The glamour!: It's time to take the garbage out again! Also, I suffered through PotC:2 last night. My god what a terrible movie.


Query: Given that your books run to 110K, why is novel_in_90 shooting for 67,5? Is 67,5 even saleable?

Difficult Person
It is if you're Cory Doctorow. *g*

Because if you read the introductory post and the community info, you will note that at no point is it said that the object is to complete a draft of anything.

It's to work on one thing consistently for three months. Or, more precisely, to make atheilen do her homework.
::is duly chastised for Not Reading The Manual::
Also, I suffered through PotC:2 last night. My god what a terrible movie.

You. Are. Dead To Me.
Heh. I just hope your taste in literature is better than your taste in film. *g*
My taste in all things (ALL things, I say!) is beyond reproach. You just keep digging yourself in deeper now, y'hear?

Insult my taste and you insult your own books, madame.
Well, yeah, but everybody knows I'm just a genre hack.

Seriously, there was like 40 minutes of good film under that bloated atrocity, struggling to get out.
There I am with you completely; I would have said "cut it by a third", because I think there's a good 90-minute movie in there.
I think there's half a good movie in there, and they bloated it to two three-hour ones. :-P
::disinvites you to my birthday party, at which there will be PONY RIDES::
Yeah! What e said!
How can Word... *pauses to check AppleWorks*

Oh, it wants spider web. How irritating. Spider-web works, though.
I suffered through PotC:2 last night.

Potsie 2: The Revenge of Happy Days?

Passion of the Christ 2: Jesus Rises and this Time He's Pissed

Nevermind, I was gonna ask you what movie you'd seen, but I googled "PotC" and got my answer. The internets are our new brain. Hail to the posthumanity.
