I have to make this fast, because we overslept, and I woke to an Alabaster-related crisis.

The first day of February. Already.

It's marginally warmer here. It's 41˚F and feels like 44˚F. Last night, we were able to sleep without a fire, first time in a long time. But we have 3-6" of snow forecast for Tuesday night. Fuck you, Winter.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,053 words on this story that has no title*, and I found THE END. On Thursday, I wrote 904 words on the story. Today, I'll pull Sirenia Digest #96 together and get it out to subscribers.

I have five works on the 2013 Locus Recommended Reading List, in four categories: Blood Oranges (novel), Black Helicopters (novella), The Ape's Wife and Other Stories (collection), and "The Road of Needles" and "The Prayer of Ninety Cats" (short story).

Oh, and here's a gem, from a very recent Amazon "review" of The Ape's Wife and Other Stories:

"The constant manifestation of the author's lesbian orientation can be a bit tedious."

And I guarantee this "reviewer" has no idea they're a homophobe.


I can only resolve that February will not be a repeat of January.

    A sunny, bright day, and it was a little warmer. Currently, it's 76˚F (heat index 77˚F). And it looks like that was our high. But I slept very late…

  • Purgatorio

    Yeah, so...mostly cloudy yesterday and a rainy night. Our high was a measly 73˚F, and the heat index only got up to 74˚F. And because I can be kind…

  • The Galumphing of the Sith

    Cloudy and not quite as warm today. We made it to 79˚F. There's a chance of severe thunderstorms tonight. I was unable to write due to the extra CBD…
