It's been a pretty busy and exciting two weeks with lots of things going on. On Saturday, I celebrated International Women's Day together with the Filipina women of Stichting Bayanihan. It was a good day focussing on gender consciousness. Not too high threshold but with enough material to provide good food for thought.

This week, I received news that the ISF 2012 Annual Anthology with my story, 59 Beads, is now free to download from the ISF site. I'd like to acknowledge Roberto Mendes and Ricardo Loureiro for putting this anthology together.

I also received word that Decolonizing as an SF Writer, which first appeared simultaneously on The Future Fire Blog and Kate Elliot's blog, has been selected for inclusion in Speculative Fiction 2012:The Best Online Reviews, Essays and Commentary. The list of contributors has been released and is viewable here. I look forward to reading all the pieces selected.

I've also received the contract for Dagiti Timayap Garda, a short weird/horror story that I wrote which was inspired by the shapeshifting Tikbalang and monster stories from my childhood. I'm quite excited about this sale and look forward to when I can announce everything about it here.

And I am completing work on a short story and am also completing work on the final draft of my novella. I'm really excited about both of these stories as they are both rooted in indigenous culture and in the case of the novella--very much inspired by Filipino history.

I have an unexpected free day tomorrow and I hope to finish one of these two things by weekend. I think the short story first and hopefully the novella before Eastercon.

Thanks so much, Pam. It's been a very busy year. I've tried to prioritize writing as much as I can. I hope you're doing well too. I haven't been able to catch up as much as I want, alas.
