I am starting to become more than a little disturbed at the realization that so many of the people I work with in publishing–editors, agents, etc.–are substantially younger than I am.

You damn kids get off my lawn! And you’ve got it damn easy. When I was your age, we had to walk two miles in the snow, uphill, just so we could get off someone’s lawn!

These things are important, y’know…

Having trouble finding the proper writing music for today’s endeavors.

Yes, this is a legitimate problem. :-P

Sorry about the downtime, people.  :oops: I think everything’s dealt with.

Tipping Point

No matter how psyched I am about a novel, no matter how easy the words are flowing to start with, there invariably comes a point–usually anywhere from 1/4 to, oh, let’s say 5/8ths of the way in–where it suddenly get a lot harder. I’ve done enough that I no longer have the “new cool” enthusiasm to keep me going, and it becomes a trudge to reach the end.

Guess what I just hit on the work in progress? Go on, guess. I’ll wait.

Guh. :-x

Yeah, I’ll work through it. I always do. But it’s always more fun when it’s, well, more fun.

The Wrong Idea

So, in the past two or three weeks, I have come up with a whole heaping mess of new ideas. Unfortunately, the majority of them are either

A) Tie-in story ideas for properties that I am not currently, and unlikely to ever be, working on; or

B) Book titles that are completely inappropriate for any of my existing ideas, and are not providing me with any story/plot ideas to go along with them.

This, Brain, is not helpful. You shall stop this immediately, or I’m putting you in the corner until you learn how to behave…

3,037 words today. Well, sort of. A few hundred of those were already written–occasionally I’ll jot down a scene that comes to mind before I get to it–but still, mostly new words.

And that brings me to…

52465 / 95000 words. 55% done!

And that’s the end of chapter nine. Seven more to go…

This has been a test of the Mouseferatu blog-cast system. Had this been an actual blog entry, it would have included something at least vaguely resembling content.

Was it really necessary for the new Daleks to come in color-coded candy shells? :-/

46218 / 95000 words. 49% done!

Well, halfway by chapters (finished eight of sixteen). A hair under halfway by word count, but even if I can’t make up a 1% shortfall over the next chapters, as long as it doesn’t increase by too much, I’ll be close enough to my target to be happy.

Just calculated my quarterly estimated taxes for the coming year. I’d ask you to shoot me, but I can’t afford to pay for the bullet.
