well i rolled and a tumbled, cried the whole night long.

1,792 words today on a critical essay tentatively titled "You're on the Global Frequency," which is (loosely speaking) about the Everyman Hero In Selected Works Of Warren Ellis.

This does mean that technically speaking, I got paid to spend my morning rereading FELL, yes. Oh. The hardship.

It's about halfway done, and I have to actually reread Global Frequency before I finish it. Thank heaven for overnight shipping, since the deadline is kind of tight.

I like my job.

I think it's good work, and I'm pleased with it. And it's nice to be doing some actual paying work while I wait for my fiction brain to grow back.

I've decided that I can, in fact, have the entire month of August off, if I need it--though I do need to turn in a critique for the OWW and my

Even with a move in store (looks like we're buying that house, barring disaster--I will soon be a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and eligible for her healthcare system!), a couple of cons and Viable Paradise (looks like I will be going to WFC after all, seeing as how they nominated me for a major award and all), that still gives me four months to write 116,000 words on Shattered Pillars. No sweat, really.

(I do have.. what, two? short stories due, one in September and one in December--but I have started them both, and am just really waiting for my brain to grow back so I can write them without hating them.)

And if I get inspired before then, well, so much the better.

Let me bid you Welcome (back?) to the Bay State!
Never lived there before. I will be collecting my third New England state!


early congrats on the house! I really hope all goes through - will you be close to Boston so that we can see you when we visit?

Re: Oooh...

Not all that much closer than I am now, actually--it's in Western MA.

But I can drive into town, you know.

Re: Oooh...

For some reason I associate that area with awesome music venues - places like the Iron Horse, or Falcon Ridge festival over in NY. WIll you have good access to those?

Congratulations on the prospect of property ownership! As well as having fun (I hope!) work and travel ahead.

Re: Oooh...

I'll be about an hour from the Iron Horse and its covenues--about what I am now. *g*

Yay for WFC! We will be there as usual. With,um, a six month old. Not as usual.

Adventures build character, right?

Yay on the house too. Houses, um definitely build character. :)

Sometimes houses are characters!
Welcome to MA. But don't get your hopes up. The healthcare system is definitely NOT all that.

Global Frequency

Did you know that Fox shot a pilot for a Global Frequency series which never was picked up? You can find it at myriad pirate sites.

Re: Global Frequency

Yes. The pirating is actually the reason it wasn't picked up. And I think it was the WB, not Fox.

Re: Global Frequency

I hadn't heard the bit about the pirating upsetting the Suits but it wouldn't surprise me.

It was WB, not Fox. My Bad.
Yay, Massachusetts!

(also, I cannot read the phrase "major award" without thinking of "A Christmas Story"....)
You'll put your eye out.
Well, yay. We shall meet at Philippi WFC. It's about time; I'm bored with missing you at cons.
When I said Philippi, I did of course mean Philippi. I need a drink.

Welcome to Mass! I'm sure many of us would be delighted to show you around any bits you haven't already discovered in sojourns from CT.
Even with a move in store (looks like we're buying that house, barring disaster--I will soon be a resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and eligible for her healthcare system!)

Congratulations and welcome!

The health care system is doing well by me, at least, and one of the reasons I'm reluctant to leave any time soon.
