It feels like it's been weeks since I started up my laptop, but it's only been a few days. Time flies when you're not having any fun at all, I guess. I've had the flu, and have been couch-ridden, overindulging in nose spray, Family Feud, and been subsiding on rice cooked in chicken broth (the rice was good, at least). I'm happy to say that today I feel...less corpse-like, if nothing else.
In other news, I've got a short story, "Vainglory," published in The Opening Line this month, as part of their Seven Deadly Sins issue. Vainglory is an archaic word meaning excessive pride in one's accomplishments. The story features characters from my December submission to the mag, "Cold Again."
