Re. the Write-a-Thon:

This is probably a good time to say that I'm very grateful for all the donations I've received so far. I haven't been displaying the names of the donors because some people really don't like that sort of thing, but Clarion has listed all the donors in alphabetical order on its website (it's even got me on there, for some reason, though I haven't donated yet; I do plan to pledge at least one of the other writers, but I haven't got around to it. Maybe Clarion is psychic. Hmm). My pledges have ranged from $1 to $104.27, and they have all been appreciated. I would thank you personally if I could, but Clarion gives out names only, not contact information. (The $104.27 donation was accompanied by a demand that I get back to work. Yessir...right away.) I do believe in encouraging writers to produce more good fantasy and science fiction. It can be done, people.

I am stalling on the synopsis. I've got one, but it's too long for many publishers. At the same time, I really don't know how much more information I can cut while still retaining basic coherence. Somebody make my story less twisty, please.

Panel 1: Marie lies on her stomach on her couch, talking to her action figure of the Eleventh Doctor.

Marie: I'm telling you, tiny model of the Eleventh Doctor: there's no way out of this one.

Panel 2:

Marie: I have to make a choice, but both options are wrong. You've been in similarly impossible positions before. What would you do?

Panel 3:

Marie: You would wait until the beginning of the next episode, then be saved by a huge coincidence.

Panel 4: The action figure is lying on its side. Marie has turned over onto her back and is talking to her book.

Marie: I'm telling you, exciting novel about pubescent wizards: there's no way out of this one.

Alt-Text: Admittedly, the Doctor is really not the best person to ask for advice about anything at all.
