Going to try something during this NaNoWriMo season. Since everyone else is pumping out words, I thought I'd take this opportunity to work myself back into professional-caliber productivity. Therefore, I'm locking myself in the library, away from television, skunk, and husband during the day. I'm also going to curtail my LJ time, so if I make fewer appearances in y'alls comment sections, don't take it personally. Writer at work and all.
- 10-day personal rejection from Jason Sizemore at Apex Digest with invite to submit again.
- Also news that Jason has nominated by story "Oranges, Lemons, and Thou Beside Me" (slated for publication in Apex #4) for a Pushcart! I think it's terribly unlikely I'll be one of the selected, but I'm floating on a happy cloud to be nominated. Jason absolutely rawketh! Squee!
2000 on another fairy tale re-telling, this time of Beauty and the Beast. After editorial feedback and discussion, the determination was that "The Better To . . . " was one for the the "still needs work" pile, and instead of facing another rewrite with it (I cannot express how very sick I am of it at this point), I decided to pull out the ole drawing board. So far, this one's going so much smoother. Or maybe it's me being holed away in the library.
