And lo, there was much holiday-related consumer activity. Our Christmas shopping is almost done, although I still don’t know what to get Hobkin.
The crits are in; tomorrow I start on my rewrite of “Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest etc.” Hoping to have it out the door by the end of this week.
– “Wanting to Want” is now out in the premiere issue of the new U.K. ‘zine, Hub. Yay!
– An invitation to submit to an anthology put out by a new publishing outfit. I recognize the name of one of the editors; I’m sharing a ToC with him in an upcoming issue of GrendelSong, and he dropped me a very nice email letting me know he enjoyed my story in GS#1. Pondering whether I’ll have time to put together a story by the deadline, since the first three months of next year are dedicated to the legislative session, and I wanted to try to do that whole novel thing again afterward. But I hate turning down an invite to submit anywhere.
– 100 on “By Oak, Bramble, and Metro.” At least they were constructive words. I think I’ve got a direction now for the ending. I think.
