"…and not even Nate the Great can find my tea."

07 Feb

This is just a quick post, to let those of you in the world who read this blog know that 1) I am still alive and 2) I’m still deadline-racing. It’s getting tight. The writing goes well and most of the ideas I need are still there (and the ones I don’t need will come shortly.)

Some of the artwork and concept sketches coming in for this series are absolutely gorgeous. There’s nothing to boost the flagging energy of a tired writer like checking the e-mail and finding pictures of the people you’re writing about.

(I will talk to editor and artist alike and see if I can get permission to post some pictures here and there, for people to look at. It may have to wait until the project’s official announcement. We’ll see.)

I’ll be finished with this four-episode batch by February 15th. Then, I have a stand-alone short story that needs to be written and gotten out to an editor. After that, I’ll try to be a little more conscious and useful-like in this great, fuzzy, internet world.

    Wrote a thousand words…

    …erased a thousand words.

    Wrote a thousand words again…

    …stared at the computer for an hour.

    (don’t know why. I know the story, I know the next scene, I know how to write it. I’m just fizzling.)

    Gave up, shut off the computer, started to go to bed, got as far as the bedroom closet, shut the door and turned on the light, sprawled on the floor, opened a notebook, found my fountain pen, wrote steadily and without distraction for an hour, more productively than I’d managed on the computer, fell asleep ON my notebook, staggered to bed with my right leg completely numb, fought kitty for my regulation two square feet of space, fell back asleep.
