ISBN joy.


I got my ISBNs!

I generated a barcode!

I feel... all official and stuff.

Slept a little late this morning. I woke up six or seven times last night freezing cold and drenched in sweat, though I don't remember my dreams. Woke with a splitting headache when the alarm went off, got up and had some food so I could take some advil and crawl back into bed with an ice pack on my eyes. Woke two hours later feeling much better. The headache's not gone, but it's managable, at least. And getting the ISBNs was rather exciting and happy.

And, I got all the orders out that I could last night, and finished EMG pay, plus the late INATS cash and carry.

Gaming was fun. :)

My muse is in hibernation, no surprise. I've tried to draw and write a dozen times since Monday - and nothing works. I've written maybe 250 words. Sketched some pathetic doodles. Worked on an Aurthurian piece, but when I went to erase a mutant eyebrow, there was some smudge of EVIL on my eraser, and now it's all marked to hell. I tried to cover it with a forehead necklace thingy, but it just looks horrid. RATS! I wasn't real happy with the piece, so no loss there, but it kills me that I was working on that expensive new paper.

Okay, darn it, just a few more tweaks on these files, and it's time to sit down on the couch with a red pen and do a full markup. Again. I really want this to look GOOD.

Ow, my head.

You need a break, Ellen. I know that's probably not very useful to tell you, and it's probably not very likely you'll take one, but boy, even if you could pull a 3 day weekend and unwind, I think it'd be good for you.

The book looks *gorgeous*. *hugs you*!

*hugs da Ellen*

How -do- you figured out how to make the Barcode? o.O

All I had to do was put the ISBN in and figure out what to do with the file they spit back at me.

I always get headaches from too much excitement, even if it's the good kind! Hope you feel better....weren't you trying to get away to a spa?

How can I buy the book if I don't have paypal or a creditcard? :(

Freezing cold and drenched in sweat? Sounds like a fever...Did you check your temperature? :\

Nifty barcode, it does make the book look official! :)
