Good News Comes From the Mailbox

I packed boxes last night still I passed out and overslept this morning, but still I'm a happy guy. Let me count the reasons why:
  • A publisher sent me some ARCs out of the blue(one of them a Lynn Abbey title due out in August). Free books!

  • I found a check for my magazine work in the mailbox.

  • Last weekend, made good progress on a new short story, called "The Watchmaker" for now. Feels good.

  • Finished reading "The Spin" by Robert Charles Wilson. Wow.
Now if only the weather would improve.

i can't complain. my flowers don't need to be watered and i have a legitimate excuse for not mowing the lawn. other people's roses are blooming like crazy and i get to smell them. i'm spending a few hours a day in a darkened theater, so it's nice to be entering a warm refuge instead of missing the sun.
plus it makes my hair curl.

obviously, YMMV.

Actually, I have been enjoying both the sound and the smell of the rain every evening; the maples outside my living room window have just the right size or shape to make soothing sounds.

So, perhaps my complaint is overblown. I'm getting decent mileage out of this rain.

Money and free books?

Nope. Despite weather, doesn't sound like life could be better. ;)

Yay!

(Oh, and Spin is the best book of 2006, in my opinion.)
