elvish

busy day

Today I have...

...seen It Might be Loud, an excellent documentary featuring Jimmy Page, The Edge, and Jack White, with girasole.
...ordered new glasses. (Should have 'em in time for Dragon*Con.)
...got my train tickets for Dragon*Con.
...heard some news that might lead to more work for me, which would be a blessing.
...wrote more of Farscape: D'Argo's Quest #2 (and will dive back into once this post is finished).
...went to karate.

Oddly, I didn't feel like I did all that much today. *laughs* Which, honestly, is why I wrote it down. Makes it easier to realize that I have accomplished things.

d'argo's lament

progress....

Got Farscape: D'Argo's Quest #2 finished last night, in which we see Ka D'Argo say: "Just kill me now."

He also says, "I will kill you with my hands!" and my personal favorite:
You are going to agree to the Enforcers' terms. If you do not, the following things will happen: They will arrest and imprison me. They will not imprison you, because I will have ripped your head from your body and stepped on it several dozen times.

The plan for today is to work on the mystery. The do-an-hour-a-day-on-spec-work plan has failed rather spectacularly, and I need to get the sample chapters off to my agent. I've done one chapter, and need to do two, possibly three more.

So I'm going to take a few days off from Heart of the Dragon to work on that.
