Ho, boy! I do not feel like someone on vacation. Technically I’ve been off since Friday but the weekend, including Friday and today have been super busy, both with day job things and other things. Still, tomorrow I should get the last of the urgent day job stuff and some cleaning out of the way, and then I’ll be able to settle Continue reading Twice Fortnightly – My Vacation Starts When?
What a week! It seems spring has come to Stockholm and I’ve been enjoying the lovely weather as well as doing a lot of writing. Here’s what I’ve done: Drafted chapters 15-19 of Dress Rehearsal Rag.

The 11th, and second to last, chapter of One Year to a Writing Life is about rewriting. I’ll confess that due to NaNo and the impending release of Going Home, I haven’t managed to put quite as much time into the exercises as I normally do.
