A Well-Oiled Machine


That's the name of a geocache placed in honor of my impending one-thousandth cache find, which isn't too far down the road now. This one was a slippery challenge, to be sure. In fact, if you live within a hundred miles of here, you probably heard me fussing and hollering and yelling and kicking and screaming as I labored to conquer the thing — and finally succeeded. So, I'm one cache closer now to the big 1K.

Otherwise, I'm working on an interview for Fearzone.com about Dark Shadows: Path of Fate and a new short tale titled "The End of Henry Switch Road." It's all flowing pretty well. Have gotten both bad news and good news on the writing front, so I guess it all evens out in the end...

Did you read my posting on the current state of publishing in the face of the economy? It will be interesting to see how things shake out over the next several years and what changes will be wrought for the scribe.

Yes I did, actually. I'm not holding my breath for big things happening, at least good ones, for some time to come, and then who knows how the "big things" are going to translate for folks like us. I'm a lousy speculator when it comes to such things -- and under the circumstances, I'm not sure anybody's doing much more than taking stabs in the dark.
