more human than human

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

By the way, scott_lynch and I will be teaching a workshop on advanced worldbuilding at Context in September. You can read about it here!

Y'know how, very now and then, when you're editing something, you do these epic word nerd posts that show just how much crafting can go into a sentence? I love those.

Didja see that Thomas Dolby is doing the same thing with his music now? Music! And nerding! Totally check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdhwOKPdfA0
