An F-something overflight is rattling my windows.

Latest iteration, weirdly Erisian book meme:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don't search around and look for the "coolest" book you can find. Do what's actually next to you.


"Aren't you kind of old for a cyborg?" -- Hammered, *cough* me. Since I just happened to still have this copy on my desk. *g*

"Well, we certainly seem to have started in the right place," I stutter. --Shoeless Joe, W.P. Kinsella (second-closest book.)

Technically, the line-edited ms. of Worldwired was closer than either one, but since it's not actually a book yet, I decided it didn't count.

With massive hacksawing and major additions complete, Worldwired final draft stands at 444 pages/110,000 words: right on target, in other words. I think my butt's only left this chair for nine hours out of the last thirty-six. I really don't get enough sleep.

I'm just going through the edit letter again doing the fiddly stuff now.

"An old man sat inside it." From The Magic Tunnel, which barely HAS 123 pages, by Caroline Emerson. I love Half.com, which produced this in the mail for me today.
You still make me giggle, you realize.
Yay!
The Silent Gondoliers only has 110 pages.

The last sentence, "Because when someone special happens, he rubs off on everybody..."

The Silent Gondoliers, A Fable by S. Morgenstern

*g* One of my favorite writers.... *giggles*

and a lovely surrender it is. *g*
