Continuing with the NANOWRIMO novel, which I didn't finish in November 'cause I was making bears 'cause that paid.

Sent out this wacky piece I wrote years ago. In rejecting it (also years ago), an editor made  some comments that I took as truth. I pulled it off that pile of stories (I chose 45 that I'm going to revise and send out first) with the intent of revising but I read it and decided that editor was wrong.

An acceptance from Pure Slush for another anthology.  Yay! I love the editor, Matt Potter!

Wrote an essay and sent it off

Scary because most things I've been submitting have been coming back. 

I'm excited to see if it makes the cut.

Got another to go revise.


Still writing.  I have never written past day 15.  So happy.


the writing is really good in some places. Some is key word.

I love it when I'm writing and my characters revolt against my character outlines/charts.

No, they're telling me. This is who I am.

My word count is way behind, but I'm writing. I am not good at managing my time; at the computer, I am so easily seduced by the internet.  (And I've got bears to make.)

But I wrote today and I'm happy with the words I got out.  Very happy, though they were few.

Tomorrow, I'll find a space of time to do it again.

Next day, repeat.  And then again.

Very slow start to this novel writing.

59 words in an hour.

Not good. (in the voice of the Russian guy in "2012")
