Annoy An Arctic Bird

This week at work...
The bindery is moving in with the print shop. I expect un-funny hijinks.

Lots of stuff, but picked up Greg Keyes, The Charnel Prince. Don't understand the allure of overrated Jordan and Goodkind. Keyes can weave a superior yarn: fast-paced, his stories actually get somewhere.

A few thousand over the past five days. Wrote crucial fight scene over the weekend--1800 words.

Went innactive with Critters. I'm trying to finish two manuscripts by year's end and just don't have the time. Frankly, I've been "phoning in" critiques, annoying since I take pride in detailed, well-thought out critiques. Writing them in MSWord so I can get a word count. "Am I at 200 words yet?" It been more like writing a book report in school. "This was a very, very, very, uh...very, very, very interesting story." Check word count. "But I think it needs lots, and lots, and lots, and lots of work" Check word count.
