*clears throat*  
I start writing HOUSE OF CARDS tomorrow.


I did open up the proposal and synopsis and read through them (ok, I didn't actually make it all the way through the synopsis), and started fiddling around with a little bit of rewriting, but honestly, I didn't get out of bed until after 9 or out of the shower til 10, and spent what seemed like a great deal of time ridding my poor thick head of what seemed like a truly amazing amount of snot. I have a variety of other excuses, all of which are exactly that, excuses, but I evidently feel they're legitimate enough to not be much in the mood to be irritated with myself. I will be $#($%! glad to get over this cold. :P

I'm going to spend the evening reading HEART OF STONE, because I'm feeling rather disconnected from that world (no surprise; I've written two books since turning HoS in in January), which is why I hoped I'd have the HoS revisions to do before I started writing HoC. *sigh* Oh well. Reading it should help, and then maybe I'll feel warmer and fuzzier about the opening chapters to HoC.

Holy jeez. The HoS ms is 476 pages. That's the longest book I've ever written!

'k. Gonna go read now. Maybe I'll get onto my stated schedule tomorrow. :)
Current Mood: sorta headachy
Current Music: irish radio, which is weird

Doesn't it disturb you that some people write 1,000-word books?

Of course, what do I know -- my only novel draft came in at about 240 pages. Feh.

I cannot imagine writing 1000 page books. It scares me. I expect QUEEN'S BASTARD to come in around 600 pages, and that seems pretty appalling to me.

Ok...this is completely off topic, but I had a quick question for you. I noticed that you have been "listening" to Ted play ddo quite frequently. Have you played? Is it worth looking into? I haven't been able to chat with any players and was just curious.

It's not my kind of game at all. Ted's enjoying it quite a lot, it seems.

Hope you're feeling better soon! Here are some nice hypnotic pandas to keep your brain company. They work best in combination with lots of cold medicines...or alcohol...

I've been sent...
I've been sent by your friend Anna who has pointed me to your website and books. I read your teaser for Urban Shaman, and I must say, I really like it! I'm pretty picky about the books I read, but I'm definitely planning on picking yours up! Keep up the good work, and I look forward to reading more from you! :)
