can't sleep books will eat me

doctor put you on milk, cream, and alcohol.

Tomorrow, the Clarion West Write-A-Thon begins. I have committed to write a page a day, through fire, flood, SMOFing, travel, boyfriend, and four conventions. (!)

This is a fundraiser for an awesome workshop for SFF writers. You can sponsor me (or somebody else) here!

Meanwhile, I have a bunch of stuff to do today.

To-do list:

Print, sign and scan contract
change bed
Pi-Con panel signups
clean kitchen
sweep floor
cook dinner
fold laundry
finish packing books to go out Monday

you only want the things that you can't get

All book sale books are packaged to go out. Some of them (randomly selected) have extra goodies in the packages.

And it turns out that the copies of Bone and Jewel Creatures I had are actually the limited edition hardcover, only without chapbooks. So everybody who ordered one of those is getting the fancy edition at a bargain rate.


I shall mail Monday.

Now I get to finish making dinner and then practice guitar until it's time to go for a run in the (hopefully) shady cool of evening.
