Hey, munchkins. I know, I haven't talked to y'all in days, but you will
forgive me, since in exchange I have managed to get Clean Sheets
up and running! Stop
check out the fiction, book review, how-to column and editorial. I'll be
doing an editorial every week, so now you're assured of reading something
new regularly. :-) Next week we'll be adding poetry (edited by Heather
:-), art, humor, and a lube product review. By the end of the month, we
should have a whole issue up, and in November, we'll start rotating things
off and on. It's very exciting, and I can see that this could easily
consume my life. I was up until 6 a.m. on Tuesday night getting the first
slice up there (Heather gallantly stayed up 'til 4:30 to keep me company
and helped me untangle some knotty problems as I tried to decipher someone
else's HTML code (they were using things, like tables, that I had no
experience of, meep.)), and while I don't expect such late hours to be a
regular thing, I do think I should just not expect to do anything else on
Tuesday nights -- or at least not schedule anything I need to be awake for
on Wednesday mornings.
We'll be doing a fair bit of fine-tuning over the next month, so please
feel free to write me with any suggestions. My regular address is fine,
or you can try firstname.lastname@example.org (which I'll probably read less
frequently, to be honest).
Soon we'll have a message board up there, so we can get feedback
publically; that'll be interesting. Oh, I could talk about this project
for pages, and I should really go do some work that will actually pay me,
so I'll talk to y'all later, okay? Hope everyone's well...
(I will note that I had a perfectly lovely day with Heather yesterday.
Didn't get so much accomplished, but had a lot of fun puttering around
doing little errands and such. About as much as my brain could
handle, after staying up all night.)
