So today we finished our first draft of Dark Days, and then we went right on to In/Spectre, and now we have a first draft of both! Tadah! (This was only made possible because we translated the first forty or so pages of In/Spectre many weeks ago.) But the to-do list is still long, and the light at the end of the tunnel is so very very small.
And that's where we were when we got an email about the possibility of new work, and I'm so torn about it, because I love new stories, but on the other hand, our workload is already pretty oppressive, and any of these new ones would be in a ridiculously time-consuming script format. So for now we're pretending the email doesn't exist, and maybe later we'll make the mistake of looking into some of those titles (or maybe it won't be a mistake because we'll decide we're not interested in any of them).
But for now, we're taking the evening off.
Today I'm thankful for being in demand, finishing those two first drafts, deals on airfare to Japan that happen to coincide with when we would want to go if we decide we can handle that kind of recklessness, still having leftover pizza, and also having ice cream.
