Thanks to everyone who voted/commented on my Heyer poll. Wow, no love for Regency Buck, eh? (I found a cheap used copy of it at Brand Books, but I guess I will save it for after I work my way through my other Heyers.)

Now I want to write something called "The Devil's Tickybox."

This weekend I finished listening to the Georgette Heyer The Devil's Cub audiobook. I loved it. Since I seem to be accumulating Heyers at an alarming rate, I have a number of choices for which Heyer to bring with me to Writercon. (I will also be bringing some non-Heyer book or other, but that's another quandary.) Which Heyer should I bring?

Please fill out poll at my LiveJournal.

Writing: I'm almost done with the chapter 15 revisions. Still making a few pesky corrections, but nothing major. I still need to figure out the details of one major plot point for the novel, which may require a bunch of research, or possibly my backbrain will suddenly spit out the solution. Meanwhile I continue to listen to the Jo book playlist.

Reading: This weekend I finished reading [community profile] papersky's Tooth and Claw and Amanda Cross's Death in a Tenured Position. Both were awesome. I'm about halfway through the very entertaining audiobook of Georgette Heyer's The Devil's Cub. Also about halfway through Ellen Klages's Portable Childhoods, and I've just started Stephen King On Writing. Still reading Portrait of a Lady and Agnes Grey via dailylit.com.

Ryan's Hope: Awesome awesome awesome. Even though I've seen these Jack/Siobhan scenes a zillion times, there's nothing like seeing them in the larger context of the story.

Soapy miscellanea: The Daytime Confidential podcasts continue to be wildly entertaining.

Weather: Too damn hot.

Writercon: I am really looking forward to it!

I'm still plugging away at chapter 15 of the Jo book. Meanwhile, I've finished listening to the audiobook of Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades, which I adored possibly even more than A Civil Contract (or, at any rate, full well as much). I've already put in a hold request at the public library for The Devil's Cub audiobook. Why did I wait so long to start reading Georgette Heyer? Why did none of you tell me I would love her? (Well, you didn't actually know I would. But still!)

Now I've started listening to the audiobook of Ellen Klages's The Green Glass Sea. Audiobooks make my daily commute a lot less hellish...

Noveling: Wrote 480 words of chapter 15 of the Jo book during lunch. I still need to continue planning certain aspects of the rest of the novel, but chapter 15 started yelling at me to start writing, so I did. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] 10zlaine (who sent me some crucial NY Times articles from December 1975), I can now torment poor Jo with historical accuracy!

Reading: I'm still reading and loving Ellen Klages's Portable Childhoods and (via dailylit.com) The Portrait of a Lady. Also listening with glee to the audiobook of Georgette Heyer's These Old Shades, which is foptastic.

Weather: We're having an extended spate of June Gloom, to the point that I am wearing knee-high boots and a sweater-coat. Can't say that I mind, but it is a bit odd. Plus it's making my allergies go to town.

Ryan's Hope: Still awesome.

OLTL: Mostly awesome.

GH: So not awesome.

This weekend I did some noveling. Chapter 14 is nearly done, and I'll need to do some pondering/planning/research before I proceed to the next chapter. Also I finished reading A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer (loved loved loved it, and searched unfruitfully for fanfic) and read the latest volume of NANA (vol. 16, I think?). Watched Dark Shadows, in which Kate Jackson wandered around Collinwood being a malevolent ghost in a beautiful 19th-century dress. And I watched another documentary about Vietnam protests (for Jo book research), The War at Home which, to my surprise, was mostly focused on Madison! Quite startling to see giant demonstrations at the university and on State Street, since I was just in Madison. Excellent film.
