Summer visitors, and a quick update

Things have been a wee bit quiet here on the blog, so I thought I’d share a photo I snapped when I arrived home today:

Summer visitors!

Right now, we’re between human-variety visitors at our house, which has left us a narrow window of opportunity to paint. The painting should be done in the next couple of days, just before more visitors arrive, and then, it’s back to work for me. Fortunately, I’ve found my groove on a couple of things I’ve been working on. Or, what Ursula le Guin (and Virginia Woolf before her) might call rhythm. It’s a long process, waiting for that rhythm to arrive — a long, uncomfortable, twitchy process. But it’s part of my process and I’m slowly coming to terms with it.

But, more about that later. For now, I’m trying to catch up on email while I wait for a coat of paint to dry.

Oh, and on a completely non-SHADOWS CAST BY STARS note, I’ve got a story in the current issue of ON SPEC magazine! Yay! And someone reviewed it, too, which is extra-cool.
