I’ve been drowning in snot and work. The weather changed here for a couple of days and almost everyone I know is fighting off some degree of a cold.
That’s why I’m just now getting around to mentioning that I recently interviewed Jeanne Stein for Fang, Fur & Fey. Jeanne is a real sweetheart, and very funny. You should read her books. A big public THANK YOU to carriejones for posting the interview for me while I was at work, where LJ is blocked. Grrrr.
I have not touched The Girls Nobody Wanted to Date since hitting that 10,000 word mark. I’ve been grading student papers, and I’m about to get buried in 32 3,000-word short stories on Monday. Well, theoretically, anyway. Of course, some people will decide it’s okay to fail the course and won’t do the work, but still …
Last night I wrote the first of two new pieces that will go into the lettered edition of Little Graveyard on the Prairie. I just meant to get it started, but ended up writing the whole thing, a little over 1,500 words. I plan to knock off the other one, another short story, this weekend, too. Did I already mention that I got the artwork for the book? I did. The lettering isn’t done on the cover, so I’m not going to post it yet.
