criminal minds gideon kill fast

you can't keep the sky from falling anyway

Accomplished so far today:

1) 2008 year-in-entertainment review for Green Man Review
1) Short story betaread for truepennyStill to go--thank you notes and return crits on the orkshop, because people have been nice enough to review the rough draft of the snow dragons.

And maybe some work on the harpy, if I can figure out how it goes. I'd like to cross another one off my to-do list. 

Some of you will be pleased to note that last night, I wrote the first sentence of An Apprentice to Elves, and truepenny wrote the second one. Still no promises, mind you, and it's not going on any to-do lists. But there is a file with two sentences in it.

There. Ten critiques today, in various venues. I have not only justified my carbon footprint, I've also worked up an appetite. And a desire to go to the gym and go swimming, so I think I will do that after I eat. Toast and milk and honey, I think, because it's just that kind of day.

Tomorrow, I plan to pay bills and get snowed in. The glamour never stops.

It's Release Day, as arcaedia notes. The mass-market paperback of Whiskey and Water is out, and of course I urge you to go buy copies for your entire extended families and everybody you work with. Ahem. Hey, it has a man-eating pony in. Where's the bad?
