Progress notes

Whew. Seven critiques done today, and a wee bit of fiddling on The Stratford Man and on "The Chains That Your Refuse."

Also, I figured out how the next three scenes in SM work, which means I can connect the chunk I have finished to the next big chunk that isn't attached to the narrative as it stands. Which means if I pile up any more crits on the orcshop for "Chains" and for "This Tragic Glass," I can pull them and start posting SM from the point where I started the serious revisions.

There will be writing later on tonight, to get my wordcount on SM, I think. For now, there may very well be a nap, because holy Hell I am tired.

This Paul Simon song so utterly captures how I feel about my writing: it's astounding. I mean, there's a lot of stuff I'm not too bad at. But really, if I'm going to do only one thing in my life really well, this is what I want it to be.

See how he dances, see how he loops from side to side
See how he prances, the way his hooves just seem to glide
He's just a one trick pony--that's all he is:
But he turns that trick with pride.

He makes it look so easy, look so clean--
He moves like God's immaculate machine
He makes me think about all of these extra moves I make
All of this herky jerky motion and the bag of tricks it takes
To get me through my working day.


Oh please...

...be sure to post from the last SM chapter you did again for me *please*! I missed it!

And by the way, I forgot to mention how much I liked the title 'The Chains you Refuse' in my review. I really, really liked it. So there.

Re: Oh please...

I've got stuff I need to go back over, I think, anyway.

Re: Oh please...

Oh, glad you liked the title. It's from a Richard Thompson song.
