Head Down, Plugging Away

I feel like I've been hibernating and am only now poking my head up to see what's going on in the world.

Speaking of hibernating and such, it snowed here yesterday. I woke up this morning to a mountain covered with the stuff (at least, at 7,000 feet and higher). Where the heck is spring?!? I've actually got plans to start a vegetable garden this year. That's right, I'm going to try my hand at growing my own food. Watch out, stomach.

I've fallen into a rhythm with the day job. I get little writing done those evenings, but I usually get something down on paper, and that makes me happy. Then I make up for it on my days off.

While editing the novel for TNEO, I hit a part that made me go "blech." So I started rewriting from about the middle on. Which means I'm frantically trying to reach the end of this thing by the deadline. And now the first round of critiques is sitting on my desk. Already they're eyeballing me and whispering. You should be reading us. Stop procrastinating. Stop looking at me like that! Aargh, the voices!

I'm okay, really. I've got plenty of chocolate to see me through this.

Didn't realize you're making it to TNEO! Will be great to meet you, though you should be hanging with the short story crew. We are way, way cooler.

Cheers!

Looking forward to meeting you, too!

The short story group definitely has the cool kids. But the extended novel group bribed me with cookies.

Plus you'll get out for lunch way earlier. ;)

G'luck with the crits!

Dunno about the early lunch this year. There are 8 people in the group!

Thanks for the G'luck!

But remember last year, the extended group people said they weren't filling up the entire time allowance for a critique as often as not.

Still though. Eight people? Yikes!

Still sad I'm not making TNEO this year. *sniff*

...All things in moderation (repeat mantra until believable).

I prefer, drink till you don't give a damn any more.
