I'm BAAAAAACCCK! I'm typing with all ten digits, nearly over a nasty cold and back to reading and writing. I'm looking forward to seeing "Jolaneering" at Nanobison this month. No date has been given. I'm also crossing my fingers regarding a short-listed reprint at another ezine. Meanwhile, I've accepted a "Revision in a Week" challenge at OWWW (Other Worlds Writing Workshop). I have two stories that have languished since September, when I wrote them in a "Short Story in a Week" challenge at the same online workshop. I also look forward to finishing that story I woke up with and catching up on my reading.
I just finished Madeleine L'Engle's A Circle of Quiet. What an incredible book. I highly recommend it. It's spiritual odyssey, philosophy, social commentary, autobiographical and does, occasionally, touch on the business of writing (at least as it fits into our lives or shapes it).
