Ann and Jeff VanderMeer's Steampunk Reloaded arrived (with 'Machine Maid' in it, and a whole lot of other (more) interesting (to me) stuff. Also the audio book of Zombies vs Unicorns, and the Australian paperback edition from Allen & Unwin. It's enough to make a person think it's Christmas.
Writing: I've just about re-drafted the middle section of the selkies novel. It's gone from one long miserable chunk to three more varied chunks, two of them cheerful, one of them sad but stoic. That sounds better, doesn't it.
Momentous things: Our younger son Harry finished his HSC. He heads off to Schoolies' Week in Ballina tomorrow. If you see him, give him a big glass of water and a piece of fruit, and tell him to get some sleep.
I'm just about to head off to a 2-day Lit Board meeting, which will steal 2 writing days from me. But then, what are the weekends for? *wan smile*
Also, what does everyone want for Christmas? I would like a big-winning lottery ticket, please, just in case you're wondering.
