That's pronounced "arse-eff."

I've just won my first SF Award!

Okay, it's a gag award. But Karin did a very nice job, don't you think?

There, Dammit

Words: 1800
Reason for stopping: I wrote the g-d scene I have been stuck on since Thursday.

Will does not *want* me close to his children. And I really can't blame him.

But the scene is done. Yay!

That plateau I've been bitching about?

I think I just got over it. And it's very freaky. Because I have no fucking clue what I'm doing different now, but it is better.

I think I've suddenly started writing literature. I'm very bemused. The last 600 words I wrote are--

--different.

How odd.

I blame the sex scenes in Dead Man in Deptford. They've been bugging me for days.
