Busy day. I got four stories back in the mail:
- ”Dreamseer” to Black Gate
- ”Queen of Hearts, Hand of Fate” to Clarkesworld
- ”Testing the Waters” to Cemetery Dance
- ”Proof of Devotion” (which will appear in Fabulous Whitby very soon!) to Best New Paranormal Romance 3.
I also confirmed with two editors that it’s okay to simultaneously submit a story that editor #2 requested after I’d already sent it to editor #1. Editor #1 says it’ll be in one of two anthos; editor #2 says it’s a strong possibility for hers.
I didn’t get my 2K done last night (it was just shy of 1400 words when I called it quits), but I haven’t glued my butt to the writing chair yet. Gack!
Update: Apparently I am coming down with a cold, if this sore throat and general muzziness is to be heeded. Crap. Here I wanted to push and hit 5K each day this weekend, and now I might be sidelined. I got only my minimum 500 words done tonight, and now I’m heading to the bedroom to fall over.
So that’s it. If anyone tells you the life of a writer is glamorous, they’re lying through their teeth.
Either that, or I’m doing something wrong…
