Sorry I'm late.  I had a spreadsheet to do and this one takes a lot of time.  Hunting down invoices so I can find part numbers.  Hunting down zip codes so I can assign it to the right person.  That sort of stuff.  I have a spreadsheet of invoices and another of zip codes, so it's not hard, but it's time consuming.  Yeah, yeah, there's probably an easier way involving macros, but I have a loathing of macros.  Nasty, nasty little macros hurt the precious.  :hiss:

Such is life.  It funds the writing, and that's all that matters.  Speaking of which, I'll be getting a bill from the cover artist soon.  She sent me the proof of Cinder Ugly's cover, which I need to approve sometime today.  It's hard saying if the cover is exactly right when I haven't even started writing the book yet.  I'll cross my fingers and send a wish out to the universe for it to be what I need by the time the book is done. 

In other news, I spent some time yesterday creating a hellbeast.  It popped up in the story, so I need to figure out what it looks like so I can accurately describe it.  Right now, I'm going with 'looks like a longhorn screwed a poodle.'  I'd post the image, but I cobbled it together from images I don't own, and I don't want to infringe on anyone's copyrights.  Picture a longhorn bull with the head of a standard poodle and the tail of a lizard.  I think I'll make it pink. Or maybe puce.  Mauve?  :shrug:  I guess we'll all find out at a later date.

And now it's time for me to call the office.  What's up in your world?


  1. ROFL! Occasionally, I want to live in your head.

    Let's not talk about excel sheets. KTHXBAI

    I'm watching the weather. We've started with the precipatation and it's freezing. Yippee. Not.

    And...I mentioned excel. Ugh.

    Stay warm!

  2. Yay for paying work! It keeps us all going. :-)

    What a cool hellbeast! I love the description; too bad you can't show us. And pink would defy all conventions! LOL!
