dribs & drabs

Or possibly dirbs and drabs, as I typed first…

We had a nice day in to Dublin, though in the end we’re not sure either of us actually wanted WHO KILLED AMANDA PALMER (I thought Ted did, he thought I did), so I don’t know, maybe I’ll do a give-away of it or something at some point. Dropped by Sub City, where I picked up the last of the X-Men graphic novels that’ll get me more or less caught up to the current storyline. Read K.E. Mills‘ THE ACCIDENTAL SORCERER, which was quite enjoyable, on the train. More importantly, though, I latched onto Ted’s brain and extracted ideas for not only the sixth Walker Papers novel, but also “Hot Time in the Old Town Tonight”, which is starting to come together pretty nicely now. I may have to spend some time working this afternoon, in fact, to get the ideas written down so they don’t fall out of my head. And so I don’t spend time during the week writing those ideas down when I should be doing revisions.

Whilst in Dublin we saw an advert for tall ships in Belfast the 2nd weekend of August. That would be pretty cool to go up and see, and there’s a bus that goes through Longford up to Belfast. In theory, anyway. The Bus Eireann website will not, of course, load for me right now. *sigh*

There’s a knitting group starting up in Longford. It’s called Knitwits. On general principles I feel I should join, ’cause that makes me laugh. :) But it’s apparently going to be meeting from 2-4pm on Mondays, which is dead in the middle of Word Wars. *squinchy face*

Arright. I have to go run a couple of errands.

As soon as it stops raining.

miles to Minas Tirith: 480.5


  1. Glad I’m not the only one who raids my hubby’s brain for inspiration. He’s my best sounding board.

    1. Nope, you’re not alone! Someone once asked me what I’d be writing if I wasn’t married to Ted. I said, “*Different* stories.” :)

  2. curse your publisher! got through coyote dreams in about 32 hours to no sample chapter. good thing it’s on your site though. want the next one. faster please?

    1. *laughs* It’s not my publisher’s fault! WALKING DEAD will be out in September. Soon! :)

  3. *harrumph*

    I hate it when I do that.

    What I meant to say is that K.E. Mills’ WITCHES INCORPORATED is also excellent.
