Writing it down

I keep getting ideas for blog posts but then I don't write them down.
So I forget.
Lately I've been pretty distracted and I've started reading a whole slew of books. As a result, I've not finished a book all month. I blame Sanctuary, by Billy Faulkner for starting it. I got stalled half-way through and started something new, and then, like a gambler trying to win back losses, started another book and another and another and another.
So in the effort of outing myself, here's a list of books that I'm "reading."
City under the Sand - Jeff Mariotte
Sanctuary - Bill F.
Lamb - Christoper Moore
(before Christmas, Sanctuary is actually August).
Writing Short Fiction - Damon Knight
The Fire in Fiction - Donald Maass
The Sincerest Form - Nicholas Delbanco
Novelist's Boot Camp - somebody Stone. Todd?
The Year of Living Shamelessly -
One Flew Over the Cookoo's Nest - Ken Kesey
Men and Cartoons - Jonathan Lethem
The Story er. (of the story? About the story?) - Writing group book with Stephen Dobyns in it, and a "City Codes" story that lured me in deceptively and actually isn't fiction about the building code... cheated! (It's The Story Behind the Story)
The Manual of Detection ($3.99) -
Terminate with Extreme Prejudice ($2.99)- Richard Belfield.
The Numbers Game - Michael Blastland -- didn't even notice that last name. So jealous! So perfect for a post-apocalyptic book's author name.
Forest Gate - er. Peter Akinti ($1)
Haunted - Chuck Palahniuk (yesterday)--the cover glows in the dark! So Jealous!
Well, that's what springs to mind right now.
And did I mention I have four different cups of coffee from four different places "started" in the refrigerator?
It's been a hectic month. Must be the shortness of it that throws everything off whack.
