Today in intend to "finish" Cherry Bomb. The scare quotes are there because it's going to be a rough manuscript, and it's going to need a good polishing. That will happen next week, after I get Sirenia Digest #98 (March) out to subscribers. But, I mean to send a complete ms. to my editor tomorrow afternoon.
In the future, years from now, if I am asked why I spent almost three years writing these three novels (four, with Fay Grimmer), I'll have no response better than "It seemed like a good idea at the time." It's a weak defense.
When everyday's like a war between the will to go on
And a wish that the world would spiral into the sun,
Turn your head toward the storm that's surely coming along. ~ Brown Bird
I keep forgetting to post this link. At the Tachyon Press website, an excerpt from "Love is Forbidden, We Croak and Howl," my contribution to Ellen Datlow's Lovecraft's Monsters. Have a look.
Wish me luck, kittens.
