We had a lovely time at the Maine School of Science and Mathematics in Limestone on Friday. A nice group of students and teachers came to hear us talk about the writing life, and then we headed back down to central Maine in the beginning swirls of a snowstorm.
By the time we hit Mars Hill, the snow was thick rain, and from Houlton onward, just rain, with the temps dancing between 34 and 36F (1 t0 2C) and moose potentially on the move. Still, we made it home in good time, even with stopping off at the Unity House of Pizza to take on a double-garlic pizza.
Unfortunately, the cold I caught in a much less virulent form than Steve did several weeks ago took advantage of our travels to come back on me like a ton of bricks. No fair! So, I’ll be working from the couch again today, and hope to avoid the two-hour nap attack that ate into yesterday’s production of words.

Also, Steve has been busy with the conversion of various bits of a Miri Robertson/Klamath novel. You can read the intro here and the first bit here. To the best of my knowledge, he plans to get another bit up on the site tomorrow, Monday, March 19, so…watch the skies. Or at least, the webpage.
