Legislative Session. Eek. And free advance screening tix to Pan's Labyrinth

For all you Atlanta locals: fosteronfilm is giving away advance screening tickets to Pan's Labyrinth for next Wednesday (the 17th). Check out his website for details.

And the session begineth. So far . . . on day three . . . it's not that bad. It's very hopping; I worked from noon 'til 6ish on Sunday and have stayed late every night this week (and expect to stay late every night until the session ends), but I haven't felt overwhelmed or unduly stressed. Although I did make a blunder yesterday that required six bills to be re-done. The Georgia legislature has some spelling peculiarities, and I didn't realize that we spell "statewide" with a hyphen: "state-wide." And those six bills were all drafted using the same template I'd edited. Doh!

Won't be forgetting that one anytime soon.

I got home last night just in time to get ready for bed, but it wasn't that troubling. fosteronfilm was at an IMAGE salon, so he wasn't home anyway. Although, poor Hobkin. He was a little anxious at the change in routine. I startled him when I came home--he's not a brave beastie--and he bolted for the hutch. Unfortunately, he was in such a hurry, his aim was off. He bonked right into the hutch leg, missing the opening completely. Didn't phase him, though. He bounced off and then scampered under it. Silly fuzzwit. I'm worried that one day he'll concuss himself doing that.

Had some qualms about what the MARTA would be like late at night, both on the long waits front as well as the scariness one, but as it turns out, I haven't had to wait longer than ten minutes for a nighttime train, and the stations are well lit and still pretty populated at the times I've been riding.

   

Writing Stuff

No writing accomplished. No surprise there.


Published:
- My January Writing for Young Readers column, "A Writer's Resolution: I Will Submit." (With thanks to n_decisive for the inspiration on the subject matter.)


Received:
- Personal pass plus invite to try again from Escape Pod on a reprint. Snartleblast.
- Contract from Aberrant Dreams for "Living With a Shoulder Monster." Signed and sent back.
- Payment from Hub for "Wanting to Want." And I'm delighted the American dollar is so weak against the pound right now. I got a very favorable exchange rate.
