Early AM insomnia. Arms hurt. Four rejections this week:

F&SF: “nice writing but . . . ” from JJA. I miss the “alas”es from GVG.
Arabella: “elements that appealed but . . . ”
NFG: “grabbed the attention of the editors but . . .” they’re also willing to see a rewrite, which is something.
Fantastic: “closed to subs until 2005”


In other writing news, the editor of Scrybe Press said he’s going to try to get Carrie Hall to do the cover art for “Ascendancy of Blood” and wants to publish it as a chapbook. I’m excited to see how that’ll turn out.

But, no new words. No rewrites. I hurt too much. I shouldn’t even be typing this journal entry. Stupid extra rib.

    Okay, so the insomnia sucks… hope that goes away soon.

    The Fantastic thing has been big news over on some of the mailing lists the last few days.

      Yep, Fantastic appears to be well and overbought for a while. Crossing that one off my list to submit to for a good, long time. Ah well.

        No kidding! At least you were still in the catagory of getting the notification. I feel for the people who submitted just as the notice was put up and may never know what’s going on with their stuff.
