The outline for The Servant Girl is finally coming together. This is a wonderful relief because I really, really didn't think I could come up with another full novel this late in the game.
I've been getting some work done on 2YNY2 as well, though not as much as I should. But still... I'm happy to find it moving as well.
I have a great deal of work done on the next Vision issue, though there are two big problems that I'm not sure how I'm going to cover... but we'll see.
I was going to go to the zoo tomorrow while Russ taught a class.. but it snowed today, and it's just going to be even colder tomorrow morning. I am sniffing now. My ear hurts. It just doesn't sound like a good plan. Russ says he'll get me to the zoo yet this month, and he does have one more class. I'm getting antsy. I'd really like to go tomorrow, but it is just not a good plan.
But other things...
I have two free downloads at my site now. One is a science fiction story called PSI and the other is a free book for people who are either doing NaNoWriMo this year or who might be interested in doing it. You can find them both on http://lazette.net .
I've been having strange thoughts about the huge accumulation of material that I have. I think quite a bit of it is going to end up as free downloads over the next few years -- but only because I have so much stuff. I'm still going to be sending a few choice pieces out to publishers, though, of course. But I figure something on my site every few months won't hurt.
We'll see how I do. I still haven't gotten to the edits of Touched by the Wild, though it will likely be one of the pieces. I just need more time.
Like that's going to happen.
I've been very busy the last few weeks, but now that the outline is falling together, I don't feel quite as much stress. I still have a horrible amount of work to get done on all kinds of things... but I'll get there.
And at some point I'll get to go to the zoo as well.
