A day with the twins

After working more than 100 hours in 10 days, I took yesterday off and spent the day with the twins (almost five). If you ever need to gain perspective on what's really important in life, spend some time with kids. They'll make you realize what really matters!!!

Haven't gotten any writing done in quite some time...hopefully things will settle down at work in the next week, and I'll be able to get some writing done, and maybe get caught up on the other half a million things I've fallen behind on.

Bad Editor, Bad Editor

I don't mind rejection letters (much). God knows that I have enough of them to wallpaper this little shithole that I live in at least two times over...if not three, but if an editor is going to reject a story, they should at least send a rejection letter, even a form letter.

It's just rude to send back an author's manuscript (late, I might add) with nothing. Was it really that bad???

Nothing new to report

Contrary to popular belief, I am still alive. I've been putting in a lot of hours trying to get things put back together at the "real" job, and I've also been battling my normal early year head and chest cold. So, basically I've been medicating myself to the point that I'm almost blonde, working 8-10 hours, and then coming home to sleep.

Just hoping that this doesn't turn into pleurisy like it did last year, but I don't think it it seems to be leaving my system, and if I can get tomorrow off, I should be all better...

I must be crazy

Everyone's heard me bitch and moan about my job for a very long time...and as I've become more and more frustrated over the last few months, I finally decided to do what any irrational, illogical, and insane human being would do...I let them promote me!!!

Yes, I'm no longer the assistant manager at one of the busiest Subways in Colorado...I'm now the manager (or will be in a few days.) WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING???

Oh well, knowing me, and the way I thrive on stress, I'll start cranking out a story a week, and maybe I'll even finish the damn book.

One can hope, right? RIGHT? RIGHT?

P&E Poll

Preditors & Editors is having their annual readers' poll once again. Usually Sam's Dot puts together a ballot that we try to convince people to follow, but this year, I've been too busy and basically no ballot this year.

Someone has nominated me for writer and zine editor, so I'd certainly encourage people to vote for me, but you won't find me beating the bushes for voters, as this poll tends to favor romance writers, but hey, if I could get a top ten, that would be cool.

I would encourage people to vote for Sam's Dot and Nomadic Delirium, as I really like both of those publishers....
