Writing my little fingers off.

Jane and I have promised ourselves a pony once we get through with this push.

[An American proverb: There has to be a pony underneath all this stable-cleaning.] [Sanitized version.]

But progress is happening.

Thank you all. And Jane’s painting the kitchen.

Thank you all —all very useful discussion. I think it’s going to stay Convergence at least for now. I need something to think of as ‘the book’. I’m making good progress and that deadline looks almost do-able if I can keep my focus during Worldcon—if you see me staring blankly elsewhere, understand that I am […]

So what do you think about the title form change?

Be honest. Are people going to figure it out…granted I can keep my production schedule?

New book plotted…

Jane and I took a driving trip to Seattle…and we talked through the outline for the next book. Starting on it today.

Pluto: ice mountains. Water. NOT a featureless cue ball…


The book is in.

Just sent it to my agent. Just as I finished the file—the computer seized up.

Thank goodness WordPerfect creates a constant backup, and thank goodness Jane is cool-headed at moments I am freakin’ losing it!

We ran a comparewrite to be sure the changes I’d made got in.

I swear, no book ever […]

Today—we get a storm door.

And we’re having it installed. We tried to fix the old one, put in quite a bit of effort painting and fixing, and it gradually just sank out of true and now requires a lever to get it really seated so we can lock it. It’ll be ok for a while, then start deforming again […]

Well, after ice and Excedrin…

She does seem to be ok. We’re not so sure about the nail.

But where did I find her when I woke up this morning?

Out with a shovel, revising the area around the rockwork of the lotus pond waterfall-filter, having already pulled every weed in sight and trimmed down the heat-damaged hinoki cypress.

It’s […]

Jane tried to break her finger…

…worse, it’s her mousing/gaming finger.

That’s how she puts it.

Poor thing was shifting rocks in the rockwork edging, and a big one came down on the end of her right index finger. Really smushed it bloody. She made it into the house, asked for help, just about to pass out. Ice, a sit-down, and […]

Got the painting done—

They swear the humidity is only 34% at 78 degrees—but glug! I normally don’t sweat,–never have been able to sweat much, not since heat exhaustion (or was the cause of the heat exhaustion) way back at age 7 or 8—and several times since.

You know me—Ms. Can’t-Take-Heat-above-72-Degrees. 78 while crawling around to reach bits of […]
