My first run back in hill country this morning. Wisconsin, I miss you. Martha’s Vineyard, you too. Oh, the flatness.
Only did about 3 miles, and I’m wheezing. Still, it was amazingly beautiful out–peak color is past here in Central Massachusetts, just about hitting its gorgeousness in my old stomping grounds of central Connecticut, but there’s still plenty of red and gold. The old joke about New England’s four seasons runs, “Winter, Mud Season, Roadwork, and October. October makes the rest of it worthwhile.” (Some areas substitute Black Fly Season for Roadwork. In Maine, they have two seasons: Winter and Poor Sledding.)
I’m home from Viable Paradise, and crushed under an enormous bolus of work. Last night I managed about three hours of very necessary paperwork. And I have these page proofs that keep showing up and demanding attention.
But the Shoggoths in Bloom collection seems to be shipping early (yay! You can read the first half of the award-winning title story here!) and I have ARCs for Shattered Pillars. New book smell!
There will be a giveaway soon!*
And now, coffee break is over. Back on my head.
*Lick here, you may be one of the lucky 25.
