It's been a slow writing week, but I keep on keeping on. Had a good insight on a story I started this week; maybe tomorrow I can actually write the rest of it. Or part of the rest. filkart  came over today and we actually practiced some songs. Which is good in many ways, but doesn't add to the word count.

Got a request for a rewrite of a story from one editor, which I did, and sent in. Got a nice, non-form rejection on a story and sent it out again.  Got a note from another editor that they're holding a story for consideration in their anthology.   It's nice to get something other than form rejections, though, of course, I'm still collecting those.

Sent out more resumes.  For the most part, if they don't hire you, you don't even get a form-letter rejection these days.  At least employers all accept simultaneous submissions!

I don't feel like congratulations are in order yet! But thank you anyway, and definitely thanks for the good wishes.

That's moving in a good direction! Would it be telling to say which ones?

There's some things I figure it's best not to make public. But neither is the story about the half-kitsune, though that one's out with my fingers crossed about it too.

That's fair. I have high hopes for seeing the half-kitsune story in print.

Well, at least the anthology is promising? Fingers crossed for your resume and your other story submissions.

*hugs*

It's hopeful! But it's also--well, I've fallen into a rhythm with the regular submissions. They go in the slush pile, I know that, and nearly all of the stuff in the slush pile gets rejected. And I know that too.

It feels different when I know there's more chance of success. I can't stay as relaxed about it.
