Today I finished the last rough draft of the final story in my shared world collection At the End of the World. Six stories, probably around twenty thousand words once edited. The publishing timeline for this book looks like September, which means heavy editing over the next two months.
Poetry has taken a backseat to finishing At the End of the World, but I have read through the Rhysling Anthology and most of Jenni Fagan’s The Dead Queen of Bohemia. Reading is also writing.
I’ve got one story to submit before the thirtieth and another two I hope to submit before vacation. There’s always more to do. Writers’ vacations don’t look like those of other people.
