criminal minds jj this is the lie

when digging deeper what you find, the skeleton is best left behind

My review of Criminal Minds 04x14 is up at Tor.com. 

And I am groveling away at Chill. Page 133. It still hasn't fallen apart in a giant heap of suck, which makes me even more apprehensive that the giant pile of suck must be around the next corner. Because I distinctly remember giant piles of suck in this book.

Maybe I got most of it the last time I vacuumed? It seems like too much to hope for, but so far it's holding together pretty well. Or maybe I'm just delusional from reading and revising it too many times.


I stole all your suck, wrote it down, and you can't have it back... pfffbbbgggttt
Did you leave the laptop on the couch at an angle? Maybe all the suck drained out into the cushions?
Look, it's there, but when you come to it, you'll know what to do. It's a Tao thing.
Groveling? You're bowing before the mighty novel and begging it to spare you?
Groveling in the programmer sense:

grovel /vi./

1. To work interminably and without apparent progress. Often used transitively with `over' or `through'. "The file scavenger has been groveling through the /usr directories for 10 minutes now." Compare grind and crunch. Emphatic form: `grovel obscenely'. 2. To examine minutely or in complete detail. "The compiler grovels over the entire source program before beginning to translate it." "I grovelled through all the documentation, but I still couldn't find the command I wanted."

Wow! I'll have to remember that. Thanks.
