Flotsam

And now, ramblings.

I'm reading George Martin's A Feast for Crows, which I'm greatly enjoying--except for one thing. Because Martin's original manuscript for this book clocked in at something like a million pages, instead of publishing AFFC Part I and AFFC Part II, he instead tells the full story of half the characters in AFFC, and in his next book, To Dance With Dragons, he'll tell the full story of the other half of the characters. The events in the two novels take place simultaneously. So, three-fourths of the way through AFFC, I already know that certain characters are doing to die in the next book. Meh. I think he should have done the Part I and II thing. But points for trying something new.

Battlestar Galactica will return on January 6. WOOT!!!

Nip/Tuck season finale is tonight! The Carver will be revealed! Yowza!!!

HB2 is s-l-o-w-l-y progressing. Up to ((cough)) 2,000 words. Scrapped approximately 500 words. But...the story is moving.

Just found out that Jim Butcher's fun Harry Dresden series (about a Chicago-based wizard who is also a private eye) is going to be a movie. Fun! I like Jim's style and wit. ((Note to self: Beg Jim for a blurb.))

I still have Channukah and Christmas presents to wrap and cards to send. ARGH.

And Backspace is still down. *sigh*

Off to bed, off to bed...

Well, 2K words is still progress, yanno? Keep plugging away.

hurt! betrayed! offended!

That's how I feel to see (rather backwards) that you sold a novel and I was not informed earlier!

(and no, because you posted it in your blog, which I should faithfully check every day, does *not* count as "informing me" because...well...I don't care whose fault it is that I don't check it every day, I blame the charity program for making me too busy to check it! BAH!)

But! I offer wishes for happy hannakuh (yea, yea, yea, it's the third night already...see above paranthetical rant!) and am completely stoked about the novel sale! Let me know when it's coming out so that I may rush out, purchase and then send a copy to you for the autograph thingie. That way I can go around going "see, I *told* you I knew here!" to all my jealous friends!

Thanks, Faith!

And Rabe...DUDE, you didn't get my email? Wah!!! Thanks so much for the Chanukah wishes! To make up for the non-receipt of email, I'll send you an autographed copy of HB. :-*
