Gratitudes:

     Some treats on the money front lately. Placed an order with Alice.com Saturday, and for some reason they gave me $10 off. I'm not complaining! Also, with my last Amazon.com order (using a certain lovely family's lovely gift card ;) I got $3 worth of MP3 downloads, so got myself three songs for $2.97. Neat!

     My work for 'alternate' has been going so well I'm getting downright nervous! Saturday saw me making a bearded mage Arun in Poser in just a couple hours, and a couple hours today got him and Hileko together for some distinctly mushy posing. Bearing down fast on the tough stuff!

     My progress with my three-day writing weekend (got Monday off) has been good enough. Butchered a couple characters Saturday night, then dragged myself through the remainder of the killing this morning. Knowing this was coming since 1997 doesn't make it easier, but I am sure glad to be past (except for hours of editing, bleah). And now I have tonight and Monday to get some distance from that nastiness--glad I have tomorrow off!

It is nice to hear about all the good progress you are making. Looking
forward to seeing Arun the mage illustration.

I am definitely not looking forward to finding out who are the poor souls you are killing off.

Nice blessing on Alice.com.

It's driving me a little crazy that I don't know why I'm getting $10 off!

I'll be curious what you think of mage Arun if I can pull this off. I have a hard time 'recognizing' him with a beard! (And I think Geren rather looks like a madman terrorist with one! =D )

I'm not looking forward to getting yelled at over who I butchered!

Sounds like some tough going with the writing. I hope thing ease for you a bit now that the worst of it is past.

I'm intrigued to hear about the alternate Geren. Sounds like some fun to balance things out.

Done with the slaughtering and next up is the torture. =P But at least after that things will change quite a bit.

I don't know how well Geren will show up, as he's not the focus of the picture. But yes, it is nice to have a much nicer project to balance against the writing!
