If you're gonna play the game, boy, you gotta learn to play it right.

I probably owe the internets an apology for extreme crankiness already. Unfortunately, there are no signs of it abating any time soon. *bites bars of cage*

Slightly delayed progress notes for 25 October 2006, because it took all damned night to get anything done at all:


New Words:  933
Total Words: 4,091
Pages: 20
Deadline: Dec 31. (This is deceptive, as I have to have a proposal done Nov 15, and a novella by the end of the year as well.)
Reason for stopping: tired, bitchy, and out of ideas

Stimulants:  cooooooooffee. Also some tea.
Exercise: Gym with ashacat, 20 minutes of juggling.
Songs mutilated: The Gambler, Leavin' On A Jet Plane. says that 40 minutes of seated gittar playing burns 52 calories. I am Amused.
Mammalian assistance: Mebd trying to shove the laptop off my lap.
Mail: I confused purpleprimate slightly, but sie doesn't seem to mind too much.

Today's words Word don't know: unconfessable, suitjacket, moggy
Words I'm surprised Word do know: bloodsucking. Did I teach it that one? I don't think so. Vampires of Redmond!

Mean Things: Ungrateful children.
Tyop du Jour: I am devoid of good tyops these days. So sad.
Darling du jour: I am darlingless.
Jury-rigging: But I have a plot. I just have to figure out how to get my viewpoint character to find it.

There's always one more quirk in the character: Epaphras smokes, as previously mentioned. ("Do you smoke after sex?" "I don't know. I never looked.")
Other writing-related work: none
Books in progress: Cory Doctorow, Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town
The Internet is full of Things: I did this already today.
