[Part of a continuing series on where my fiction writing is at.]
Lots of stuff going on in life and work. So, this post is going to be particularly telegraphic. Here we go.
How They Did It at Kazansky Station—Good news here. Last time I posted, I was 2/3 of the way through my dreaded second draft of this story. Well, I finished that off. Even ran it through the third draft. And this weekend I plan to do a final draft and proofread it. Then, it’s off to publishers.
I’m really pleased with where this ended up, especially when I consider how displeased I was with the first draft. I just thought it was done a bit hastily and was sloppy overall. The third draft is much tighter and—most importantly—says exactly what I wanted it to say in the way I wanted to say it. And that’s all any writer can hope for.
The Man with Storms in His Eyes—This story got rejected and I haven’t had a chance to turn it around and resubmit it. I will do that this weekend.
AFTA—This horror novella got one more rejection, but it’s still with another publisher awaiting a decision. I hope it works out.
Breakpoint—This story is still out there with a magazine awaiting an answer.
That’s it! A short and sweet post. Just enough to keep you updated while I get back to the writing.
See you next time,
PS. I just realized I haven’t blogged for a month! I totally forgot my last blog post. I guess things HAVE BEEN HECTIC. Jeez. No more of that.
So, sorry, readers. I apologize. I will do my absolute best to make sure that doesn’t happen again or warn you if it does. So, look for the next post 2 weeks from today.
See you then.
