Happy birthday to passionandsoul!

State of the 'Song
Crispy-fried. Yes, it's a sign of me being unwell when I don't post for days on end...

Fortunately, I am physically okay, except for the perpetual exhaustion. I am just burned out to a wee tiny crisp. I'm not usually like this post-Thanksgiving; this year, it's the combination of heavy housecleaning the week before Thanksgiving, an arduous drive back and forth to a con where I started out unwell and got worse, more frantic house stuff when we got back, house concert, an insufficient recovery day, and then all of the everything of Thanksgiving and the following weekend. It was past all my limits, and I've been spending a lot of time unable to get my ass in gear and do stuff - except yesterday, when I had stuff to do and motivation, but a house full of people all loudly doing other things, so desire but not ability. Which was not awesome.

I love my people, but I am very happy that Elayna's in school, Adam's at work, sindrian's milling out parts for the Kikori he will finally get to build here in town, and omnisti is sound asleep and will be for a while.

Hi.

More about that poem.
Yep, this one.

It's been nominated for the Pushcart Prize. And you're not supposed to publicize your work as nominated or recommended for the Tiptree award, since anything can get nominated, but what I will say is that Google Alerts showed me this page.

So I spent part of yesterday wandering around saying "You guys, I did not know these were things that could happen."

More about writing.
I have a bunch of Thoughts on why and how I write that there'll be a bigger post on when I can find the best way to present them. But basically I'm giving myself permission to do some things. And it feels awesome.

Woo!
Flogging Molly tour dates are up!

Plans
Breakfast, shower, writing; today I intend to write something very specific, which is due on Wednesday. Wish me luck. If I have time after, I have more to write, and a ton of Arisia lit track stuff to go through, and a bunch of other stuff in my inbox that I've been shamefully neglecting. That selfsame overclockedness. I need to jump-start my cope. Tonight I have BARCC Peer Supe. *nod*

Another thank you for the link to the article on synasthesia.

That selfsame overclockedness.

Oooh, like that use of the term. Goes so well with spoonlessness, doesn't it? *very wry* (I also overdid last week; have been collapsed from Friday on. *sigh*)

Eeeeeeeee! Nominations! So richly deserved, yes yes :) It would be so amazing if Changeling wins the Tiptree. It should, really. It should win everything.

I blush and hide my face at you even saying that! :)
