I am at the stage of being sick where my mind is once again clear, and my stuffiness is mostly gone, but I am short of breath with a hacking cough and can barely walk across the room.
The impatient stage, basically. The stage where I really feel like I ought to be able to do more than I am currently able to do.
So I am doing sedentary things. Yesterday I wrote the essays I'd owed my BARCC colleague for his book about rape survivors. That... was hard. There's a reason I put it off. But I'm glad it's no longer looming large on my to-do list.
I'd like to get writing done today, but poor Elayna is home sick! So we'll see.
Oh yeah, 2012's publications:
* "Mushroom Barley Soup: An Invocation
", in Stone Telling #8
", in Through the Gate #1
* "The Oracle Never Dances", in Mythic Delirium #27
* "Ereshkigal's Proposal to Hades", in Mythic Delirium #27
* "Splinter" in Apex Magazine #42
If you are of a nominating sort, "Mushroom Barley Soup" is considered a Long Poem and "nameless", "The Oracle Never Dances", and "Ereshkigal's Proposal to Hades" are all considered Short Poems as far as Rhyslings go. "Splinter" is eligible for all the stuff short stories are eligible for. No pressure, but if you were wondering, there you go.
I am really looking forward to the stuff I have coming out in 2013. I think I leveled up, y'all. Let's see if you agree.
But for now, shower! And work if I can!
