This week, I used that time to finish my current work-in-progress, which came in a little under 7,000 words. The dog and I went for some walks. I caught up on television shows. I've done some reading. Oh, and chores and errands. But the house is too quiet, and I found myself doing my writing at a nearby Starbucks. I remember being single once with all my time as my own, but that was so long ago that I've forgotten how to handle it. It'll come back to me how to use the time soon enough, I'm sure.
Bits and pieces:
- Photos from the day Matt Smith tried on several costumes to find the right look for the Doctor. His body language seems to transform in the photo where he puts on the bow tie.
- Lightspeed Magazine has reprinted an excellent story by Nancy Kress called "End Game" that actually hits close to home for me.
- My favorite news article of the day is about a spontaneous goat manure fire. Just because saying "spontaneous goat manure fire" makes me laugh. That should be a band name.
