Texticalidocious

It's been a text-heavy day. Even for me.

I wrote 1700 words of a column in the morning, I interviewed Mr. Mieville with lemuriapress around noon (and have a new reading list), and have to say, it went well. For grins, I worked on the Savage Tide adventure all afternoon, maybe 2500 words worth. Since that one's aimed at 18th level characters, there's some biggish names in it, and I'm trying to convey the sheer weight of the forces involved in readaloud text.

Anyway, my brain is plumb wrung out, and I still feel guilty for neglecting my patrons this weekend. To recover, I think I'll go do some reading. :)

There's a lot of days where I don't get anything done, so I figure I might as well brag about the big days.

I do believe, my good Sir, that "some biggish names" is a bit of an understatement. I can't wait for your draft to come in, and I don't even work on that magazine! ;D

Yeah, I'm actually starting to worry a bit that the adventure could come across as "You wander the planes and meet all the famous characters". I mean, yeah, that's sort of the point, but the heroes still need to be the axis around which the adventure pivots.

So, um, trying to stick to the word count and still provide lotsa sensawunda. It's a challenge!

Pshaw, Sir. You're the Monkey King. If anyone can pull it off, you can!

(Of course, it's super easy for me to be confident—I'm not the one who has to write it or edit it.) ;D

Not online. Buy me a beer sometime and I may let them slip. :)

Thank you!

I'll try to find a bottle of rye and a proper attire by Sunday.
