Skunk transportation apprehension

This afternoon, fosteronfilm is having to take Hobkin to his godmom's (for skunksitting) while I'm at work. Hobkin is not a fan of car rides, and normally skunk transport is a two-human enterprise. Matthew drives, and I hold Hobkin, murmuring reassurances and providing comforting ear skritches. This time, Hobkin will have to be locked away in a carrier.

I'm envisioning a Tasmanian Devil mini-tornado a la Looney Tunes. I'm not sure who to feel sorrier for, husband or skunk!


Writing Stuff

The editor I was interviewing for my Writing for Young Readers column, Mark Justice of Story Station, got me his responses lightning-fast, in time to send the interview in before the deadline for my June column and therefore letting me bump the piece I was working on to July. Hurray! That's a great help in alleviating my May timetable crunch.

Y'know, I thought after the legislative session I'd have so much free time I could put my feet up and chill. So not happening. As fosteronfilm admonished me (with a touch of exasperation), I need to stop deluding myself that I'll ever have free time again.

Well, at least I'm not bored.

- Email from IGMS letting me know that the contract and check for "Beauty's Folly" (slated for their next issue) will be going out next week. Coolness.

New Words:
- 460 on the Fox Princess novel.

It should've been more, but I got sidetracked on a tangential research spree. I needed one snippet of detail, but that snippet snowballed into several hours of information gathering and fascinated reading. I'll undoubtedly use some of what I discovered later in the novel, but I really need to work on curtailing my inquisitiveness so it doesn't interfere with my productivity quite so much. Agh.
