Things have been a bit quiet around here because I’ve been busy.
- I’m back in physical therapy, this time something called neuro-physiotherapy, which is absolutely exhausting me.
- I’ve volunteered (on a temporary basis) to coordinate (and, most time-consumingly, build) Clarion West‘s social media until the permanent coordinator can step in. As the Write-a-thon and main workshop are just about to start, along with all the readings and parties associated with same, I’ve got a lot on my plate.
- I’ve been wrestling with two applications. One was a purely-for-the-fun competition-ish kind of thing far from my usual beaten path (which, no, I’m not going to tell you about here). But the other was an absolute bear, with an insane submission process involving the UI from hell.
But don’t despair! I have in mind a couple of longish blog posts: my review of Superior (really! I haven’t forgotten!) and some thoughts on lesbian fiction in the US and UK and how genre classification affects that. I definitely want to get those done before all our summer visitors descend on Seattle.
How’s your June been? What do you have planned for the rest of it? How many of you are either doing or supporting someone else who’s doing the Write-a-thon?

I hope you get some rest, soon! I've really appreciated your social media work on the Clarion West write-a-thon front. Very helpful.
I'm doing the write-a-thon AND I think I essentially recruited 3 or 4 people to join me. Yippee! I'm in the climax of the story I started writing last year (that I met with you and Kelley to talk about), and I'm pretty confident I will finish it before the write-a-thon ends.
Other than that, June has just been hard. The weather has zapped me and I've been in a black mood. Today is not helping. I need to get out more and interact with people and move my body more, all of which I'm working on and those things are helping. Plus, I know that the June Gloom will pass.
It'll be great to finally read that story!
The best cure for gloom I know is to get into nature, to walk in a park under the trees and/or by the water. If you can do that, I'm pretty sure life will look a lot better.
A good cure for gloom is a beer, a walk and doing something good for another person. I'm not making this up, you know.
Thanks so much for all your encouragement, too!
Yes, whined on Facebook and a friend invited me to go for a walk with her on the water. I'm going to do that this afternoon. I know this feeling is temporary. :D
Thanks! I'm going to do 2 out of the three this afternoon :).
