Move Complete

After three days of driving, one night in Sacramento where Pixel decided that walking through walls sounded cool and got himself stuck behind some plumbing in a little access cubby under the sink, and one lovely night at Tina's in Portland, we made it safely to Birch Bay and are getting settled in our new house. My furniture is arriving in a few minutes on the moving truck. So, I will get that all set up tonight--and then off to WisCon in the morning. I'm a little too tired and braindead right now to write a long post. More later, with pictures.

Subs Away!

I'm back up to a whopping two stories trudging through slush.

The new story features a trans-dimensional pet door. I had the story critted by a handful of trusty critters last week and revised accordingly. I'd hoped to trim things down by a few hundred words, but in the process of clarifying things that were a bit muddled in the first draft, I ended up adding more words than I cut, so it ended up being about 3500 words.

Now that that's done, I do actually have to start and finish packing now. Between moving and WisCon, it'll be a couple weeks before I get settled in enough to do any more writing. I'm hoping to get a batch of revisions out the door in June though.

Crazycool flying dudes

I would so do this... If I weren't, you know, attached to my life and scared of heights and other niggling details like that.

(P.S. As you can see, I'm busy packing and revising. Very busy.)

Beta Draft

I finally got another story "finished." Finished enough anyway that I've sent it out to some trusty eyeballs who can tell me how unfinished it actually is. So I'm happy about that. I hope to move it up to a wider-release version next week and finally boot it off my works-in-progress list. That will be a relief. Then I can move on to some of the other stories that have been moldering on there.

Or I could start packing up the apartment... Nah, even revising is better than packing. And we all know how I hate revisions.
