I said I was going to write a Saturday blog post, and by golly, I'm going to write a Saturday blog post. Even if it is short and a bit incoherent, because I'm really tired after a day of painting. So, for Sampler Saturday, here follow my thoughts, writing-related and otherwise:
My mother is awesome. She may not have done any of the painting, but she did all the dishes from the entire day and helped tear up some of the crazy weeds which are currently the only inhabitants of our garden. Thank you Mom!
If everyone who has liked my Facebook page bought a copy of Killdeer when it comes out, the repairs I just scheduled for the roof would be completely paid for.
After I write one more chapter of the Dangerverse, I will be entering into a part of the story I have been planning for literally seven years. This is frightening and exciting at the same time.
Sesame allowed my dad to pet her today. This is a milestone for her as the first time they met, she put claw marks in my shoulder trying to climb over it and get away. It was either the beard or the glasses...
Why don't authors consider research into their own written canon as necessary as any other type of research? If they did, internal consistency errors, like the amazing renamed character or the time differences within the same paragraph, would probably drop to almost nothing. (Almost, because authors are people too. AAPT, perhaps?)
Our walls are blue and green now, and what used to be ugly gouges now just look like plaster texturing. It's pretty.
And with that particularly silly bit of news, I shall leave you for the night. More on the upcoming parts of the DV tomorrow, and thanks to everyone who has already reviewed! I'll try and get you the next chapter a bit more expeditiously than three weeks...
