Look at the Trees

It feels as though something, some entity or power, is trying to keep me from attaining my goal. It's funny at times, because it really seems this way. Of course my sick mind makes it into a story. If it's not the day job sucking the energy from me, then it's the commute (MTA, or New York traffic). I used to be able to type some notes on my work PC, maybe belt out a scene or two, or three. But then they put some restriction on Office and I can't send out a certain size, then it has to be labeled external, but it still somehow doesn't work all the time. So I got creative and copy pasted (keep source format) into an email and then copy pasted (KEEP SOURCE FORMAT) back onto a Word document on my PC, or phone. Yeah, it worked, but now it was a hassle. And sometimes it's so busy, and so much energy is gone, that you don't want to do all these extra steps. Or you say, "Oh, I'll do it tomorrow," and the email gets lost, or you forget where you wanted…

So Much Editing!!!

Still here. Day job has been a bit crazy. Not as much writing getting done as i'd like. Don't know how people post so much on Twitter! :-D

The funny thing is it still will be edited some more before published. But it's all good. 

Well, gonna keep moving here. Talk soon.

Don't Stop

What a wonderful rainy Friday. Haven't been able to do much besides a few jottings of ideas and a scattering of scenes, but it's okay. The weekend is here and I plan to get down to it. I have submitted twice this week, got one rejection, and that's okay. 

In a way I'm actually looking forward to it. Not exactly rejections, but what the whole thing means. I plan to keep going, write another story while I wait to see what happens to the first, and send that out. Hopefully every day, if not every other day. But you can't stop. 

I was thinking this week past about who rejected Stephen King, or J.K. Rowling. How they must be kicking themselves in the rear. But it happens. When you send to a place, unless they just don't want the story, they may reject it because maybe at that time it doesn't fit in with a theme they have, or they are full, or zombies were last month, or anything. But it doesn't mean your story is bad. You just have to keep doing it. 

So while I…
