Writing. Painting. Kittens in boxes.

summer in the revisionland hotel

I have extensive notes from my agent (my agent, yay!) in hand and I am gearing up to spend the next several weeks in the Revisionland Hotel. A summer of tiki torch nights and umbrella drinks and writing writing writing. And it will be writing writing writing, because more than “change this, take out that” […]

post-revisionland

And revisions are done. Beta-ed, adjusted again, re-beta-ed & polished to a high shine. It is almost disgusting how much better it is than the last draft. Seriously. I’m not leaving the Revisionland Hotel because I have too many friends here and I like the bar. But I’m done. Done done done. Sending the New […]

unplugging again

I am sequestering myself in the Revisionland Hotel this week. I am very close to done with my additional, post-beta reader revisions. I am extremely pleased with all the changes so far, and what’s left is all sorts of thoughtful detail stuff. I’ve rebuilt the entire room and now I have to finalize the window […]

cake & kitten

Other than the fact that I am still coughing, after over a month of lingering chest cold, this weekend was lovely and springy. Not really knowing what to do with myself now that I am out of Revisionland for the moment, I thought I would bake muffins. But then I couldn’t find poppy seeds and […]

I’ve been here so long I started managing the place. I wish I was […]

unplugged productivity & a kitty in the sunshine

Things I accomplished in my week of little-to-no internets, an unnumbered list. Finished knitting the huge, boa-esque scarf that I have been working on for ages. Photos forthcoming. Of course, now that it is finished it is too warm outside to wear it. I have lousy knitting karma. Read Shaun Tan’s Tales From Outer Suburbia […]

on not writing

I have been trying to write all day and failing. First I was trying to write in the ever-ongoing Revisionland Scrivener Document of Doom, but I have been looking at the same gap between paragraphs that needs to be sewn together somehow periodically all day and nothing is coming to me. So then I said […]

several topics in one post

We went to closing night of Sleep No More on Sunday. I stayed away from the main plot this time, I think I only saw the Macbeths proper once or twice. I wandered through bits of Rebecca made more enchanting by having recently watched the Hitchcock film. Hecate was once again quite fond of my […]
