As you may or may not have noticed, I've kind of disappeared from the blogosphere again. My fall semester began last month, and it has been kicking my ass workload-wise. But on the bright side, two shiny writerly things: 

1) First, pimpage: my story "Ghost Writer to the Dead" is now out in the October 2012 issue of Penumbra! It's the first anniversary for Penumbra and its publisher, Musa Publishing, so what better way to wish them a happy one than to consider buying an issue or subscription.

2) Because I kind of sucked about balancing writing and school last year, I promised myself this year that my train ride to and from work would be dedicated to fiction writing, no matter what. One month into the semester, and I'm pleased to say that I've stuck to that. It's not much writing time, but it's something, which is far more than I managed before.

Writing on a train is pretty impressive! Well done ;o)

It doesn't feel super productive most days since 20 minutes is just enough time for me to finally hit my groove and then, oops, my stop! But I'm getting something done at least, if ever so slowly.

Sometimes that's the best we can do ;o)

I think "best I can do" will be a way of life until I'm done with school. :)

School was always such a huge time-suck for me, too, so I feel your pain. Even though it's not much, I think it's great how you've managed to sneak in some writing time while going back and forth on the train. A little writing time is better than no writing time, after all!

It definitely is! During my spring semester, I would go weeks without doing any writing, and it was always such a slog to get back into it. Keeping up at least my little bit of train time has been helping to keep that from happening.

Congrats on the story, the new semester, and sticking to your writerly goal.
