Well, I’m going to pick out some new markets to which to submit my rejected story today. I hope to have those submissions finished by the end of the day. I’m only looking at simultaneous submission markets right now, obviously, but if that doesn’t work, I might just go ‘head and publish it on my fiction blog and see what you all think of it. Maybe you can see something wrong with it my wife and Sherri and I didn’t.
Other than that, not a lot going on. I had a vague idea for another story floating around in my head but it was gone before I could get to a notebook and pen to jot it down. Darn. I hate when that happens.
Over the weekend I did what I usually do over the weekend. Nothing. So, now you’re all filled in there. Feel better?
Um … lessee. Other than that, I don’t really have much to say. I promised Sherri I’d send her a synopsis of one of the book ideas I’ve been kicking around (a cowboy-dragon story). I haven’t done that yet. Sorry, Sher. I’m not sure why I haven’t done it. Just lazy.
I know I need to hop back onto my WsIP – editing the finished manuscript and writing the languishing one – but I haven’t done that yet. It’s not like I’m not writing though. I’ve done this story I’m submitting and I’ve written out some of the book stuff by hand. Like I’ve told you all before, I sometimes have a hard time just deciding what software to use to write this stuff in. I want the convenience of the all-in-one packages and the ease of the straight word processors and there just ain’t no middle ground on that. That’s no excuse, though. I gotta get up and get it done. I will, I promise. What else do I have to do?
Which means, of course, there’s still nothing on the job radar.
And last but not least, blogging has become … well, let’s just say it’s challenging. I’m dry with ideas for this space, and they don’t come easy lately. Nothing’s even broken loose from watching TV or reading your blogs. So … hm.
What’s up with you all?
