Call It a Day


  • Woke up to my wife's excellent pancakes. She makes a mean pancake.

  • Wrote 3,500 words, and got around the corner on some issues of pacing and setting. Mostly, got the right attitude for two key characters. The designer behind the defenstrating sphere made me laugh and laugh. Sadly, the designers in the Spell Compendium are not credited directly, just by title.

  • Watched the Rose Bowl get rained on. The local Mercer Island band seemed at home in the rain. The Californians, a little less so.

  • Walked the dog. Twice.

  • Wrote a second draft for a Paizo article and sent it off. It felt fully baked.

  • Dialed in to check email for the day job. Yes, I have the day off, but this makes my life easier when I go back tomorrow.

  • Drank my favorite beer, a hoppy Redhook IPA.

  • Fine-tuned the new LCD monitor. It rotates to portrait mode, which is pretty sweet for working with long documents like, say, stories or game designs. The old monitor is being retired: If you want an 18" ViewSonic CRT, it's free for the asking. Would make a good dual-head monitor, for example, or a monitor for a media server or the like.

I'd like to take that monitor, if you don't mind. I'm using the same monitor I bought in 1994. It works, but it's limited in its resolution and I can't edit video on it.

If that's okay.

It is all yours! I was already hating the thought of having to put it down at the recycling center. :(

The monitor resides in Bellevue at the moment. Please shoot me email via my LJ address and you'll have it soon.

But did you have authentic Canadian maple syrup with your pancakes?

I have been reading your writing progress with delight. I haven't said it, but wanted to now: You kick ass!
