"The Garden needs sorting out."

The heat is back for a last gasp today. We're supposed to get to 91˚F, with a heat index of 100˚F.

Yesterday, I wrote 1,516 words on The Chartreuse Alphabet, and made it through H, I, and J. Today, I'll do K, L, and M. Then I'll be setting it aside to write a new vignette, which will appear along with the first half of The Chartreuse Alphabet in Sirenia Digest #128. It was a good work day.

I also saw the final cover design for Dear Sweet Filthy World *, and Subterranean Press began taking preorders. The release date is listed as March 2017. I don't think I've said this anywhere, but to my mind this collection is the last third of a loose sort of trilogy that began with The Ammonite Violin & Others (2009), then continued with Confessions of a Five-Chambered Heart (2012). The love letters. Something like that. Anyway, yes, it will sell out long before publication, so reserve your copy now.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions. Comics! The Dreaming! Alabaster! Thank you!

Last night, we went to the Cable Car and saw Andrew Dominik's One More Time With Feeling, the film that's been made as an accompaniment to the new Nick Cave album, Skeleton Tree (out today). After the writing yesterday, my mood took a nosedive. I don't know why, but it led to me almost staying home and sending Spooky to the cinema alone. I'm glad I didn't. The film is beautiful and brilliant, and I would have deeply regretted not seeing it on a big screen.

And now, it's time to make the doughnuts.

* This collection, like my blog, takes its title from Elvis Costello's song of the same name, which can be found on The Juliet Letters (1993).

This happens to me all the time and I do usually end up staying home. Glad you went out anyway!

Everyone talks about it, nobody does anything about it.
Mood is like the weather. I used to plan my activity around the weather. Problem was, I would eventually, stop doing anything due to the bad weather. Since I could never cut it as a hermit, I became a postman in my activities. Reality is a tyrant, either you spit in it's face, or it kills you.
