Week of October 8-14

Three rejections this week. Two of them were on the same story -- fast turn-around -- I need to get that one sent off again. Also I got a couple of firm maybes. So okay then.

I have switched from Vicodin to SuperAdvil. It's clear that the SuperAdvil is not doing as much as the Vicodin was to relieve pain. It's also clear that the SuperAdvil is not doing as much as the Vicodin was to upset my stomach and make me dizzy, so on the whole, I think I'm at the point where this is the right call. And if I change my mind, the two can be used in conjunction, so that's no problem. Improvement. I'm at that annoying stage where I'm fidgety but any significant activity makes my head and the spot where once there were wisdom teeth ache and throb. Well. I won't stay here long, I imagine.

I owe a couple of people crits but have not gotten to them because I kind of wanted to stay focused on what they actually wrote. Maybe tomorrow.

Also there is a great deal of writing pressing on my head demanding to be done.

And chores. And errands.

Well. It's a good thing I'm in a pretty upbeat mood, eh? Because I have places to use that energy more or less as soon as it shows up.
