DEMON HUNTS is revised and delivered unto my editor. The copped-out storyline is much improved and hopefully everything else that needed explaining has been explained satisfactorily. And now I have no more revisions to do until the next TRUTHSEEKER revision letter. However, lest you think that means I’m caught up, I say BAHAHAHA. O.O Next up is writing “Hot Time”, upon which I’ve done some 1800 words already and, er, I seriously doubt this is going to come in as short as 7500 words. I’m sort of hoping I can keep it to 10K. There’s probably only very little chance, if that, that I can finish it this week, but I’ll probably try, because it’d be nice to get the Walker Papers 6 proposal done by August 7.
I also seem to have picked up a Sekrit Project, which was not at all part of my plan. But it’s going to be flipping *awesome* when it comes together, and given that three of the four pieces are already in alignment, I see very little reason why it should not come together. :)
I’ve caught up on the major X-Men storylines now, and one of these days will maybe write something meaningful about them. Short form: taken together, X-Men HOUSE OF M, DECIMATION, DEADLY GENESIS, ENDANGERED SPECIES, and MESSIAH COMPLEX…make a pretty good story, actually. And wherever I inferred it from was correct: MANIFEST DESTINY is pretty much completely useless in terms of story-driving plot, but it does have Ardian’s Marve debut with the Nightcrawler one-shot in it, so it was worth buying. :)
A lady came today to take away our extra bed, so the enormous upstairs back bedroom is finally ready to have something done with it. This pleases me very much.
Somehow I walked over six miles today. No wonder I’m exhausted.
July Thinks To Do:
