TGIF

TGIF. Truer words have not been spoken. Managed to squeak out another rejection this morning from Shock Totem. Sent the story on to Necrotic Tissue. We'll see how that turns out. I did manage to write a flash story yesterday afternoon. That was fun. I hadn't written flash since the story I wrote for 52 Stitches in late October (Dang has it really been that long?).

I am planning on nothing today but getting groceries and having a drink, or four (I really don't do that anymore, only the first two taste good.) I might get some writing in but I don't know what on. It could be a book or it could be another flash piece.

I am really looking forward to this weekend. My wife and I get to go out on a date and we are going to go antiquing (there is a big show in Des Moines this weekend. We try to go every year but we missed it the last two, I think.) Other than that I am ready for January to be over with and start February on a happy, acceptance filled- rejection free, note (Hah!)

Hope everyone enjoys their weekend as much as I am planning to.

Best of luck with Necrotic Tissue; at the very least they send great comments. But I smell acceptance.

Have fun antiquing. Always good story ideas in antiques--and I know how nice it is to get away with the wife when you have kids.

You have a great weekend Aaron, and you are right there is nothing like looking at a 150 year old chest of drawers and wondering what has been stuffed in them at one point.

Antiqueing is fun! My grandmother co-owned an antique mall for something like 30 years, so I grew up knowing how to move furniture, which is a good skill to fall back on if the writing doesn't take.

Good luck with Necrotic Tissue!

TGIF indeed.

Enjoy your weekend. :)

I'm expecting my rejection from Shock Totem very soon as well. ;) Now I'm in the mood to do a little antiquing myself. We never by anything, but love to look.

My official writing table is an 1820-50 desk with a fold out top and some really cool marquetry on it. It isn't in great shape but it sure inspires.

I'll be working harder this weekend than I do during the week. Chinese New Year is coming!

Jamie Eyberg said...

Happy New Year then. I need to get some water chestnuts and bamboo at the store tonight.

Oh...

I misread. Thought it was "A Continuity of Perks" and was wondering what your perks were. Kind of a let down...

Felicity Dowker said...

Keep on truckin', Jamie! I hear ya on the rejection blues, but they always lift eventually if you just keep slogging away (as I know you will). Hope the antiquing was wonderful.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Paul- the only perks I offer are friendship and an occasional read for an ongoing story you may have trouble with. Sorry to disappoint.

Felicity- I can't imagine you are having too much of the rejection blues right now but thanks anyway.
