Yes, I am, in 36 hours, and how quickly I’m realizing four weeks is little time to work on anything. The blog should blossom, and Galleon should see wind in its sails during that time. But I’ve plenty to work on:
The Slow Loris story – a long story, a work in progress.
My sheep novel, for which I’m there for (which forever needs a tweak or two).
My fish novel, the Council-funded once-contracted weirdo that needs to be in print years ago.
Multiple wanting short fictions, near misses that would raise the collection from damn to dayumn.
And a first foray into my northern novel, which exists in short form.
Meanwhile, I’ve had a story (A Serpent) accepted by Douglas Glover for his fine online venture Numero Cinq (which has published several of my favourite authors, including Joseph McElroy) and looming publication in an anthology to be released later this year.
More soon, mountain time.
