First I must get this done with: *grumbles at blogger* Their new bar at the top totally gets rid of my blogs title. How is that supposed to work? And it's not covering it either, it's just gone. Maybe I'll need to find a new blogskin that's more compatible. *shrugs*
Anyway, I received an e-mail on Friday. A drabble I entered in a contest a long time ago (which i didn't win the contest), will be published in the upcoming anthology entitled The Drabbler. I was quite shocked since someone else I knew who was going to have some drabbles published in this (the ones he submitted to the contest) was informed over a month ago. Better tardy in informing me, than never. The anthology will be published by Sam's Dot Publishing. It's due to come out October 1, 2004. It might be a small woohoo, but it's a woohoo nonetheless. :)
And then to dampen my mood I received a rejection from F&SF on Saturday. Why always Saturdays I ask? I even thought when I got the e-mail about the drabble, just wait, it's saturday tomorrow, my rejection letter day. Low and behold. I'd rather the rejections come on Wednesdays - I hate to hate Saturdays.
Well, that's all I got for now. Oh, my website might be down next week because I would love to do a major overhaul, password protect some stories that I intend to submit places. I'm probably going to make it more professional, even though NO ONE gave me any feedback. I am just talking to the internet waves. If only they'd talk back. Hm, that might be a story.
In novel news, the fight scene I have to revise has caused me to procrastinate some more. But I drew a map of my world. If I can get past the fight scene, and draw a map of Haven, then there shouldn't be too many more speedbumps for revising the first time through. Lots of work, but no one ever said it would be easy. happy reading and writing all!
