from the trenches

I knew I said that I'd post coda things now that I'm going to bi-weekly essays, and today would be the first day of the new order and I've failed. Alas. Today was spent going glaring at my outline and waiting in doctor's waiting rooms. I did read a really great article from Kristine Kathryn Rusch about recessions, short fiction, and it was pretty inspiring. Go read, and then read some more. I've also had some interesting twitter and identi.ca conversations about git and emacs, which keeps me entertained at least. I've also been trying out new RSS readers, as I'd really like something that ran locally. Canto seems to be leading the pack, but I have so many feeds at the moment that switching seems onerous, and I need something that I can sync between multiple machines, so the whole switch process gives me shivers. Maybe tomorrow. In the mean time, I think I'm ready to get back to writing actual fiction (forward progress) in a day or two, if I can get through one or two more blasted sections of this re-outline; which despite the pain, has been really good for my thinking about the book.

If you were wondering, that really is what it's like to be in my head. And you thought that my writing was scatter brained.
