Blogging in arrears

I missed my usual Friday night post. The beta reads for The Enhanced League are pouring in, and I kind of want to jump right into my modifications. Experience has taught me not to do this, but the heart wants what the heart wants. It's better to get them all and look for the similar comments and address those first.

To distract myself, I turned my efforts to Lisa Burton Radio. I had several in various stages, because of my trip to Kentucky and all the catching up from being gone. I'm happy to be all caught up on that front, and Lisa's Thursday show is all scheduled.

Sean Harrington delivered the last poster for The Enhanced League, and they all look fabulous. I'm sure Lisa and I will need to have a discussion about proper baseball footwear, but I already know what she's going to say. Robot girl legs are probably more resilient than human legs.

Speaking of Sean, I sent him a fresh new inquiry about The Yak Guy Project. I haven't even started editing, and it needs some time to ferment, but it pays to plan ahead.

We're going to Guardians of the Galaxy II tonight, and I'm pretty stoked about it. My next project will be a paranormal adventure, but it's going to have a lot of fun/cranky banter. GoG has some of that going for it, so if I call it research, are my movie tickets tax deductible? Maybe I ought to dig up my last tickets to Ghost in the Shell, since it will help with my Grinders novel that I'll start in 2018.

Memory lane moment. This is what I did to my name tag at a conference last year:

It gave me a nice option to those tags that say, “Hello, my name is:” I used to write… Inigo Montoya, you killed my father, prepare to die.

I still need to get started on my short story for the anthology, and I have some reading to catch up on. This is on top of getting two books ready to go, and keeping my blog active. It's probably good to stay busy.

Today and tomorrow are my only real chance to get things done. Then I have one more hell week at work, and that event is over. I don't see any big-picture writing projects happening this weekend. There are a multitude of small ones though, and I probably ought to get to them… right after I add a new Otto video to Facebook. Old What's Her Face got one of those promotional plastic footballs yesterday. Otto thought it was scary, and took his time making it safe for all of us. (It's in pieces now.)

  2. Hahahaha. How do you tell a writer from other convention attendees?

    A new Otto video? Oh, I can’t wait!!! BTW, when’s Frankie coming home?

  3. “It’s in pieces now” makes me giggle. Our new furry kids have made several of the extra large Wubba toys “safe” for us! 😁

  5. Looking forward to the Enhanced League posters. Having fun reading it too. By the way, have we ever done an Ichabod Brooks/Lisa Burton Radio thing? I think we might have talked about doing it for when the short stories are released.

    Enjoy the movie.

  7. I just got back from seeing Guardians of the Galaxy II. Loved it. Funny cast, great writing, and great action. And baby Groot is irresistible.

  8. I can’t wait to see the new Lisa artwork. Sean always does such an excellent job or you. You’ve got lots of irons in the fire and that’s awesome.
    I’m currently watching the Kentucky Derby pre-show in prep of the main event. Once it’s over, I’ll be focused on writing again 🙂

  9. Penguins game 5 tonight, so that’s what I’ll be doing.

    I wish we were close enough for a doggie play date. Otto and my two would get along famously. My dogs also protect us from random things. Today, one of them protected us from a pencil and the other from a plastic fork… both of which my daughter carelessly left where they could attack. (I’m just glad the dogs won those battles… pencils and forks are tougher than plushies.)

  11. I enjoyed the football video 🙂 He’s soooo cute.
    Not a fan of the name tag thingy. We have them at church, laminated and whatnot. The Mister never wears his, and no one says anything. I can’t even make it into the sanctuary without someone telling me/ asking if I’ve forgotten it.

  12. Lucky you have Otto to defend you from vicious things like that. 😉

    I hope this next week isn’t too chaotic, and that you have the time after work calms down to get to the projects you’ve been dying to work on. Mind you, with Frankie coming home around that time, it might be a little while before things actually calm down for you…
