No Break. Maybe Some Whisky.

by wjw on October 20, 2019

I have finished Fleet Elements, which is either Praxis Book VII (according to me) or Praxis Book V (according to the publisher).

Objectively, it’s Novel XXXIII.

The text has been sent on to the Power What Is.  I am celebrating the completion by working on something else.  Some day I’ll take a break, but it won’t be now.

Most excellent news. Congratulations! Eagerly awaiting the announcement of the “something else” project now. :)

Huzzah! Hope whatever you pour is smooth and tasty.

Have been anxiously waiting for this. I love the series. I’ve read all of them three times over and ordered some copies for friends. Excellent news!

Looking forward to reading all the books.

Hooray (with three exclamation marks)!!!

I’ll drink to that!

Alright! I can’t wait to see this!

Too bad Q2 is already finalized; I learned a new word today for him to add to the global lexicon: snarge.

BTW, did you model Melody Chastain specifically after Miley Cyrus?

It took me a while to remember who Melody Chastain was. No, I didn’t model her after anyone in particular. Why— has Miley kicked a dog?

And wow— snarge is a great word. Unfortunate that in the Quilliferverse there aren’t any airplanes for birds to crash into. Would dragons work?

Just another episode in the ongoing MC Trainwreck. That could be her DJ name. :-)

Unfortunately, when dragons ingest birds, what comes out the other end is already named by a much more common word. However, perhaps the word could be repurposed for medieval firefighting ducks after they have been extinguished by medieval firefighting elephants.

A working definition of snarge was recently expanded “to characterise all collisions between forms of fossil-fuel-based human mobility and solar-based animal mobility. Thus, snarge is the sum total of all the dead or decaying tissue left over when plane hits bird, car hits mammal, boat hits manatee, ship hits whale, train hits cattle or elephant, and so on.” (https://aeon.co/essays/what-roadkill-says-about-the-insatiability-of-human-speed)
