No Net

I’m happy to report that “Futures”, a feature of Nature magazine, has agreed to publish my short story “Picasso’s Cats.” It’s a fun little piece that I wrote one night at the Writer’s of the Future workshop. Much fun. # The collaboration with John is coming along. It currently stands at about 6K words, and […]

Nano Problems

Brigid got me an iPod Nano for Father’s Day, meaning that I’ve slowly been pulled into something closer to the modern age. I’m a real Renaissance Man. Of course, I rn into problems with it last week. It … er … died–as in the screen went blank and I couldn’t get it to operate. Three […]

Half the Way There

I apologize to you few who are out there reading, but I just didn’t get time to improve on my weak-bottomed entry yesterday. Sorry. Not that today’s will be much better. [grin] I’m working heavily on the Bodin collaboration right now. John’s done a bunch of work getting it to a spot, and now I’m […]

Finding It

Perhaps I should re-title my last entry. Just for completeness sake, that entry was titled “Unlucky Number 11.” It was about a story I’m re-writing. In the entry, I recounted its essence of bloat and otherwise basically ponderous nature. In it, I also mentioned that I liked the story, and that it was all there. […]

Not-So-Lucky Number 11

I’ve come to the eleventh of the twelve stories I thought were worth salvaging. I read it for the first time last Friday. It is a little scary, actually; 8,000 words–lots and lots of exposition. My descriptions are thick and stultifying. Reading it is like trying to breathe in an August swamp. The fact that […]

Market Day

Today was Market Day, meaning that I set aside serious time to look at markets, and did my best to match them with two stories I think are ready for release. I always look upon these days with a great sense of hope and expectation. Yes, I am an optimist. You may humor me now. […]
