Good morning! Welcome to this writer’s workspace. Here’s what’s happening liiiiiiiiiiiiiive at Miranda’s desk:
What I’m working on: After receiving feedback from my writing group, I zeroed in on three major chunks of revisions to my novel “A Blood Red Sun.” I finally made it through the second chunk; the third is in my sights (which means the end of revisions is a glimmer on the horizon, too!).
Snippet from the screen: “Kara knew Itzil was coming. She could feel it in her gut, in the pucker of goose bumps on her skin. She heard footsteps in the hall. The heavy wooden bar grated as it was dragged back. Kara breathed deep and tasted the damp, moldly scent of the cell and the tang of harsh soap still clinging to her skin.”
On my iTunes: Actually, I’ve got Pandora up and running today. It’s great for listening to all those Christmas tunes you’d really rather not pay for 😉
In my mug: tongue-burninating Dunmore East Irish blend tea
Keeping me company: The Overseer is here on my desk, pestering me with his mournful eyes and sad little chirps: “please play with me!” Hard to resist the cuteness.
Out the window: Snow! We actually got a very pretty dusting of the fluffy white stuff last night 🙂
A little procrastination never hurt anyone: Here’s an interesting history of the elevator pitch over on Wired; your daily giggle from SlushPile Hell; and an interview with fellow VPXIII alum, Ferrett Steinmetz.
That’s all from here, folks! What are YOU up today?
