Submitting Stuff

Sent out one of my stories again today--finally, when I looked at Fantasy Magazine, the note that they were closed to submissions was gone. Then started to look for where to send others, and found a new anthology: Fat Girl in a Strange Land


So far, April was the only month I made my goal of ten submissions, though I almost filled up March's remaining slots, as I submitted more than ten in April.

What--I didn't post this yet? Well, I was interrupted. Someone broke into my car (3 windows) and stole the radio. I may end up driving to Wiscon without a radio--I fear scheduling that repair around a new job will be problematic. At least the auto glass people come to you.

And--while talking to police and the insurance company (over the phone, the police don't actually come to look at the scene of the crime), I got one more story submitted to a new market. Multitasking is my friend!

Next--got to clean the glass out of the car, since I'll have to drive to work in it as-is, and do some work on the yard in the shadow of my half-demolished garage. Perhaps I'll plan a story, with car thieves as the villains...the only punishment these guys will probably ever get is vicarious. *sigh*

I'm sorry about your car. :( but I approve of vicarious punishment :)

The car is currently covered with a camping tarp while we have thunderstorms and possible tornadoes in the neighborhood.

I guess at least I had a camping tarp! (I used the one that had been used as a painter's dropcloth at some point; not sure how I got one disfigured like that, but I figure it's less likely to be stolen than a new-looking one.

How stupid is it that I worry about people stealing a camping tarp?

I didn't come up with a story yet; my morning's headache came back and the noise of the shop-vac did not help brain function. Maybe tomorrow.

You are right to try to not worry too much about the tarp being stolen, but I certainly understand.

I hope you are feeling better + inspired (positively today)

Oh, I'm not too worried. Just barely enough to pick the oldest and ugliest tarp, so if it's stolen, it's not a big deal.

But it makes me mad that crap like that even needs to be part of my thought process.

D: I'm sorry to hear about your car being broken into! What absolute low lifes!

Good luck with the submissions.
