Okay, so it's definitely not Monday. Nor is it the week I swore I was going to post the more extensive blog; but, I'm going to at least get something longer than 140 characters posted tonight.
Updates in the world of writing:
I had 4 deadlines for story submissions this month, the first of which has already come back with a rejection. That's okay with me honestly, because it means I've now got a Christmas themed story I can off for free download come Black Friday. ^^ You heard me correct *frowns* or read me correctly...? Anywho, as a result of Peppermint being rejected from the anthology it was created for, I now have a 5400 word short story that's all pretty. Just need to create a cover for it and give it one more read through for editing purposes, and it'll be released into the wide world of the interwebz in a few months.
Story #2 is currently out, awaiting a verdict. *crosses fingers*
Story #3 went to the editors of awesomeness last night. *frets*
Story #4, well, we've been having some issues. I had it almost completed, and ready for the editors, when my technology decided it wasn't worthy, and proceeded to delete it from all save points. I'm still not sure how my laptop, desktop, and flash drive coordinated this mass deletion; however, this means I've been forced to start from scratch on story #4.
So, we started over, and it's taken a complete different direction. Only the theme has stayed the same, everything else is entirely new. ^^;
I've got some book recommendations I want to babble about, but I think those are going to have to wait for tomorrow after work. I'm sleepy, and I have to be up in a little over five hours for work.
*toddles off with a wave*
