the year! New Year's resolutions can be hell), and it felt ... weird. Not
impossible, but weird. The novella I wrote toward the end of the year last year was
nearly impossible, but I managed (thanks to a piece I found by Angela Knight
comparing plotting a novella to plotting a comic book story -- that I can
understand). Clearly I've been writing novels too long.
The thing about the short story was that it was, yes, short. Just as I was
figuring out where the story would go next, it was over. Just like that. I was
actually confused for a few seconds. But a short's a short. (Now, editing a
short ... let's find out if that's any different.)
The Tea Project continues. Some concern was expressed about the ancient teas,
but so far everything's been fine. The twenty-year-old tea was flavorless,
but since the packet still had the original plastic wrapping intact, I wasn't
too worried about it poisoning me. So far I've finished off four boxes,
including the old one. I'm going through ginger, peppermint, Eater's Digest, and the
detox currently. And when I want to indulge, I buy a cup of decaf coffee. Only
twenty more boxes to go!
And at long last, www.eilisflynn.com is live. A few tweaks needed, but
otherwise, it looks okay. I know how to add articles, but anything more on the
fiction page has so far stumped me. But this is a new challenge, and I'll figure it
out before the book's release date!
