So I only seem to manage to drop in here when I have something to announce, which makes this more like a mailing list update than a blog. Oh well. I have accepted that I'm not a blogger. Can't force the issue at this point, especially when the rest of life is still chaotic.

To recap the past three months: tendonitis of the thumbs; unexpectedly required to move; the stress of finding a place, packing, moving, unpacking; unexpected layoffs at work; rounds of repairs needed at new place (still not done); and I have lost the ability to can. For a while.

But in the meantime, some good things did happen:

1 - My short story "Turning", from The Monster Book for Girls, made the long list of Honourable Mentions for Ellen Datlow's Best Horror of the Year volume 5 anthology.

2 - I sold a story, "Come Away to the Water", to Crossed Genres' Fierce Family anthology.

3 - There's a wonderful review of MENIAL: Skilled Labor in Science Fiction (the anthology from Crossed Genres that I co-edited) at Strange Horizons.

4 - Today I found out I won a skein of yarn and a sock pattern in an online contest. Yay for free yarn.

Until next time something writing-related and note-worthy happens...
