Got my picture taken in the bowels of the Bellingham Herald building for the Serial Story: Memories of Light. Also, we will be doing a reading of the serial at Village Books at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Oct.12.

Finished the 2nd draft of the opening story for my Fiction and Poetry collection. It is a Deserted Lands short short story. I haven’t written a ‘writer’ story as such, so this is a first. What would a middle-aged writer faced with the end of the world do? This story provides one answer.
