Poll, and Cold

Thanks to everyone who voted in my poll, or gave me comments!

see the results!


I went to an early-morning networking gathering near my house; didn't find any job leads, but did find a friend I'd lost track of, and get to experience as much of a coffee-cupping as I wanted to (coffee flavor is right up there with liver and brussels sprouts). Then before the snow & cold got bad I went to the bank and grocery store.

I am cutting curtains, which is taking longer than I want it to take, in between writing and reading and other errands. They should be warm, and pretty.

And I got another rejection today. You know, I like the other kind of responses better!

Ya have a tie between the stories. Now what?? :)

Cool that you got to get back in touch with your friend you'd lost track of.

Bummer on the rejection, here's hoping the next one will be an acceptance!

I look at the people sponsoring the award, and guess which story to send. Not really different than before the poll. But it is good to get feedback, even if only from a few people.

As to the job search, I got an actual letter in snail mail acknowledging receipt of my resume! I've gotten only a handful of snail mail letters since January, and those were all rejection letters. A few more places sent e-mails, but most didn't respond at all.

The snail mail acknowledging receipt of your resume is nice. I wouldn't think they'd bother these days with snail mail much unless to reject, like you said. Fingers crossed they only did that for people they shortlisted.
