I think this should be a pretty good week, aside from today where getting another year older just sucks. The good news is that my wife should be bringing home chicken for dinner which mean a) I get chicken for dinner and b) I don't have to cook.
I am planning on working on my current project, full steam ahead, until I blow a head gasket and sputter to a stop.
I also expect to hear back, good or bad, from about four markets this week. I am right in their average response time or well beyond. If this year is like last year this will be a dry period with March getting drier (I only heard back from one market last March, my inbox was incredibly quiet)
In case you aren't signed up with Michael Knost for his newsletter (He is an editor at Shroud as well as a good guy) he has a book coming out with articles written by some of the biggest names in horror. It looks pretty interesting. More information here.
Now, go forth and conquer the English language (Or butcher it as I am prone to do) but enjoy it either way.
P.S. I am serious, if anyone wants my recipe for Brownie Pudding just flit me an e-mail at jeyberg74 @ gmail (dot) com. All I have to do is paste it into a reply for you.
UPDATE: just sold a story, Beneath the Willows, to Bards and Sages for their October issue. Maybe this day won't suck too much after all.
