there are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio--

I should probably practice guitar, but it's late, so I think I shall do it tomorrow. Tomorrow is also when I need to start on my new to-do list. I shall take the rest of tonight to finish crowleycrow's Lord Byron's Novel: The Evening Land. That will be a pleasant use of time. Also, I will enter my loot into Librarything.

On the plane flights, I read several books. The love-song-to-NYC YA fairy tale meta-romp, Changeling, by Delia Sherman; the charmingly snarky Aleister Crowley, the Beast Demystified (different Crowley than crowleycrow), which was not in-depth but amusing, and Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town, which I liked a good deal, although I thought it bogged down in polemicizing occasionally, and the ending was a bit weak.

What I'm doing between now and the middle of 2008, the current list, in order:

Finish By the Mountain Bound (tomorrow)
Finish "Chatoyant" (next week)

Write "Lumiere" (ASAP)
Dust proposal (by the second week in January)
Proposal for a sequel to A Companion to Wolves (with truepenny)
Revise All the Windwracked Stars
Write the nameless space opera novella (April)
Write Dust
Revise Ink & Pen and Hell & Earth, if that is what they wind up being called.
Figure out what I'm writing after Dust and write a proposal for it
Revise The Sea thy Mistress
write novella for Chris
(misc. galleys and CEMS, on an as-needed basis)

...yanno, they say artists have no job security.

Hmm. I think it's actually sinking in that this is what I do for a living, and I'm kind of not too bad at it.
