We ate Wednesday dinner at Sushiland, a nice "sushi conveyor belt" place on SE 164th near to HP. It was more tasty than it had a right to be, given the price and the atmosphere. Definitely worth many repeat visits. Lunch today was at 360 Pizzeria, where I had a nice spinach salad and an enjoyable slice of "squash pizza" (which was mostly regular pizza with a bit of yellow squash on it).
Went to Borders to write Wednesday night and made it through the rest of the first draft of "Alien Across the Hall". The draft clocked in at about 4800 words. Over the next two days, I'll do the rewrite to tighten it up and get it flowing better. I think the story has some nice qualities, though the alien (the one across the hall :-) is much more in the background than I first thought it would be. After rewrite, it goes off to SacSpec for the meeting Wednesday.
After that, it's rewrite "Game of Chase" and send to Bruce Taylor, read some Ken Scholes and pick a story for him to read (I'm thinking "Hunters" or "Old Town"), then get going on "One Night with the Picture Lady". Gotta keep on, keep on, keep on doing it right.
