Happy birthday to jenphalian and transfiguration!

Hello to new readers badgerthorazine and vincent_nucaso!

The knee is working today. I have sciatica-like pain going up the front of my thigh, which lends credence to the pereonal-nerve-compression theory. My legs are stiff from being immobilized to much of last night. Also, I have a code. Meh. I did sleep well.

My birthday! Is one week! From today!


Wishlists are linked on my sidebar, but what I like most is Stuff You Made (writers, that includes your books). :)

I will be 35. I have been looking forward to once again being divisible by 7.

Ravens in the Library
Is at the printer. I may have a copy for my birthday. I am both excited and antsy. My story is a very emotionally naked one. I mean, stories ought to be; otherwise you're just spackling phrase over phrase with no real purpose or meaning, and that's not my kink. Just - this one is really naked.

This is a great post about it. Forward far and wide!

Another benefit anthology
Via Azhure: "Hope is a new multi-part fanzine raising money for bushfire relief in the Australian state of Victoria. It is edited by me, Grant Watson, with contributions donated by writers, artists and fans in Australia and from overseas. It is supported by the Western Australian Science Fiction Foundation (WASFF), and has received assistance from the Film & Television Institute of WA, Supanova and Big Finish Productions.

Issue #1 is now available in a PDF edition in return for donations. How much you donate is up to you - I personally think a minimum of AUS$5.00 is reasonable.

If you wish to subscribe to the entire series (I suspect at this stage it’s five issues long, not four as I’d previously told some people), then I’d recommend a donation of at least AUS$20.00."

Was extremely productive. Elayna and I got errands and silly kid/mom time in on Friday, Adam and I got serious cleaning and organization done on Saturday, and, well - my editor was able to reschedule my Q&A at Grub Street for next Sunday.

Daily Science
Knitting 'can delay' memory loss:
Engaging in a hobby like reading a book, making a patchwork quilt or even playing computer games can delay the onset of dementia, a US study suggests.

Via a friend with fibro who's been helped immensely by knitting. Okay, I give in - I should learn to knit!

Wow. This is my first moment of solitude in a week and a half. I kinda don't know what to do with myself. Okay. Must submit stories, and must write. *nod*
