bear by san

(no subject)

I think I'm still overtired from my loooong trip. I slept eight hours last night and would probably still be in bed if the gray dog hadn't wanted out.

My new favorite word this week is "eucatastrophe." (It was the Oxford word of the Day this morning.)

Carnival is determined to be difficult. I suspect, in fact, that it's going to be difficult all the way through, damned book. Although I think I have the plot figured out (it's really not all that intricate, but it plays intricate on TV) and I have a stack of notecards here of things I need to remember to do, so that's something.

I think I'm going to reread what I have this morning, and see what it sparks. It's be nice if I could get some momentum on this sucker. I'd like to have a draft by the end of August / early September, which is when I have to revise (thankfully it doesn't look like a rewrite but just a tweak) Whiskey & Water.

Ee. I'm almost out of summer. e.

First, shower and tea, though. And maybe pants. Pants would be good.

Ahh, priorities:

Snapshot of the thought process of a bear:

If I lost like five pounds, these jeans would be very comfortable.

Hmm.

Right now, they're just a little tight. And the other pair is a little too baggy.

I could buy more. But it's probably easier to loose five pounds than go to the mall.

Hm. On the other hand, I'm hungry.

Tune in tomorrow to discover which will win, laziness or gluttony....

all the words are gonna bleed from me and I will think no more

Maybe I'll just read all these books on my desk before I try to write the other half of this novel. Because really, my brain is quite numb.

I think the post-novel ennui finally hit.

*falls over*

*gets up*

*falls over on the other side*

*stays there for a while.*

piping voice: "Somebody hand down that copy of Iron Council up there, would you? I'm going to finish this book if it kills me."
