Updating for once, plus what is up with the spam lately?

My last entry has gotten hit with more spam comments in the last month than all my other LJ entries combined. I thought I'd write another one to give that one a break from all of the abuse. It seems only fair.

Since all the way back when I wrote that one, in December, I have:

- Lost eight of the ten pounds I've lost since early November;
- Written a beginning chunk of a science fiction novel;
- Accepted invitations to submit stories to three anthologies;
- Written most of the story that's due first;
- Registered for OddCon (April), WorldCon (August), and World Fantasy (October (and it's a good thing I'm a planner, because WFC sold out early. If you want to go but have no membership, get on the waiting list at the World Fantasy website));
- Read slush pretty much every day, except when I had to be away for a funeral;
- Basically lived the dream of a writer with kids who has to stick to a writing routine in order to get anything done.

How have you been?
