"Maybe I'd just disappear..."

I think I slept about seven hours. It's been a while since I slept that long at a stretch. Pills were required, and I'm still a bit groggy. But Spooky says I look better than I did yesterday, so I suppose that's something.

I started smoking again yesterday. That might last for a month. Spooky is not happy with me.

Yesterday was spent on Two Worlds and In Between, editing, getting files ready for readingthedark, because he and sovay have agreed to lend me a hand with this monstrous task (and I am enormously grateful).

Geoffrey arrived about seven p.m. (CaST). We got takeout from a Palestinian place nearby. Really, really good food. The best baba ghanoush I've ever had. And then there was talk and talk and talk. He headed back to Framingham about 3 ayem (CaST).

Today, I need to proofread the galley pages for "The Collier's Venus (1893)," for ellen_datlow's forthcoming anthology, Naked City. And I need to sign the signature pages for Subterranean Press' forthcoming anthology, Subterranean: Tales of Dark Fantasy 2 (which includes my sf story, "Hydrarguros").

Tomorrow, I go back to work on The Drowning Girl: A Memoir.

Between the new forthcoming stories, the reprints, and the best of collection, this is looking like a very busy year for your work. Congrats!

Beginning to seem that way.

Dude. I have to try that.

I am glad that story will be in paper-and-ink print; I love it.

Next time you're here, we'll get some.

Yep. I'm very glad that it's going to be in print.

Smoking's one habit I never shook off - I hope you have more luck. Glad you got some sleep in the end.

Does Palestinian cuisine offer anything for vegetarians? If so, I'll check it out.

I pick it up and drop it. It's always been easy for me to drop. I just stop. But the stress lately...

Longest I've managed to quit in years was five days.

One day back at my day job and I was smoking like a chimney again.

I understand the smoking, have you tried the e-cigarettes yet? I loved mine (a Janty dura-c) until my amped up sense of smell made eating a big problem and I started smoking again. It's amazing how much a few cigarettes a day damps that down.

No. There's already too much e and i in my life.

Not that this relates really, but I thought you'd get a chuckle out of Dennis Upper's seminal paper on writer's block, quite possibly the shortest scientific paper ever written.
