I've been spending the last week working on short fiction since I couldn't spend a long time at the computer. This turned out to be a great thing. I completed two adult mysteries and submitted a children's story. I received word that the children's story is seriously being considered :)
Another third story for grown-ups is printed and waiting for me to grade it with a red pen before the final polishing. I want to get it in the mail by Friday. My back is fine now so it's time to begin revising my novel.
After using my sister's Kindle, I finally ordered my own. It will be easier to get classics and other hard-to-find books than in the brick-and-mortar stores. Since it will also cost so much less, I couldn't justify waiting. However, I did buy Evanovich's new book Wicked Appetite last night so I know I will be shuffling between the old and the new form of reading. That relieves my guilt.
Finally, I read a good post at Nicole Ducleroir's blog "Consequences Tend to Snowball" and thought you would enjoy reading it if you haven't already.
