April recap

| April 30, 2012

By the numbers Stories out at the beginning of the month: 5 Acceptances received: 0 Rejections received: 2 (*) Resubmissions: 2 New Submissions: 0 Stories out at the end of the month: 5 The asterisk on rejections is because I technically received one rejection. The other “rejection” was in the form of an anthology I […]

Tinkering with things that are done

| April 23, 2012

I finished up the edited draft of my novella on Saturday morning, and gave it to Jeremy to look at. In return, he gave me the second draft of his novella (which goes back to the publisher soon for final edits). Almost as soon as my draft was out of my hands, though, I had […]

Friday recap!

| April 20, 2012

This week, I scribbled about 650 words of a story on post-its and in E-mails to myself. It’s an interesting way of writing, especially because most of the words are small, discontiguous scenes.

Review and such

| April 12, 2012

Jumping on the Kanbanpad wagon

| April 4, 2012

Last week, I spotted a tweet from Carrie Cuinn about Kanbanpad as an organizational tool. I’m a sucker for organizational tools, so I hopped on over to her blog post to read about it. She, in turn, had gotten her inspiration for using Kanbanpad for a writing organizational tool from John Remy. I liked what […]

Belated post about a review and other reading

| April 3, 2012

Since I was out of town when my latest review on Nevermet Press went live, I didn’t post about it. But you can find my review of Ghosts By Gaslight there! I gave myself a short break from reading for reviews so that I could finish the Hunger Games series. I read Catching Fire and […]
