Progress notes for 1 June 2007

All the Windwracked Stars

New Words:  1098
Total Words: 34,747 (which is cheating, because like 14 pages of that is stuff I salvaged from the old draft and now have to grovel through and clean up, which means the gross wordcount will probably be in equilibrium or dropping for the next few days.)

Tomorrow, I need to figure out what the kitten with a whip is up to. Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!

Deadline: November 1
Reason for stopping: quota, scene. I was going to do more, since I have the evening to myself, and then I realized that I was not following Rule One*, and decided to make macaroni and goat's cheese instead, and play guitar, and do some math, and watch DVDs.

Today's words Word don't know:  deathwish, upturning, windwracked, candleflames, meadhall, holo, kickboxer, regrouting, bootheel, nuanced, holmgang, pantherine.

I just love the vocab lists for these books.

Words I'm surprised Word do know: titillating 
Darling du Jour: She ordered slivovitz, which could under no circumstances ever have been in contact with a real plum, and wondered if it were brewed in the same bathtub as the gin.

Good lord, when did Muire develop a sense of humor? It's a lame one, admittedly. But it's a one.

Mean Things: watching the boy you like smooch another boy. kicked in the mouth.
Miles to Rivendell: 213.5. Stupid hobbit got hisself stabbed and now he's just dead weight, really.
Medical TMI: So yesterday at about 2 pm, the swelling around my piercing started going down. I know this, because ever since then it's been giving up little yellow crystals of lymph, and that nostril has returned to flexibility.
Mammalian assistance: summer is here. I can tell because the cat didn't come to bed last night.
