I got two covers done today, plus I got the basic format for two more stories. One was a collections so good on me. In addition, I finished another chapter of the new romance novel. Morgan has realized that yes, she's already falling for Quinn. And after a brief bit of 'oh fuck no' she basically shrugged and decided to go for it.

Have I mentioned that Morgan is a LOT like me?

Because she is. I do not overthink anything. Hell, most of the time I barely think about it and just go for it, trying things until it works. Kind of fun writing a character so much like me.

Quinn is going to freak the fuck out when she realizes it. XD

So yeah, the matchmaking efforts I had vaguely planned in my head aren't going to happen. Morgan jumped straight over it. Oh well, it'll be fun to write her slowly seducing Quinn with Science! Except no, it'll be with ART! *Morgan waves tiny fist in the air dramatically, hair blowing behind her before she breaks into giggles*

Yeah, having way too much fun with Morgan and Quinn. I'm over 20K and I think I'm about half done. Maybe more. We'll see how things go. Quinn isn't going to make it easy, that much I know.

Work was a little better but that was solely and entirely because I forgot that I was supposed to do an audit today. Outright blanked it. So did the boss and my coworker. Just means I'll do it tomorrow. *sigh*

Goals for tomorrow include writing another chapter, getting more stories into basic format (I'm trying to get way ahead so I don't have to worry during the workshop next month), going and setting up an appointment for getting my car serviced (overdue and definitely needed before the six hour drive to the workshop), and that's about it.

Oh. Yeah. And doing something with the latest load of zucchini that my plant produced. I've got more basketball sized ones to deal with because I let it slide. Oops.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

"Blake and Mortimer" is one of the most well-known Belgian comics series, created by Edgar P. Jacobs (1904-1987). The title is a bit of a misnomer due to phonetic issues - the titular character is, in fact, Philip Mortimer, a British scientist. He is aided by his "heterosexual life partner" (a common feature in Belgian comics at the time, and the inspiration for many a slash fanfic) capt. Francis Blake of the MI5. The book mixes detective and spy elements with fantastic concepts such as UFOs, time travel and Atlantis.

I was going to post my first contact with their books, "The Necklace Affair", but thought it best to start with the most famous story of all, "The Yellow 'M'" - the one with the most iconic cover of the series, copied by various comic book artists.



Verbosity ensues )

"Blake and Mortimer" were recently (wow, actually, about a decade ago or so) translated by Cinebook Ltd., a British company who specializes in Belgian and French comics, which gives an interesting twist to a comic set in Britain with two protagonists from Albion.

I turned 50 today. One one hand, that's kinda a wow, 50 years. Huh. On the other, it was just another day. Went to work, forgot my usb drive so I couldn't do any writing or farting around. Went out to dinner at Olive Garden with the hubby.

Just another day.

But I did get presents! The hubby bought me a fitting book (for sewing), a book on making your own bath bombs and a pattern I'd wanted. Plus Wonder Woman! *cheers wildly* My mom sent me this cool gift box with 50 gifts from the sea (shells and the like), 50 antique buttons from her and my grandmother, 50 jelly beans and $50 in one dollar bills to celebrate my 50 years of life. AND work gave me a lovely card with a $25 gift certificate for Barnes and Noble so that's good, too.

Not a bad birthday, overall. I guess once you hit 50 or so you just don't have that huge thrill with birthdays. I'm more excited about the writing workshop next month than this.

Goals for tomorrow include getting 3 overdue Now Available posts up, actually working on prepping a short story for submission (if that anthology is still open--have to check), writing (please, I about went crazy today for lack of it), exercises and that's about it. Maybe looking at the Wonder Woman extras. We'll see.

Off to bath and bed for me--I planned ahead and got Lush floating islands when we hit the mall on Sunday. *big grin*

Goodnight everyone!
