According to Fedex, my laptop landed in Hapeville, Georgia this morning at 6:28AM. Since it’s in the state, it ought to arrive at my doorstop today, doncha think? *twitch* Yes, I’m obsessing.
[edit: Ooo! It made it to Alpharetta at 8:12AM! Now how long will it take to travel from the local Fedex facility to my doorstop? Ooo!]
Nathan, my Scrybe Press editor, asked for synopses for “Inspirations End/Still My Beating Heart.” No biggie, except for some reason, I was having a hard time coming up with something that didn’t sound entirely trite. Not sure why. Could it be because both stories are in first person? But I can’t figure for the life of me why that would make a difference. I did assemble sentences. Will go over them this morning to see if they actually sound as terrible as I thought they did last night. Hope to get something respectable together before noon.
Started on my Tangent review of this week’s Strange Horizons story. I also need to do a Critters critique. I haven’t done one in a couple weeks.
The SFWA Nebula and election ballots came in the mail. More voting. Whee. The election one is pretty much a no-brainer, but I’ll need to do more reading before I feel qualified to cast my vote for the Nebulas.
The new Chinese folktale story is done! Actually, I’m not happy with the final paragraph; I might add another sentence or two on it to round things out better, but for all intents and purposes, I’m at “the end.” Rah. Going to do another couple passes on it, then foist it on Matthew.
