Looks like an excellent start! (And of course, congrats and good luck.)

Also, I envy you that headboard; I've never even *seen* one that had at least two full-size shelves on it. Probably can't hurt to have your bed set up so you can absorb writings by osmosis, either. ;)

Sometimes I do wish there was a like button here. :)

(If nothing else, your leaving an actual comment gave me a chance to use the icon I'd meant to on the first post!)

It was designed to stand alongside a child's bed, but when we were furniture shopping, it was exactly what we wanted, so we improvised :-)

That was my first thought too, "Where can I get one of those headboards?"

Congratulations! I saw you did a Reddit AMA which I missed so will enjoy going back to see what was discussed.

Now get up, get breakfast and get us more books going! This is wonderful!

I started a new book a week or so back. Currently about 10K words into the book codenamed Bob.

I'm picturing a glowing Dresden Files skull, but the glow is actually made by a fire spider inside...

Have you read UNBOUND yet? :-)

No, I haven't. Apparently there is something fun I can anticipate...

Today is drop-day for A Red-Rose Chain and I'm not going to get to that for a while, either...

Deep planning, I see!

Oh, yes. Don't want to rush into anything without proper preparation.

Ah, Bob. He was my favorite. I like the way you do things, Jim. Now get back to Bob, please. If I don't get to sleep in on my days off, neither do you.

Congrats again!

I've added 150 more words to Bob, but I keep getting distracted by internet stuff ;-)

OMG grats!

I've been promoting my fanfic all over, mostly to just prepare myself for critics and self-promotion when my own day comes.

Quite seriously, you'll do better when you've caught up with the sleep deficit that many people who have both a day job and a writing career suffer from. After a while there will spots where just the writing career helpfully provides the sleep deficit, but one step at a time. 8-)

Those are great sheets.

You're not the first one to mention the sleep deficit and recovery time. I keep thinking it's weird that I'm feeling so tired today...

So are those sheets for purple prose inspiration? :P

Good for you, dude. Sleep as much as you can at first. You'll be amazed by how good it feels to establish your own sleep schedule.

You need to persuade one of the cats to nap on your head. That will keep your head nice and cozy-warm, which will help you sleep better

You look very cute and the drool does not show at all :-)

Wow!

Who knew?

We do exactly the same thing.

Only I don't get paid for it.

Or look as good with no clothes on...

(I'll be in my bunk...)
