Solstice approaches and the daylight wanes almost to nothing. Here in Kansas City we’ve just had our first snow and our first night below 0F. The semester is over, with only one final exam left between me and (hopefully) sounder sleep. It seems as good a time as any to reacquaint myself with the world.
At 14,000 words my NaNoWriMo novel is neither a failure nor a success: in fewer than 20 days I doubled my fiction word count for the school year. I’ve written one major and one minor paper in the last two weeks, the first of which I may share here.
I’m working on my recipe for my Yule mead. While searching for inspiration, I found a fantastic beginner’s recipe: http://www.moremead.com/mead_logs/Ancient_OCC.html
And while I’m sharing links, I found this while catching up on Chas Clifton’s blog: http://mysterytheater.blogspot.com/2010/10/free-classic-weird-fiction.html
Happy day, all.
