Thoughts in Passing
This past week the kids had off from school, so our family headed to a cabin in the wilds of Wisconsin. No internet, no cellphone signal ... perfect. I didn't even burden myself with, "I should be writing a lot." It was the perfect way to get out of my own head and unwind. I enjoyed the autumn splendor, went for long walks in the woods, and read two books. Now I'm back and feeling less stressed and more connected, in a good way!

What I've been up to lately, writing-wise:

I have a short story in the next issue of F&SF, available at fine bookstores on November 1st. My inner 13-year-old is SO happy right now!

[Contributor's copies]

And I've been preparing for readings at a couple of big events coming up.

Next Sunday I'll be performing at WordBrew, an annual showcase for Minnesotan F/SF writers. It's always a great time. Check it out if you're in town!

November 17th will be the grand book release party and fairy-themed extravaganza for The Subverted Fairy Project, an art and writing collaboration that I am part of. It's going to be amazing. Mark your calendar now!

Things Shiny or Useful
Archive of all shiny or useful links:  

I haven't been reading many articles this month. However, I've been listening to the Writing Excuses podcast a lot. This season they're doing an excellent "What writers get wrong" series (about professions, conditions, hobbies, and all the multifaceted parts of a person's identity).
