My wife’s Valentine’s Day gift to me? The freedom to go to a coffee shop today and write for a few hours.

Awww. What a great present! It’s just my size too!

I’ve managed to catch up on my fiction and poetry story submissions and answer a bunch of emails. Plus, I wrote about 1,200 words on a new short story. I know, I should really be regrouping on the novel, but I really had some good ideas in my head about this steampunk short story. It’s a sort of follow up, or continuation of my previous short story which is out there in world – hopefully in the hands of an editor who’s had a few drinks and is in the mood to buy a crazy steampunk fiction mix… I mean, hopefully a discerning editor who like a really well-written tale. Yeah. That’s what I mean.

Hope your Valentine’s Day/ President’s Day weekend is equally kind to your writing. (Of course, if you don’t live in the States, President’s Day means nada to you. But hey, work with me here!)
