Er. Yeah.

Yesterday, I worked through a very adequate 2,418 words on Chapter Three of Daughter of Hounds, rewriting the Scrabble scene from Emmie's POV instead of Sadie's. I think I like the end results; Spooky likes it a lot. It was a very weird undertaking, though, Doing a scene I'd done already, but from the head of a different character. All the same things happen. Many of the same things are said. But...well...it's weird, that's all. I am beginning to feel enthusiasm for this book again. It deserted me entirely a couple of months back. Hopefully, it'll stick around throughout the summer.

The evening was spent colouring frelling monster doodles while Spooky read aloud from To Kill a Mockingbird. I want those who won the colour monster doodles to know that, if they really are happy to have won these, they're lucky, because this whole undertaking is far more labour intensive than I'd suspected, and I shall not ever be doing this again. These 17 are the only 17 colour monster doodles which are likely ever to exist. I coloured the first 7 last night, and will try to finish them tonight or tomorrow night. The first batch will go into the mail today, along with the books. Thanks to everyone for being patient.

We have dinner with D&D friends tonight, Howard Hughes is stepping out a lot lately. It's the weather, mostly, which has, as I'd predicted, leap-frogged from late winter to early summer in the space of a week or so.

Thanks to Sissy, for getting the new ad banner for To Charles Fort, With Love up on the discussion phorum (you're all invited — nay, encouraged — to participate over there, by the way).

The Amazing $5 Silk Sale continues unabated at eBay. But we're down to the final 37 hours, so you'd best not drag your feet. This will likely be the very cheapest that you'll ever be getting a copy of Silk from me. Indeed, this sale might have been better christened the Joyous Luck of the Cheapskate than the Amazing $5 Silk Sale. And here I stand, while we're at it — well, here I sit, actually — with only a scant two weeks remaining until my (urp) birthday, that one to be numbered -1 (because -0.0 just seems a little silly). And there's this wishing thing over at...um, psssst...you know...um...Amazon.
