Apart from yesterday's rant, I haven't blogged since November. At least I am consistent in my neglect of this blog.
I suppose I've been otherwise busy.
I wrote a sequel to Some Things Missing From Her Profile
. I submitted it to StoryHack (which originally published Some Things
). I've been trying to write this sequel since 2017. I only finished it twelve hours before submissions closed on January 1st. Since I perfect as I write, only the last few pages were "first draft." A few days later I sent a revision, which was graciously allowed. I am awaiting judgment now.
Then I wrote a story for an SF anthology about asteroids. Submissions for that closed on March 1st. Also awaiting judgment.
Meanwhile, word is that the Pluto anthology, which will include a story of mine, has resumed production. Presumably that means the Luna anthology, to which I also submitted, has also resumed production; but no official word on that, nor on whether my Luna story has even been accepted.
Last fall I submitted a story to Stupefying Stories. It nearly made it. They liked it but couldn't quite
fit it in. I am re-submitting when submissions re-open April 1st.
It would make me inordinately happy if all five of these stories got published. I am fairly optimistic about the four that are undecided. I could use a happy year.
Anyhow, I think I'll post a few more things before I resume my negligence...
