It’s very hard to struggle back into a rhythm of work after being flung out of it for so long. To anyone who says 5 days isn’t a long time, I say: clearly you have never truly been in this kind of rhythm. But we are clawing our way back to production. We got back [...]

SPONTANEOUS CONTEST FOR A FREE E-SUBSCRIPTION! It seems that the rush may have waited until the VERY end to hit; we’ve received a clutch of submissions all within the last few hours. So I just now (literally, like a minute ago) decided to spontaneously give away a free subscription. Take a guess at how many [...]

We got another query today asking about our policy on profanity. We get this question pretty frequently. It is always better to ask though, and we don’t mind the question at all – we appreciate that you’d take care to consider the details. I think I’ve said so here before, but I’m going to repeat [...]

I’m sane but I’m overwhelmed

One of the two declarations in this post’s title is a lie. Today was one of those days where I got a lot done, but the todo list didn’t seem to get any shorter. I hate those days… no matter how much you accomplish you feel like a lazy bum. The most important thing I [...]

Kay, being the awesome person that she is, nailed down an article for Issue 12 today that we’re very excited about. 12 is shaping up to be amazing, and we’re still waiting to hear back from a few people. As for Issue 10… I haven’t worked on it much. I’ve been feeling ill the last [...]

We have very little time today to work directly on actual issues of CG today; it was our last non-work day before we leave for WorldCon so we had to make the most of our time to get ready. We went shopping, we packed, we cleaned. We got a lot done. The main issue-related things [...]

This is what happens when we really focus. With the goal of getting just about everything for I9 wrapped up a week early – thereby enabling us to get as far ahead on Issue 10 as possible before WorldCon – I forbade myself most of my usual distractions and really threw myself into it. Not [...]

Today has been a very strange day. Kay’s mother is in town, so Kay took our son and her mother to western MA yesterday. I’ve been alone all day, which has enabled me to be very productive… but it’s a very weird feeling, being in the house all by myself all day. For some reason [...]

So the editing is………… done*. The * means that it’s not done, but it’s so close it might as well be. Another hour will do it. We’re just too tired. Been a very long day; personal reasons. I heard back from a few contributors regarding the edits. Most everything is fine, just a couple small [...]

10 miles behind me and 10,000 more to go

Really made a ton of progress today on the editing! All the Issue 9 content is complete except 2 stories, and those are both half-finished; Kay will wrap up one of them tomorrow, and I’ll do the other. Assuming the various contributors get back to us fairly quickly, we should be able to have the [...]
