August 2005


I made even more changes to the nightmare story, but no one’s seen them yet. The S.O. was working on his own novel, damn him! *shakes fist* That, and I’m a little too worried about Hurricane Katrina smacking New Orleans to worry about whether my changes to a short story are any good.
Speaking of Katrina, we should be getting leftovers at some point; mostly a bunch of rain. Nothing compared to what they’re getting, of course, and it’s not like we’re under an Inland Tropical Storm warning like Tennessee.
Tennessee. I ask you.
Should we lose power, I’ll take the opportunity to write in peace and quiet and darkness until my laptop battery runs out. Woo!
I downloaded a metric ton of stuff from Escape Pod to listen to in the car. Mostly Tim Pratt and Greg van Eekhout, since I’ve enjoyed other stories of theirs. (I already downloaded Jen‘s story ages ago.)

Alien Skin just bought “The Captivity of Princess Sallya.” It’s scheduled to appear in the October/November issue.

John Scalzi is looking for SF clichés. Oh, be still my beating heart! I can’t help it, I still love spaceflight and Amazon women on the moon; I suspect anyone who read SF of a certain period at a certain age or younger can say the same. Heh.
