Monday Minutia & Ketchup

My dear Gentle Reader, I am puttering about right now dealing with Life. (It happens.) Rest assured all your authorial needs are being met, with the possible exception of an erudite and witty blog. Sufficient to say, I am moderately stranded in the middle of no-where with a rather slow internet connection, a ready supply of tea, and blustery weather ~ a writer’s dream.

I am still busy plotting the new fashion blog. It’s a pleasant restful alternative for my brain when it needs to chew on a plot point for a while without typing interference. My mind works in mysterious ~ mostly shoe-driven ~ ways.

This reminds me of a fellow author who once lamented to me, “I need a partner who understands that sometimes when I am lying on my back staring at the ceiling, that too is writing.”

I have also been temporarily distracted working up a presentation on experimental archaeology and ceramics for Reno WorldCon’s Thursday Art Night. I know, look a me, dabbling with the Other Side of Conventiondom. You’ll forgive me, won’t you?

In more book related news, the Fourth-day Universe website has nominated Blameless for a Literature Uni Award for Best Steampunk Book of 2010. The Awards show will be held on their YouTube channel on the 30th of May. If you’d like to vote for me (or anyone else) here is a link.

And now, if you will excuse me, I am going to go lie on my back and stare at the ceiling.
