Sometime in the future, I think I'd like to sit down and watch it properly. It seems I don't multitask writing and subtitles well. But I was on a roll, writing-wise. Didn't go to (that is, stagger to and flop into) bed until 6AM.
Payment from Here & Now for "My Friend is a Lesbian Zombie." Huzzah! Contrib. copy on the way. Although I do have a slightly reamed--"slightly reamed," is that an oxymoron?--feeling from the PayPal fees and their conversion rate between pounds sterling and U.S. dollars. Oh well. It's money.
Hmm, I still haven't gotten paid for "Li T'ien and the Demon Nian." I wonder if the Cricket Magazine Chicago move knocked my check into a crack somewhere . . . Query time?
800 on "Honor is a Game Mortals Play." I'm at zero draft. Woo! "The End" - two of the most satisfying words a writer can type.
The epilogue turned into a whole 'nuther scene and became the denouement. Um, oops. But it's done. Done done done! Considering that I finished it at 6AM this morning--the staying up all night 6AM, not the waking up at dawn 6AM--I suspect that a great deal of ruthless editing is in order. At least I hope so. I'd like to cull at least a couple hundred words. jimhines assured me there was wiggle room, but that's no excuse for sloppy writing. The plan is to do a few editing passes, foist it upon fosteronfilm to first reader, and then load it up to Critters to go up next week.
