I’m totally in love with the song by Vampire Weekend. I never thought I’d hear a song about grammar that I loved (an even one I hated). Actually the whole album is pretty awesome. The funny thing about it is that when I listened to it I remembered having an argument with my parents about the Serial Comma way, way, back when I was in 6th grade. I was for it and they were not. Not I’m pretty liberal with where I comma-nate; if I think it clarifies the sentence, I’m for it, if not, fuck it.
I actually managed to get all my editing caught up on the stuff that’s typed and I just need to catch up on my typing, which is difficult because there’s not a lot of free time. I’m selling myself more and more on really restructuring those first few chapters into probably just two. There’s a lot of good stuff in them, but I think they drag things out a bit. On a good note though, I think I’m really improved from my last book. Not only am I finding less technical errors, but I’m finding less I want to change.
So of course since I have zero time I got a short story in my head I am dying to write, so I’m going to try to quickly write it. It’s kind of a belated Valentine’s day story mixed with a bit of Lovecraftian Horror. Of course all my Valentine’s ARE horror so it works well. Maybe I’ll put it up here when I’m done.
