I was a good nixar and sat at the keyboard most of yesterday, hammering away at Secret Project B. That will be today, as well. Oh, I also wrote the prologue for Sirenia Digest #1 yesterday. I'm glad that I stressed the digest would go out on or about December 10th, because this month's going to be more about than on. Maybe Monday or Tuesday. Probably Tuesday at the latest. As soon as Vince is finished with the illustration for "Madonna Littoralis." So, like I said yesterday, there's still time to sign up and get Issue #1, which will include both "Madonna Littoralis" and "Untitled 13." Just click here.
Last night, we finished Gregory Maguire's Son of a Witch. In some ways, I think I liked it better than Wicked, but it's a very different sort of a novel, written in a somewhat different voice. It's been a long time since I've identified as strongly with a fictional character as I found myself identifying with Liir. That's neither here nor there as regards the quality of the novel, of course, but it took me a little by surprise. Anyway, I wasn't disappointed. I think Spooky and I are going to read Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone next. I just noticed that it's six minutes past noon (Caitlín Standard Time), so I need to wrap this up so that I can get my work done early enough that we can make the 4 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time) matinee of The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe.
As promised, I uploaded setsuled's pirate Nar'eth last night. Click here. I do so love this image, but it's kind of weird seeing pirate Nar'eth after dreaming pirate Nar'eth on October 28th and 29th. At any rate, in my distracted weariness, I uploaded it to my writerly website instead of to Nebari.net. I'll get around to moving it sometime this weekend. And speaking of caitlinrkiernan.com, I fear that it's woefully in need of a complete makeover, or at least a good thorough updating. I've already had a volunteer for a new web lemur. I just need to find the time to talk it all over with her.
Wanna see something cute? Spooky posted photos of Chiana Marshmallow Pipsqueak to her LJ yesterday. You will likely as not die of teh cute.
Okay. Gotta go. Have you checked out the latest eBay auctions? I've been told that my books make great Xmas presents, if you're into that sort of thing.
