I remember this…

Back to Q&C today, scripting #32. Samnee has been a damn saint, waiting on me for as long as he has. The problem (one of the problems) with 52 was the stunning drain of energy the project caused. Literally like having someone stick a tap into the side of my creativity and open it to “floodgate.”

Draining.

So I’m re-reading 29-31, trying to remember all of the pieces I had in play, and I’m going over my notes, trying to remember just what it was I wanted to accomplish in this last issue of the arc. I always approach Queen & Country with a little trepidation; the subject matter, the characters, the “realistic” nature of the story, all of these things make me apprehensive, at least until I start the actual writing. Then the focus narrows, and it becomes about serving the story.

Working in the coffee room at Powell’s bookstore, today. Started working here when I was doing the copy edit of Patriot Acts, and I found the environment surprisingly comfortable. We’ll see if it continues to work well for me.

    …wait. You posted to your LiveJournal?

    The stars must be right.

    Ai! Ai!

    :)

    Nice to see you back.

    Yeah, well, don’t go all girly and giggly on me.

    Figured I’d try the experiment; not certain how far I’ll go with it. So far, I think you, me, and Gabi are the only ones who know the blog exists. Which is probably for the best.

    If you intend to use it as some kind of Ellis-esque “Peer inside the writer’s brain” touchstone with your fans, (which I’d recommend, incidentally), more visitors to your blog can be easily arranged.

    I’m just sayin’.

    That’s very cute.

    Let’s see if I can actually manage to maintain some level of posting before we open the doors.

    Sometimes, I just have to poke the bear.

    I can’t help myself.

    It’s a flaw. I can admit it.

    But seriously, folks…

    Let’s see if I can actually manage to maintain some level of posting before we open the doors.

    May want to switch over to “Friends Only” posting until you’re comfortable. Your public posts show up on, say, my friends list, which means anyone who checks out my flist (including Silver Bullet reviewers like Steve Saunders), may see it and point to it in their columns and whatnot.

    Your mileage may vary, of course.
