Interview, meh

So the interview . . . went. I really, really hate phone interviews. I just can’t gauge anything with just a voice to work with. And I don’t make the best impression over the phone. I work best with body language and eye contact. Generally, I think it went okay. Probably closer to the “meh” side of okay than the “!!” side. We’ll see.

Finished the rewrite on the folktale after several more passes, packaged it up to go to Cricket, and then received six more Critters critiques, including a couple that make me want to go back in and do another several passes. Urg. Tear into the submission envelope, or just let it go as is? I hate second guessing myself.

Also received the contract from benpayne for “The Life and Times of Penguin” that’s scheduled for issue #18 of Andromeda Spaceways. Signed and sending it out to Aussie-land today. And I saw on their website that they’ve posted the cover art for #18. Pretty:

    I’m sorry I didn’t have time to review your story, Eugie. I did read it, though, and I didn’t think it needed much improvement, at least for your target audience. As an adult, I would’ve preferred a less perfect protag with a growth arc, but I don’t think that’s relevant here.

    You made me tear up again, damn you. You’ve mastered the manipulation of your readers’ emotions. How do you do it?

      No worries, Brit. I got deluged by crits this time around.

      My story made you teary-eyed? Really? Huh, I didn’t expect this story to do that to folks, but you’re the second reader to say that. Woot!
