do I fall through what I might of been?

Well, I think I'm back on vacation, sort of. Which is to say, I'm at that enviable state of writerliness where I'm waiting for somebody else to do something before I can make progress on any of my projects.

Vacation, in this case, is going to consist of doing a lot of reading and research, so it's not really much like a real vacation, but there's nothing I'm supposed to be writing right now. Which is actually pretty good, all things considered, because I need some downtime and it's hard to take it with deadlines breathing down your neck.

Stories, damn them, take time to grow.

So here's what I have to do with the rest of this year:

  • Revise Chill (waiting on editorial input)
  • Write A Reckoning of Men (with truepenny) (in co-author's in basket)
  • Write Grail (have to finish Chill first)
  • Write Smile (working on it in a back-burner sort of way, but since it has no deadline, it's definitely a project for when I find it fun)
  • Sell something. Preferably One-Eyed Jack & the Suicide King (waiting on editor)
  • Write untitled Mongolrocco novel proposal (have to sell OEJ first)
  • Write post-singularity satire novel proposal (have to finish Jacob's Ladder contract first)
  • Write "On Safari in R'lyeh and Carcosa with Gun and Camera." (Yeah, still only have one sentence)
  • Shadow Unit season 3 (waiting to finish season 2)

Meanwhile, right now, I should really be taking the dog for a run.


I have in mind a fat fantasy of sorts, taking place on a secondary world, involving a major trade city and invading hordes of horsepeople. *g*

It should be a lot of fun.
Well - I'm interested. :)
Might of been?
That's what the quote says, yes.
Well I'll be dadgummed.
Pop stars, not reknowned for their grammar.
Now my eyeballs itch.
So does the GRD actually run, or does he just slink very fast? There were two Great Pyrenees at the event a couple weekends ago (and many other dogs--it was a very woofy event), and I am keenly feeling the lack of a Giant Ridiculous Dog in my life.
He slinks, trots, AND runs. He has a diversity of expression. *g*
Regarding 'On Safari' -- I followed a link to this article in Time, Oct. '31, about an expedition to the Matto Grosso to hunt "big game" with dogs. It's kind of brain-bendy & thought-provoking in the differences between now & then in worldview. I thought you might find it interesting.

I lovelovelove the title of that story, btw.
