Benzodiazepines and

Got a nice shiny prescription for clonazepam, which is a honker of a muscle relaxant. It’s a benzodiazepine so it’s got some pretty swoofy tranquilizing effects too. I’m on a single .5mg/day dose that I take at bedtime, so most of the woozy side effects are mitigated by me being asleep.

Still hurting, but much better.

Ground my teeth in pain last night and finished off the story I was working on. Managed to crank out another 2K words. And it’s done! Not counting days I was forced not to write because of my TOS, I wrote a 7.5K story in three days. Neat! Speed writing. I can dig it. Tossing it up to Critters with an MPC next week. I like it. Hope readers do too.

And for the exciting news of the hour: Hitting the Skids in Pixeltown, the anthology edited by Orson Scott Card with my winning story in it, “All in My Mind,” is up for pre-order at

    Congrats on the new story! Congrats especially on being satisfied with the first draft.

    You might not want to part with an MPC just now. The “triple week” is coming up soon, and you might be able to slide your story into it.

    I’m very glad you’re feeling better!

      Thanks! Yah, I’m eying that triple week of Andrew’s, trying to figure out how to get the most bang with my MPC bucks. I already had a story waiting in the queue to go in after “Fortune” cleared. It’s in the 3-week list right now towards the bottom. I’m trying to calculate if it’ll get lopped off, as sometimes happens when Andrew’s readying up the next batch, or if it’ll make it into the 3-week.

      So I’m thinking I can bump this new story into next week’s queue and have the other story in the 3-weeker after that. Um.

      It really shouldn’t be this complicated . . .
