Progress notes for February 20, 2007

"The Morning Gift"

New Words: 605
Total Words: 2,083
Pages: 7
Deadline: Submission period opens on March 23
Reason for stopping: Tired. Got most of the plot figured out, but I know already that I'm going to have to go back and flesh out a lot of backstory. Ugh.
Stimulants: Two cups of coffee with hazelnut creamer
Songs played loudly: "Bend and Not Break" by Dashboard Confessional, "Stuck in a Moment" by Mika
Mail: Couple rejections yesterday, got Farthing #5 today.
Darling du Jour: They all blur as one, he'd said one morning to her and the others. That's when he made Erlon One-Eye. And No-Nose. Halfears. He'd done worse things as well.
Other writing-related work: Jotting things down for a review of Justina Robson's Keeping It Real.
The Internet is full of Things: The Barenaked Ladies' latest video for "Sound of Your Voice" might have cost the band only $3.45 to make, but that's cause they're some smart Canadians. Check it out!
