weekend update

I always loved the old weekend updates from SNL. It was that and then bed half the time because the rest of the show was all downhill from there.

I don't know where that came from.

My weekend and the week that was, let me see, what the heck went on in the world that is Jamie Eyberg. Uhm, yeah.

Okay, I've got it, not a whole lot. got a couple of thousand words written in my YA rewrite. Wrote a flash piece that I sent off to the new Dogs: the wet and dry anthology called The Proposal, it was fun and I hope to hear back from them soon although it wouldn't bother me a whole lot if I didn't. Heard back from Night Train magazine with a clever little rejection and other than that nothing. not a darn thing went on in my writing life. I was so much more productive last year.

This week I need to work on my outline for NaNo and keep plugging away on my rewrite. hopefully I hear back from some markets, hopefully with good news.

Embrace the randomness, Jamie, EMBRACE it.

Well, not literally, because that would be strange. But you know what I mean. :)

I saw that Dogs anthology go up on Duotrope, and I don't know why it really amused me. I need to get out more.

Cate- it struck me as well. My wife is a huge dog lover and, while not a writer, I encouraged her to write something for it. She declined.

Carrie- My whole life is randomness, without it I have nothingness and I will take random over nothing any day.
