Doh!

I can't believe that I forgot that I had a short story published in Sand last month, plus I received a beautiful book called 52 Stitches. Yesterday my story Beneath the Willows was released at Bards and Sages.

So, yesterday I managed another 1500 words in my scoiry (to borrow a word from Carrie) story. I don't know how long this is going to end up. Something tells me far longer than will be usable in any short story market. I might surprise myself and pull it in under 7500 words. I don't know yet. I've got a few ideas where I could take it, I just don't know yet.

Last night, in one of the worst nights of my life, my boy (who my wife thinks is getting sick) didn't let me go to bed until 5. I think I am running on about an hour of sleep and I haven't had any coffee yet, mostly because I keep forgetting about it. Because of this I don't know if I will attempt any writing (my typing is seriously lagging and I am giving my delete button a real workout right now). I might try and find something on the History Channel and call it a day. At least until I have to go watch the homecoming parade that my daughter will be walking in.

Have a great weekend. A great, rest-filled, weekend.

Samantha- something tells me that will happen tomorrow.

Aaron- September was a pretty good month for me. I can't complain.

I think you need to zombie out for the day.

If you forgot to drink coffee then you haven't been making it strong enough ; )

I brew it so it's just short of seizure inducing!

Cate- and tv stinks today. Although there is a Twilight Zone marathon on.

Nat- I am considering just grabbing a spoon and chewing on the grounds.

The situation is dire when you forget you are in need of coffee.

You can HAVE that word. I don't want it back. ;)

I missed this post Friday--I hope you were able to catch up on your sleep this weekend (and I hope your boy is feeling better).
