Writing Diary: December 20, 2004

I think that I can safely say

I’ve done my writing for the day.

Sorry, I normally try to stay away from rhyming couplets, but that one came out without trying.

In any event…today was a CBC science column day (I’m about to head across the street to the studio), so I did that this morning (after a trip to the YMCA to try to exercise-bike off a few extra Christmas calories from last night’s dessert-fest party), writing an update to my occasional Christmas column series on “clausotelometry,” the study of the technology of Santa Claus. You’ll see the polished fullness of that column here tomorrow.

This afternoon, I braved the -30 C wind chill with my laptop–I mean, carrying my laptop–and mosied (moseyed? Hmmm…) on down to Second Cup to work some more on Excalibur Reforged. Past page 200 already on this go-around–still tweaking and adding bits, but it’s going much faster, since there’s far less word-polishing required. Once more through after this go-through, prepare a rough outline of how I think the rest of the series will go, and it’s off on an agent quest, I think–sometime next month, if I’m lucky.
