*yawn* Morning,…

*yawn* Morning, everyone. Almost afternoon here, and time passing swiftly. (Ain't that always the way when you're trying to catch up on work?) I'm actually feeling reasonably in control this morning -- catching up on my teaching journals, almost done with my analysis of my demo, finished my fiction evaluation, read all the submissions for the anthology so far (tentatively titled "Maiden Voyage"), cooked cornbread this morning so I didn't have to buy lunch on campus...just generally productive and in control. Still behind, but in a controlled way. :-) Catching up fast. I expect to be all caught up on academics by the end of the week. So there. :-)

Had an interesting time yesterday evening talking to my photographer friend Steve about a possible collaboration for submission to Masquerade's Erotic Journal. That would be great fun -- writing a story to go with Steve's photos.

Here are the guidelines for the anthology, in case any of you are interested in submitting to it.
