Pages: 162

Zokutou word meterZokutou word meter
40,500 / 110,000
Reason for stopping: I'm actually quite stupid and suffering post-novel ennui and two weeks of sort of spotty sleep, and it took me all day to get those seven pages.
Mammalian Assistance: none, though sandwichboy fed me.
Stimulants: mostly water, an Aero bar (viva Commonwealth chocolate) , and fistfulls of wintergreen Hoof Mints. Which are new, I think. Or newer than the cinnamon ones.
Exercise: lots of hiking around Toronto, though not so much today.
Mail: got a pretty nice review for Hammered in F&SF.
Today's words Word don't know:  n/a
Tyop du jour: n/a
Darling du jour: n/a
Books in progress, though at a snail's pace: Kristine Smith, Code of Conduct (yes, still.)
Interesting research tidbits of the day: n/a
Other writing-related work: none

Post-novel ennui for W&W may finally be hitting. Which is fine. Espcially since I won't get to write while I'm in San Diego, I suspect. Anne my editor Anne let me know that any time I could offer to volunteer at the Spectra booth would be welcomed, since the staffing is a little tight, so I'm going to mostly be booth bunnying, it looks like, between whatever panels and so on I'm supposed to be at or don't want to miss.

This is good, because it keeps me off the streets.

I may be a little inaccessible for most of the week, starting tomorrow--tomorrow, I fly back to Vegas, Wednesday we drive to San Diego (and I dunno what sort of access I'll have there, but I will hit an internet cafe, if nothing else), and then all weekend is Comicon and my booth bunnying extravaganza. I think we drive home Monday. So if you can't get ahold of me by email, don't panic.

And you know, if you're at Comicon, swing by the Del Rey/Spectra booth and come see me!
