I've been feeling a little bleah the last few days -- I'm not sure if it's from the change in light or from my flu shot. Chocolate and hot tea help; and in a OMG-why-isn't-this-woman-exhausted way, so does the blog of Mary Robinette Kowal.
In house news: painted the rain gutters. Now we have to re-attach them (just in time for the two inches of rain forecast for the next twenty-four hours).
In writing news: Got a form rejection last week. I need to sit down and send more stories out via USP. It would be nice to sell something.
I've been working on a Wordos experiement; it's hard -- it's a short story with a very specific outline. I suppose it's building character, and I have to work myself up to work on the story.
Last week I completed two flash fiction pieces; they're going to Wordos for critique tonight. One is grim, the other one's fluffy and kooky; we'll see which one (if any) the Wordos like.
