Accomplished some Christmas shopping over the weekend. There's still much to do. I need another week in December to prep for the holidays! And I think I might be coming down with something flu-like, despite having received one of the rare and exclusive flu shots. Ugh.
Up to twelve crits at Critters on my current offering. Getting some mixed feedback, most of which I'm inclined to discount. But there is something which is having me pondering a major overhaul--exploring one of the character relationships deeper. But I'm not really sure how far I want to take it. Plus the damn story is already coming in at 10K, manuscript count.
Finished, at long last, my review for Tangent of this week's Sci-Fiction story and emailed it off to ye olde editor.
Received a 33-day "clever but not for us" from On Spec. I think I need to really mull over whether it's worth my while spending the oversea postage on the handful of foreign markets that don't take electronic submissions.
Word count: 150 + (-)500.
Had an excellent brainstorming session with Matthew on the SF piece. Hacked off one of the sub-plot aspects of the story in order to give it better focus. Much happier with this approach. My hubby is quite clever. I think I'll keep him.
