chancewrites pointed out to me yesterday that "This Tragic Glass" picked up a Nebula recommendation. It's my very first one. I'm kind of geeked about the whole thing.

Which reminds me, gotta vote for the Hugos this weekend.

In other news, I got nothing productive done yesterday, between the movie and the trip to the optometrist (half a step worse in both eyes; I'm still hovering between "bat" and "star-nosed mole.") but I did get six pages over the course of WisCon and three on Wednesday, so progress is being made. This is one of those books that's being insistent about being written in the headlights, so to speak. I know where it's going, but I can't really see my way there, and I'm slightly concerned about the level of physical conflict.There's conflict, mind you. It's just internal and intellectual and political rather than the fighty-bitey sort.

Tortoise, tortoise. And more today, before the mass excursion to Harry Potter, which I do not really expect to enjoy, but I'm open to being surprised.

Once I get home from work, it's words words words words words.

Sweet! Mazel tov!
Ooo! Nebula recommendation! [Represses urge to use astronomical superlatives.]
Brava! Yea! Clapclapclapclap
Fantastic news about the Nebula nomination. I'm impressed. :)
Oh, it's not a nomination. Just a rec. Nine more like it get me on the preliminary ballot.

Here's the rulez:

Woo! Nine more would be awesome, but one is very awesome all by itself. :)

*throws confetti*
[heh] I was wondering when you would notice. I thought it would take a lot longer.

If you've received your sff.net password, for the private sfwa boards, you can read recs here:

Ooo, good tip. I've been trying to stay away from both sff.net and the rumormill until I have my damned draft done, but the grapevine around the OWW is pretty good, and a lot of us are sff.net members. *g*

I'm *really* glad you liked the story, by the way. I seem to be batting about 50% so far, which I think is pretty darned good for something so subtexty.
I have a terrible weakness for "rescue" stories. Also, I liked the characters a lot.
The nice thing about Nebula nominations is that even if you don't make any ballot, you get to see who likes your stuff. Well, or who wants to toad-eat you, but since when I was in SFWA that wouldn't have been worth anybody's time in my case, I was able to feel a quite pure pleasure in the process.
