thoughts from the weekend

May 21, 2018

I didn’t get up in time to watch the royal wedding but I caught up online. Everything was just so pretty. You know what I kept thinking of? Gregor and Laisa from the Vorkosigan books. Not their appearance (which isn’t anything like in the books) but in the way Harry and Meghan act with each other, all happy and a little bit clingy, and the way Meghan’s been thrown into this very weird and public culture and is doing just great with it, and the feeling you get that they’d run away if they could but they’re too aware of the propriety of it all to actually do it. So that’s in my head now and it made me happy.

Remember the year of stalled projects? I took one of those 3/4 finished novels and decided to turn it into a novella.  Good news:  I think it was meant to be a novella all along. (Seriously, at the moment I’m very, very, very happy it didn’t see the light of day in its previous state. It was an unholy mess.) I’ve cut 20k words from it and am turning the whole thing into a tightly plotted streamlined machine. I’m happy. Here’s hoping I can get this one out in the world.

Deadpool 2 review on Wednesday.

Have a good week, peeps.
