Three quarters of a book! Three quarters of a book! Three quarters of a book!

Reason for stopping: taking a break to eat and rest my hands. 2K by 8:30 am: something to be said for insomnia.
Mammalian Assistance:  Mebd is rubbing her chin on the corner of the keyboard as I type this, and Marlowe made a couple of passes earlier and is sulking because I kicked him off the mousepad. And I already mentioned the dog dreams. Yes, Signy and Mithrandir are the good pets.
Stimulants: licorice spice tea
Exercise: Gothercise
Mail: a review of Scardown at "Blog, Jvstin Style."

I must know

What *is* Gothercise?

Re: I must know

exactly what it sounds like. *g*

Re: I must know

Yeeeeees, but is there like a site where I can learn to do it? :->

Re: I must know

It's strictly an emergent art form. We recommend putting on the loudest music you own, a supportive bra, and and going nuts in the living room. *g* Think of it as training for clubbing.

Besides, the less people who see my White Man's Overbite, the better. *g*
That review is really funny to me, because I loved your book and utterly loathed, with great loathing, the also-reviewed Ill Wind.

Yes, every reader is different. Sometimes *very* different.
Indeed they are. Sometimes astoundingly so.
i can't help wondering if someone's been collating all your "words that Word don't know" and trying to assemble clues to the story itself; much like people did with the many (oh, so many) Matrix Reloaded trailers.

I'd like to see it if they did. *g*
