I took my love and I took it down...

...I climbed a mountain and I turned around.

This is the current shape of my 2013, with travel dates and everything. Beautiful travel dates. Hope to see you sometime in the months to come. 2014 is now half the list, July 2014 is closer to "now" than January 2013. And other horrifying thoughts. (Most horrifying of all, the first 2015 date has appeared. Gleep.)

No fixed deadline/being written/unsold:

"Carry Me Home"
"Pixie Season"
"These Antique Fables"
"Driving Jenny Home"
"Lady Antheia's Guide to Horticultural Warfare"
"The Ghosts of Bourbon Street"
"There is No Place for Sorrow in the Kingdom of the Cold"

There are a few things not on the list because they don't have titles yet, and they're not really stories for me until they acquire titles (even if those titles wind up changing seventeen times during the writing/editing process). There's at least one surprise coming that was never on the list at all, because that is the nature of lists: something always gets left off. Still, for the first time in months, the list actually got shorter, and that's awesome.

Look at that list. It's so shiny!
