Sale etc.

The phone and internet went down again this morning. Bleh. We are changing service providers for sure, because that's the third time this week. The first time there was some excuse. The last two times, not so much.

But! It's still a good morning, because Fictitious Force wants to buy my oldest story still in circulation, "A Six-Letter Word for Mom." Nice semi-pro that pays promptly, hurrah! And I still do like that story, or I'd have trunked it ages ago. And the story that's now the oldest in circulation is not so much in circulation as it is in rewrites, because one of my favorite markets liked it but wanted more of what I liked about it.

So that's all very good, I feel.

Also, I love it when people I know from the rest of the world pop up on my lj. It makes me happy.

Also, I love it not being August any more. August is the worst month in Minnesota. This August was all right, but in general, bleh. Sorry, stillsostrange, but I'm going to have to join the chorus of autumn lovers on your friendslist. Please don't kick me with stompy boots.
