It is far too early to be awake. But my sleep cycle appears to be fubared. Not sure why. ‘Course it doesn’t help that Hobkin woke me up at 6:30 by walking over my head . . .
After a whirlwind weekend full of people and events, everything’s back to quiet. Hobkin was remarkably unaffected by the influx of new people into “his” territory. He stomped at Patrick a few times, but didn’t seem to mind either him or Glenn. And he didn’t seem too miffed with us for being out for a few hours on Saturday. Maybe he’s mellowing out as he ages?
34-day rejection from Futurismic. The editor continues to really like my work and invites me to submit again, and yet no sale. Alas.
Wrote and published my review of Strange Horizons stories “Magic in a Certain Slant of Light” by Deborah Coates and “Dog” by Jenn Reese for Tangent.
I’m quite delighted with the artwork for “The Storyteller’s Wife” that Realms of Fantasy commissioned (by Heather Hudson). Can everyone find the character inspired by Hobkin? :
On the WIP front, writing is much like exercising. I’m finding that I need to increase my word count slowly. Having a hard time maintaining a sense of flow, although I have managed to achieve it a couple times now with this most recent work.
