Philip Brewer's Writing Progress

I've gotten busy at work.

I did manage to get in breakfast with the Thursday morning gang again. Other than that I worked all day at work, then watched a video with Jackie. The only exercise was walking over to the video store. No progress on the story.

Tomorrow is likely to be more of the same.

Despite all that, I'm managing to be reasonably upbeat. The cartoons in my cube still seem gloomy. I take that as a positive sign.

One of the things people mentioned as a common side-effect of Clarion was that people often couldn't enjoy reading sf for some time afterwards. They had gotten stuck in critique mode. I'm pleased to report that I've evaded that fate, at least with regard to good stories. For example, I read Tom Purdom's "Civilians" in the August Asimov's and thought it was great.
