So far, I've been insanely productive. Finished reading the Baldwin, read most of Jayne Anne Phillips Black Tickets, and then wrote a story! "Stomach Pains, and a Tightness in the Chest", probably less than 3000 words, and I'm not entirely sure it's finished yet, but it may be, and it's certainly finished enough to send out to y'all for comments, so when I get home, that's what I'll do. Remember, if you aren't on the readers list and want to be (getting my drafts as I write them), you just need to sign up. You can then sign off whenever you get tired of reading them. :-) Feedback is always welcome, but not required.
Any day with a new story in it is a good day. I'm going to finish up the Phillips (good stories) and then try to write up some notes, and then head home, to start reading criticism. Eep.
