Jin Shei Cover from sgreer

Lots of little stuff

My tree is here, and my cats are quite affronted by it ("what is that big thing in the corner, and why did you think it necessary to put it there? Those are OUR quiklts and that's where WE sleep and play and what's the idea, eh?...") - it is still just a pretty little fir and no more but the finery gets put on tonight (and then pray that the cats don't decide to make war on it...)

A few new people friended me on the journal in the last week or so, so I've added all you new folks to my friends list and welcome to my parlour, as it were. I've visited a few of your journals and left traces of my passing, as it were. Look for stealth tracks.

Tomorrow I have to gird my loins and go yell at my bank for a bureaucratic snafu that's cost me &60 dollars in fines so far and I haven't DONE anything, it's their mess, so I'm in a fine battle rage about that. They better fix things fast, is all I can sey.

Back to the edits of "Last Ditch" next week, this time with the macro stuff, fixing a few pacing issues, adding some info that the editor wanted to see in there. I have a deadline of December 16, but I am hoping to have it all done by the end of next week and that would mean a bit of a break around Christmas that I could just kick back and relax for a couple of weeks before I start serious work on writing the second book in the YA trilogy early next year.

2005 was a pretty damn good year. 2006 is shaping to be another. I have a charmed life (knocking on wood, hard.)
