Hee. I've become Tina Pratt! I hope we get a list sometime soon that legitimately looks like that one...


So I was totally going to get a ton of work done Wednesday, on my day off. Tons. The beginning was auspicious -- I woke up at 6:30 a.m., and by 8:00 I'd done about 2,000 words of freelance writing, finishing everything I had to get done that day. Only the novel loomed before me. So naturally, instead of revising Poison Sleep, I did laundry, washed dishes, mopped the bathroom, etc. etc. etc. I was finally prepared to get some work done in the afternoon... when the mail came. Bringing the latest trade collection of Fables, and both God of War and God of War 2 for the PS2. So instead I spent all afternoon reading comics and killing hydra and ripping the wings off harpies. Call it, um, seeking inspiration.

But, despite that lost afternoon, I've made good progress on revisions. I'm about 30 pages from the end, and should finish marking up my manuscript today, what with lunch break time and some work this evening. Thanks to everyone who gave me critiques on Poison Sleep -- it's going to be a better book thanks to your guidance. And I'll meet my self-imposed deadline of getting revisions done by the end of March... mostly, anyway. I imagine I'll do the actual typing-of-corrections on Sunday, since Heather will be out of the house doing a thing and I'll be bored.

Next up, in April: revising The Light of a Better World.


Last night I accompanied Heather to the premiere of In Search of the Wild Kingdom a "pomo-homo-docu-mockumentary" directed by queer porn filmmaker Shine Louise Houston. (Heather's company produces Shine's movies.) It was a funny, hot movie, and the audience was huge, featuring a representative cross-section of San Francisco sex-positive hipsters. Plus, the cast and crew and staff (and hangers-on like me) got free sushi beforehand, so life was good.

I can't decide whether or not it's a cruel irony that all the pornstars I meet are lesbians...
