[writing|interviews] In the frozen tundra of the Midwest

Flew to Omaha yesterday. I expect to be able to keep writing momentum on this trip.

Over the past two days I have spent 5.0 hours editing the Sunspin outline, largely based on feedback from mcurry. He did an excellent job of flagging some issues, as well as reinforcing some of the issues I'd identified on my own. The ending needed some serious help, and I think I've sorted out what and how.

In other writing news, one of the acceptances from last week was the short story "The Blade of His Plow", for the DAW anthology Human For a Day, edited by Jennifer Brozek. The other was "Brown-Bottle Nostrum" to 10Flash Quarterly. Plus a reprint sale to the same market.

Also, I had so much fun with the recent Paul London interview [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] that I will take questions in this comment thread to assemble into an interview in the next week or two. So ask me about writing, cancer, parenting, life, myself, whatever.

Another week here in the country of the corn...
