I have started a love letter that is actually a story. Or a story that is actually a love letter. Either way, I think it’s definitely worth writing, and maybe even worth reading.
Meanwhile: According to Duotrope, I’ve had stories out for 198, 78, 78, and 13 days. One of those 78s is driving me crazy, because the stated turnaround time is 20-30. Le sigh. I could query, but I would hate to be that person who queries and irritates the editor and gets an annoyed rejection as a result. So I’ll wait.
Nearly a year without a pro sale. As Wendy pointed out recently, March was a long time ago. (February in my case.) Still, I’m buoyed right now. Diving back into Lightspeed, working on novels and short stories, settling into a new life of heretofore unknown comfort and domestic happiness.
I’ll try to get back to blogging here more regularly. If you’re itching for writing-related posts, add Inkpunks to your RSS feed. I blog there once a month, along with a mess of amazing newly-pro writers and editors, who I count among my dearest friends.
That’s what I’m up to. How about you?
