it is already Friday and it is supposed to be a real hot one this weekend. Probably the hottest days of the summer so far. At least I won't be working outside in it. I will probably be doing what I have been doing all week. Editing.

I haven't started any new stories this week although I did manage one rejection from Shimmer (my longest rejection time from them yet) I re-worked the story a little and sent it on to the Mo-con antho from Apex. We will see what Mr. Broaddus thinks of it. Probably not what he is looking for either, but we will see.

In the meantime I have looked at a friends book and discovered a new author I really want to read (will be ordering his new book coming out in October I believe) and have been started editing my MG book again. it isn't as bad as I thought it might be and I have certainly been away from it long enough to be objective. I think the third re-write may have been the charm for this book. Still, when I am done I will be taking anyone up on reading it and telling me what is wrong with it. This could be awhile yet. Don't worry, I will let you know when I am ready for that.

I can't believe that summer is drawing to an end and soon my daughter will be starting school again. It will be a change in the writing schedule, again. I am hoping for a good change that will allow me more time at the keyboard or with pen in hand. Summer is not good for my productivity. It is good for the kids. I just wish I could teach my 2 year old the finer points of a good fishing hole but he doesn't have the patience for it like his sister.

Hope everyone has a good weekend. See you on Monday, unless I hear some amazing news in the interim.

Don't you love when you get back into an MS and find it's not as bad as you'd been telling yourself-- and maybe even savable?

Have an awesome weekend!

Cate Gardner said...

Enjoy your weekend. No TGIF from me - it's the last two days of my holiday. Boo! Hiss!

Katey- it is a rare occasion. You have a great weekend as well.

Cate- Enjoy the last 2 of your holiday. You deserve it.

everyone is gearing up for school again. where did the summer go?

Fox Lee said...

Summer is far too distracting. Gardening alone bites into my time!

The two year old will come around, I hope. Max is three and would rather dismantle worms than fish. Sigh.

Samantha- I think it was on the good times express with no stops anywhere close.

Nat- my garden is embarrassing, except for my tomato plants, they look awesome.

Aaron- I wish I could teach my 6 yr old to bait her own hook. it would save me a lot of time.
