I'm in a spin about what sorts of craft to make for the holidays. I'm under the impression (from Mark) that the paper cutouts, while neat, are essentially holiday clutter that the recipients don't know what to do with. I suppose I could do wood things... but that just shifts paper clutter to plywood clutter. I thought about making little plastic toys, which might go over well, but that means I need to get cracking and design something to put together in about three weeks.
On the writing front... Oh yeah; writing. Stories have been rejected, so I need to get them back in the submission piles. I'm currently working on a short list-story that's probably more therapeutic than anything. The trick will be making the list have some narrative tension.
