hair dye!

January 2, 2009 at 7:48 pm (this and that, writing)

I just got in my electric lizard hair dye from Manic Panic, and I in the process of greening up by bangs! I’m a little nervous about it, I really liked my old turquoise color but I needed a change. 

Today I’m working on Pharmakoi and I’m really pleased about how well it’s going. I prefer editing to writing, and so being in the editing stage is an awesome, luxurious feeling. I think that by Monday I’ll be at least 2/3 of the way through it all, so cool! 

Actually, I’m not sure if it’s really 2/3 but the book is kind of in three sections at this point– the first part is a (fairly) linear narrative, keeping to one overarching storyline, though it does jump from the two main groups of people before they all meet. Then the second part crosscuts (for lack of a better term) among all the different groups after they split up. So what I consider to be the last third of the novel regains its linearity for the most part, although I suppose it does jump from group to group a little bit– but there are far fewer groups. I’m not sure if that makes sense to anyone but me.

At any rate, the project is really moving along, I have new hair, my right ear is up to 1g and I have hopes of tomorrow getting the left up to 1g, I just planted our first coconut tree in Animal Crossing: City Folk on Raechel’s Wii, so all is well. Later I’m going to see if I can find Harvest Moon for Gamecube (I know, I know, I’m behind the times something fierce) and then I’m going to attempt to veganize America’s Test Kitchen’s manicotti recipe.

    If it makes you feel any better, I haven’t played Harvest Moon yet either, despite rumors that the Farmer’s daughter is quite a catch.

    In this version, I am the farmer’s daughter! I’m trying to seduce the dude who works at the seed shop. It’s a weird game. I think for time-consuming town-based games I still prefer Animal Crossing. . .
