  • I am now at a bookstore, drinking a mocha, and not leaving until I have a completed draft of a short story. See you in a month. #
  • I'm not sure how, but I have an errant editor-knight on my hands. She swore to return to publish her sec'ys chick-lit, however. #
  • Reading Anathem during breaks, on the Nook. I have a hardcover; the N. is lighter. I look forward to 1000-page ebooks, a new niche. #
  • The new story makes me snigger. But no title. Gah! #
  • The Whispering Tree done: “It’s all just a game of Satan says to me.” #
  • I got tired of waiting for rejections, so I sent another one to Clarkesworld; they'll reject me right away. #
  • If you won't grab me in the first line, when will you grab me? #easyreader #
  • Despite several titillating panegyrics to the contrary, I am now SICK of reading Bradbury short stories. #
  • Another lesson learned: write new fiction every day, or you'll get depressed. Guh. #

  • C4 Xanadu: "She was used to boys being mean to her; it wasn’t like she was a kindergartener any more." #
  • Wondering if I should ping the people who are looking at Ray's book 1 when book 2 is done. #
  • A good formula is liberating. Book 2 is going well. #
  • OUCH! RT@jasummerell …if you don't have [coffee] yet you do things like type the words, "starts the beginning" in your FB status. #
  • Juicer or cider press? #
