...another morning I've stayed awake to see...

Whew... this week is already wearing me out.
I'm installing two different free word-processing programs, OpenOffice.org and Jarte. I've come up with yet another Way To Attempt To Make Money And Still Be Me, which involves newspaper columns, which means I need things like word count and decent formatting options, which WordPad and Notepad lack. I've got a couple of ideas and of course it's a great place to work over my story drafts. Speaking of which, "Amber and the Freckle Paint" could use some critique - anyone out there interested in giving some heavy feedback on a childrens' story?
I've got a couple images finished for it and don't plan to illustrate every page, so hopefully I'll have it in finished form, printed and bound, by January. The first copy of course goes to Amber, likely via my mother but I can cope with that. Anyone else who would like a copy, please drop me a note if you're a diaryland member or just send it to my gmail - girl.with.ink - letting me know you're interested. I'll send you the files for free, if y'want to print it out yourself; if you want a handmade, handbound, signed copy I'll likely ask for the cost of printing and shipping or at least a few pens or something sparkly in trade.
Umm... can't really think of any other news off the top of my head. Must drop off mail, I've got a lot of things I want to send out and I keep putting it off. Likely going over to Dixon House today too, need to do some scanning and go shopping with Deborah.
Oh, and if you're a fan of sci-fi/fantasy crossovers, track down Rhiannon and pester her for the first bit of a story she's working on. Damn good read, great idea, and I know she's always interested in feedback too. ^.^
Oh, and the reason I'm up and productive at a Normal Hour? I foolishly watched parts one and two of "The Stand" miniseries last night. *wry grin* Hell, the BOOK gives me nightmares, I should have known better than to watch something like that just before bed. Ehh, at least it means my mind is still functioning enough to get Cate up, make coffee, and leave myself some important notes for if I DO fall asleep.
