If the answer is infinite light, how come we sleep in the dark?

Progress notes for 20 May 2007

All the Windwracked Stars

New Words:  1,704 really exhausting words
Total Words: 23,264
Deadline: November 1
Reason for stopping: end of the bloody chapter thank god, and out of this stupid flashback. The dirty deed is done. I swear, the passages I'm revising from the old draft are seventeen times harder than the ones I'm writing from scratch. But, I just cut eight pages of pointlessness and replaced it with two paragraphs of expo.

Show, don't tell, is for character development, not always for backstory.

Present-day narrative recommences in Chapter 5.

woof! the S and S thing is nasty!

Love the wordcounts and the Word unknowns btw.
S&S = shifty and shitty.

but black rice sounds good. how do you make it?
You buy black rice and steam it, and then mix the hot rice with coconut milk and a little sugar.


i forgot there was such a thing as black rice. my brain is in space.
Word doesn't know crispbread nor epicanthic?
I just got the latest Booklist-- have you heard that Carnival is in their list of top 10 SF/Fantasy reviewed between May 2006 and now? In any case, congrats, and it's well deserved.
I had not.
