The final version, along with extra notes, was just sent off to El Presidente. I’m now going to let my brain simmer in its juices for a while.

The Estuary done

It should have been done a few days ago, but I’ve spent the majority of 2009 asleep–my head just wasn’t screwed on right and my concentration was shot to shit. Still, better late than never.

The major draft is done, now I’m just going through it again to check for consistency and various little points I wasn’t too sure about. The MS will be winging its way to Jacob in a few hours.

Then I can get back to revision for next week’s exams. Yippee.

Productivitivity (I can actually spell)

It’s snowing outside!

Usually I hate snow with a passion not quite fiery enough to make it go away, but this year I’m actually feeling pretty good about the snow. I think it helps that it pretty much forces me to stay indoors and work.

Have to read A Passage Through India, edit, finish that article for the Angler (life keeps getting in the way of that), and write an essay on symbolism in Poe. I’ve been awake since 7 this morning, and I’m almost done with the book. I’m hoping to get the article done in an hour or so, then finish the book, then carry on editing.

I also need to get a move on with NaNo. I haven’t written anything in over a week, and I think I’ve fallen behind. Still, I’ve got a week to write 15k, and I think I might be able to manage that. If not, well, it’s no big deal. I’ve still got half-a-novel, which is more than I had a month and a half ago.

New job

So, I’m working on a new editing project. The book is called ‘The Estuary’, which is amazing. Why, you ask? Here’s why:

I giggle every time I start work on the book. Most fun I’ve ever had on an editing gig.
