Speedy-fast writing update

My cup overfloweth with hamsters. Ergo, quick post.

Took the MARTA into town today to visit with terracinque and to try to qualify for my dream editing job. I second-guessed myself into making the wrong call on three of the questions, which I just want to scream about now. I should've gone with my first knee-jerk instinct, dammit. Too anxious to blog about the details, but if I get this position, I shall be very, very happy. And if I stressed myself into bombing the qualifying test, I'm going to be very, very mad at myself. *twitch*

   

Writing Stuff


Published:
"Nobodies and Somebodies" is now up at Aberrant Dreams! Go read, yo!


Received:
- Payment from the fine Cricket folks for "The King of Rabbits and Moon Lake."
- Ditto payment from Writing-World for my first column installment.
- 2 55-day rejections from Escape Pod with lotso personal bits to ease the wah.
- 2-hour sale (Nope, that wasn't a typo. Two hours) to Escape Pod--or possibly its sister podcast, PseudoPod--of a reprint of "Returning My Sister's Face." I barely had time to log the submission before I got the acceptance back. Woohoo! Podcasty goodness!
