1)The Bay Area was full of smoke form wildfires to the north for about two weeks. It was very unpleasant. We had to keep the kid inside and E who is in her 70s and has some breathing problems got quite sick. We were able to plan a last minute escape to Morro Bay where we spent two nights. I saw many sea otters! We hung out on the beach which was lovely, and E slept a lot and has recovered. So I'm really glad we had the time and money to do that

2) Our Thanksgiving was nice. I hosted for my family, and my turkey came out well. I still miss being in the UK or grad school and having peers to invite but its nice to have the family too.

3) I'm one of many people over at Lady Business discussing our anticipated books for 2019.

Are you having a hard day today? Me too. So I've written a post about my favorite comforting short fiction over at Lady Business in case a short escape into another world will help. Take care of yourselves everyone.

Today I'm very excited to bring you my latest Short and Sweet Column, which is something I've been working on for some time. So may I present a roundtable discussion of short fiction reading habits!

I was inspired to put this together by reading some advice on how to get into short SFF that I didn't think would work for me. I was just going to write up my own advice on this topic, but then I thought maybe I should ask some other people what they thought. Then some friends where talking about reading short SFF and their reading habits where different from mine in interesting ways. So I thought it would fun to ask people about that too. So I smooshed the two ideas together and created this roundtable. It is the first time I've organized something like this and I'm very happy with how it turned out.
