May was S-l-o-w. Very Slow. I haven't heard back from an Editor since May 9. Nothing. So my tally for the month is one acceptance from Fissure magazine (very cool little chapbook magazine) and two rejections. I wrote a single little story all 100 words of it for Necrotic Tissue. They weren't open to submissions so I sent it on to Weird tales where they rejected it. Now I am back to waiting for NT to open up.
I have 10 stories out in sub land. 5 of which have been out for 100 days or more and several others creeping up on it. I have been working, not feverishly but at a steady pace to finish my latest draft of Big Chief's Gold, the MG book I have been working on. I think I have two more chapters to finish and then I can get to work on another completed manuscript. It will be a round robin event with my books this summer. Get done working on one, put it away for a time and work on another until I have one ready to go out the door. Then the fun begins.
I am planning on catching up on some reading today. I finished reading a John Saul book this weekend. Interesting, a fun read, but like many books I read I thought the ending was a little rushed. At least it had a good epilogue to tie it all together.
Until later, have a good Monday.
