* Generally Bored with Internet - it has nothing to do with me joining a new secret government agency for Grand Ballroom Investigations**

I haven't spent as much time surfing the web lately... It just hasn't caught my interest. However, being bored with the internet has led to two things:

1) Livejournal slacking, including commenting to congratulate you on your birthdays, publications and general well-being. So, to anyone with seriously good news: Congratulations!
2) Productivity. I've revised and sent out a lot of short stories this month, written a flash fiction piece (and translated a large corporate website at work - work for real money, yeah). The result is that I now have 13 short stories making the rounds at all-respectable publishers, and a novel draft that's just a little closer to completion.

** The existence of which I have to thoroughly deny; budget cuts won't even allow us doing Minor Hallway Checkouts.

I understand...I recently took a couple of weeks off LJ for the same reasons!

Well, I can totally get behind #2, but #1 is just unacceptable.
;)

Nice to see you!

Heh, sounds like someone got an ARC hardback and no cheers from me ;-)

I'll forgive you, I suppose. ;)

Forgiveness would be nice. Perhaps you can write it off as the adversity all budding writers must go through ;-)

My pain will only make me a better writer!

What denials?!? I deny ever having denied anything! And how could I do anything else? GBI is all about Truth, Justice, and Gorgeous Gowns.
