I finished revising the tiger story, and it’s up for crit on OWW. I’m planning a few crits for tonight and tomorrow, and I’m going to tinker with Hunting the Red because it’s almost right. 🙂 Then it’s outline work for Shadow of Blood because baby, it’s getting done. I’ll have a goals update shortly, but I have some pretty big wishes out there right now in the meantime. WotF is starting to respond to the 2nd quarter entries. I haven’t heard a peep yet, and I know the story isn’t perfect, so I’m hoping for another honorable mention. I have more hope in my Q3 entry. Then there’s the Parsec Short Story contest which has disappeared into the nether. I’m sure they’re just busy, but I have high hopes for that story and these guys are teaching a massive lesson in patience. 🙂 Then there’s the 6/30 deadline for Viable Paradise — to which I applied three months ago. So I’m really hoping for good news there.
I promise to stop checking my email every hour. I promise to stop obsessing over responses for which I have no control.
That’s the plan. 🙂 But I have to tell you, I’m pretty pleased at the Tiger Story. It’s almost there!
