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

Progress notes for 14 July 2006:

"The Rest of your Life in a Day."

New Words:  1773
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
Mail:

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.

Specifically:

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.
