Hangin' in. Successfully got through yesterday without requiring a nap. Alas, will also have to get through today and tomorrow napless, which leaves me nervous about getting the writing time I need Thursday and Friday.
Work in Progress
I'm taking a stab at the third haunted-Vegas story. I do not think it's ready to be stabbed at yet. It's hard to be emotionally honest about this character and have him remain sympathetic.
Anyway I need to be working on a story due Friday. Which is not this story. Meep.
And then the stuff I want to read at Wiscon.
is keeping me very busy this week, but in the good way. The getting-things-accomplished way, not that AAAAGH MAKE THE PHONE STOP RINGING way. This is the first volunteer training I'm doing from the ground up, and tomorrow's my first information-and-interview session, and I am excited because yay shiny new people into social justice! Also there are some innovations in the CAPS program that I'm excited about.
Finished the baby blanket for the co-worker; now I'm a bit over halfway done with fortunavirilis's wrap and just begun on saraphina_marie's blanket.
After that, I start knitting stuff for Blogathon! One item for each of the three central characters in Cicatrix. I'm thinking a shawl for Ash, a scarf for Kai - and I already have their colors picked out - but for Aaron, I keep poking at making falls instead of knitting something. With charms woven in, just like his hair. So.... spinning art yarn. New skillset. Aii. Hello. Maybe I could collect some art yarns from people who already spin it, and charms, et cetera...
I am falling out of my full flail. A few good nights of sleep in a row has helped tremendously.
