Poor brain =(

Good luck with your revisions, though. I agree. It's my least favourite part of the process.

I hope it would pass the Frog test.
There's a Frog test? Awesome. I like any test I don't personally have to take.

Personally, I prefer revising to drafting. I hate staring at blank pages and am a compulsive editor. This becomes a problem as I haven't yet got to a point where I felt I could, you know, actually stop revising, but yeah, at least I am having fun... kinda. ::)

I've already conquered the world. This is exactly the way I want it.

I have finally got off my butt and finished the next Rebirth chapter. I'm getting my momentum back, folks!

You're the one that always calls me on my crappy beginnings, after all.

You can tell how pathetic I am, that I wrote 7 chapters over the last three days . . .

Pathetic, LTU? Not in this crowd. Such behavior deserves applause.

*claps*

I don't have that kind of work ethic...

It's getting up early in the morning, and staying up until midnight+ every night.

That certainly does it. I haven't been nearly as productive, but I've at least produced...

This is true. I haven't been very productive today because, well, it's Christmas.

I haven't done anything over the last week.  I've been driving all over Texas and Oklahoma visiting family.  Seriously, I've had five mini-Christmases this year.  Needless to say, between Christmas and slackerdom, I haven't done anything lately.

This week I got a whole new idea about a civilization that develops magic when certain numbers in the calendar system meet up, a magical birthday if you will. Gonna be brainstorming further to make sure I'm not writing an homage to Piers Anthony's Xanth stuff, and trying to come up with a half decent idea that's not so cliche I puke in my mouth a little.

On the front of the "Part Time Angel" novel....nothing. I've been at a wall for about two weeks, not really caring to keep going. I think I need to start outlining my scenes more thoroughly before I write, just to make sure I've got a point A to B to keep me typing.
I like basketball, hanging out with my friends, reading, slamming a garbage can into a pimp or two with magical heavenly powers. You know, teenager stuff.

Draft 2 of Dalrymple, the King, and the Future is now complete and emailed to my unsuspecting close family, who I never told about it until now. Hopefully they'll have something useful to say. ;D

The next group I send this to will be editors. That's freaky. D:

Good luck!

Progress...  I got my RE inbox down to four unread emails?
