The Eye of Dagon

Words today: 2700. What's that? Oh yes, that's right: 2700.
Words tota: 25,000. That's right, a quarter of a book.*


25007 / 100000 words. 25% done!

Mean things: Taking a chair to the back in a WWF homage. Scalp lacerations. Snake wine.
Deaths: One poor redshirt. The snakes were already dead.

Isyllt's only been in Assar for a day and has already had the shit beat out of her and dead snakes dropped in her lap. It's really amazing I've gotten three books out of her.

In between my 2700 words, I experimented with drinks in honor of Uncle Howard's birthday. The pictured drink is an Eye of Dagon, a Bloody Eyeball variant which turned out very nicely: gin, vermouth, lime, a jalapeno-stuffed olive, and a few drops of Hideous at the bottom. It starts off brackish and bitter and gets sweeter and spicier as you go down.

Hideous was my discovery of the night, a fabulous citrus-and-berry liqueur. I also experimented with it in a Bloody Tongue, but couldn't get it just right. More updates on that will follow.


* I suspect Kingdoms, like TBP, will be more than 100k, but I'll delude myself for now.
