REMINDER: The Metatropolis contests are still open!!

Deathmosey proceeding. ~2000 words so far today on three different projects, and I mosey on.

[14:32] matociquala: This story still needs a title that does not suck.
[14:33] stillsostrange: Yeah, so do many of mine.
[14:34] matociquala: Right now it's either Little Furry Animals or Indigenous Fauna Of The Pacific Northwest.
[14:34] matociquala: Neither of which really floats my goat.
[14:34] tanaise: Fur Loving Criminals
[14:34] tanaise: Do goats float?
[14:35] tanaise: What am I saying.  Clearly they don't float if they're unimpressed.
[14:35] stillsostrange: With floaties they do
[14:35] tanaise: Fine Young Animals
[14:35] matociquala: You need an accessory to float your goat
[14:36] tanaise: *tries to think of other bands to canibalize*
[14:37] matociquala: It's more challenging than floating a boat, which requires only water.

Things I googled today: Does Coors have a twist cap? Actual wording of a MacBeth quote. Just how big IS a cave bear, anyway?

We're getting a lot of use out of that Danny Brady's Kitchen set, I tell you what.



Soon I will go climb. Afterwards I will come home and eat. Then there will be still more deathmosey.

Score! Really wonderful and complementary review of Chill by Russell Letson in this month's Locus. Not only did he like it, he seems to have gotten it, which makes a writer's heart glad. 

Quote:

"But even with all the slow revelation and sight-seeing, there is still a rising-action-and-climax structure, and it comes on with an unexpected bang and a rush of revelation in an aptly-titled final chapter. The pleasures of the trilogy include those of the epic narrative married to those of the travelogue and the fictive history. Bear is exploiting all of these quite thoroughly."
