Over at they must need bears, Elizabeth bear is involved in an end-of-novel deathmarch/angel wrestling/ deathmatch. This is why I enjoy reading her blog so much: her courage in showing the writing life in all its blood-and-guts glory. No swanning around in coffee shops reading Baudelaire round these parts..
So spare a thought for ebear today, while you're going about your day, typing with your unblistered fingers. Go Bear!
