Yesterday I slept for nearly twelve hours. Last night, I couldn’t fall asleep, and then when I did, I promptly woke up a mere five and a half hours later. If averaged together, that’s two good night’s sleep, but it sure doesn’t feel anything remotely related to “good.”
Stupid dysfunctional circadian rhythms.
Mailed off the signed contracts to Realms. Apparently, they pay “on acceptance” rather than “on publication,” which is totally sweet. I can expect a nice, fat check from them in the next couple months. That goes a long way to making up for their oftentimes lengthy response times, at least in my book. The contracts seemed to imply that both “The Storyteller’s Wife” and “Returning My Sister’s Face” would be in the Feb. 2005 issue. *blink* I wonder if that’s a typo. “Storyteller’s Wife” is a novelette and “Sister’s Face,” while still comfortably in “short story” range, isn’t exactly short clocking in at 6.3K.
Regardless, I’m thrilled that I’ll be between their covers so soon. Soon, of course, being defined relatively in this biz.
i’m loving the little writer icon with da little brown skunkie 😉
Thank you! I created a mess of them when I found myself bored with a conspicuously absent muse. Ah, time-wasters on the Internet, gotta love ’em.
Major congrats girl!!! I will be sure to buy that issue when it’s out 🙂
I wish I could sleep that long…I’m lucky to sneak in 5 hours.
“I wish I could sleep that long…I’m lucky to sneak in 5 hours. “
I just wish I could achieve a happy medium with this sleep thing!
Hey, haven’t read your stuff yet but I’m looking forward to it. Congrats!
ummm nothing like the smell of a nice, fat check cooking for breakfast!
Thanks! Most places pay on publication and have fairly long lead times, so this is a very nice, very unexpected change. $$$!
Morpheus is teh s uck
He didn’t visit me last night, either. ::sympathies::
Re: Morpheus is teh s uck
This is intolerable! Wonder if there’s a supervisor or someone who can be complained to.
Sympathies definitely all around!
