Why am I non-posty? Because I am between. I'm on hold regarding a lot of things regarding my world, and this translates to me thinking "I will wait to post until X". But I don't know when X will be. And time skitters on. So.

Off the top of my head, I can count three huge, major, life-shifting things that I cannot yet discuss, that I am waiting for. Some of these things are things I can do nothing to hasten. We wait for the universe's gears to click into place. One, I'll know next week when I might be able to begin to talk about it. So that'll be good, at least. :)

Two of these things will be AMAZING. One is complex and I don't know how it'll be. We shall see.

I figure I can get back into the habit of posting by doing my Friday Memeage, even though today's Monday.

Wearing: Mostly-purples argyle sweater, jeans, fuchsia knee socks with yarn balls on them, Supergirl underpants.
Reading: Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch and Writing on the Wall: Social Media — The First 2,000 Years by Tom Standage.
Writing: That's complicated.
Knitting: I went to start the sleeves on a baby cardigan and did a thing and now the cardigan is sitting in the corner to think about what it's done. Also I have four more inches to add to the Still Light Tunic and then I have to do sleeves for that and sleeves, man. Sleeves.
Planning: Copyediting two manuscripts this week; BARCC meeting tonight, maybe a reading/signing tomorrow. There's a thing I'd like to go to at Oberon on Wednesday, but I have not been proactive about seeing who else would like to go!

From what I've been hearing, the Oberon event is going to be very fantastic! :) Sad that I am going to have to miss it, but I'm trying to come down from NH for the metal burlesque show in mid-November.

Fie - I'll be out of town for that!

There's got to be a way one can do sleeves simultaneously, so you know they are the same length, and so they are DONE at the same time.

I've been hearing many things about this book. How is it? Worth picking up?
