Blessed are those who trunk, for they are learning something.

Kit wants to know, if he's dead, why he has to put up with frozen hair.

The bad news is, when Christopher Marlowe was my age, he had been dead for three years. The good news is, when Shakespeare was my age, he was just hitting his stride. *g*

And with that thought to burgeon me, a seven-day "Didn't Work" from JJA.

I'm having a things-that-fuck-with-my-Zen sort of day. Like well meaning emails from friends agitating for news about the novels I have out in submission or at contests. I appreciate the love, guys, but the fact of the matter is that I have no control over what happens with those books, there probably won't be any news for two or three years in any case, the chances are slim that any of them will sell (or win) anyway--and thinking about it does nothing but stress me out when I need to be working on this book.

If there's any news, you'll know. If you don't know, there isn't any news. And very well may not be until 2010. And since I have no control over what happens at this point, asking me about it every couple of weeks will only serve to stress me out.

Also, organizational and management and catherding phneh with A&A is making me nuts.

And Kit is still standing at the bottom of the stairs. But it's snowing now, so I suppose that's progress. And god, I am in a bitchy mood all of a sudden. Sorry about that.

*snrch*
*g* I thought you'd like that.

He's such a girl sometimes.

good taste in music tho'

Look into a deep dark pool
Tell me what you see - stars overhead
Echo of a midnight sky
Branches of a dream - turnings of a maze
Ripples on the surface,
currents underneath
Ripples on the surface,
stars overhead

Re: good taste in music tho'

Wheee!

There's good music out there!

Re: good taste in music tho'

...oh, yes. One of the reasons I'm so fond of The Gypsy is the music running through the book.

Weird sidenote: I wonder how long it will be before you have the ability to publish one of your books on-line and include visuals and music if you like...

Re: good taste in music tho'

Well, the multimedia revolution is sort of arriving as we speak, actually.

Re: good taste in music tho'

I used to have some Cats Laughing, the War for the Oaks stuff and a little bit more. And now I don't, and so I am sad.

Re: good taste in music tho'

I have no cats laughing, but Steve gave me his last CD. Which is amusing. I think amusing is the right word.

Yes, amusing.

On a theme of Brust/Stemple songs here, are we? (At least I assume, don't know if I have liner notes for Another Way to Travel.)

Re: good taste in music tho'

SOL!

I know, I owe you a CD. and a check. and I am bad bad bad.

Bad.

And do you want a livejournal code, so you can comment non-anonymously? I have a metric butt ton.

Yes, we are.

Steve is moving back to Minneapolis, by the way. Which means I will again be The Only SF Writer In Vegas.
Thanks. Yeah, and the worst is knowing they mean well....

And it totally corrupts the Zen.

Re: Well, get that book writ.

Oh, the synchronicity of it!

Would you believe, even now, I am writing a scene that involves Kit kicking down a door at the Green Dragon Inn?

See previous post for how to get there.

Re: Well, get that book writ.

Tell Kit that kicking down doors is not considered polite.

::You tell the *honourable* Major::

You know better than ayone how difficult it is to tell him anything.

And everyone's entitled to a bitch session every so often.

Re: Well, get that book writ.

It's a door that needed kicking in.

Re: Well, get that book writ.

They always are, apparently
