June in retrospect

I really can't believe June is gone already. It seems like just yesterday it was March. This year is breaking the speed limit or something. I don't know what.

So, let me think of what June was. Okay, after checking my records I wrote one flash piece for Shroud and edited and edited and then I edited some more, but I finished with my edits on Beneath These Walls. I also managed no rejections and two acceptances, although one was a reprint. I have, as of this morning, 11 stories out in sub land. I read two books this month and started a third (it is non-fiction and probably wouldn't interest most of you).

Now I have goals for July. My first writing goal is to finish putting all of my edits into the computer and print a copy for my wife to read. I then plan on putting her suggestions to good use and then submit it. My second goal is to finish my Vermin story and submit it. My Third and final goal is to edit my MG book, let my wife read that, use her suggestions and start shopping for agents this month. I think I just crammed way too much into my month.

Let the fun of July begin!

Reprint sales count, darn it! Sounds like summer is your Editing Season. Good luck on the goals!

A hot, sweaty month ripe with mosquitos. A great incentive to stay in and write ; )

I read the word 'agents' and my stomach turned over. One of us has to get one soon or I am going to scream. Okay, Mr. Stone got one earlier this year and Carrie's had one for yonks, but it's time for another alumni to step out into the brave world of agented land. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

K.C.- It sure hasn't been a summer of writing, that is for sure. :)

Nat- Actually, today I have the windows open enjoying the cool breeze from the north.

Cate- I think it is just a matter of time before another one of us gets an agent.

Aaron Polson said...

Okay, 2-0? Awesome odds. Awesome.

I bow to your acceptance/rejection ratio!

And on to July...CHARGE!

Jameson T. Caine said...

Sounds like a good month. Good luck with your Vermin story. I need to finish mine up very soon.

Ann Eyberg said...

ok... don't forget finish the basement, help wife finish scraping/painting house, potty train boy, help girl ride bike. I have to get some "payment" for my gratis reading service.:)

Jeremy Kelly said...

Good month! I see agents in your future.

Danielle Ferries said...

Those are some big goals for July. Congrats on the acceptances.

Carrie Harris said...

Good luck with those goals!

I'm not sure what a yonk is, but I'm crossing fingers that someone joins me in yonkland soon.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Aaron- Charge! indeed. On into the wild blue yonder that is July!

Jameson- May we both finish them in the next 2 weeks.

Ann- I haven't forgotten. Those were just the writing goals.

Jeremy- I hope many of us see them in our future. Along with contracts.

Danielle- You should see what August looks like. ;)

Carrie- Yonkland must be a wondrous place, where the flowers smell sweeter and the daily word counts are longer.

Hey guys!

I know some folks here who have gotten results with Male-Extra penis enhancement pills. Im just about to order as i've been hearing amazing results with it. But first off, I want to know if Male Extra does it work as good as they say it does?

I know 1-2 inches Penis growth is realistic and easily accomplished. But I'd like REAL FAST penis growth in the 5 inches range. Dont laugh, I want to have the best penis growth possible because my new girlfriend dated a friggin porn stud!

Guys here know what im talking about?

I want...no make that I NEED to know the best way to enlarge Penis. Male-extra pills promises 3 inches growth within several weeks or they return your money. So I guess that essentially means, if my penis dont grow real fast? They lose money, coz I got to use the pills at the same time get my money back right?

Does this seem like a scam?

Please reply at the soonest possible time!
I need to make a decision fast!

Im already sold on it to be honest, but I just need that one last push so I dont put this off any longer.


The advertisement for the pill I last saw at this site. I hope its still there.
