That All You Got, Pansies?

So I'm basically hammering away:

Yeah, I'm taking over the tattoo shop in a month.

And working a LOT of extra shifts to make it happen.

And finishing the new novel. Another week. Maybe two.

And moving house. (Did I not mention moving? Yeah, I'm moving in a couple weeks.)

And trying like hell to find a tattooist who won't flake out after one day.

You know what I need? What's been lacking? This weekend I found out:

Food Poisoning.

Maybe it was a stomach virus, I don't know. After a day and a half of vomiting, I didn't care.

One good thing about the experience, there was plenty of time to think. I figured out where BURIED was going wrong, unpicked the bad chapters and am once again going strong. Full throttle, as it were...

Also, it turns out, I'm less the Marv-type than Dwight. Probably on account of that time I faked my own death. Maybe it's a coincidence on account of the Dwight tattoo on my leg these last ten years. Who knows? My favorite thing is that I came in second for Lucielle! Which Sin City character are you?

At the moment, the Full Throttle Daily Wordcout-O-Meter stands at 63,000 words (since about 3,000 had to come out...)

Poor you :[

Excellent word count though. I shall go and discover which character I am!

Miladysa said...

How long is that quiz?!

Ever heard of someone named Goldie? Is that good or bad? I've never seen the film.

Charles Gramlich said...

I'm 70 percent Marv. Sorry you had a bout of illness. vomiting does purge the soul, though.

Lana Gramlich said...

Damn, I did the quiz but ended up with "done, but with errors on page." Congrats on the tattoo shop & good luck! Moving again? Hadn't you just moved not long ago? Regardless--my sympathies. That's not a fun process.

Steve Malley said...

Miladysa, Goldie 'smells like angels oughta smell.' That's a good thing.

Charles, I shall nod to your pun on purge and innocently point out that vomiting is also a very good ab workout...

Lana, it is my gypsy heart.

That, and having spent the winter in a cold and drafty sh*thole!

SQT said...

Gah! Food poisoning is baaaad. My husband got food poisoning when we went to Disneyland a few months ago. I felt so bad for him. I hope you're feeling better.

I'm Goldie too btw.

Steve Malley said...

SQT, "Some reason, I can't get that damn Doublemint jingle out of my head."


Shauna Roberts said...

Sorry to hear you had food poisoning, but glad it gave you the mental space you needed to think about your book.

I guess everyone else already knows since no one asked . . . why do you have "Dwight" tattooed on your leg?

Steve Malley said...

Shauna, Big fan of the comics, big fan. And back in '96 or so, my thigh just looked so bare...

For what it's worth, I'm think I may have Hellboy battle a monster gorilla on my ribs!

Whenever I think, "I can't finish this book by MARCH!", you're my inspiration.

Synchronicity said...

I am sorry you were sick. Hope you are feeling better.

Barbara Martin said...

The test says I'm 40% Shelley. Since I have not watched that show I have no idea what this means. Would you like to englighten me, Steve, or another commenter?

For your stomach drink peppermint tea.

Steve Malley said...

CS, for what it's worth, you inspired me to outline!

Merelyme, I was down for forty-eight hours then back up and rarin' to go. Just one of those things...

Barbara, Shelly is a good girl who usually goes for the wrong guys. Brittany Murphy played her in the movie.

Well, at least you sound like the type to thrive under pressure ;-)
