calendar sale!  

In honor of the upcoming holidays, there’s a Special Sale Price on my 2010 Ireland calendar! The price has been reduced from $25 to $20.95 (which, somewhat oddly, is the lowest price I seem to be able to set it at). Everybody always needs a calendar, right? It’s a sure-fire gift! :)

Apparently one good thing about getting up at 5:30 is that if you take a 2.5 hour nap starting at 11:30, it’s still only 2pm when you get up from it, which makes the day not feel wasted. I’m going to go work on my beatsheet for WORLDBREAKER, which shouldn’t be too hard as I think most of the thinking parts of it are already done, and that should let me get started on writing it tomorrow. It’s going to be another one of those Nanowrimo Is For Weenies couple of months, as the book needs to be turned in by the end of January. (actually, the whole first half of next year is going to be like that. let’s not think about it, shall we?)

Right. This is a lot like faffing around, and not much like doing the beatsheet. *gets to work*

Very much not thinking about it, yes.

BTW, will be e-mailing you some questions about Dublin hotels in a day or so...

Oh, hooray! I'm glad they're lovely! I was awfully pleased with the quality when I ordered my test calendar, so yay! Glad you are too! :)

And you know me! :)

Beatsheet? Is that like an outline?

Yeah. In comics and film, a beatsheet is a scene by scene playout, hitting the major (and sometimes minor) 'beats' of a script. It's very synopsis or outline-like, but I think of it a little differently because I write my synopses as formal paragraphs, whereas the beatsheet is just bullet points thrown up as I think of things that need to be done with the story...
