Calamity of So Long a Life is teetering on the edge of being done. I'm reading it one last time for another line edit pass, and to get the story firmly in my head so I can start in on Sunspin volume two, Their Currents Turn Awry, sometime in the next few days.

Yesterday I got up early and walked an hour, leaving myself enough time to blog, perform my morning ablutions, eat, and work on the book for an hour before Day Jobbery.

Then at lunch I scampered back to my hotel room and worked on the book for an hour.

Then after work I scampered back to my hotel room and worked on the book for three and a half hours more.

Obsessive? Moi?

Plus the lovely and talented [info]lizzyshannon is doing an independent line read to catch all the stuff my eyes keep passing over.

So, arm, not so much with the blogging today because there was so much book yesterday. Not much book today, either, as I have a lunch meeting, the Omaha Beach Party tonight, and a need to go to bed early in order to get up for my 6 am flight home tomorrow. Still, I am almost done. Whee!

Heh, an author being obsessive/compulsive about their work. What are the odds? I'm reminded of feorag's description of what it's like to live with a writer. Unfortunately, I can't track down thta post of hers.
