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?
