I’ve got my backside back in the chair after a bit of a break (okay, quite a break) and am writing and submitting.  I think I needed that break, but it felt strange not to have stories percolating away, and to watch submission deadlines slide by.  It helps that I’ve replaced my poor old Jornada with a Asus Eee PC netbook (I call it my Squee PC) which I love.  It doesn’t have the instant on button of my Jornada, but it’s fast enough, and as long as I don’t load it up with a million programs it will hopefully continue so.

While I wasn’t writing, there was a lot of reading, a lot of cooking, and a lot of sitting outside on the deck with a bucket of wine looking at the stars.

Time to pummel the sourdough.
