So, yeah, LSS. I just can't give it my all. And I feel a little bit sorry that that means I won't be up on the reading for when all the awards lists start to come out. I like being on top of the reading in order to be part of the discussion. So I think what I'm going to do is read all the stories in the spreadsheet that have a 5 by someone. Or at least a couple of 4s and a 4.5. It means I won't be finding my own gems this year and I won't be influencing the outcome for LSS other than to maybe reinforce some and edge out others when we do averages. But I think I'm ok with that in that that's the best I can do this year.
The publishing new year has kinda already come and we have already started receiving material for 2011. I could in theory start over pretty soon and instead be up to speed in 2011. Especially since I've got a bunch of travel coming up and will need reading for that. Sometimes you gotta just draw a line under it.
