For some reason, I woke up early today. I had this dream that I was at Confluence, and everyone was gathered in one big room. We were all going around introducing ourselves, and I told everyone that they could punch me if I didn't finish my novel by next year. Jeez, unconscious, I get the message.

That's the easy part. Finding an agent and publishing the thing... well, that's another matter.

I think it was from some Indian food I had the other night, and I had to laugh. I think the spiciness caught her off-guard.
