Wacom Inkling Pen

Well, this isn't a full out review of the inkling, because I've only had it a few days.  I had some trouble exporting from it on my old version of Adobe Suite, but I have CS4 at my office, and that seems to be working fine.

I used it on trace paper today at work.  It wasn't as pleasant of a sketching experience.  Here are a few shots from today:

So, I did what I usually do in times of stress.  I buried my head in the literary sand.  This time, instead of just voraciously consuming books, I actually sat down to write quite a few short stories this summer.  I also polished off a lot of pieces from the past few years and hit the slush pile.   Newly shiny drafts of horror, light sci-fi, and urban fantasy in hand, I've been scouring the internet and twitter for places to submit my work while looking ahead to what else may be on the horizon.  A
