A quick thought I had in the middle of last night, which I figured was still worth sharing come the morning:
You know what’s horrible? Something giggling and crawling at you in the dark.
Why do we even have babies?
Things have been pretty ridiculous around here today, partially from the glee brought on by the visitation of some my favourite internet-famous people, Chris Pollette and Jonathon Strickland.
I have some pretty big plans that I’ll be unveiling tonight, in the hours post-“paying-the-bills”, but it’s mostly been a pretty pleasing day.
Update: It’s up!
Living in the country is weird.
I’m out walking the dog early on a Sunday evening and I pass my neighbour from down the road standing by his truck.
I throw him a wave, hoping he’ll see I have headphones on and won’t try to start up a conversation.
It’s then that I realize that he can’t wave back – he’s loitering behind his truck to conceal the fact that both of his hands are busy keeping his pants dry while he relieves himself.
I need another three or four hours of sleep, so this is going to be a pretty light day. I did want to be sure to once again publicly shame myself though, as it seems to be serving the useful purpose of keeping me on task.
- Lukas & Nan is currently 11% done. I realized I’d started my first scene too far into the plot, so I’ve been doing a lot of structural work and not throwing a lot of words on top that I may need to change down the line.
- My serial project has been further fleshed out. It’ll be a story in four parts, and it’s my intention to finish the first half before putting anything up. I feel like the format is solid and the story flows like water, so there’s really nothing to complain about here. I’ll get a word count together for next Friday, but there’s no real way to guesstimate how much is complete because of its more freewheeling nature.
- Lovely Alex has been doing sketches for the gag comic, but it’s a tough haul as we’re swimming in babies over here. Still, things are moving along slowly – we’ll see how the Gods Of Slumber feel over the course of the weekend.
