Revision finished, sent…

Revision finished, sent out to readers. I'm pretty happy with this revision -- the story doesn't feel quite done yet, but it's definitely much *better* than it was before I started work today. It's still a little all over the place, and a bit over-pointed, but I can't quite see how to fix that right now. I think I need a break from it, and possibly a second or third opinion. It's the story of Leilani, Lakshmi's sister and Chaya's aunt. The next thing I have to do is finish "The Student", which is the story of Leilani's father.

I may work on that tomorrow morning; in the afternoon, I'm cooking with Mya, teaching her Sri Lankan recipes, in preparation for dinner Friday (it's better if you make some dishes days in advance, I swear). If not tomorrow, then Thursday -- I'm having lunch with Adam, but am otherwise just here working all day. I need to get going on the Tananarive Due stuff pretty soon. I did finish that Bradbury collection yesterday, though. Mmm... Also read a little of a comic, Barry Ween, Boy Genius (I think that's the title). Great fun. Made me laugh out loud lots. And today I read a little of Barr Girls, a comic set on a world where everyone's a hermaphrodite. They're just like us otherwise. Smutty and clever. (The comic, not us. Or not necessarily us.)

Oh, before I forget, I should mention that in my drive for greater efficiency, I have made it much easier to join my readers' list -- and to drop off it. It's now a yahoogroup, which also means that a) you can talk to each other and b) old messages are archived, so you can catch up if you accidentallly delete stuff.
