When I'm not reading Empson, I'm sending e-mail back and forth with Jed. Yes, we're actually sitting in the same apartment, and often in the same room, but we're trying to write an editorial together for SH, about journalling, and its function in the speculative fiction community (spurred primarily by tomorrow's upcoming author focus on Cory Doctorow, of boingboing journalling fame). Fun writing with Jed. Should do it more often. Though we have a tendency, I think, to get finicky with each other, drawing ever finer distinctions, much in the Empsonian style, a tendency that will probably need curbing at some point if the editorial is to remain a) readable and b) of a sane length.
Ooh, but I think Jed's just finished making lunch. Chicken and vegetable pan-fried dumplings, yum!
