- Annie Dillard, The Writing Life
Here I am, it's approaching 7:00 p.m. I need to get to translating, and I have nothing to blog about. Today's big challenge at work was starting the training of my newest assistant, a young man from Haiti. I shouldn't have to train new assistants at this time of year, as the ones I trained in the fall aren't supposed to have expired yet. But I've been running through assistants a little more rapidly than usual of late. One would almost think there was something wrong with my management style... No, no, that's ridiculous.
Anyway, I praised Robert Mullin's space fantasy novel Bid the Gods Arise a while back, and for a very short time you can get the Kindle version free here. I think you'll enjoy it.
