There they are

Writing Stuff

And the rejections start coming in:
18-day “Nice writing here but . . .” from F&SF. Sigh.
159-day form no from Cemetery Dance

But then we had blackberry pie. Everything is better with pie.

Must. Write.

  1. I am convinced that all of Cemetery Dance’s writing is done in-house, and that they pretend to accept submissions as part of some sinister plot I have yet to completely fathom. I suspect it has something to do with chicken, and that the Kennedy assassination figures in somehow, but I’m not quite sure how.

    Truer words were never spoken.

    Oh, sorry I missed meeting yesterday. Didn’t even know there was one until like 10am or so. Is there anything important I should know? @_@

      No problemo on the missed staff meeting. You didn’t miss anything except that registration is now at the Hilton–a new D*C hotel in addition to the Hyatt and the Marriott. But since I pick up your badge for you anyway, it doesn’t really impact you at all.

    Man, after 159 days, they should at least write you something personal. Pfft.

    We all need more sweet things

    (from Dreamwind the critter)

    My uni library has an online service where you can recommend books for purchase. One of my favourit requests ever went as follows:

    “Library needs more books on muffin making. Muffins are good. If everyone ate more muffins there would be world peace tomorrow.”

    Obviously the purchasing team liked this request, they immediately went out and bought 3 muffin books.

    I have to say I’m more of a muffin girl myself. Don’t get me wrong, pies are good, but muffins are better. At least that’s what I think. You don’t have to worry about the pastry for one thing. And the filling doesn’t fall out the sides while you’re eating muffins, which means you can snack on them in public without making a mess.

      Hee! What a coincidence! When I woke up, I thought muffins for breakfast would be yummy, so I baked up a batch of chocolate chip and lemon poppy seed for and me. Cosmic muffin synchronicity!
