wire in the blood, writing shadow unit todd remorseful

invented memories. i did burn all the books.

It has been a very, very busy two days.

First of all, still can't see out of my right eye, but at least it hurts a lot less. I'll take what I can get. Dear cornea, please grow back now, kthx.

Second, stayed up until three am last night watching the first series of Wire in the Blood. Yeah, I'm in love. And I'm also totally hooked on the idea of Robson Green playing Solomon Todd, now, which works out well, because I have been wanting to make a Todd icon. So I can have two for the priceof one.

Third, yesterday I was solicited for a proposal for a YA SF novel with lesbians (yay!), so I have a kind of secrit project going. Being me, of course, I can't exactly manage to keep is secret, though there is no guarantee it will sell and I can't tell you who it's for--but anyway, sometime this fall, I'll be producing fifty pages and a synop on the Heroic Hookers Of The Steampunk West (a book I have been wanting to write for a while, so yay!) envisioned as a YA novel.

Yeah.

This is me smiling.

Fourth, today was entirely devoted to work on the next episode of Shadow Unit, Holly Black's "Not Alone," and now that I have seen it in a somewhat completed form I can tell you it is going to be awesome. Where by awesome, of course, I mean appalling. And, well. See icon.

Todd always knows what to say.

Anyway, I blew off climbing today (it was sort of a collective blow off, what hey) and got my part of that done.

And now I am going to have a glass of wine (okay, a second glass of wine, on top of the two pots of tea consumed earlier) and I am going to fall over for a while.

Eye doctor appointment tomorrow evening (hopefully he will tell me some good news), and other than that I think I'm declaring the rest of this week TIME OFF, as I appear to have written some 11,000 words in the past week.

Honeydew list for the rest of whenever:


  • Write Grail

  • Write a proposal for The Heroic Hookers Of The Old West (now! with steampunk teenaged protagonists!) and hey, maybe even think of a title for it

  • Revise The White City and its attendant chapbook, which might be called The Forty Times Forty. Or might not. (See, part of the structural problem is that I accidentally write both of them entwined with each other, and have to cut them apart now because they turn otu not to make one story after all.)

  • Write A Reckoning of Men

  • Write Shadow Unit s3

  • Maybe write The Steles of the Sky if it sells, or do some more work on it to send back out if it doesn't.

  • Continue working on Smile

  • Schizohrenic levitation time travel vignette secret project thingy

  • Space opera thingy

  • Vampirism thingy

  • Singularity Rent novel


See above, sell some books before I starve.

Right. Where's that wine now? Oh, right, have to let the dog out first and feed these starving cats before they eat each other or else maybe me.

You had me at "YA SF novel with lesbians".

The world needs more of those.
And I'm also totally hooked on the idea of Robson Green playing Solomon Todd, now, which works out well, because I have been wanting to make a Todd icon. So I can have two for the priceof one.

*flails* THAT'S WHO MY MENTAL IMAGE OF SOL WAS REMINDING ME OF. Awesome. Hm, I wonder if my library has Wire in the Blood DVDs...
So I'm watching him, and going "this guy reminds me of somebody" and then he PLUNKS DOWN ON THE FLOOR to interview an 11-year-old kidnap victim and says "If anything we're talking about makes you uncomfortable, just raise a few fingers on your right hand. So you'll know you're in charge." And he cocks his head just so, and I'm like...


...STOP THAT. I INVENTED THAT GUY.

Always weird when that happens.
Please tell me Solomon Todd isn't going to be Robson Green. I have problems with my Todd crush already.

Green is sooooooo beautiful. Gah!
You know, it's funny--I don't see him as beautiful. To me, that's unassuming and unexceptional. *g* Isn't it amazing how two people can look at teh same face and see two different things?

That said, he does look a lot like the Todd in my head. But it's mostly the line delivery that's selling me. And the funny, constrained walk he affects in character...
Augh, like I needed another TV show to get hooked on. Curse you, Bear!

(not really)

Steampunk hooker YA novels should be called Hearts of Lead. No money necessary, just send ARCs.
You know, that's not a half-bad title. Hmmm.

(The good news is, the serieses are short.)
Please to be finding a time machine so you can go back and write that Heroic Hookers of the Steampunk West story a couple of years ago, so I can read it TOMORROW. kthxbai!

Then I would have had to not write something else.
Yay steampunk lesbian hooker novels! I would have killed for lesbian YA SF books back when I was in that target market and all I could find was the occasional Lackey side character. (but at least they were there! everywhere else had nothing.)
I love Wire in the Blood, and especially Robson Green. He plays the part so wonderfully.
Yay for Sekrit Projects! Also, time off sounds like a good thing. Shame I cannot declare some for myself right now.
And I always thought a novelist's biggest secret was euphemisms for the word thingy, rather than knowing when the use of thingy was acceptable :P


Sounds like you have some fun or should-be-fun work looming large on the horizon!
BTW, I finished Season 1 of CM today. Now waiting for Season 2 to work its way up the library hold list.
I give you an out-of-context multi-season-2 icon, featuring S2's thematic statement (drink!), in celebration.

S2 contains the episode that triggered me so bad that the only way I could cope was to stay up all night watching it five times in a row to desensitize myself.

Now THAT is some good TV.

I'll read it. With bells on.
"Write a proposal for The Heroic Hookers Of The Old West (now! with steampunk teenaged protagonists!) and hey, maybe even think of a title for it"

I am so distressed, I thought "The Heroic Hookers of The Old West" *was* the title....and I was totally happy. ;)
I have this horrible sickness where Brent Spiner keeps sneaking on to my mental stage to play Solomon Todd.
Horrible. But awesome.
Second, stayed up until three am last night watching the first series of Wire in the Blood. Yeah, I'm in love.

Woo! I've had that series on my maybe-list, now looking forward to watching it. Gracias!
Wine! Wine is a brilliant idea.
Monday was dinner with friends, Tuesday night was a meeting (semi-work-ish - Toastmasters is not exactly extracurricular for me), last night was errands and flailing around getting my internet fixed. I have preplanned to devote tonight to laundry and quiet time at home alone. And you have just reminded me of that half-sized bottle of wine I have on hand for just such an occasion :-)
