- I did not fall down a well, but I did fall smack dab into being assailed by allergens. I kept thinking the cold of last week was coming back, then realized* (prepare to be amazed by my deductive powers) that I felt fuzzy-headed after my walk each day… Aha! Allergies. (I'm a regular girl detective.) You can't put one over on me, not now that I take an extra zyrtec in the afternoon anyway.
- I forgot to tell y'all that there's a little excerpt from Blackwood in the newest issue of Lightspeed magazine for subscribers who get the whole thing e-lectronically.
- "What The Vampire Diaries Has Taught Me About Plotting" by Becca Weston. Good stuff; I'm an especially big fan of #1.
- Jane Friedman being sensible on a usually non-sensible topic with "The Stephen King Guide to Marketing."
- Check out these black spidery bits on Mars. Absolutely fascinating speculation about what they are, accompanied by gorgeous photos. (Via Kate Elliott.)
- My lovely pub sister Kim Curran wrote an excellent post earlier this week about "10 Things Not To Do To Get A Book Deal–And Beyond."
- "The Vampire Hunt in Lincoln Park, 1888"–Adam Selzer is on the case.
- Eclipse Online is coming next week, starting with one Christopher Rowe's fabulous novelette "The Contrary Gardener." Love, love. But don't take my word for it; there's an early review at that link.
*Also hoping this revelation means that starting tomorrow I will get the kind of revision progress in that I need to be getting, which I haven't this week thus far. Lots of thinking, but not enough writing fixety. Also hoping–tentatively–that the next week might bring resolution on a front that has taken seemingly forever to resolve but could be exciting. *is intentionally mysterious* Keep your fingers crossed. (You know, when they're not busy with other things.) Ciao for now.

Good luck! Hmmm – I have been getting allergy shots over the past six months, and it seems like it’s really made a difference. If your health insurance covers testing and subsequent shots, it may be well worth your while to pursue – I already feel like I’ve been sick with respiratory stuff much less in the last five months than in any prior period of similar duration in living memory…
This is an excellent point. Both my parents take them; I’ve been able to hold off, but this year the allergies are just WORSE. And this is likely not helped by the fact we live in what’s supposedly one of the worst allergy zones in the country.
