Dear Self  

Dear Self:

I do not know how it is you manage to end up eyeball-deep in multiple projects at once even when you’re trying not to. Please remember that you are in fact trying not to; that’s probably the only thing keeping you from writing another novel in the next five weeks.

Oh wait.

Dear Self,

Please try to remember that although you have accepted the Book Race challenge (in *solidarity*, dammit, you are not the one who laid down the challenge!), you wrote 1200 words on it yesterday as a show of good faith and you do not *have* to work on it every day. Especially when some of the following projects:

- finish REDEEMER proposal
- write a short story for Alexis (due, er, yesterday)
- proposal for WP #8
- the next ORSSP story (due in October)
- Book One of The Ilialiad (due 30 September, as per Book Race)

will actually pay you, which the Book Race novel won’t. Yet. Okay?

All words are good, wherever they're added.

Hee. Really, the Ilialiad?

They ("They", the publishing industry) will never let me get away with it, but since I'm writing it on spec for my nephew I figure I can call it whatever the hell I want to. :)

I will almost certainly not be using the Iliad as source material (the Odessey, maybe, but not the Iliad), but I do love the name. :)
