I've been following bits of the Wiscon/Elizabeth Moon debacle, as one does, though Wiscon is a con I have actively never considered going to, and the last couple of days I've been pondering picking up The Otter and Saint Jude again. I think I need to do some hefty revisions to get it back on track, but ...

... I started writing this thing years ago. And one of the things that's important about it in this context is that the Otter is a Sufi, more or less. (A chance-encounter-converted-this-species-to-Islam sort of Sufi.) And it's a major part of her character, but it's not, in the grand scheme of things, important to the story; she's just a Muslim character in spaaaaaaaaace. (I'm not writing it to write a Muslim character, y'know, it's just that the character I'm writing is.)

But I'm left with the sense that somehow this book needs to be written so that it might be out in the world. Because I'm more than a little agitated by [ profile] james_nicoll being able to rattle off more than one "Scary scary Islam!" SF title when asked. So I'm not writing it to make a political point, but I might finish it to make a political point. Or something.

A bit of the draft, in which Otter quotes the Qur'an. )
Hokay. I have the first draft done.

At this point I have sufficient structure in place to go review my reference books to see where I am missing critical things and flesh out what I have into a form sufficiently close to final that I can submit the manuscript. (As opposed to the first time I read half these books, where a fair fraction of what I read was "I should probably use that somewhere but I have no idea where", and thus shaped what I was doing without providing concrete detail.)

I did a pass through Reading Egyptian Art last night and tweaked a few things, and then I put the book away. And today I did a scan through the heaps of books I have everywhere and pulled out the ones I don't need anymore and put those away too, so now I have a short shelf of books for review and a much cleaner side table.

Thus what remains for the revision pass is behind the cut: )

Sixteen books. A four of fours; how pleasant. Completion of completion. Some of these will be really quick; some will take a while, but that feels eminently workable.

Have-done list:

  • First-pass processing of house listings information
  • Empty dishwasher

- Tuned guitar. (And the heck is with that second string tuning off the fourth fret? The others all tune off the fifth. Harrumph.)
- Packed OED (in two boxes [ profile] keshwyn got from [ profile] jducoeur).
- Filled the second box which was not entirely full of OED with 'misc reference', which included not only stuff like The American Boy's Handy-Book and The Chemical History of A Candle but Atlas of Middle-Earth and The Dragon-Lover's Guide to Pern. Exceedingly misc reference, in other words.
- Stripped bed and washed sheets & a couple of random towels.
- Packed boxes marked 'Classics', 'Hardcover fiction' and 'Trade paper fic' as part of clearing some shelves in the green room (marked off to-do).
- Was awfully amused to find that as things sit at the moment, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish appears to be shelved next to Chaucer.
- Contemplated guitar names.
- Fed and watered kibble monsters.
- Watered plants.
- Overheated myself something fierce. Ugh.
- Accumulated some awfully random links:

Need to do list:
- handweights
- dance vid
- eat
- remake bed
- clean catbox
- work more coherently on guitar tutorial thing
- uhhhh

Thing I forgot to complain about yesterday -- I went and looked at one of those silly quizzy things because [ profile] shaddragon was procrastinating up a storm last night, one that purported to determine what sorts of men one found sexually attractive. It had no geeky boys at all on it. And definitely no geeky boys with nice shoulders. It is, therefore, defective. (It is also defective for other reasons, but that is the primary mode of its defect as far as I'm concerned.)

To-do. Boring. )
