Last week I had a book binge. I now have eight new books to get my eyes around. That is also including two new proofs. One is Douglas Coupland's 'Generation A.' I am going to try and read it before Edinburgh in August.
Look at that beautiful stack (and retro carpet - funky!) of books. I like making books like pretty. I think it is the Bookseller part of me.
I have also had a splurge with making some submissions. Some are new stories, some have been sent more than twice and now I am waiting to hear back. One magazine has closed to submissions (I missed the notice on the website - should not trust Duotrope) but I will try when they reopen and another said a story was too long (again, Duotrope).
Since my binge I have felt ill. I currently have a cold (no, its not swine flu) and feel dreadful. I am currently sleeping, reading, watching faceless day time television and sleeping. There has been some writing done too. I am keeping topped up with 'day nurse' and hot blackcurrant.
