I ran very far this morning (especially considering the heat), and spent that time thinking about my story for Hieroglyph, which I am currently working on. It all seems to have come together, and now that I've shoveled out my inbox a little, I plan to spend the rest of the day working on it. The exciting thing is that apparently I am starting to rebound from the post-novel ennui and the deadline-based braindeath, and I'm actually excited about the story and full of ideas.
After that, I have to get back to the much-delayed "Dark Leader," and a Sekrit Projekt. And, of course, Karen Memory. At least I have a week or so before I have to leave for my next convention, which is Space City Con in Houston, which should be awesome!
After I ran, I had to stuff my face with STAT cake and ice cream to keep myself from keeling over. Out Of Breakfast Error. 0.0
