 I swear, I didn't even eat that much. Well, maybe more malted milk balls than I ought. I do love them so.

I've been writing the untitled Advent calendar vignette, rather desultorily -- so I haven't been posting progress, but I do have 1178 words on it so far. I keep doing other things -- like catching up on my friendslists, and cooking/baking, and trying to finish The Age of Wonder, and hosting a special Halloween livestream of The Three Musketeers, because TheFirstChibi wondered if anyone in the group of Paul McGann fans on tumblr would, and, well, I like socializing over movies even if it's on the internet, and, of course, knitting.

Speaking of knitting:



I did two more repeats of the cable pattern since yesterday. I love cabling. Especially now that I'm using a dpn as the holder instead of a cable pin. Just slide the stitches to the other end!

I seem to have taken on more writing projects -- [personal profile] laylah pointed me at Riptide's open calls, and I think Julia-and-Mrs.-Campbell is now earmarked for them (which means it's up next, after the Advent story), and I mentioned the auction last post, and this means the Storm Moon Regency-lesbians thing will be Caroline and Julia in their Season, which is pretty much the only time frame I can have them still fooling around but past their magic 18th birthdays. Also, uh, I may have promised Chibi a brief fanfic, because in the Disney Three Musketeers, the Athos/D'Artagnan slash JUST WRITES ITSELF. Missing-scene between the tavern scene and the cannonball. Sex scenes are easy, and the Advent story hasn't got one.

My HEAD, you guys. Let me get outside of more of my coffee.

 I'm not doing it. Not by the rules, anyway.

I'm not really ready to start on the sequel, yet. I just received Memoirs of a Sergeant: The 43rd Light Infantry During the Peninsular War, which is going to be critical for writing the Rockingham sections, and I need to do more research about  the Company of St. Barbara, because I SO want to include them somehow!

Also, I have other open-call things with actual submission deadlines that I want to try, before I work on a sequel to a novel that hasn't been bought yet.

One of them's the Advent calendar story, which I hope I can finish this week. Another one is Carina's Home for the Holidays military-themed one, which I know needs to be about the Rockinghams' cook-maid Polly and her soldier sweetheart, and then the next one is the call for Regency lesbian ones that Storm Moon Press is interested in.

Now, Home for the Holidays is supposed to be novella-length, and An Improper Arrangement is specified as short story, so if I knock both of those out by the end of the month, and maybe start on the sequel, I might hit 50,000 words. It just won't be all on one project.

Plus, I need to keep submitting Love Continuance and Increasing, and there's knitting.

But, if any of you are doing NaNo, I will definitely be cheering you on!
