I'm not a coward. I've just never been tested.

Total Words: 3708
Pages: 15
Deadline: After most of the other things I'm supposed to be working on.
Reason for stopping: sleepy. two more scenes to write.

Stimulants:  applesauce
Exercise: none

Eagle's Path completes the set with a Worldwired review.

Mean Things: I made Matthew drink a Coors.
Tyop du jour: He winched in pain.
Darling du jour:  A couple dozen East Coast Magi stood around the lobby, chatting amongst themselves and snacking on crudités and canapés, because everything tastes better in French.
There's always one more quirk in the character: He actually drank that Coors. He's tougher than I thought.

Other writing-related work: Two chapters for truepenny
Books in progress: Martin Cruz Smith, Stallion Gate; Jane Austen, Pride & Prejudice;

Hmm. I should go to the gym tomorrow. Or at least for a bike ride, and the gym on Sunday. And other than that, I should do a whole buttload of work.


Carnival proofreader queries
"Sonny Liston Takes The Fall" readover
finish "The Rest of your Life in One Day"
get some work done on "Limerent" and maybe "War Stories."

I think I'm going to ignore Undertow until after ComiCon. I cannot face that ugly thing yet. Fortunately, I think it's just the last 100 pages that need me, as the rest is, well, about a fourth or fifth draft by now.


He winched in pain.

Coors makes me winch, too, right before I start reeling.
My work here is done.
I did see the post. I think we should talk about it here.

Hope that's okay.
Mean Things: I made Matthew drink a Coors.

OMG! That's the most inhumane thing you've ever done!!
Mean Things: I made Matthew drink a Coors.

Blowing up large portions of the world is one thing. Making your hero drink Coors? Cruel!

My husband is allergic to some key component of what makes beer beer. He can, however, drink Coors because it contains so little actual substance. Mind you, he doesn't bother, but I've always thought it sums up Coors.
You, ma'am, are cruel beyond belief. Maybe there's a reason there's no French word for Coors?
le coors
But does it taste any better?
