I’m happy to announce that my story Frost Patterns will be live at Fiction 365 on Saturday, January 5. As you can guess, with a title like that it’s very seasonally appropriate for us in the northern hemisphere.
In other news, I’m doing well with Write 1/Sub 1. I’m more than halfway finished with a new short story (putting me ahead of the game, since it officially doesn’t begin until NEXT week–the first full week of 2013), and have in mind a specific market for it, requiring a fast submission. Without W1S1, I doubt I’d have pushed myself to go for this. If you’re on the fence, then, all I can say is that for me, W1S1 works.
My desk is up against a wall with a window that overlooks the Rocky River valley below. It’s very peaceful, and pleasant, etc., etc., but there is a drawback that I’m now discovering: the window/wall joins in this old building aren’t exactly well-insulated, and a cold draft flows over my desk, and my keyboard, before falling to my feet. It’s cold! Hubby (who’s working from home here in Ohio this week yet) and I pass a small space heater back and forth between us, chasing off the chill. (Type faster! Don’t let the fingers ice up or we’re done for!) Ah, the joys of winter.
