Yesterday, I had the rather nasty realization that I have only three weeks remaining to get all the editing and rewrites done on Daughter of Hounds in order to meet my May 15th deadline. And I haven't even begun. Between the digest and the trouble with the cover copy and proofreading Alabaster and getting the "Highway 97" chapbook done, I've let three weeks slip past. Half that time I had to get this thing done. The next three weeks are going to be brutal, especially given that I need to get the next issue of the digest written and out in that same period of time.
Last night, we watched Hubert Sauper's Darwin's Nightmare (2004) on Sundance, which documents the devastation of Lake Tanzania following the introduction of a single exotic species, the Nile Perch (Lates niloticus). Sauper's film focuses primarily on the effect the disaster has had on the human inhabitants of Tanzania, and it is horrifying, and it should be seen.
Okay. I have to make this day productive, one way or another.
