45,853 words and bowling for cats

  • BOOK UPDATE: Thanks to schedule weirdness and recent fascination with my Welsh-language blog, I have not written nearly as much as I would have liked to this week. On Thursday I woke up at 3:30 a.m. in a fit of panic, part of which centered around fears that I would somehow let myself burn out on this novel when it's so close to being finished -- not because I really feel that I am losing momentum, but because that would fit with my track record.
    But as I say, I don't actually feel that's happening. And I have scheduled to take another week off in December to focus on the book. Hopefully by that point I'll be fully into the editing process.

  • I'm kind of crap at this game. My highest score so far has been 80.

  • This little incident isn't going to help diplomatic relations between the U.S. and the MAN.

  • I'd say our relations with hermits aren't doing too great, either.

  • It's like Dr. Phil but not really.

  • Gee, with such a sane girlfriend, it's really a surprise to me that Hendrickson shot himself.

  • "The student was rushed to the hospital after he began dry heaving and urinating on himself" -- Yeah, I remember those days. Good times.
