It looks like I am going to get a lot done this week and very little of it will be writing. I hope to get a couple of hundred words knocked out today before my boy wakes up (although he had me up half the night so he might sleep until noon) I just removed a story from consideration from Coyote Wild because they seem to have gone into hibernation of some sort. I looked the story over and sent it off to Midnight Echoes. Felicity said they were offering quick responses but I have a feeling that her stories get sent to the top of that marketplace and don't linger in the slush for very long.
In other news I said I was going to get a lot done this week and I should probably expand on that. My house isn't finished. I have drywall to hang, stairs I need to re-tread and put risers on. Trim to install and I would like to frame up a bedroom in the basement but I don't know if I will get to that. There is also some wiring to do but I really don't want to start that until all of my framing is done. My wife is home this afternoon (we hope) and this weekend on call so we can't do anything anyway so I just as well work on the house. That and the temps are supposed to be well above freezing so I can set my saws up outside and not make the mess inside (that is the theory).
Well, I have taken up enough time here. I am off to knock out the chapter I am working on and try to get into the next one. I thought up a couple of tangents that could potentially draw this story into novel length. It will also bring in a supernatural element to the story. I look forward to seeing where this road takes me.
Happy Wednesday everybody.
