Who do I pray to to straighten out this problem?

Progress notes for 6 August 2006:


New Words:  1817
Total Words:  2467
Pages: 11
Deadline: September 1
Reason for stopping: End of scene

Stimulants:  yogurt, mint jasmine green tea, toast, watermelon, iced chai, milk
Exercise: walked about a mile. I planned to go for a bike ride, but--cracked valve! Oh Noes!
Mammalian assistance: Mebd helped me nap.
Mail: nomail

Today's words Word don't know: limerent, drawstringed, stitchery, wastrel, mudroom, unharnessed, coathooks, mons, paddereeen
Words I'm surprised Word do know: bowsprit

Mean Things: vampire smut, coathooks in the back of the neck, introduced Jack and Abby Irene, and made jack cook her breakfast.
Tyop du jour: The shy was paling behind the roofs
Darling du jour:  At the end of the war, the Iron Queen's grandmother Eleanor had been regent for a George who did not live to take the throne; she returned Captain Jardinstraat to the Dutch, but not so the park named for him and the colony it belonged to.
Jury-rigging: No real egregious patch jobs today. It all seems to be going fairly smoothly.

There's always one more quirk in the character: Sebastien likes cats. I guess that explains why he puts up with the intense prickliness that is Abby Irene, and with Jack bossing him around.

Other writing-related work: none
Books in progress: Hal Duncan, Vellum
The glamour!: See above, busted tire valve.
