New & Overdue

peach-syrup-iced-tea-640I’ve been pretty absent these last few weeks.
Because of various familiar mishaps I had to give less time to my blogs.
The little time I had I devoted to my writing.
And also, I was unable to complete two of the MOOCs I enrolled in earlier this year.
But here’s the good news, sort of: now that the situation stabilized, it’s too damn hot (44°C) to do anything but stare at a screen while enjoying the cold stream from the fan… so why not go back and complete what I started?

I hate leaving matters unfinished.
Which also means I’ll have to write a 1000-words non-genre story… by tomorrow night.

And – as I was getting in gear to pick-up my courses again and see the end of them… well, you know how it happens.
I stumbled upon a big list of very attractive summer courses and I decided that, as soon as the backlog has been removed, I’ll get two more courses – one in academical/non-fiction writing, and one in editing.

Because it’s hot as hell hereabouts, but that’s no excuse to have an idle mind.
Or something.
Now I just need a few hundred liters of ice-cold tea.
