Productive Weekend

This was a productive weekend. Saturday The Other Half and I had already agreed to stay home for the day and relax, due in part to all the running around we did on Friday. Thus, I was able to make several passes at Ground Zero and get it down to manageable size. I'm letting it a sit for a day or so before another polish and then off it goes.

Today was another day where I worked on several different stories as the day progressed. In the morning I dabbled with an unnamed flash piece. In the afternoon I worked on a story called Valley of the Splintered Oaks (which was once known as Wrong Turn in Dutch Hollow) and a new one entitled Midnight in the House on Whispering Hill, though that name is subject to change. Then this evening it was another writing marathon (1200+ words) on a new piece called Church of the Deviate Minds.

No rejections or acceptances this weekend, but I expect to hear soon from something. I have two subs that have been out for 97 days each and another two that have been out for 75 days each, not to mention the story for the Time in a Bottle antho, which is now at 125.

For some ungodly reason, I have managed to develop a sore throat over the last two days. I can feel it worsening with every hour. I only hope I can get some sleep tonight and that it won't be too bad come morning.

A free Saturday to edit sounds like a blessing. I haven't had one of those in a while.

Take a spoonful of honey. Or, if you think it's a cold, rinse with salt water to kill germs.

Wow, sounds like a productive weekend. I'm with Benjamin, though, in that weekends are for doing the stuff I didn't get done during the week because of the paying work.

Sounds like a wonderful weekend. Hope the throat feels better. I think editors are holding our material on purpose. I have a half dozen or more that have been out for between 100-180 days right now.

Ooh, I forgot all about that 'Time in a Bottle' antho... Wish I'd sent something off to them. Good luck.

My horrible time travel story is out to Time in a Bottle, so they can just keep it as long as they like. But for your sake, I hope you get good news soon. :) I hope you get to feeling better soon too.
