I had a short story I was very happy with that was submitted to a magazine in February. The magazine is supposed to have an eight week response time, but I haven’t gotten a response, not even a rejection. I feel like if I was going to be accepted, they would have done it by now, but I thought the same about being rejected. I’m pretty sure I’ve waited as long as I’m expected to wait. Is it okay for me to move on? Should I keep waiting? I fear that until I hear one way or the other I’ll be caught in this limbo. It’s a good thing there are other stories to circulate!
I just finished reading the first draft of Underside, my fantasy novel in progress. There is a shockingly vast gulf between the book I thought I’d written, and the book that I rediscovered over the last few days. I have a lot of work to do.
Our Thursday night gaming group is taking a break from Pathfinder to try out other games for a while. This week will be either Microscope or Fiasco. I’m voting for Fiasco. I played it at Gen Con last year, and I’m ready to jump on the chance to play again. Last night I watched the Tabletop episodes as an entertaining way of reminding myself of the rules while trying to address my sock issues. Both goals have been attained.
The key to a good day is to set some attainable goals, and then attain them. Goal #1, dress myself and pack a lunch. I’m setting myself up for real success here.
