Series of unfortunate events continue at work, I was sick, kid regressed in a very "interesting" way (don't ask: TMI), and I pushed the last version of my edited volume out into the world. Plus a mild case of the abyss of despair.

OK, so the semester is almost over, the 64 essays graded. I still have lots of grading to do, finals to administer, graduate exam committees to sit on, plagiarizers to flog, two research commitments to push out, vodka to drink...

I haven't been well lately, and one possible reason for that is that I haven't been writing. So I am making a commitment to write at least 500 words of a short story each day excluding Friday and Saturday. I will be documenting my progress here.

I have three manuscripts in progress, and will be working on whatever strikes my fancy, with the goal of completing at least one draft by June.

Today's goal : 500 words.
Words Written so far: 186  677!
Manuscript: "The Curse of Endless Summer"
