somethings going on

got an email from Macabre Cadaver that my flash piece, Lullaby, made it into issue three. Pretty stoked to see who else is in it. If I got three more acceptances this week I would feel like Felicity or Aaron.

Just kidding. Still I feel pretty good to get two good things and no bad things in the old e-mail this week, even though the week isn't over.

The re-writing god was on my side yesterday. I think I will call that god Mark. Mark is a good name for a re-write god. Managed to get quite a bit of Chapter 3 re-written in my YA book. I know it will need another 5 or 6 (7, 8, 9) re-writes after this but so far it is going well. I told my wife that at the rate this is going my original 90 page manuscript is going to turn into 400 pages. Thankfully I have a laser printer (to those of you still using inkjet printers I am truly sorry).

Well hopefully Mark will stick around today and we can get more done.

Congrats on the acceptance--I have a little piece in MC #3, too. Glad to share a TOC.

Mark abandoned me yesterday. :)

Mark likes chicken dinners as sacrifices I believe, not 100% sure yet but I know ham is not it.

I need an altar to Mark so I can sacrifice some Sharpies or something. Because really, I can use all the editing help I can get.
