A nice writing week

Sometimes it’s the small things, which do all add up.

I made my writing goal of 750 words a day (3 pages) every day this week
I got an unexpected opportunity to play ultimate frisbee with some of the guys from work, and it was a brilliant fall day (yes, exercise is related to writing – it’s a part of how you keep your energy up)
I heard that the contract is in the mail for the third book in the series that got started with THE SILVER SHIP AND THE SEA
I heard that Tor is sending me some Advanced Review Copies of READING THE WIND, which is book two, for me to shop about for blurbs. There’s something extremely numbly about seeing your book feel like a book for the first time ever.
My good friend, Ken Scholes, sold a book to Beth Meacham Tor. Yeah, Ken! Ken is a brillinat writer, whose career will be worth watching and reading. He has a good spark. His book us called Psalms of Isaak.
Someone at work came up to me today and told me they read my blog and loved it (I presume the global warming blog – link at the side).
Al Gore won the Nobel Prize (this is good my soul, so good for my writing. Besides, I blogged it).
I’m about halfway through Naomi Novik’s new book, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do next.
