Back in Atlanta after visiting the in-laws in Illinois. There's a dead zone smack dab in the middle of Kentucky where I can get cell reception but no GPS or data connectivity, either 3G or 1X, on my Droid. Weird. I thought data and GPS rode on the cell signal, so I was rather baffled to find that I had full cell service but nothing else. My Droid found it confusing too and rebooted itself a couple times until I told it to quit already.
Didn't get nearly as much done over the holiday as I'd hoped, of course, but in what might be a first, I did manage to get some writing done. Being able to take out my phone—and not have to boot my laptop—to write a paragraph here or there, really ups the convenience factor. Droid win.
Managed 1Kish new words on the editing pass/massive rewrite of "Rampion." I'd say I'm in the final stretch, but I sort of feel I've been there for so long that I've lost touch with the meaning of that term.
And sold Spanish language reprint of "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest; Red Mask, Black Mask, Gentleman, Beast" to Cuásar, slated for their special edition issue #50. Spanish is another new language that my work will appear in—making it the fourth for this story and my seventh overall. Coolio.
Thanks, Saladin! I really enjoyed meeting you at the Nebs too.
Re: Foreign language sales
I've had a good run recently with "Sinner" but it's usually fits and starts with foreign language sales. These last few have been a combination of cold queries from editors (woohoo!) and responses to subs I sent months and months ago. I use Douglas Smith's Foreign Language Market List for submission information—an excellent resource that's updated frequently.
