Many congratulations!

So, out of curiosity, how do the words "month off" appeal to you?

Grats on the word count. Yikes.

You know, for the first time my over-achiever brain is not going "another 40K would get you to 400K this year, and that's not very much!" so apparently the words "month off" appeal to me *highly*.

Although I did think that said "apply to you" the first six times I read it.

And thank you! :)

Hmm. Churn out one more novella... yeah, that's not so ...

Heh. Couldn't resist.

Side note: because of the font in my browser, every time I see 'Cairn Dancer' I read it as 'Caim Dancer', and get very confused. Da huh?

Well done.

(And no writing a 5000 word short story just to get the average to 1000/day, you hear!)
kitmizkit on December 3rd, 2008 06:23 pm (UTC)
986 words a day is close enough. :)

Did you say Cairn?

And aren't you supposed to be taking December easy while I work my ass off?
kitmizkit on December 3rd, 2008 06:22 pm (UTC)
*laugh* I did, indeed!

I am now taking December off. I just hadn't finished the Morrigan story, which was due Monday, so had to do that.
Sanguine Pen: 3crowsanguinepen on December 3rd, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
Ah yes Morrigan - pushy people - aren't they?

Yay! I hope you have a relaxing Christmas break.

I've finally got hold of 'House of Cards' and I'm loving it! I should have been writing Christmas cards tonight, but I _have_ to finish this book first!
kit: negotiatormizkit on December 4th, 2008 12:27 pm (UTC)
Oh, I'm glad you're enjoying it! :) And you can always do Christmas cards tomorrow... o.o :)

You didn't drop it on your foot, did you? I have written like that before, but wow...that's three books.

Choose your favorite and indulge -- champagne, chocolate, scotch...dessert...hummm....

Appallingly, it was only two books and a bunch of short stories. o.O
