Thoughts in Passing
Summer is a hectic, not-so-productive time for me. Happy Autumn, everyone! And a blessed Autumn Equinox to those who celebrate it.

My autumn goals are always threefold: ease back into being more productive now that I have school mornings to myself; de-stress myself; and frantically try to catch up with everything that I fell behind on during the summer. This includes cleaning and meal-planning and paperwork, as well as my Very Long Indeed list of writing-related to-dos. That's not actual writing, mind you, just the many obligations and projects and bookkeeping related to being a writer!

Then my oldest got sick with pneumonia. He's doing a lot better now, thank goodness, but all my fine plans (and alone time!) went by the wayside for the last week and a half. Time to take a deep breath and remind myself that fifteen minutes at a time still makes a difference. It's time to focus on writing.

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:
 
I had a great reading at The Wolf House (my pictures of this weird, wonderful, bizarre space are here and here) as part of the Subverted Fairy Project. It was recorded, so you should be able to listen to that soon. And there will be more news about this project as the launch date gets closer. If you're local to the Twin Cities, mark November 17th on your calendar for an awesome launch party!
 
To get back into the swing of writing more, I've found Cold Turkey Writer incredibly useful. It takes over your whole computer and doesn't let you do anything else until you've written the amount of words or for the amount of minutes that you specify. Great for avoiding distractions!
