Football, HTML, and Writing

It's Superbowl weekend! Rah! I'm not exactly what anyone would call a fan (I only watch one game a year and my viewing is punctuated with questions as I don't fully understand the rules), but it's our tradition every year to have folks over to watch the Superbowl on our big screen TV. dude_the will be flying in later this evening, and Patrick is supposed to be driving up from New Orleans. There's some difficulty with the whole driving/car/transportation thing with him, so I don't know what's going on with that, but crossing my fingers he'll be able to make it. Kristin's also swinging by tomorrow for a Firefly viewing marathon. So, a nice full weekend coming up.

Redid my website. Decided to move away from my framed navigation approach and experiment with Cascading Style Sheets. Had to still do an inline frame in order to link to LJ and my Guestbook, but overall I'm pleased with the results. Although I could only test it on IE and Mozilla/Firebird.

If anyone's using a different browser (Opera, aol, Netscape, etc.), I'd appreciate it greatly if you could visit my site and let me know if there are any glaring layout issues or errors. A note in my guestbook would be appreciated too.

Writing stats:

Despite the cotton wads between my ears, thanks to the Clonazepam I've been taking daily, I finished the rewrite of my Urban Fantasy piece. I totally rewrote the ending, lopped off about 500 words, and it's out. Fwoosh. Fly little story, fly!

Got a note from the editor of Paradox. Due to financial constraints, he's switching production from quarterly to bi-annual and that means my story "The Tiger Fortune Princess" which was slated for publication November of this year, will be pushed back to June of 2005. Sigh. Oh well, that's not the longest lead-time I've heard of. Hell, I waited two years to get word of a sale to Dreams of Decadence; I can wait a year and a half for publication in Paradox. But still . . . *twitch*

Matthew was generally ambivalent about the fantasy piece inspired by that Suzanne Vega song. I'm mulling over his suggestions to get to first draft state, then up to Critters it goes.

Received rejections from Argosy and two from the ELP library to round things out. But I'm pretty pleased with 2004 as far as fiction sales are going so far.
