writing gorey earbrass conscious but ver

we're made out of blood and rust.

Come to 4th Street. It's tiny and awesome.



"Green and Dying" is more or less done at 15,000 words MS, 16,250 manuscript. I might have to add one more scene. I might not.

And now I get to take a break for a while, because my next major deadline is in August, though I mean to offer to pitch back in on the Shadow Unit episode I dumped 75% of on Emma and Will.

Time to catch up on Mythbusters, by gum!

And indulge myself with that long, long delayed bout of post-novel ennui I've been fighting off because deadlines.

Comments

About 1/3 through Shattered Pillars now, and, well, "oh my, yes" isn't really an appropriate response to what little we've seen of Erem (and I suspect I'll see more before both book and trilogy are over), but it's still what I said when I read the descriptions of Erem's sky and (possibly the first) description the cause of Brother Hsiung's affliction. Plus Samarkar vs. Rahazeen Nameless! Hooray!
Mwahahahahahahaha. Yay!

Thank you!
As if my previous comment wasn't clear enough, I'm really enjoying it so far, and can only curse the fact that Steles of the Sky won't be out for a while yet. (Next year? Please?)
It's handed in, and the pub date is April!
Ah, lovely!
I'd say whatever down time you choose to take is well earned. Give the little grey cells and the fingers a breather. Been meaning to mention how glad I am that "TBIL" has become "beloved." Long may you (plural) wave.
thank you.
Totally tangentially, I see that you get a nice long quote in today's Guardian article on Lovecraft. So, so true.
Thanks! A nice, long quote, but no attribution of the source, which was a 2009 blog post at Tor.com...

*sigh*
But at least you got credited with it...
