i will arise now and go about the city

I have finished the draft of "No Place to Dream, but a Place to Die." It needs the thematic and character arc shored up a bunch on the revision, but the plot is there, and that's all I care about right now. More to follow.

But first, I have my edit letter for Karen Memory, and starting tomorrow that needs to be happening. Wow, it's such a damned nice feeling to get things off my desk.

Often, working on a novel feels like spinning your wheels for months and months and months--because there's work, endless work, and it's all on the same thing, and it never feels like you will get to get your brain back and do something new. But the end is in sight, here.

And not to bury the lede, but! Shattered Pillars is longlisted for the David Gemmell Legend Award! (So is a book by that boy I like, ahem.) And EVERYBODY ON THE INTERNET CAN VOTE ONCE.



Yay draft!
Yay edit letter!
Yay longlist!
Also-yay for That Boy You Like!

(Small wince, though, when I read your bio on Shattered Pillars' details page, which is sadly outdated.)
Actually, I have not lived in Hartford since 1971, and it was for less than a week, and at that time i did not have a cat. If I cared about outdated or incorrect information on the internet, I would never get any work done.
Good show and well done all around. I'll drink an almond milk+ Amaretto toast to that, with home baked amaretto from my private stock.
