I see now that the entire summer will consumed by this book. I wish that weren't the case. Low Red Moon and Murder of Angels consumed a summer each, but I was hoping that wouldn't be the case with this novel.
Oh, and I decided to compromise on all the neglected hair maintenance. Hair was cut yesterday, but not coloured. That'll happen today. This way, time will have been left free both days for writing.
After Doom 3, I tried Lucasarts' The Sith Lords for a few days, but found it just as tedious and unimaginative as I found Knights of the Old Republic to be. I can't see the point of playing a game wherein the program seizes control of my character whenever a combat situation arises. BioWare, who released the superb Jade Empire, is the creative force behind the game, of course, and there are a lot of similarities between the two, but TSL seems to fail in all the respects that JE excels. So, anyway, now I'm trying Rise of the Kasai, which has possibly the most beautiful animation I've seen in any videogame except, perhaps, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, but it's pretty much wasted on what seems, so far, to be a fairly silly, insubstantial game.
Unless you count the vignettes in Frog Toes and Tentacles, I've not written a new short story or novella since last August, when I finished "Bradbury Weather." Fuck...
