My days have been occupied with multitasking. June 1st fast approaches. Racing against the calendar (like racing against the clock, but with less per-minute urgency), and trying to figure out if there's a way to divide my brain into two equal parts so that each half can think independent of the other. That would probably require a lot of medical equipment and some very good jars and be all-around messy. If you haven't heard from me lately and expected to, this is why. My head's all over the place.
Now, I could appeal to Apollo, the Bringer of Wisom, and that would make my writing schedule more regimented. I'd probably get the writing done early but the real 'heart' of it would be markedly absent. If I appeal instead to Dionysus, the Bringer of Love, then it would be all heart and emotion, and I probably wouldn't finish on time. Life, then, is a quest for Cygnus, the god of Balance.
Speaking of Greeks, I've been delving a fair bit into mythology with my current WotC book. Not nearly as much as I want to. I'm hoping after my first draft is done I'll be able to explore that even more.
In a completely unrelated matter (well, sort of), check out the 4th Edition shambling mound. Like many geeks in the fantasy writing/gaming industry, I'm a big fan of monsters. And there's nothing quite the same as a big plant monster than engulfs you with its body, is resistant to fire, and actually gets stronger when hit with electricity. Fun!
Here is the 3rd Edition shambling mound. They looked kind of goofy before that.
