2011 03 28 daily commute 001Today's thrilling adventure: as much work as possible on the novella formerly known as "Mobius Heart," formerly known as "REZ," formerly known as "In the House of Aryaman, a Signal Lantern Burns," formerly known as "In the House of Aryaman Burns a Signal Lantern," currently known as "In the House of Aryaman, a Lonely Signal Burns."

That may be the actual title.

I'm not sure I've ever had a story put up this much of a fight about a title. I've had them put up a fight about retitling, usually due to editorial/marketing department input. But I'd put up a fight if you tried to change my name, too, so that's perfectly understandible.

you're such a strange girl

I have completed the submission draft of "In the House of Aryaman, a Lonely Signal Burns." It stands at 20,000 words.

Now to find it a home... I suppose I should try the market I wrote it for first. ;-)

And on to revising "The Slaughtered Lamb." Which I suspect may need substantial restructuring.

not like that, oh no. not so black and white.

Well, that was an extraordinarily productive day. I'm pretty pleased with myself: I kind of think I kicked ass.

And now I have been working for ten hours straight and it's time to take the dog for a walk, put some food in me, and maybe read a book or something once I've done my slush.
