criminal minds reid airquotes

me, you, and your deathwish

five things make a post:

1) A little bird told me that Last Man Anthology ( http://is.gd/bzFpI ) a semipro anth, is looking for more stories by women.

2) Turned in two book reports in the last 24 hours. Go team me.

3) Also wrote a little over 2500 words of "Spell 81a" which is pretty much as complete as I can make it (at least as a bad draft goes) until stillsostrange has some time to work on it. I am therefor declaring this a draft, despite the fact that one scene of footwork and one climactic space battle still need to be done, but that's just typing. And typing is the easy part.

4) Going to take the dog for his evening perambulation here in a minute. Yay us!

5) This means an updated honeydew, especially since I am going to Be Somewhere both Friday the 30th and May 8th, which is to say on the former day I will be on a panel at the Massachusetts Library Conference in Hyannis, and on the latter I will be giving a talk about writing science fiction and fantasy at the 7th annual Connecticut Authors And Publishers Association Writer's Conference in Hartford.

It looks like a fabulous conference--they keynote speech is by Dr. Henry Lee and Dr. Jerry Labriola, so I imagine it will be full of chewy forensicness.

And now I'm going to take the dog for a walk and then eat a salad.
