2. Vertigo does not get better when you add hypoglycemic dizziness to it. Just FYI. In case you were wondering. I don't usually need this tattooed on my forehead in mirror-writing. Just occasionally.
3. I find that I am so averse to talking about politics in entries to this lj that I go tight-jawed when I think of even saying so. I just want it over, and I'm being kind of hypervigilant about my boundaries: I read the news, but only when I feel like it (which is at least daily, but still). I do not watch TV news. I do not watch debates. And when political volunteers telephone or show up on my doorstep, I get rid of them as quickly as I can, because this is my house, and I can't control whether there are ads everywhere and endless rehashes of the same soundbites, but I can control my house.
4. timprov says I should believe in the writing of this book because I know how these people go. And I do, I do. I never had to call gaaldine to say that I was definitely unexpectedly pregnant by a man who was about to be the Queen of Air and Darkness's teind. (And in fact, I am neither Janet nor Ang, and neither is gaaldine.) But I know how these conversations work even so. This is a very strangely fluent sensation, made stranger by its similarity to writing Dwarf's Blood Mead and The Mark of the Sea Serpent.
5. You know how I said I wasn't going to write another book at this desk? Apparently I was wrong. But I kind of wish I hadn't been. I just don't see a way to make desk shopping a good thing right now, and the adjustable height desks I found online were Not Suitable for a variety of reasons. So I think further thinky thoughts about it, in hopes that something will come swimming to the surface and I will get to say, "Oh, of course! That!" But I'm not really counting on it.
There is more, but I think that's it for now.
