Sometimes I think it's a shame when I get feeling better when I'm feeling no pain.

Progress notes for 3 October 2005:


New Words: 1,265
Total Words: 4,329
Pages: 19. It's gonna be a novella. Does the world *really* need another 20K pseudo-Victorian vampire story about the ethics of seduction? Ah well, every writer needs a couple of Lost Early Works to be discovered, dusted off, and published after our deaths. And writing it will at least get it out of my head.

And I have to say, it's flowing well. And I'm enjoying writing it. The pressure's pretty much off, I guess, and this one's just for fun.

I mean, who's going to buy 17K of Victorian vampire story?

Reason for stopping: housework
Mammalian Assistance:  none
Stimulants: ginger liquorice tea, johnnycake with tomato jam, and miso
Exercise: none
Mail: none
Today's words Word don't know: chaperonage
Words I'm surprised Word do know: n/a
Tyop du jour: releaf (look at me womanfully avoiding the R-O-L-A-I-D-S jokes)
Darling du jour: He wondered when the pocket handkerchief would emerge, or if she'd skip directly on to the fainting spell.
Books in progress, but not at all quickly: Ladislas Farago, The Game of the Foxes; The Adams-Jefferson Letters;
Mean things: The character I inflicted upon poor Sebastien today is the most terrifyingly self-absorbed middle-class monster you ever did see.
Other writing-related work: Two stories submitted.
Interesting tidbits: Of course, having cleared a pile of semicompleted short stories off my desk and being at work on the third, with three more to go, I said yes to another short story request today. Which means I now have three to write for various Sekrit Projekts, and "Lucifugous" and "Paddareen" to finish for my own satisfaction of not having the dratted things malingering half-completed on my hard drive.
Busy is good, though.

I can't tell you who'd buy it, but I'd read it. :-)
Clearly, someone needs to do Yet Another Vampire Short Fiction Anthology. It'll be time for another one soon.
For a minute, there, I thought your icon said "deadliness" and I thought to myself, "Yep, that pretty much describes Animal." (I had a bit of an Animal phobia as a child.)
Isn't vistorianlondon.org fun!

Sigh, I'm having a devil of a time with my own 19th century novel. The digust and self-doubt are starting way too early.

Quite a few places, I'd reckon, once they see your name attached ;)
Ah, if only. *g* You've got me confused with that Gaiman guy.
Whoops, sorry Neil -- next time I won't get you mixed up with that Bear girl; she's just too damn find for her own good :p

*stabs you for putting Gordon Lightfoot in my head*

I think I speak for all us pseudo-Victorian vampire story fans when I say:


Seconded. :-)
Icon love!
Let me know if you find a market. I've got the prologue for Fallen as a stand-alone and I'd love to sell it somewhere before/as well as sell the book.

Very very much.

Lightfoot and johnnycake?

I love how his voice twangs on that song. I have a special squee for it because he inserts odd numbers of bars, and it goes down smooth.

I had to put the song on while posting, but I got the cover off Beautiful by accident. Nah, tonight has to be the real thing :)

Re: LJ-sponsored regression

Ahhh. Mr Lightfoot. We love you so.

Re: LJ-sponsored regression

We do, indeed. Even if his two recent albums have been ... pallid.
