Stuff pressing down. Stuff as in DEADLINES. Have some anthology submissions that have got to get out to the publishers, an application for a residency that needed to be in the mail yesterday (!), a grant application that I need to request and then return!
But on the other hand, I am the revision of one story away from having that short story collection (finally) finished and complete. Had cold-called a publisher who had said I could send it-- do I do that or send it to the agent I met this summer? Or do I make a second collection and flip a coin? Hmmm
And last night I got the beginnings of a children's picture book dealing with the civil rights movement and James Lawson's nonviolent resistance teachings.
