1. The hip holster bag comes in red leather now. Because that’s MUCH MORE PRACTICAL than brown or black or grey! *dies*

2. THE PROOF JUST GOT HERE! *collapses of relief*

…it looks pretty damned cool, too. There are a couple of tweaks that need doing, but it looks very good. Hooray!

3. In a less yay sort of OMG, I did figure out what was wrong with my nephew’s book, and it’s that I’m writing the wrong book. I mean, really truly the wrong book: the book with this title should be the 4th, not the 2nd, and it means I have to throw everything out and start all over. I guess I’m doing his next book for NNWM again. :/

At least you have identified the book issue. That should relieve some stress since you can start moving again.

Not really, since it means I've written 80,000 useless words and still have very little idea of what should happen in the book. :P

Glad the book arrived and the blockage has been identified. Hugs on the work it creates.

Okay, I'm safe. If that leather had been a darker, richer, red, I would have been left with no choice but to immediately order the damned thing.

*laughs*! Such a near miss! :)

Think of it like this: You have written a partial draft of book 4. Since I assume that at least some parts will be salvagable.

There's one fight scene that might be, but actually no, the rest of it is very likely a *complete* waste. :(

Yay proofs!
I am likely to be rewriting for Nano, so we will cheer each other on. My book will come and visit your book and they can eat cake and complain about us to each other.)

... I just realised that next Nano will be fun. I mean, there is World Fantasy Con... But,hey, then you can have live Word wars... ;).

yoinking this entry to ask... did you get the links to the Thunderbird Falls photos (via FB) and did any of them work for you?
kitmizkit on October 24th, 2012 08:37 pm (UTC)
Yes! Thank you SO MUCH! <3 <3 <3

Did you contact the photog directly for full-res photos? I think both of them offered them up to you... :-)

Excellent proof news.
