Procrastination - at least while the coffee perks.

Today is the day the kids went back to school.  My wife has gone to work and I'm in the office, listening to the burble of percolating coffee with my faithful golden retriever asleep by my feet.  It's a whole new start into my writing routine but where to start?

Doc Merl's Rolling Apothecary is well under way with a good deal of life breathed into it during Clarion West's Write-a-thon.  There's also a short story called The Question, a little bit of political science fiction.  Then there's another short story, The Last Repairman, about run-down cyborg people after the fall of civilization.  Doc Merl is the one I'm in the mood to move on but both of the others are for anthologies that have deadlines so I'll need to flip a coin and get flying.

Listen to that - the coffee's ready.  Time to get to work.
