Well, I’m back into the groove, it seems. I’m all set to finish a story today, and since this is Saturday, it means I’ll have finished the story in one week. Yay! Another goal met. Now I just have to do it. And then do it again next week…but let’s not jump the gun. One goal at a time, right?
Also, I’ve installed DropBox on my computer and keep all my writing there now. I just did this, so I can’t say yet how it’s going, but I’m guessing it’s a good thing. When my hard drive crashed, many people in my writing group mentioned how they have DropBox to protect them from such tragedy. Well, it kinda feels like locking the barn door after the horse is stolen (yeah, I’m old enough to have heard that one as a kid), but I’m preventing the next horse from being stolen. I guess that analogy is getting pretty stretched, but hey, work with me here–my head is turning into mush in Week 5 of the Write-a-thon.
I just updated “My Writing” page, but don’t yet have the date for my latest story yet. Still, it felt pretty great to update that with another writing credit, even if it’s not quite there yet.
Finally, I have news I’m dying to share…but not just yet. Be prepared for more good news in the future, but for now just feel the anticipation! And doesn’t that feel good, too?

Hey, cheers for the story sale! And more cheers in advance for your mysterious good news! Oh, also for finishing a story this week! Yay!
Thanks Jen. It feels pretty good to get life back on track a bit, and to meet some goals again. Congrats to you on “She Walked…” coming out! I’ve written a few things with little or no speculative element, but I’ve yet to send one out. I commend your bravery, madam!
Why, thank you! Submitting stories does require a rather exhausting amount of courage, does it not?
Did you finish the story? 😀
Yes! It was Saturday evening when I finished, and it’s certainly “first draft” quality…but it IS done. And in less than a week. Yay! Today I started wrestling with this week’s tale. And how is YOUR final week (gasp! Already?!?) shaping up?
It’s fabulous! Chuck Palahniuk is one of the most sensitive, thoughtful critiquers I have ever encountered. It’s a tall order to come into this class after five weeks of stellar instruction and still be able to teach us things that we wouldn’t/didn’t figure out for ourselves, but he’s doing so.
Did you see the lineup for next year? 🙂
No, it’s not posted yet, not on either CW or C-SD sites. Sigh. Have YOU heard…?
It still sounds so heart-achingly wonderful that I can’t wait to hear all about it. I’ll even give you a day–okay, two–to recover before I bludgeon you with email. 😉
Oh! I just found it here: http://acaciatrilogy.blogspot.com/2012/07/clarion-west-2013.html
Amazing! I want! I want! I’m writing now….
