Despite throwing out three thousand words of a tangent that went nowhere, as well as describing an upcoming wedding as a "bog ceremony" (instead of a "big" one), I just crossed the 50K word count on Tufa #5.

A swamp isn't the worst metaphor for marriage I ever heard…

Charles de Lint, one of the best writers out there and the godfather of urban fantasy, says some very nice things about LONG BLACK CURL. https://www.sfsite.com/fsf/2015/cdl1507.htm

Sometimes I just want to keep writing conversations between characters even after they've finished talking about the important plot stuff. Anyone else ever experience that?

That happens to me all the time. I write everything they say and then trim things down to what is needed as things go on. Occasionally they have said something important that helps the story but wasn't in the "important" section.

In the original James Bond movies, we had to wait to movie #6, "On Her Majesty's Secret Service," to get a movie that was specifically about Bond the person, as opposed to Bond's job. In the new continuity, they seem to all be about Bond the person first and foremost, including the upcoming "Spectre." Is this an improvement? Discuss.

Anyone who's talked to me about movies knows I hate the "ass-kicking waif" trend of women in action movies. But I always assumed it was simply because that's the type of woman most directors find attractive. This piece by Amanda Marcotte completely surprised me with the idea that any other kind of woman is, in fact, too intimidating and threatening for the Zack Snyders and Brett Ratners of the filmmaking world. http://www.rawstory.com/2015/07/hollywood-dont-be-afraid-to-cast-strong-looking-women/

Some days, the part of your novel that gets worked on is determined by how long you get to keep your interlibrary loan book.

I caught Hammer's "The Devil-Ship Pirates" today. A Spanish privateer damaged during the Armada's failed attack on England goes ashore and convinces the inhabitants of an isolated village that the Spanish actually won and now rule England. The immortal Christopher Lee is the pirate captain, and the cast is a great collection of Hammer regulars.

Started the day with this new track from SHEL. It's got an atmosphere similar to the one I've tried to create in many of my books and stories; again, see how magical music can be.

I'm working at the coffee shop, and someone just told me, "Southern expressions always seem to involve an animal doing something, don't they?" She's not wrong.
