The trouble with poets is they talk too much.

Or not enough, in this case. Thank you truepenny for this very nifty CD. Now I have to turn you on to John Gorka, I think....

Wordcount: 508
Reason for stopping: Stalled

Figured out a nice thematic thing I can do very sparely and went back and put in the pointers to it. Wrote about 450 words of Kit-POV. Flagging now, and not sure what happens next: well, I know the plot coupon that happens next, but the story that surrounds it hasn't yet quite jelled.


I'm packaging up a sub for a grant thingy, and figuring out if any of the three stories in my In basket have anywhere to go. It looks grim until Polyphony re-opens and some other markets clear. (102 days at Ideomancer. That's just bizarre.)

Otherwise, nomail.


John Gorka?

Love John Gorka.

Putting in CD right now.

And in a note of excessive sentimentality:

When I suffered a death in my family last year, I put "Love is Our Cross to Bear" on endless repeat on my cd player at a low volume for the first night after, so that when I awoke during the night I didn't feel alone.

Re: John Gorka?


"January Floor" and the rest of The Company You Keep got me through the first year after I moved out West. I still hate it here, but I'm surviving.

I don't know who John Gorka is...

...but I do know what it feels like to be stalled. However, I'm fixing that. I've written every day since Sunday (except Tuesday - too exhausted) and FINALLY have something I'm tentatively calling Chapter 1 and half of Chapter 2.

I usually do so well with beginnings...
