Questions, Questions...

So there's lots of memes going around, with people asking questions on seven topics or trading questions or interviewing and reciprocating... Forget all that. This is the simple version:

Ask me any questions you want.

I'm generally open to questions, but this provides you with a convenient opportunity to submit them. I think it's a good way to get to know your virtual friends better. Any topic is allowed. Replies (i.e. questions) left here will be hidden.

I'll post the questions, who they're from, and my replies as future entries. If you don't want to be identified, that's fine, but please say so when you submit your questions. I'll answer all reasonable questions, though my reply posts may be screened (friend-locked to different filters) depending on the subject matter.

That's it. Have fun and thanks for the questions.

[Edit: Figured out my question on comment screening. Everything's good.]

This is a reply to questions posted in my ask me anything entry.

what's up?!

The wordcount on my manuscript. I've been trying to do a little writing each evening so that the draft of my novel might, eventually, be finished. I'm up to 95K words. I'm pretty much on the final chapters; need to add some interstitials and add some missing sections. The first draft will likely weigh in at around 115K words. Then... editing.

As for right now? I'm at work. I deal with the infrastructure and libraries of a very large software project, so doing rebuilds of even one subsystem (as I have been today) takes a while. This allows for a bit of LJ updating, as I'm doing now.

Answers from the open questions post.

Would you like fries with that?

Have you ever punched a baby?

How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tuna casserole?

1. Usually. Particularly curly fries or steak fries (US) / chips (UK).

2. Nope. That's why I was expelled from the Pacific Baby Bashing League.

3. Do I look like Professor Owl? Depends entirely on the size of the casserole dish, I'd say.
