Progress report

70 Days of Sweat, Day Three: 1,000 words

Total: 3,100 words

Current short story: 6,300 words. Yeah, this is gonna be a long one... but I know I'll have a lot of room to cut things out, so we'll see.

In other news: I'm halfway through reading Dead to Me, in case anyone I know is biting his nails and wondering what I think of it, and I'm finding it to be a most enjoyable book! More news on that when I officially post about it.

And, because I will read anything that my charming friend John Berlyne says to read, I've gotten a couple of collections of stories by James Blaylock out of the library, so I'll be getting into those next. I've read some of his novels, but only collaborations with Tim Powers for short fiction.

Plus! I have books that I'm somewhat perversely saving for special treats! Such as The Big Time, by Fritz Leiber. The sight of that one is making me drool, every time I look at my shelf, so I'll unleash myself on it very soon.
