[writing] In which the writer conducts writing avoidance by, erm, writing

Ok, so I owe... :: counts on fingers :: ...two novellas and four short stories, and I'm supposed to be writing Black Tulip this month. So what did I do today? I wrote a 5,000 word spec story called "Human Error." Hard sf at that, not exactly my core specialty.

This is hard to complain about. The idea was there, I wanted to explore it, I wanted to test the New Model Process in a different literary form. Yadda yadda yadda, bitch bitch bitch.
