed, that's my starting point. Now replace the flat seat with a saddle, add a five point harness (because you can't hold onto the keyboards, and we don't want you falling off), and pedals.

Oh, oop. And I don't seem to be able to edit it, either. Bother. Oh well. :)

*laughs8 Sounds awesome. I want one! :)

You need to meet up with Chris Sims of the-isb.com while you're in SC. Although I'm not sure the world could handle that combination...

*goes to look at the-isb.com and laughs*

Yay! on Chance!!!

Boo on the pants. Perhaps we could do some long distance mutual support on the lose weight by not eating so much crap thing.
