I need to get a NEA fellowship application together.

got my application in

for an opportunity which would be a boost for my writing career. We'll see what happens.

Some photo rejections and a story acceptance, a reprint back up on the web.

I need to be writing more though. Find myself a groove and get in it.

Lisa, T.J. and Ellen

Three successful writers with big stuff happening in February. I'll be posting reviews, book signings, etc.

Yes, soon.

Creativity quote for 1-09-11

GJM -- visual artist

Had a pic in The Shine Journal. Another work has been accepted for a journal's online cover! Yay!

Put 31 more photographs out there. Have another 11 ready; just need to find more journals that accept art.
Opened another email acct (not that I need another) but the only way I'm going to keep submissions straight.

The Best of Eclectic Flash available

Yep-- a work of mine in there.

Go here.

Invited to read

and I said yes. Something about the date was nagging me so I looked up the NJ event. Same day!

Well, the NJ event happens every month so I'm calling to see if I can reschedule.
