I slept most of yesterday, which I needed desperately. Still need. Next year, taking the Tuesday after Arisia off is mandatory. Because I *still* don't feel caught up.

Daily Science
Differences in the number and speed of cometary impacts onto Jupiter's large moons Ganymede and Callisto some 3.8 billion years ago can explain their vastly different surfaces and interior states, according to research by scientists at the Southwest Research Institute appearing online in Nature Geoscience Jan. 24, 2010.

Work. It's a peer supe meeting day, but the meeting's at the Boston office, which is accessible by bus from Watertown - so it makes just as much sense to come home and work here as to kill time out in the city. So home, fleshing out "Maxfield Parrish Blues" - which has to happen today if I'm to stay on track for four stories in four weeks (I got nothing done last week, but two stories the week before, so I'm not off yet!). Also this gives me the chance to nap or clean up around the house, whichever I decide I need more. Tonight's that meeting; depending on the bus schedule, we may or may not meet re: the BARCC blog afterward.

Oh, I know. I am merely amused by the title.

I don't know if you read John Scalzi, but he just put up something that made me think you'd want to know about it.

There’s an online initiative called 100 Stories for Haiti, in which writer Greg McQueen is hoping to very quickly gather up that number of short short stories (1,000 words or less) and put them together in a flash e-book anthology, all of the proceeds of which will go to the Red Cross for assistance in Haiti. My pal, bestselling author Nick Harkaway (The Gone-Away World), is penning a story and an intro. This is an all-volunteer effort (i.e., no one’s getting paid for the work), but it’s a good cause, so that’s worth a one-time pass from me. If you’re interested in contributing a story, they’d be interested in seeing what you have.

That said, there is a catch: The deadline is hella close — as in, today. BUT, McQueen, hoping to harness the awesome might of Whatever, sends along this note:

Please feel free to say that if someone puts SUBMISSION JOHN S in the subject line of their submission, we’ll accept them as late as Wed/Thursday this week.

So there, I scored you an extension. Because I love you, man. So if you’ve got the urge to write something short and to help out Haiti, now you know where to send your stuff.

I know you write a lot, and thought you might want to contribute.

Meep. I have not just no time, but negative time!

Something like this is in the works, though. Just can't talk about it yet.
