I have all the links for the long-overdue Now Available post but nothing else. Ugh. It will go up tomorrow, damn it.

On the other hand, I managed to get the cover, POD and Ebooks done for this week's story this evening, plus I started a new short story and got 650 words on it. Not bad for not starting until 7:30 pm.

Of course now I'm wiped. I'd wanted to take a bath and get some reading done but nope. Going shower and flop in bed instead.

Work has just ordered me a new Microsoft Surface. I'll be starting a new project soon and need it far more than I need a desk computer. Nice. I've wanted one to play with and the hubby wouldn't let me get one. Better still, I'll be able to long in remotely on it, which is a first for me. I've never been allowed remote access before.

Now if they'd just give me a damn pay raise, too. *sigh*

Casserole turned out really good. I've got 3 extra lunches so that makes me happy.

Goals for tomorrow include finishing the new short story (house party with all the girls!), get this week's story uploaded everywhere, get the damn Now Available post up finally, exercises and pasta for dinner. Also potentially sending Fossil History (my recent unicorn story) out to another publisher.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

'Faces'

Continuing Harvey Dent's 75th anniversary is Matt Wagner's 'Faces' from Legends of the Dark Knight #28-30. It's considered by a lot of people to be one of the definitive Two-Face stories. I'm personally on the fence; it's well-written and drawn but Harvey's character and overall motivations are fairly inconsistent with how he's usually depicted. The story might have been served better with a number of other Bat-villains instead. But who knows, you might think differently.

In the beginning, Kara wore a blue frock:

Action-Comics-252-p00

If it looked a bit like a high school cheerleader's outfit (back in the day when cheerleader outfits didn't show much skin and weren't all that tight fitting), that was probably intentional. And this suited her just fine all through high school and most of the way though college. And then, 12 years later, her editors belatedly realized the 60's had brought a sea change in fashion, and things started to get weird. Sartorial madness ensued )

And that is the long and sad story of Kara's closet of super outfits. Maybe someone sensible came along and rescued her from further sartorial shame by stealing all but the hotpants ensemble?

In some cases sadly, in other cases thankfully, we never got to see her wearing some of the other outfits in that closet, but evidence of their existence was preserved:Read more... )

Finished the novel!

Jaden surprised me by proposing in the parking lot. Padma, of course, immediately accepted. They're going to do Justice of the Peace and then throw a party for their friends instead of a big fancy wedding.

I'm so happy with the ending of the story. Not with the title, which sucks so bad, but the story itself is awesome. I'm going to spend time tomorrow going over the opening chapter and thinking of a new title and then I'm going to start a new story. Probably a short story. Because that's what I do, start something else right away.

Got a reply on the story I submitted to F&SF. It was rejected but for completely different reasons than the first time. The editor felt that the balance of inner and external action was off, and he thought the action was a little too slow in starting. Which, fair enough. I was going for a very thinky story so the balance was off a bit. And the unicorns showed up pretty late in the story.

Not that I'm going to edit it. I'm going to send it off to an open anthology and see what they think. I spent a while today tracking down places to submit fiction and I've got tons of markets to try out now. Some are novel only but hey, most have anthologies, too. If I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it all out, darn it.

Got my steps today but not my exercises. I should try to do that before I take my bath today though it'll have to be light given that my arms are still flaring a little. My goal is to go to bed before 10 tonight. I haven't been getting enough sleep and it's making me cranky.

So, goals for tomorrow include going over the opening of the book and fixing the title, getting this week's story's cover and ebook done (as I did get the format and cover blurb finished today), exercises, and making casserole for dinner.

Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

August marks the 75th anniversary of Two-Face's first appearance (Detective Comics #66). To celebrate I figured I'd post a few Two-Face comics throughout the month.

First up is Bruce Timm's 'Two of a Kind' from Batman: Black and White.

The Shocker is a Spider-Man villain that is somewhere in the high-B low-A area. Whenever he and Spider-Man fight, he always gives Spider-Man a hard time. Yet he never quite "hit the big time." I used to think that was because he had no connection to Peter Parker or Peter's friends.

Ah, 1970. The "Mod Squad" had been on the air for three years. Over in Britain, "Mod" styles were fading fast, but in offices of DC comics, where "hip" and "trendy" editors were always proud to be in the vanguard of all the latest cultural trends ("vanguard means in the rear, right?"), it was time for Supergirl to get slightly less behind the times, and a new "Mod" outfit was exactly the thing. Creator credits were still too radical for DC back then, but the Internet knows the blame is all on the head of writer/artist Mike Sekowsky.

And that is the tale of how Supergirl hung up her cheerleader frock after, what, 12 years of wearing the exact same thing every day? Something tells me she would have changed things up a lot sooner if not for wanting to avoid a fight with her stick-in-the-mud cousin and his small town Kansas prudery.
