The Red Tree

"Don't you think you'll be better off without me tied around neck?"

Yesterday it was warm enough that I went to the market without my coat. Today, the cold is back. Currently, it's 35˚F, with the windchill at 22˚F. Tonight, we'll reach a low of 17˚F, with a windchill of 1˚F. But we'll be back in the fifties by Sunday. Winter is dying. I made it through another one without buying a new coat (the grey coat I usually wear, I bought it in December 2001).

Yesterday brought an offer to teach at college writing workshop* and someone else wanting to translate "Galápagos" into Czech. I received a royalty check for $1.13. But I didn't get any writing done. Germination turned into confusion a few days back. I've shelved "The Love Song of J. Alfred Morlock" (I'll come back to it), and I'm writing a different piece for Sirenia Digest #121.

Please have a look at the current eBay auctions.

Last night, we saw Jay Roach's Trumbo (2015), which I thought was quite good despite the multitude of historical inaccuracies.

Yes, well. Every blog entry can't be solid fucking titillating gold, now can it?

"When you were young and your heart was an open book..."

Another leaden day. Yesterday, Part II. The only significant difference, near as I can tell, between yesterday and today is that today is wet, since it rained in the night. Currently, it's 45˚F, so at least it's a little warmer. There, that's how today is different. Whee.

I'm trying to get started on the story for Sirenia Digest #121, which will be "The Love Song of J. Alfred Morlock." And after that I need to write the story based on the Dave McKean painting, which will likely be titled "Objects in the Mirror." And I need to get started on the Next New Novel. At this point, I'm behind by about two weeks.

And today I'm sick. I'm not gonna go into details.

Please have a look at our eBay auctions. Thank you.

We've finally started watching Better Call Saul, and I'm liking it quite a lot.
