on Bridge, and end of scene. Rewriting, this time, is slower than new writing. But I am in no hurry.

I've kind of got this story And it's set in this shape. And I'm bending it into a new shape while trying not to break it.

It's fiddly work, and I accept the fiddliness of it all.

I need to figger out how to get Carel's choice up front so the reader understands it, and understands why she makes it and makes it so suddenly. And it's an important choice--a choice that drives the book--and she's not a POV character. Hmm. It's not an Elaine scene. So it either has to be a Matthew or a Keith scene.

In good news, four Russian werewolves named and accounted for.

'Didn't hold' from GVG today. M'ris has me beat--she had a nine-rejection day. A moment of silence for M'ris, please.


Gwah. I was licking the floor on a three-rejection day.

Many condolences and support like things for M'ris.
Thankee. It was the post orifice's fault -- much of this was from late October and early November. I was a little punch-drunk for awhile, and now I'm just beligerent. ("Anyone else wanna pieca this?" It is possible I'll get another one or more on e-mail tonight. The night is young.) And I'm possibly crazy enough to try to finish a short-short so that I can have a tenth thing to send out in tomorrow's bunch. I believe this is known as "masochism."
You know the Connie Willis story, right? The one where every story she had in the world was rejected on the same day?

And she almost quit then and there, but she already had the next set of envelopes addressed and stamped?

Go Connie.

Go you.
Actually, I thought of that story the day a bird shat on my head.

No birds today (it barely cracked 0 F here). So, hey, that's something.

And I did just finish the short-short.

Oborotni. Cool. Now why don't I have a fanged smiley?
