Writeathon

Justina Robson

Just a quick entry to kick start a more regular blog schedule for the next few months. I am presently 'doing' the Clarion West writeathon in which I promised to finalise editing on the last QG book and get that chapter done for Keith Brooke, which is kinda overdue now but...sooo close to being finished.  I'm stuck on the reference checking because I totally hate it.  I can do one horrible job a day and it's been overlooked as I've been doing other horrible jobs in a slow, tortured manner, but it's up on the top of the list now, after the tax return which has only been on the list since April.  I used to be a PA and very sharp, did you know?  Sadly as my own PA I'm so fired.   Oh wait....

In a couple of days I will be over on the Borders (US) site doing Babel Clash with Mark Chadbourn, which should be fun.  We'll be discussing bringing magical things into contemporary settings for a kick off and then no doubt meandering into stranger territories.  Hope so anyway.

Today's Totals so Far:

Writing Done: this blog, creeping through edits of QG5 fighting Toxic Terror of Being Rubbish all the way...(some)

Research Done:  watched Dr Russell Ackoff video on Systems Thinking (kindly referred by Tricia Sullivan) link below

Playing Done: World of Warcraft, one dungeon, RP twenty minutes good fun

Dancing Done: about to do that!

Likelihood of achieving CWest Writeathon Target: fair

Ooh, what sort of dancing are you doing?

Not that I am asking for myself, being skilled only in the art of tripping over my own feet...

As for the Toxic Terror: I bash it with my rubber chicken! Take that, you scourge!

Ah, the Toxic Terror, how I know and detest it! I will go and get a rubber chicken immediately!

Good luck with the rest!
