Today we are feverishly working on implementing final corrections to IRON AND MAGIC. This will be the second book we finished in the last six months, and it has taken a toll on my communication abilities.
Me, having carried a big pan of fried rice and teriyaki shrimp and beef to the island: Here we go.
Gordon, getting a bowl and a spoon: Awesome.
Me, realizing that I left a wooden spoon in the pan and it’s not the best serving utensil: Do you want a spoon?
Gordon, holding up his spoon: I have a spoon.
Me, struggling for several seconds to communicate the inadequacy of a slotted wooden spoon or the small spoon he is holding for scooping large quantities of rice: No, I mean a spooning spoon. To spoon the rice with.
Me: A spoon! <– because this totally explains everything.
Gordon: I think I’m okay.
There you go. I’m a bit worn out.
In other news, you will know that IRON AND MAGIC is done, because the newsletter with Curran’s twitter will go out as soon as we are finished. You should see it within 24-36 hours. 🙂
