though we're lost here in the deep, we like angels never weep

1400 words today on "The Bone War." Which gets me to the primary conflict, and I should have another day or two of writing to finish a draft, if everything goes as planned. Then I can go back to the interrupted "And the Balance in Blood," which still needs a climax. Now that I'm not trying to cram it into a too-small space, I can even go back and put some more conflict at the beginning.

In other news, I'm engaged in making ghost chili vodka, which is largely the fault of ursulav and her spouse, and their habanero vodka. Right now, it looks like this:

And here's today's tea, which is Upton's Yamato sencha, in today's teacup, which is the Frankencup. (The cup and saucer don't actually match, but they're learning to cohabitate pretty well.)


You are mighty and that's some scary vodka you've got there. (Your tea is especially beautiful today.)

Time will tell if I ever open the jar...
Every now and again one of your lyric titles catches my eye, and I check it to see if I like the attached song. Apparently now is the right time in my life for Outgrabe. Thanks!
Black pepper, lots of it, in the vodka, and cayenne. Load it up and let it steep for a couple months. I'm told by a Russian lady of my acquaintance who lived through the siege of Leningrad and survived Stalin that it's the best cold remedy going. A slug of that is good for what ails you.
I think I'll stick with my experiments in quince vodka.
That is SUCH a pretty photo of tea!
Yes, the tea pic is awesome - the light, the colors, the swirly surface of the liquid.
