thinks to do  
With any kind of luck this is the last significant Thinks list of the year...

by Thursday/Saturday:
- revision pass on older nephew's book
- put together Gryphon Beach Tales book for younger nephew
- write "Don't Wreck Your Soul"
- write the next Kickstarter short story

by end-of-year:
- write the Terri Windling short story commission
- get as much as possible done on the ElectriCity script
- get Easy Pickings up on Amazon etc

Right now that short story commission--I will write the winner a short story of their own in time for Christmas!--is resting at $200, but here's the thing: the current high bidder is Bill Schafer, the dude who owns Subterranean Press! Now, I actually think this is pretty clever and funny of him, but do you really want to let the chance for a commissioned CE Murphy short story get away to a publisher who could buy one from me at any time? I'm just sayin'!

other thinks:
- get presents wrapped
- get presents in the mail
- get photos off camera
- find the pattern
- other stuff as they occur

>- write "Don't Wreck Your Soul

So I shouldn't taunt that I already got my editorial notes back on my story?

dude, not only have you got your editorial notes back but you've got your kickstarter novella done. you are SO FAR AHEAD OF ME. *dies*

yeah well. I still have two novels to finish/polish, write up two new proposals, write two (three, actually) short stories, and do the revision notes on PSI #4, as soon as M gets it back to me... all in the first 6 months of 2012.

Oh, and get "Practical Meerkat" ebook ready for a February launch.

So I'm not so much "ahead" as "shuffling the workload."

...*attempts to count*

1 novel, 1 novella, 4 short stories in the first (well, 4 months) of 2012.

You win. :)

for various levels of defining "win."

I'll see you at the Brokedown Writers Recovery Home...
