Philip Brewer's Writing Progress


Sunday, 01 April 2001

I wrote my "author's bio" to go in Bones of the World and sent it in yesterday. I found that one harder to write than the last. I'm pleased enough with what I wrote, though.

We're finally getting some spring weather here. Of course, I'm spending the morning doing taxes. I'm nearly done with the first pass through everything, though, so it's not too bad.

I went for a run yesterday, my first outdoor run of the season. It was pathetic. I had hoped that the treadmill running would help. (And, I suppose, it did--no doubt my first run would have been even more feeble if I hadn't done my treadmill running. That's a depressing thought.) Still, you have to start where you are. Jackie and I lifted weights as well, which went a bit better than the running.

I'm nearly done with Points of Departure, a collection of Pat Murphy's short fiction. That will just about wrap up my planned reading of short fiction by Clarion instructors. I think I've got a pretty good feel now for the sort of short fiction each of the instructors writes. It will be very interesting to see how they teach it.
