  • Finally

    Finally

    After three months, I can finally admit someone’s publishing me. That’s the next thing crossed off the list. Tomorrow, we make a new goal.

  • The Universal

    The Universal

    This is not the most important announcement this month. SOON [TM]

  • Turn the Page

    Turn the Page

    Came quite close to passing out at the Gym last night. As of yet, I dunno if this is the indicator of anything more serious, but my blood work two weeks ago was nigh-on perfect, so /shrug. If I’m still here on Monday, I’ll go see someone. 72 hours is the time limit I was […]

  • Hot Hot Hot

    Hot Hot Hot

    My optimal operating temperature’s about 18 degrees Celsius. The last few days, therefore, have been beyond grim. I came to the conclusion this afternoon that I was probably dehydrated, and no training today was a good call. So, I’m behind again. What can I say. There’s been no actual progress since we spoke last anyway. […]

  • Blowing in the Wind

    Blowing in the Wind

    I didn’t realize this was physical. The assumption was it would be virtual, and suddenly I’m even more pleased that out of 700 subs, summat managed to land. Also, all of these were read blind.

  • Days Like These

    Days Like These

    This was my only success last month. However, it keeps up the streak of publication from late last year. We already have July sorted. /looks at August with growing suspicion…

  • Don’t Tell Me

    Don’t Tell Me

    This will be a priority over the weekend, I think…

  • The End is the Beginning is the End

    The End is the Beginning is the End

    The smart amongst you will know this was written after the fact, when I was home, because there was simply not the brain space that existed to properly process at the time. If truth be told, there is still not the space to do that. I’m continuing to break it down and manage the changes […]

  • You and Me Song

    You and Me Song

    I have to admit there was an ulterior motive, making the 600 miles or so round trip with my husband (very graciously) doing all the driving. It was all about walking into a place I’d only seen in pictures and never visited. It was also having to make myself known to people that had only […]
