Today I'm grateful for accomplishments and distractions:

     So yes, it was a year and a handful of days later than my original goal, but I'm glad to finally have my winter avatar done, to join my spring and autumn ones. Feels good!

     Also happy to have made huge progress on my book 5 'trailer' avatar this weekend. Started it Friday, now only one (the trickiest) scene left.

     Grateful to have chapter 36 of book 4 pounded into ARG!-ready shape, and have a tentative start at pounding into shape the appalling mess that is chapter 37.

     Very glad to have the first scenes of chapter 38 written and be at where I to be before I stop until I get back from California. It was nice to leave off at something that resembles a high point.

     Most of all, this three-day weekend I'm grateful for movies. Writing the first scene of chapter 38 Saturday evening was horrific; I'm so glad I could drown my brain in a favorite movie, stay up late, and go straight to bed. Largely warded the nightmares, yay. Wonderful to have movies as an escape from plot-musing and editing too.

     Last but not least, I'm grateful for the supreme beauty of snowfall and the fact I wasn't feeling as awful all day today (female curse) as the way I felt this morning/wee hours foreboded. It's wonderful when painkillers actually work!

Painkillers can be a wonderful thing.

You look to have been surprisingly productive so far this month. I always struggle to get anything done in December.

The snow falling in your icon makes me feel so peaceful.

They certainly can be!

It is a tricky month, though I've found around the holidays themselves splendid for writing, and around the new year. Not this year, though!

Yay! =) They've been getting the forecast wrong every single day lately, but hopefully more snow today!

And aye it sounds like you've been wonderfully productive! ^-^ *hugs*

Thanks! They're not, though I found a partial way around it by sticking a 2d Poser picture into Vue rather than the 'real' 3d character. Which is why I can't animate Hileko. But it's better than nothing at all!

Running about half-speed of November, but still better than nothing...

The avatar is so pretty. The snow looks so inviting. I'll trade for all the fog and dampness we
been having of late.

So glad the pain killer are working for you. How much longer will it last?
Glad you are making progress. Going to need to start getting ready for the trip.

Glad to hear you like it! I bet you'll be ready for San Diego--the forecast this week is mostly sunny and 70.

Hopefully not too much longer. It will be nice to be done avoiding dairy products. I'll certainly be back to normal by the time I get on the airplane.

It will be nice to have Friday off for packing and errands.
