[personal|writing] Monday is not for wimps

As usual, I've been busy. Last night was OMSI Science Pub, this time with game designer Jane McGonigal giving her talk, "Reality Is Broken: Why Games Make Us Better and How They Can Change the World." I believe her TED talk covers much of the same territory. Fascinating stuff.

Otherwise it was a day of Day Jobbery, editing Sunspin, helping the_child make brownies and catching the male black widow spider we found in the kitchen cupboard while looking for the Crisco. Because life around Nuevo Rancho Lake is nothing if not exciting.

Today more of the same, hopefully with fewer black widow spiders, plus a girls' basketball game this afternoon.

Looking forward, once I wrap the current editing pass on this chunk of Sunspin, I'll be taking a few days off from the project to work on the newly-arrived Endurance copy edits, and possibly write one or two short stories. This is very unusual behavior for me on a novel project, but Sunspin is just too big to keep powering through, and other projects have due dates.

Any interesting insects in your life right now? Or copy edits?
