Speaking of ramping, now that the first book is out there, after two some years of editing, I'm dying to do some hardcore writing. I've started a first draft on another book and in January I'm planning on living, sleeping, eating, showering with my head in the book. I won't finish the first draft by any means in that month but I'm hoping to give it a kick so that I can finish the draft by early spring. Then I'm going to be drowning in editing again. It feels wonderful to have direction like this, to not have that strange floating sensation of searching for what I will do. I'm doing it. Hurrah.
Completely unrelatedly, have you ever noticed that succulents look alien? Seriously, I bet they are extra-terrestrials hiding out in the guise of plants.
See what I mean? Someone should write a Doctor Who with evil succulents.
Oh I have a bunch of Pins for you too. You know, geeky stuff, some holiday stuff, generally just a bit of fun.
