Well, this new year, thus far, has not been the best of times. My father's been sick and mostly in bed for the last few weeks, and we've been quite worried about him at points. There has also been a severe air inversion in the valley for the last...month I suppose. The air quality was listed as "unhealthy" today, and that's as good as it's been since Christmas. I've retreated into work, reading, playing games, and listening to audiobooks, just to maintain some level of mental equilibrium. For those of you keeping track of my progress, that should be checked as a "No" in the productivity column.
I did submit "The Man in the Long Black Coat" to The First Line, and hope it does well. If not, you'll see it, in slightly modified form, on Wolf Steel. I have to start sending "At the Turning of the Age" around to the fantasy mags, too. I've hardly had the heart to even look recently. Then, of course, there's King Snake. No progress. Kelly, if you're out there, you may commence the cyber-nagging.
I don't know what's in store for me. I'll have to soldier on regardless. I'll keep you posted.
