Looks like we're in for a rainy day today...This makes me want to grab a pencil and spend the morning playing sudoku (which--I've been told--helps delay the onset of senility. I could use a brain recharging!)
I've got two stalled web-projects, so I'm feeling at loose ends. Meh. I should probably do some resume-sending. Research grad school programs that won't land me in a debtors' prison. Or write something I can actually sell, like a cookbook or a mystery novel. Or a mysterious and novel cookbook. Or whatever.
Okay, that's it for career-related angst.
I've started readings submissions for blossombones, and we're getting a lot of good stuff! I've still got a bit of reading to do, but I hope to start sending out some responses pretty soon.
In addition to some fab poetry, I'm also reading the new Elizabeth George novel Careless in Red. I hope it's better than the last one, which I found so depressing, I couldn't even finish reading it! (It is a RARE occasion that I actually abandon a book with no intention of returning...and What Came Before He Shot Her is one of them. Just couldn't read it anymore...)
I've got a pretty decent stack of unread books in my office. This makes me happy. Still, I have plans for a little bookstore jaunt at the end of the week. Can't wait!
I'm not a big shopper; I'm dead bored in a shoe store, but a book store--well, that's another story!
Also: Two poetry acceptances this week, from Mythic Delirium and Ghoti. Yay!
I also got a form-letter rejection for a short fiction piece, but that's okay...Am soldiering on...
