we like pop. we like soul.we like rock. but we never liked disco.

As I write this (I will post it later) I am working on my laptop in a cafe. I am not fooling anyone.

And now I am home and it's later.

skogkatt made it down for the study date, and we were virtuous together. Not only did I get 2700 words on Grail, which puts me at 103 pages and 20,000 Word words.

One quarter of a goddamned book.

Yeah, I had forgotten how satisfying that is.

And I just filed my copy for a book review. So my wordcount for the day is around 3500K, and I am taking tomorrow (the hell) off.

A convenient thing about the [bracket notes] thing as I write. It gives my internal editor a place to put its bile and grue, without actually slowing me down long enough to think of the right word.

It's almost like how fast I could write when I didn't know how.


Books read since last update:

47. Margaret Ronald, Spiral Hunt
[comments redacted pending formal review elsewhere]


48. Robert Charles Wilson, Julian Comstock
Oh, my God, I loved this. It's everything those Orson Scott Card books should have been, and more so.


49. N. K. Jemisin, The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
[comments redacted pending formal review elsewhere]


And a nice boy gave me his comic book at the climbing gym tonight, and it looks awfully pretty. So I shall read that tomorrow, and maybe the Girl Genius omnibus I have not read yet. And then I will tell you about them.

Comments

YES! I adored Julian Comstock. It's not only brilliant, it's sly.
Seriously.

The book he gave me is kind of Jeff Smith style, with awesome trees. (Totally different character designs, mind. It's just the... feeling of it.)

He climbs a lot better than I do. Not sure what I can do about that....

Much better than being eaten by them.
Girl genius... uh uh uh... (beats head with fists, makes happy fan noises)
3500? I am awed.
And envious of your proximate writing colleagues. I'm rather isolated here sometimes.
There's a lot of them just one state up, somehow, and we have small states on this coast. *g*
We have a small country, but we don't have the travel habit for such things.
I come from a large state (California), which gives me an inflated sense of reasonable driving distances. People on the East Coast, and in Europe often seem surprised at drives I don't think much about.
what always weirded me out in Nevada was that people wouldn't drive half an hour across town to go out to dinner.
Really? Weird. I'm not terribly familiar with Las Vegas culture, though. I have a friend who lives there, and I've passed through on several occasions, but it's not my kind of place, so I haven't spent much time there overall. Still, that surprises me.

Ooh, me too! (Finally...) I'll be curious to hear what you think of it.

Which Orson Scott Card books? (The Alvin Maker books? he asked hopefully.)
Yep, those.
Oooer. *adds it to the reading list*
