March 25, 2017

Well, I did promise a dearth of stories in March, but I admit, I didn’t expect it to be this bad.  The Grants got to me, basically, and by the time they were done, I had no writing brain left at all.

Still, as you will see, I managed to write a story today, and hopefully this will mark the return to a reasonable writing schedule.  I’ve also recently re-edited the story for Château d’Eau, The Un-Drowned Princess, which was always one of my favourites, so if you are in the mood for more subversive and feminist fairy tales, that might be a place to start.  And, of course, you can always check out the story index, which is searchable by genre as well as by station, title, and warnings.
