Cloudy and warmer today. Currently, it's 83˚F.

Yesterday was a strange sort of work day. I dusted off this manuscript from the summer of 2007, over thirteen thousand words – and then I just gave up and walked away. Kathryn read it aloud to me, and it's really pretty good. I'm not at all sure why I abandoned it. But now I'm finishing it, to be the novella that concludes Mythos Tales. It's an odd feeling, setting out to finish something left incomplete for nine years. Really, it only needs maybe four or five thousand words to reach The End, not much more than that. And it needs a title. So, yeah. We read it, then I worked on line edits. To stay on schedule, I need to be done with this before the end of September. I'd like to be done with it by Friday, September 23rd.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions.

TTFN,
Aunt Beast

Ah, the redolence of abandoned memory reclaimed...

That's really cool. Let me know if I can do anything useful, either as beta-reader or proofreader or otherwise.

If not today, why not?
I remember you abandon a story because you covered that ground already. Hmm... In one of Stephen King's recent short story collects, He wrote a story about a woman who separates from her husband because he not up to her personal standards. He weak. She goes to the Florida keys, to find self. While walking, she see ugly evil house, and then she see a man put a woman in a trunk of his car. This protagonist tries to help, but get captured and bound to a chair in the Kitchen. By using her superior mind control, she escapes the chair, and out runs the evil tech millionaire (She may have killed the bad guy, I don't really care). Great story (No!), except it's a cut down version of "Salam's Lot."
Your personal standards are set kind of high, when it concerns you're own work.
