Writing Short Fiction

I love reading short fiction. I grew up reading “Omni” and “Asimov’s” and “F&SF”. I almost always buy the “best of” anthologies in mystery, SF, F, and literary. (I almost always read them, as well! I’m a bit behind in my short fiction reading for this year.

Dairy!

Last week, after three months, I added eggs back into my diet only to discover I was really allergic to them.

This week, I added back in dairy. The result was…mixed.

The Egg and I…

There are hundreds of recipes for how to make coconut milk out on the Interwebs.…

Yet another migraine update…

This past week, our intrepid traveler would have to admit to two migraines.

The first one was pretty standard, a headache that transformed into a migraine after a couple hours in the morning.

The second one was kind of weird. It started as a headache, then it kind of became a migraine, but only for a couple hours, then it downgraded back to a headache again.…

Regaining Focus

Last week, I managed to be incredibly focused. I wrote 10K words per day, while still keeping up 10K steps per day. I was away from home at a writing retreat. The only thing I had to do while I was there was write.…
