A much nicerer morning

I fixed my software problem. (Glaze, glaze.)

My BPAL Yule order has been shipped! (Jacobs Ladder, Midnight Mass, Sol Invictus, and Snow Flakes. Also, the Oct 2006 version of 13.)

There is nothing so terrifying in all the world as the trill a kitten makes the moment before it rushes at your face. And licks your nose.

I did get some writing done last night after all. A little story in the universe of the thingie I'm writing for NaNo. Giles and Ethan. By way of a character sketch. Hmm. Actually, since I'm not going to be using a bunch of material from the first draft of the bond thing (oh god, somebody please give me a title), I might post some of the more fun bits here. Any interest?

Oblique Strategies on t-shirts

Hmm. The Eno Shop just informed me that there are four t-shirts available now with Oblique Strategies on them:

• Be less critical more often
• Into the impossible
• Not building a wall but making a brick
• Always first steps

Which are pretty good general writing strategies, don't you think? I think I'll take the card with the "brick" strategy on it and put it up somewhere where I can see it for NaNo month. I don't need any more t-shirts. (Computer industry hazard: I could probably go for two months without laundering a single shirt, just coasting on freebie shirts from dead companies. Well, I could have until I collected them all to donate a couple of months ago.)

FRAGMENT: Giles arrives in Sunnydale

Disclaimer: I claim no ownership and am making no money.

This is a fragment from a version of the NLBS that turned out not to be part of the actual story. I have resisted the urge to smooth out my prose and de-clunk my expository moments. (Amazing what one can learn in the space of six months, isn't it?) Starts setting up ucky Council issues; introduces some Giles backstory, though not much.

Opening section; Giles arrives in Sunnydale.
