Addendum: dead air

Some days I just want to put the iBook away and never write another word as long as I live. This afternoon is like that, as was yesterday afternoon, and, now that I think about it, all of last week.

Do you know much about astrology? I really think there is something going on lately and I don't really buy into it but just the same...
I do know we recently had a full moon.

You've noticed that too? I could have sworn Mercury was retrograde again, but I believe that's over now. Yet, communication (and words coming when they should) is completely on the fritz.

Yeah, things have been crazy! I was asking because I have never studied astrology and, aside from knowing I'm a gemini, am rather clueless.

Is it because the words just won't come, the words come but not how you want them, or because you're frustrated with everything else? If it's the last, I'd be glad to initiate you into the Cult of the Carnivorous Plant: I have a Nepenthes pitcher plant that really needs a good home, and Atlanta is a wonderful place for carnivores...

So draw instead. I thought the cover to the chapbook was incredible.

That would certainly be a shame. I just finished Sirenia #1 and "Madonna Littoralis" is one of the finest things I think you've written. It brought me back to my days when I first read Tales of Pain and Wonder. I think that story would have fit in beautifuly there. You're style has grown and matured over the years, and your novels show that metamorphosis wonderfully, but your short fiction is always breathtaking, most likely because it's such an instant gratification. When I first got the issue I thought I'd like the second story better for some reason, and while I do love the second tale, "Madonna Littoralis" just made my head spin in a beautiful dizzying blur.

Thank you.

Souns like it was going around. I got in a grand total of 137 words for the week.
For me, that's usually the work of a few minutes.
meh.
