Hi. My name is Nayad A. Monroe, and I'm addicted to not blogging. I've been not blogging for the last two months, and I really want to get not blogging out of my life. My not blogging has gotten out of control.
Two writing-related things that have happened in the two months: story releases! The Crimson Pact: Volume Two is a demon-fighting anthology edited by Paul Genesse that includes "Three Transformations," by me. It shows what happens when Emily, who is just trying to run a no-kill animal shelter, receives unexpected and unwanted visitors who challenge her worldview with a vengeance.
Going in a different direction, there's Space Tramps: Full-Throttle Space Tales #5, edited by Jennifer Brozek, full of space opera stories about the lost, forgotten, and homeless in the far future. It contains "Running in Wonderland," also by me. A refugee from a destroyed planet has one day to get a job done in the underworld of an unfamiliar and corrupt space station.
In the last two months, I also went to WorldCon in Reno, Nevada, and started the early stages of writing a novel, and (more recently) also developed my habitual fall urge to MAKE THINGS NOW (this year, it's flowers made of machine-felted sweaters!). Combined with my daily slush-reading for Clarkesworld Magazine (have you read the October issue yet?), and my child-care duties, my not blogging has been thoroughly enabled. The enabling will continue all the way through my trip to San Diego for the World Fantasy Convention, where I may or may not either appear on a panel or do a reading, depending on what the organizers say when they get back to me about that.
Okay, silence broken. See ya later! :)
