holy lord, i survived nano, and now my brain has returned to my head, and my head is on straight. mostly at least. so then i read about how lulu has this special nano deal. if you submit your nano novel for publishing before jan 16 they'll give you a free copy. so i'll have an actual copy of an actual book that i actually wrote, right there on my shelf. HOLY SHIT! an offer really too good to pass up. so now that my brain has regenerated, it's time to edit the thing and format it for publication in a little over a month. coz what i really like is broken brains. yummy! i'm on page ten right now. i would like to point out, just for kicks and giggles [dontchaknow]:
oh yeah, LOTS of fun.
the number of Marks of Badness seems to be going down with each page, so either i got a bit better as i eased into the story, or i'm learning to put up w/ my own crap a lot better. the first one of course being more desirable, the second one of course being more likely.
as it stands, my novel would be just under 100 pages. if those first two pages are any indication, it's gonna end up at 25 pages, if i'm lucky.
~MichaelBeckett is gonna be designing me a hawt cover. he [finally] finished the shiva design, which is here. isn't he hawt? not exactly as i pictured him [better than i pictured him actually], but still very very hawt.
also, i bought myself the new prince of persia? i'm in love. i didn't really like the second one that much when i played it, but now i'm seeing how it fits into the the whole trilogy, and i'm thinking a) that wasn't so bad after all, and b) damn. those people at ubisoft really know what they're doing. can i have their baby? there's a sort of dark sand prince infecting the good prince's body, and so he's going a little schizo, and farah's back, so the schizo's super pronounced whenever she's around, and it's hysterical. all the funny they forgot to bring to Warrior Within? it's back in Two Thrones. plus, it really can't get any better than Speed Kill Mode. what i really enjoy in life? is taking a dude out by sneaking up behind him and knifing him in the throat before he's even had a chance to figure out that he's being attacked. o YES.
also i'm thinking WHERE THE HELL IS MY PRE-ORDER BONUS BITCHES!? EB is usually awesome about that kind of stuff, but they were out of em by the time i got there. bitches. so now i have to pay for a copy on eBay coz there isn't a download for the thing anywhere online. now you know when there isn't so much as a french fan site w/ a torrent... that's when a cd is rare. or at least owned by very law-abiding people. which doesn't usually include anyone in any country where PoP has been released, but WHATEVER. i'm happy to pay for mr. stewart chatwood's music. it rawks.
[yes, that's right michael. i STOLE your word. rawk. ]
