I practically memorized this sucker. A great read whether you have ten minutes or all day.

I practically memorized this sucker. A great read whether you have ten minutes or all day.

My wife has evidently owned a hardback version of a favorite book of mine for years. As in before we were married years. (Katharine Briggs’s An Encyclopedia of Faeries, for the curious.) I just noticed it on the bookshelf yesterday.

And people wonder why we get along so well.

In other news: WIP still IP. Exploiting an unforeseen moment for fun and mayhem in the current chapter.

After four days of trying and failing to build up the energy to submit hard copy of a short to a Luddite SF market, I decided to sub it to a few more 21st century places instead.

Read Gaiman’s latest fable. Allowing it to settle. I need to review it and a couple of Chuck Wendig books under my Goodreads pseudonym.

As I wrote this, my tinnitus cranked up for no apparent reason. Maybe a potassium tablet will help.

Also–a round of applause and/or drinks for Writers under the Arch, who hammered the last bit of WIP I read them into something finer and funnier this week.

    I have tinnitus too. Didn’t know potassium could help. I’ll put a banana in each ear.

      I’m not sure it does help, honestly…but so long as I don’t get crazy with it I don’t think it hurts.

      The second ear doctor mentioned he suspected an issue with the sodium/potassium balance in the inner ear fluid (hydrops) about which they can do diddly directly. Since I know I have a reaction to large amounts of sodium in food, I have the potassium handy anyway.
