    I'd rather type it out manually than have to fix all the homonyms and spelling errors anyway. It slows me down when the groove is in gear. By the way what does it mean when a publisher puts you on the short list?

    First day writing again since the surgery. A bit hard with the blood dripping and kleenex shoved up the snozz, but getting by. Had to get something done, though. Was getting sick of not writing already. Two chapters done, and many more to go.

    You made the first cuts Congrats! Even if you don't get in, making the shortlist is a huge accomplishment!

    Working on it everyday! Just saw the back cover today, finalized the story order and waiting for the publisher to get the PDF finished for a final proofread/copyedit. March 1st is the word

    I tried Dragon for about 4 months and gave up on it. It's in my unused programs pile....

    I'm getting ready to send Mr Swanson one of my little darlings for consideration Cee Dub. I hope he takes one or several of mine in a collection and maybe we can share the pages of an anthology in the future.

    My review of Ampersand, Mass by William Walsh is now live at The Nervous Breakdown. Excellent collection of stories.

    Read it Richard. Damn good review. That was my first time jumpin' to the nervous breakdown. Now I've seen Ozmo's, Cee Dub's, and your 'other' place. I remain amazed at how you do it all. In fact I'd like to buy two of those ten milligram 'doitalls' off you if you can spare a few. Just kidding, just kidding Richard... you should give me two for free just to get me hooked.

    All right I've muxxed around long enough. Now I absolutely have to get back to this zombie western story if I'm ever gonna get it out of my head and into an anthology before zombies lose their vogue. Notice we're starting to see more werewolf anthologies lately so zombies must be, like , so five minutes ago... (channeling my best valley girl impersonation). I'll be back in a week or so. Lol (Lots of Love? I don't know what that LOL means so Lots of love back at you all.
