Worked a little bit on my 2012 A.D. story. It doesn't have a title yet but bringing about the end of the world is kinda fun. I hope to finish it sometime this weekend and then have it sent off by the end of next week. (You will note how I am setting my sights low and taking my time)
Also managed to go deer hunting yesterday. I think I managed to walk about seven miles through the timber and I saw a lot of deer, unfortunately for me and fortunately for them, they saw me first so the only shot I got off was at one on a dead run (no, he wasn't a zombie deer) at about 60 or 75 yards. I would have to be a lot better shot with a handgun than I am to hit that target, and I don't care how big the critter is.
Other than that I heard nothing from any editor yesterday, although Michael Knost said that he broke his own record yesterday and accepted two stories yesterday. Unfortunately, I don't have anything out to him right now. Also apex is running a new blog today. One of their editors is talking about what it is like for her to go through the slush pile. Slush Lessons:
Well here is to a productive second day of the year and I wish all of you a merry weekend before the holiday season is officially over and we all must get back to normal.
