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.

Heh. I am supposed to be getting caught up on work this afternoon and I just spent an hour and a half writing an essay about anonymous data storage on the Internet.

And then I checked my friends page. And commented on your post.

I am going to write some C++. Real soon now! After I check the pot roast and get some laundry done...

Oooh, sounds great! If I were the owner of an sf market, I'd snap it up! :)

Be sure to let us know when "Human Error" lands someplace. I know I'll sure be interested in reading it.

And Jay Lake demonstrates again why he is the most prolific author in the history of ever.
