This morning I'm grateful for:

     The gobs of editing I got done yesterday. My brain was turning to mush by the end of it (and my spine wasn't happy either), but it was worth it. Did a verbal edit of all of 'Vigil' and got through three chapters of book 3, taking me past the halfway point. Yeehaw!

     After fighting with Poser far too much of the day yesterday, and leaving it on overnight to accomplish precisely nothing (because it has crashed but wouldn't tell me that) I am grateful that I a) did not smash my computer to pieces ;) and b) I finally figured out this morning why it was refusing to render despite everything I tried--some little box got clicked somehow that I know better than to click. At last today I can move forward with my internal 'Vigil' illustration. And here I was wondering why the software had taken to a sudden hatred of Heruvael!

     Sleeping pills are marvelous. Made it past 6 am this morning, thanks to that--which sure beats the 4:30 am I wasn't able to sleep beyond Saturday morning!
Where I'm At:
book 3: ch 17/pg 131
Emotional Status:
productive Triumphant over Poser, Hahaha!

I admire your restraint and am very glad you managed to figure out what the problem was in the end. It must have been intensely frustrating.

Huzzah for more editing! With my writing schedule looking like it is, I'm going to need something relaxing to read.

I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

I'm surprised I haven't gone half-bald with all the crap Poser and Vue have given me in the last two years. It helps to remember how much I've learned and the things I don't trip up over anymore!

Thanks!

It went too fast, actually. Probably because I've been thinking of the three-day weekends I have coming up.

Are there holidays coming up or do you have some time off?

I'm taking next Monday off for dentist appointment/day-after-my birthday. And then not too long after that comes July 4, Independence Day. It will be a treat to have two 4-day workweeks in a row!

Goodness, not quite the birthday treat I'd hope for. I hope you manage to have fun anyway. Do you have any special plans?

Well, I'm eager to see Pixar's 'Wall-E' but that comes out the Friday afterward. I'm also thinking of going to the zoo on Monday. They've a big new exhibit that opened focused on Russia's eastern coast.

YOUR EDITING PROGRESS IS SO GOOD. GLAD TO HEAR YOU GOT YOUR RENDERING PROBLEM SOLVED.

OVERLOOKING SO TINY A MISTAKE CAN BE SUCH A FRUSTRATION BUT GOD SEEMS TO BRING THOSE ARE WAY TO
WORK ON US.

SOME MORE SLEEP, GOOD TO HEAR THAT.

I'm very glad to have the rendering done, even if it took a while yesterday morning.

Yes, and I made it to 5 am this morning, which was nice!
