So tired. Paying for the sleep deprivation of the last week+ now. Upped dose of stimulants and pouring caffeine as quickly into my system as possible, but I’m still stumbling into door frames and blinking dazedly at the computer screen—although my heart’s pattering double-time. Wheee. Praying that I can fumble through today without making some calamitous boo-boo.
dude_the flew down this weekend for our annual Superbowl watching tradition. My one football game a year, and it was a great one. We decided to root for the guys wearing yellow and black (although it was a toss-up, as I like red, too), and they won! Favorite moment: winning touchdown when the ball-catching guy sat and hugged the ball after he caught it. Awww…
And dude_the introduced us to this fabulous television series, How I Met Your Mother, which stars Alyson Hannigan and has cameos from other Buffy/Firefly alums: Alexis Denisof, Amy Acker, and Morena Baccarin. Enjoyed it greatly. Made it through 1.5 seasons in a two-day marathon session. Must see more.
• 1000 on The Stupid Novel. Actually managed to get some writing done during session. A sign of the apocalypse?
• 74-day SALE of “The Reign of the Wintergod” (reprint) to Pseudopod. Hurray!
• Note from J.K. Richard, the editor of the Animal Welfare anthology that “Running on Two Legs” will be appearing in, with a link to a list of the authors in that volume. I’ll be sharing a ToC with such excellent folks as Michael Jasper, Michael Merriam, Diane Payne, Mike Stone, Jennifer Brozek, and Jetse de Vries. Much coolness.
Congrats on the sale!
Congrats on the sale and the nice TOC!
Oh, I love How I Met Your Mother! There’s another great show that’s on just before it on Monday nights, The Big Bang Theory.
Some nice sales there, not to mention progress on the “stupid novel.” I felt the Earth tremble a bit as I read you accomplished the latter DURING session.
Get some rest and take care of yourself!
Great news on the reprint sale, but kudos go to you for working on the novel while you’re busy and tired. I’m finding it a fantastic feeling, working on my novel these past few weeks. Somehow it’s so much more satisfying, maybe because I was finally ready to do it?
The football game was fantastic! I hope you enjoyed your time with
. Say hi to him for me.
