i'm going to drive to the river styx. i'm gonna take route 66.

Ding dong, the draft is dead.

That's "The Heart's Filthy Lesson," handed in at exactly the contracted length (10K: The manuscript is 10K manuscript (40 pages in manuscript format) ~9.3K MS Word.)

This old features writer still has enough column-inch damage that it feels awfully good to dial it after running 25% long on that damned book last month. *g* 

Now there's just one more June 1 deadline I should really try to hit. And, oh yeah, a cross-country flight, two ten hour drives, and a convention guest gig in the middle.

Where's my fucking Wonder Woman icon?

Oh yeah, I'll be at Up In The Aether in Detroit this weekend with my beloved Mr. Lynch! Come out and play!

Comments

Well, the one down the street from the non-interested bookstore (which is surprising) is an Adagio Tea. This is out in the western suburbs. But a quick search revealed all sorts of interesting things downtown that I wouldn't mind trying. If you're heavily scheduled, that might be a better option. When's a good time in your schedule?
Alas, never is a good time in my schedule. You'll have to talk to me closer to the date when I know if I have meal breaks.
