A few thoughts on time for today...
First, I'm happy to report "Mandatory Waiting Period" will appear in Permuted Press's forthcoming Times of Trouble anthology edited by Lane Adamson. Our escapade with time travel was one of the last times Jamie and I exchanged manuscripts and beta-read for one another, so this one's for you, Jamie. Thanks.
I've been thinking about time lately, how much of a curse and blessing a full time job can be. For one, it eats oodles of time. I see other writers in my relative position all over the social media map, and think, how the hell does he/she/it do that? I'm lucky to blog a few times a week and maybe hit a forum once or twice. My kids eat oodles of time, too, but I love those little scamps. There's a weird trade-off: my job and my children provide plenty of inspiration and writing fodder, but suck away the space to sufficiently use it (hence the curse/blessing).
Finally, NPR (I'm addicted) broadcast an interesting science tidbit last week on the way we perceive time. It's worth the read/listen. "How to Live Forever! Or Why Habits are a Curse"
Here's hoping you find the time to do what you want/need to do today.
