To change, transform.
- Sir James Murray's New English Dictionary, 1888
Just to change things up a bit, I decided to put today's Forgotten English at the beginning of the post. If you're only reading for the Forgotten English, you can stop now.
Friday, as predicted, I didn't write. That's not a bad thing as I usually give myself Fridays off anyway. Instead, I chose to read through the Beta Reader comments for The Third Prince. They are actually quite encouraging. I will be finishing that before I write the next little bit of Overlord.
Overlord is actually getting pushed back twice, as I will also be writing a guest blog post for All Things Books (who gave me that lovely review of The Dying God & Other Stories). That, too, will take place before I get started on my daily three thousand. I don't feel bad about it at all. I am so far ahead of the game, that I only need to write two hundred words to get to today's target. Of course, now that I've said that, I'll start falling behind. Isn't that the way it usually works?
Oh, in case you were wondering, the sparring workshop on Saturday went very well. I was thoroughly owned, largely because I really don't like sparring and so don't really practice sparring. I was quite mad at myself for falling so far behind, and made a quick resolution to spar more. Now I've decided I probably won't. It's not like I intend to compete. Can you imagine! Me, in a kick boxing competition? Hah (read here: not bloody likely)!
Right, there's a lot to do today, so I must sign off. Have a terrific Monday (well, as terrific as Mondays can get, anyway).
