Wet hair and a shower curtain:

And a nice view of my diastema!

But the important thing is--first turtleneck of the year. I was actually cold at the start of my run this morning. YES!

tea today: the last of the coconut chai that coffeeem sent. That's sugar-free tapioca, if you were wondering. It's slightly better than it sounds.

blame it on my a.d.d.

So I've put up a big post about the singularity and diversity and the changing face of SFF prodom over at Charlie's Diary, where I occasionally guest blog.

It proves beyond a doubt that I am a synthetic rather than a linear creature, I tell you what. trying to wrestle that pattern of thoughts into something like an argument essay was not my easiest trick.

look your love had drawn red from my hands

I am enamored--enamored--of the current permutation of my Taxi Driver Protocol (work harder on good productive days; do the required minimum on the rest). Right now, the plan is: I must write 1,000 words. If it's flowing, I can keep writing to wherever I feel like quitting: if it's not, I get to stop and do something else.

This is in preference to grinding, grinding, grinding away at the book no matter what. Because frankly? I have been working too hard for too long, and it's bad for me.

I have written four pages on Shattered Pillars, bringing me to the end of Ch. 4. I'm about to send this chunk out to some beta-readers to see if any of them like it.

So now I am going to eat some food and pay some bills (not fun, but there you go) and then read until it's time to go climbing.

The raven made a dive at a hurrying caterpillar and missed. He spoke slowly, without looking at Mr. Rebeck. “There are people,” he said, “who give, and there are people who take. There are people who create, people who destroy, and people who don’t do anything and drive the other two kinds crazy. It’s born in you, whether you give or take, and that’s the way you are...."
