To quote Rorschach: "I'm not locked here in with you. You're locked in here with me."

My brain to me, everyday.

I've been drinking a lot of coffee and pondering life and the state of world, which means I'm pretty dang depressed, but also hyper. The delivery folks wave at me through the window. They are all lovely with how they deliver my sanity.

From recent reports, Rooster is working on art for FAIREST FLESH, which will be unbelievably rad. Can't wait to experience the outcome. Seeing the spirit of a book become a piece of art is like watching my characters cross over into the material plane.

This week is a week to fall back into a writing schedule which has been upended due to Covid 19 and associated quarantines. While I haven't been on a schedule, I have been writing still, catching moments here and there. Not nearly as much as I would prefer but it has sustained me. Mostly working on short stories that have invaded my thoughts.

Also working on revisions for a previously shelved project, dark fantasy, a modern Korean-American/Celtic take on the world of the fae.

Shelving is like freezing a person before they die in the hope that future technology can cure and revive them. I think I now have the technology.

Lovely day (as they can get in the Age of Quarantine). I'm soaking up some sun on the porch while I read through the review copy of FAIREST FLESH. Editors are truly sorcerers, up there with other practitioners of the dark arts, like the witches who perfectly fold fitted sheets. I'm excited to see what Rooster Republic/Strangehouse has in store for this book next.

In the meantime, I can't wait to get my hands on the special edition of the NOT ALL MONSTERS antho. It was wonderful to work with Sara Tantlinger as the editor. The art. GAH. Don Noble's work has captured the feeling of this beautiful creature, I can't even. And egads! Have you seen the amount of talent in that book?!! And my little harpies are curled within among them all, waiting to feed your rage. (It won't hurt too much, I promise.) I am honored to have this story among such great authors, I NEED all their stories in my soul. Now would be my preference.

So here I wait. Patience has never been my strength. Well, the sun is good. The night will be too.

Read something spooky, cause if you can't when you're stuck like Jack in the Overlook Hotel, well you know what he said about too much work... or was that Homer?

I can't remember.

What day of the week is it?
