While I'm still awake enough to post...

I should probably announce that the fourth and final back-to-school night was attended tonight, with a minimum of fuss and a cutting of 5th and 6th period. (One teacher was gone and the other class was PE.)

Go Mom.

I should also announce (because I REALLY REALLY WANT TO) that Roxie and Needletart have done a STELLAR job helping me with the editing of Rampant, and I got my box today! The box also had some books to read (SQUEEEE!!!) and some (happy dance happy dance funky chicken in the kitchen!) HAND DYED SOCK YARN from Bonnie in (hee hee hee hee... I'm still goofy over this, it's so wonderful!) Green, Bracken Gray, and Cory Sunshine Yellow. Now everybody close your ears, I'm going to make a knitter's squeal so high-pitched that only dogs can hear it and all of your florescent bulbs short out... ready? *SQUUUEUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE* Whew. It's still not all out though--I'll get the rest of it out when I take a picture tomorrow.

Anyway, I've got a TERRIBLE chapter to write for Deacon and Dek-- let's face it, any chapter called 'Broken Levees, Dead Horses, and Driving While Gay' isn't promising at all-- but after that, well... let's just say that for once, I will cheerfully PROMISE a happy ending, mostly just to get you through the emotional wringer that the rest of the book is turning out to be. But after I finish Deacon & Dek, then I'm going to do the final pass for RAMPANT, and then I'm going to write the 5th installment of Jack & Teague, and then the 6th installment of Jack & Teague, and then I'm going to start the next Cory book! *whew* Honestly, though, I hope my dragon takes a water break for a little while after Keeping Promise Rock--he's been riding me hard and putting me away wet, and between that and my insane schedule and, well, FOUR BACK TO SCHOOL NIGHTS, I'm sort of tuckered. And hopefully, somewhere in there, I can get Deacon and Dek to see some publishing daylight--because looking over Roxie and Bonnie's hard work, I can tell you that I think with some minor tweakage and some slime-sanitizing, I'm thinking you guys could really like Rampant.

It would be great if it could see daylight as well.

You are remembering to take time to eat and breathe, right? Remember, breathing is important to continued existence.

It sounds rather exhilarating for you right now. Ride that wave!

Too bad you can't send your dragon visiting. I know some people with blocks. On the other hand, they are proper, decent people, and your dragon would no doubt ravish them and leave them weeping in shame because they liked it.

Glad you likes the yarn. (That' why my ears were ringing yesterday.) I have loaded a batch of pictures from the summer and someday soon I will write what's going on and post (maybe that should be my New Year resolution? Just to post once mind you, not to go all weekly on you).
