Head better

I think my headache is getting better. I hope it's a trend. Fell asleep pretty early, almost right after dinner, and woke up for an hour or so at around ten--my recent standard operating procedure. But, on the whole, I got a lot of sleep. I think that might be contributing to my overall state of "my head doesn't hurt as much."

During my brief waking period, I watched the second half of Michael Moore's 1997 The Big One. There was much giggling. Phil Knight, the CEO of Nike, actually granted Michael Moore an interview. I'd almost feel sorry for Knight if he wasn't such a schmuck.

Writing Stuff:

The editor for issue #14 of ASIM sent a progress report to the contributors. It's going to the printers in the next week or so, and contrib. copies and payment should be out mid-August. Sweet. She also included a larger .jpg of the cover:

My name's on it! My very first time on a magazine cover.

Also received:
- A postcard from Cricket informing me that my most recent submission has been safely received.
- A critique from K.D. Wentworth from the Writers of the Future Contest for "Gifts Not Asked For" (as well as news that my Honorable Mention certificate will be coming in a separate mailer . . . yadda yadda ya). She said it "almost" made it into the finals round, which was both encouraging and deeply, deeply depressing.

Dragged out an old story concept from years ago, dusted it off, and am now seeing if I can't salvage it. 1700 words so far. I've got four fabulous characters and an excellent setting, but I can't seem to decide on a plot. Gurgle.
I'm feeling:
hopeful hopeful

Now my head hurts. I think I'm coming down with a sinusitis.

Weee I might have to pop into a bookstore and make a purchase of that one, since my subscription has run out :)
