The current meme is to post the first line or two of your first entry from each month of 2005, which serves as a review of your year:
March: I had a lovely thing happen to me last week. Lou Anders at Pyr passed along some praise from Michael Blumlein, whose wonderful novel The Healer I copyedited, and told me, “I have yet to meet an author who doesn’t think you are a goddess.”
April (actually from the beginning of May, as I had no April comments): I know I rarely post to this journal and am rather private about my opinions unless I’m truly riled, so I thought it might be nice to do the question meme that’s going around.
May: Over in his sff.net newsgroup today, I offered Wil McCarthy congratulations on the rave review SFRevu gave his To Crush the Moon. He responded with this absolutely lovely compliment about my copyediting:
August: I’ve added about five thousand more words to my novel, and I’ve taken out about four thousand that didn’t work anymore because the book ended a bit earlier temporally than I had thought it would.
I really wanted to include this one showing all the pretty flowers I have at my house in the spring, though. :-) You should check it out.
