I couldn't leave Kiki. She's doing much better, consistently, but that's only been over the past three weeks. Even now, with her medical issues, she's going to have to be boarded at the vet's if I ever do get the chance to go on vacation. But I'm so glad she's doing better that I can't think of anything else right now, am only glad that she's purring and breathing and sneezing in my face, as usual.
In addition to my camera being broken, the past few weeks have been busy! I've had two short stories published: "Break-Up Sex" in Clean Sheets: http://www.cleansheets.com/fiction/gaudet_02.22.12.shtml and "See You There" in Storylandia: The Wapshott Journal of Fiction: http://www.storylandia.wapshottpress.com/
I'm also in the midway-throes of the Artist Trust EDGE Professional Development Program for Writers, an 8-week boot-camp for the business-side of the writing life. This has been a fantastic experience so far, my cohort are incredibly talented and it's just such an honor to be a part of this program. It's like what I imagine the first couple seasons of Mtv's "The Real World" were like, the ones BEFORE the internet, where a group of people really bonded over a common goal and were actually friends.
More good news: I was invited (by PageBoy) to read at the APRIL LitCrawl at Bluebird Creamery/Brewery on Pike ST on Friday, March 30th at 7:30PM.
