2000 words into a new children’s fairy tale. Started it today, and zero draft finished today. Gotta love it when the words flow like that. I had Matthew do first reader duties and will give it a re-write tomorrow based upon his suggestions. Then up into the Critters queue it goes.
Glad to have finished something. The novella is floundering and the short story that I’m within spitting distance of finishing just will not sing to me. Feeling my muse fragment has been frustrating. But something got finished. Whew.
Got the contract from the In the Outposts of Beyond anthology today via email. There was a typo in it (involving the pay rate, so it was rather important), so I queried the editor about fixing it. Haven’t heard back yet. And he spelled my name wrong in his initial salutation to me, but spelled it right everywhere else. Urg. Makes me nervous whenever I see my name misspelled. I mean, one of the big things I’m going for here is seeing my name in print. It would be terribly depressing if the damn thing weren’t spelled right.
