Midnight somewhere in the world

My very short ghost story, The Passenger, is up in Midnight Echo issue 3. The issue is flat out cool with an awesomely done comic and a couple of Stoker winners headlining the ToC.

My NaNo progress was slow yesterday, I was sidelined with two Dr. appointments (One chiropractor, one regular Dr.) and grocery getting. I had to conclude my Dr. visits this morning (I hope they are done anyway) getting some tests. Nothing major, just making sure my family medical history isn't going to haunt me anytime soon. That and it has felt like I have been standing in a pool of water up to my neck when I breathe for the last couple of weeks. I hope I have a case of asthma or something like that.

Anyway, I had better get to writing. I was pretty well caught up when I woke up yesterday morning and now I appear to be behind again on my NaNo book.

Words: 27,069 goal by the end of today: 30,000 (you can laugh now, I am)

Still an awesome word count

Jeremy- I am actually surprised at my word count but Danielle's is better. Much better than mine. I am sure her story is better as well.

Aaron Polson said...

Wow, Jamie. The story hit me in the gut. What delightful cover art, too.

Yikes.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Thanks, Aaron. They have done some incredible things with that mag. I love the comic book section.

I hope your tests and dr. appointments went okay. I hate having to do that stuff myself.

I suspect that doing nano is almost as good as a month-long workout. Of your fingers, anyway. :)

K.C.- Something tells me I have to type a lot faster to get my heart rate going. Now, the stories themselves, that is a different matter. ;)

ME3 downloaded and sitting in my electronic 'to-read' pile (how sad is that? I have a real and an electronic pile to get through!)

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Your NaNo count is very kewl. Keep going buddy - home stretch now and time for the wet sail.

Hey, you're doing great!! That's NOTHING to laugh at.

Jamie Eyberg said...

BT- I know the feeling, I am very far behind on my e-reading pile. Very far.

Alexis- :)

Hope you're doing okay.

Congrats on Midnight Echo, I can't wait to read it.

And well done on the word count - don't be so sure mine is better than yours (I alternate between liking it and wanting to burn it).

Congratulations on the publication. Awesome cover.
