Among the Things I Neglected to Mention...

Back in April, Chiaroscuro started carrying a poem of mine called On a Beach. It wasn't written on my best day for titles, but I like the piece.

Terrible Beauty, Fearful Symmetry is definitely coming together. I expect I might be seeing the galley for Mosquito Story, which will be reprinted in this anthology, within the next few weeks.

Then, A Foreigner's View of the River has been confirmed for the last Monday of July at Fantasy Magazine.

Right now, I am in the middle of a move that more closely resembles far too much long distance travel. To afford the long distance, I've taken up every possible job I could get. When I am not working, I am off to the side, killing things in pixels so I can stop thinking.

In about a week, I will be heading to Kuala Lumpur to assist my parents in moving house, where I will clear out a room I lived in for ten years. I'll still be working, likely doing as many nights as I can handle, as I will be neck deep in furniture during the day. Two weeks after that, I will be heading to a much father away place, to handle my own move. And I will almost certainly still be working. I had originally hoped to finish about three pieces that honestly do require finishing before the end of the month. Two of these are aspects of Finches. The last is something I want to be able to write, sometime soon. A part of me still firmly believes the problem here is simply a lack of efficiency. Efficiency makes more things doable.

Re: Woo hoo hoo!
I think it is? XD

The bite is on my ankle so it's been itchy on and off. I keep expecting to feel a cooling sensation like the white flower oil, but there doesn't seem to be any. So, I get confused if that makes any sense.

*chuckles* It's true there's not much of a cooling sensation like white flower oil. I get how that can be confusing, but I guess it's like old-fashioned disinfectant and these new cream things. I'm always expecting it to burn when I slap it on a cut. It gets kind of weird when all I feel is cold cream. :)
