Whiskey & Water
New Words: 2,994
Total Words: 139,361 / 155,250
Notecards eviscerated/added/remaining: 4 / 1 / 9
Pages: 621. Yep, I'm going to hit probably 660 on this. Which is actually tidily close to the same length as B&I.
Mammalian Assistance: Marlowe was naggy earlier, and Paladin was mopey. It's like The Other Seven Dwarves
Stimulants: Third pot of tea. You?
Mail: The nomailman finally finished with my Locus and handed it over. (Seals broken, as usual: you think I'm kidding!) and there's a v. nice blog review of Hammered over here by heatherkward. I'm not actually even certain the books quite that good, but I am certainly not going to complain. *g*
Today's words Word don't know: flensed, wistfulness, triskelion, dumbass
Tyop du jour: n/a
Darling du jour: n/a
Books in progress, but not at all quickly: Kristine Smith, Code of Conduct; Richard Overy, Russia's War: A History of the Soviet War Effort, 1941-1945
Interesting research tidbits of the day: n/a
Other writing-related work: n/a
An amusing bit of synchronicity:
Today's Word of the Day from AskOxford: branks (a/k/a a scold's bridle) which object of torture is a fairly major plot point in The Stratford Man, I think it's not too spoilery to say.
slithytove talks about the Lester Dent school of plotting
I really want to read the new John Crowley novel. Maybe in November. *g* Yeah.
