Very late so short post

May 2, 2010

Queried Ann VanderMeer at Weird Tales, an act that sped up the rejection of G.B.  I guess that frees it up for other markets now.  It’s an odd fit anywhere.  I almost wonder if it’s more mainstream than it is SF, little glowing automaton and all.  It’ll fit somewhere…maybe.

In other news, the blue bar has inched a little more.  I’m still miles behind on grading and have some other significant distractions to deal with (particularly from church) and it will stay stagnant for a few more days, but I got the ball rolling.  I think it starts too slow, taking way too long to get my protagonist into space. Chapter 3 ends with a shuttle launch, so he’s headed up now.  I went ahead and split my first chapter into two, so the progress isn’t as miraculous as it sounds.  I really want to get to work on the next chapter, but duty calls.  At least I’ll be driven to get back to work.

But right now I’m driven to get back to sleep.  Night.

    Scott: I just stumbled across your…well, I guess I didn’t “stumble”, I’ve been a member of CODEX since there were only 20 of us. I’m intrigued by some of our “life parallels”…

    I’m a science teacher.

    I helped “test” the PRAXIS (sorry) for Pearson at Princeton.

    I write SF.

    I have a wife who’s WAY too beautiful for me.

    I love to eat.


    I’d like to chat sometime.

    Gotta go to church!

    I know you’ve been shopping G.B. around for a while now; it will find the right market eventually.

    I feel your distraction with the life stuff. I’m so focused on meeting short-term deadlines for school and other blah stuff that my writing suffers. Way to keep it rolling.

    Same thing happened to me; I queried her and the next day I got a rejection. It was pretty pleasant… basically just said the story wasn’t quite what they’re looking for at the moment. So, of course, I immediately submitted them another story. Now to wait another 2 months for a rejection… hehe.
