everybody knows the war is over. everybody knows the good guys lost.

Well, the wolfygothboybook is done, and has been sent off to hopefully beguile an editor. Further notes as developments warrant. Now the question is, do I goof off for the rest of the day, or start the soup and then stare at "Chatoyant" for a while?

Progress notes for 7 November 2006:

By the Mountain Bound

New Words:  748
Total Words: 81,644
Pages: 372
Deadline: --
Reason for stopping: Done!

Stimulants:  jasmine tea
Exercise: walked to the polls and back

Mammalian assistance: Mebd was clingy, but now has resumed her regularly scheduled sleeping on my bed and ignoring me

Today's words Word don't know: leaflorn, kinked, whatso'er, seithr, downturned, mundanities, recrossed, unwarded, withy, weregild, bastardy, directionless, ungood, wot, legless, Wyrm, bitted, blinkered, hoofbeats, unchanneled, stormfront, swordless, unwelcoming, retuned, unhewed, unlooked, enslavers

Mean Things: End of the wurld!
Jury-rigging: Actually put in some hints as to the actual, you know, plot of the book.

There's always one more quirk in the character: That bitch is crazy. Just saying.
Books read: I finished crowleycrow's book, which is wonderfully written, but I think I have some deep philosophical issues with it. In any case, I found it disturbing, and I need to think about it for a while.
The glamour!: I slept in until almost 8 am this morning. That was nice.


Go Mingan!
Directionless? Not a word? Even m-w.com, free version acknowledges it as a word.

Word's spellcheck sucks sometime.

It didn't recognize "scooch" for me, so I was question if that was a familiar term, or if it was one of those "personal family vocabulary " words.

Pointed in this direction courtesty of xterminal
You mean like "Scooch over and make room for your sister"? (Though I've always added a 't' - scootch. Not that Word recognizes that, either.) We used that in my family, so it's either Southern or mountain.
Yes, just like that. My parents both hail from New England, and I was raised in Maryland, so I guess we have the East Coast covered.
Just checked m-w.com ... apparently it's included in their pay version (which I don't have). They have it spelled "scooch". So I'm definitely using it. Besides, I think it's rather easy to decode through context.
Yay book! 'Specially wolfygothboybook. I am sighing already...
*g* Want a sneak preview?
Check your email. *g*
Lucky Chaz! I may have to go and visit him and do stealage...

And congrats to you. It makes me jealous that people are finishing books left, right and centre and I still have a ways to go on mine.
Don't announce the theft beforehand! *g* That defeats the purpose....
Darn it! Foiled again! And I've gotten away with if it wasn't for you darned writers!
rut ro, ramarcand....
Word has weregild. At least, when I tried to use my professor's spelling (Wergild) or my own bad habit (Weregeld) it autocorrected it, which implied it's in the dictionary.

Of course, different editions of Word/office at different times... it can't even be consistent about which words it doesn't know. :P
