Went to my eye exam but didn't bring sunglasses for the dilated return trip because, hey, it's January in Michigan. My reward: sunshine! You're welcome, everybody else.

Thank you! I think Leland's art sure is wonderful, so I'm glad it appeals to you as well. (We're working on another book together as we speak…)

In this script I managed to spell paraphernalia wrong, and differently wrong, every time I used the word.

What I have: 67,493 words describing 1202 panels+dialogue. I'm pretty sure (okay, I'm certain) not all the words and panels are great. But they're written, and now it's time to write a different script for a while.

Hard to believe we were here last year, but we were. The first time a ray comes right at you and then veers off just in time? I just got goosebumps thinking about it.

Maybe we can convince the owner to quarter it. (Just kidding. I don't support such heresy. But…dibs on the lower right.)

I'm watching that one too, with similar regrets (and enjoyment that this exists, even if I can't have it).

Script-writing dilemma #4897: What to do when you see a perfect opportunity for a Monty Python joke, but know it's tonally wrong for the scene…heck, for the whole book? (Solution: I wrote it in anyway. I'll mourn for it after killing it off in the next draft.)

Hello world (but esp. ): I just appended "-FINAL" to a script, making this a good night. Now, back to those other scripts that are…far away from that status. So, good night!
