They Didn't Ask Me

A Week of Gentle Plodding... Or is it Plotting?

Another slow week. I took Saturday off to do a day trip to Penguicon, which also meant that I couldn't stay up Friday night until 4am -- seeing as I was getting up at 5:30. (grin) In addition to an Office Hours day on Thursday, Tuesday was a short "work day" as we went out to dinner and then to the Last Days in Vietnam event (DW) (LJ).

As far as the current writing effort, I also had to work my way through editing another tough section -- a couple of To Be Written Later bits, which Now Had To Be Written. And the addition of another section which required me to readjust the ordering/time of two events in order to make things work out right. This is why you have to read through carefully and see what is what.

At Penguicon I was also able to talk about some aspects of my YA novel project -- things are still going in a direction which seems realistic from both a writing/selling point of view and a story which seems to interest people.

We shall see...

New Researches: Þjóðvegur 1 or Hringvegur around the perimeter of Iceland -- 1337 km. Speed limit 90 kph. In Iceland, 9-1-1 is 1-1-2. Keflavíkurflugvöllur or Reykjavík-Keflavík Airport (KEF). It's 10,000 foot long, 200 foot wide runways were Space Shuttle rated. Range Rover Discovery. Maître d'hôtel. In 1769 Christian VII of Denmark invited the Hungarian astronomer Miksa Hell (Maximilian Hell) to Vardø. He observed the transit of Venus, and his calculations gave the most precise calculation of the Earth–Sun distance to that date (approx. 151 million kilometres). Spent much of his reign (1766-1808) being ruled by others. Queen Christian VII was the sister of England's George III. (You remember him...) She was married at 15, divorced, died at 23. French irregular verb conjugations. Miyamoto Musashi 宮本 武蔵 (c. 1584 – 13 June 1645) was a famous Japanese swordsman, believed to have been one of the most skilled swordsmen in history. He founded the Hyoho Niten Ichi-ryu, or Nito Ryu style of swordsmanship and wrote Go Rin No Sho (The Book of Five Rings) a classic work on strategy, tactics, and philosophy. My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic. Bronies. Perhaps 10 million in U.S. The Knights Templar wore a white surcoat with a red cross and a white mantle also with a red cross. Saint Thorfinn of Hamar (died 1285).
