Forsaken by the caffeine god

Slept nearly twelve hours straight last night. Good lord, I'm sleeping my life away. Been trying to cut down on the caffeine, but not at that price. Probably on a related note, I'm in a less-than-ecstatic state of mind, today. No reason, just brain blues. I thought a caffeine OD would be just what I needed to shake off the blahs, but I couldn't seem to get enough in my system to have any sort of effect. I had a whole pot of green tea and two cups of coffee, and nothing. The caffeine god hath forsaken me! Wah!

Writing Stuff:

Finished my review of this week's Sci-Fiction story and emailed it off to my editor.

Slogging through all the critiques of "The Tanuki-Kettle" and trying to write thank-you notes to everyone. I ended up with over fifty critiques. Zounds. Also did a couple critiques for various writers groups (including one for your offering at Critters this week, britzkrieg. It should be on its way if you haven't gotten it yet.)

The fantasy story continues to develop. Did an overhaul on the opening and then managed about six-hundred more words. Not exactly an awe-inspiring accomplishment, but it's progress.

And I'm reading my contrib copy of issue #14 of ASIM. My God, them Aussies can jam in a lot of fiction between those covers! So far, that's been the highlight of my day.

(edit: I got my contracts from Realms of Fantasy in the mail. I've got a new highlight, especially as it appears that they're paying me more than I had initially thought. I'm not quite sure what calculation they're using, but I'm getting closer to $.06/word than $.05/word. Wooo!)
