been a long week, somehow  

I don’t know why, but it’s been a long week. But the proposal for the fifth Walker Papers is turned in, and I’ve given up on NNWM. I’m going to write the Morrigan short story next week, and if I get done with that before the end of the week I’ll go back to NNWM and do as much as I can, but copy edits for PRETENDER’S CROWN are due in, and Dublin City Comic Con is next weekend, assuming I get paid. Well, it’s next weekend even if I don’t get paid, but we won’t be going if I don’t. :) Anyway, so maybe I’ll see about doing as big a chunk of TRUTHSEEKER in December as possible. Because that always works, what with the holidays and all. :)

I think I actually *am* going to take the weekend off. Read a couple books, maybe make some icons. But not work. My brain is tired.

Random icon question: I want to do a set of mood icons. I’ve seen them in various sizes, ranging from V. Tiny (which I won’t be doing) to almost-100×100 size. Do people have any kind of actual preference for mood icon sizes?

- email *more* to FPI
- write Morrigan short story
- read & comment on other short story
- send photo to CI guy

I'll Nano for you sweetie. I'm planning on an extra 20K for mine, and I'll share it with you.

ooh. I love the Walker Papers.

I actually like them small and unobtrusive, otherwise I find them distracting.

Smallish are preferable unless they are used sparingly. Also, weekends off are good :)

My dear old thing! (That's a catchphrase of cricket commentator Henry Blofeld, who is a dear old thing himself! But I suspect you're not into cricket. Yet. Though the Ireland team ain't bad. Better at the moment than England, who are losing left, right and centre, chiz.)

Anyway, speaking as someone whose nano novel has turned into bubbles and floated away, bursting into pretty but useless colours (NO chemistry between the MCs, NO proper characterisation, NO coherent worldbuilding - gah! It needs more Cogitation. Gah! again.) I can only say how much I admire you for even _thinking_ about Nano when you have so much else on your plate.

I also want to say that I'm reading 'The Queen's Bastard' and I love Belinda so much. I like the echoes of Tudor-ish times, too; but the best thing about the book is Belinda herself. She seems able to cope with everything that's thrown her way. Thank you!
