Not much to talk about. Hey, maybe I'll complain about all the crap I have to do...

No, I haven't written anything new. I organized my study though. It actually looks like a room now, not just a storage locker. Although, since I got rid of my futon, I need to scrounge up money to buy a loveseat. I write best when I'm all stretched out on a couch or loveseat, and I think my husband is sick of me taking over the livingroom when I have my study begging to be used. Sitting at a desk makes my back hurt. Thank the gods for handwritting and laptops. With all the things I want to get done though over the next few months, I doubt I'll be handwriting much.

Oh, I did post Ode to Buses and Libraries up on my website (just follow the link off to the right if you want to get to the website - it's under short stories). I have way too much fun writing Grinka and Syndago stories. It's good therapy. The next one will have to be with Grinka's ex-boyfriend (a goblin).

I'm off to my residency on Tuesday, so I'm not sure when I'll update next. That's what I have to prepare for. I still have critiques to do, two books to read, and now a paragraph to write for one of my modules. I'm supposed to write about my most painful childhood experience. How am I supposed to remember something like that when I've perfected the art of repression so well that my mind can't drudge anything up? I hated life all through high school, enough said. Can't use that though because we're just supposed to write the facts, not the emotions. *sigh*

I also plan to do a Book In A Week challenge with my online writing group in July. I think only two other people are interested though. It would have been cool to get more. If anyone who reads this and is a writer, if you're interested in setting a goal above what you usually write for a week (and this is only rough draft material - no revising), feel free to join the group. The link to Wisconsin Speculative Writers is also to the right. You don't have to be from Wisconsin to join. ;)

Okay, I've procrastinated at work enough I guess. Three more days in this miserable library. Then I'm free! Happy reading and writing!
