Musings About Writing and Stories About Life
She's like the girl in the movie when the Spitfire falls
Like the girl in the picture that he couldn't afford
She's like the girl with the smile in the hospital ward
Like the girl in the novel in the wind on the moors

At least writing doesn't cause blisters
Words Written: more research
Writing Stats: Updated submission tracking. Exercise: stretching
Sale! Sophie story “Rhythm Like a Heartbeat” has sold to Best Women’s Erotica 2007!
New Guy Gavriel Kay novel due January 2007! I’m squealing with unabashed glee!
Plus there’s the Stardust movie…
And in even more good news, I braved the “sewing room” (the room of scarily piled boxes) and actually found my green tunic with the big embroidered gold spirals. I wanted it for Faerieworlds, but the hem had come undone and all of the mending from the old sewing room got shoved into random boxes… But I found it, took it to Morgana’s tonight, and it’s re-hemmed and ironed and ready to go. Whew.
I did chuckle as I was working, muttering “And what was the pact I made with myself again?” Although technically, the tunic doesn’t fall under that rule, which is that I will not work on garb the week before the event for which the garb is being made. If it isn’t done by a week before, I stop working on it—the stress isn’t worth it. However, a sub-rule is that “done” means “wearable”—trim, beadwork, finish-up handwork doesn’t count. That includes hemming.
I am violating the rule with the faerie crown, however, but if it doesn’t get done, it doesn’t get done. I’m going to work on it more tonight, and hopefully Albra can walk me through how to finish it tomorrow. If not, so be it. I’ll have it for next year, and faerie teas and whatnot. Or just to wear around the house, when inspiration strikes.
Either way, I have blisters for my troubles.
