Wow. No posts since the 20th of August. That’s pretty bad. See, here’s the thing. I only like to post about writing related things, and I haven’t been writing. At all. Well, let me restate that. I actually did do some longhand during my prep period at school, but it was junk. Really I did […]

I haven’t been writing. I haven’t been posting either. Or reading other blogs. Or doing anything really. Even when I sit down to read a book, I can only manage a few pages before drifting off. I’m not sure what it is, but I have a feeling it is due to the start of my […]

Alrighty. Another 3 day rejection from GUD for my piece “Retired.” I sent GUD yet another story. This one (“Like Everyone Else”) is strictly literary with no horror elements to it (though it is a bit dark). I also sent “Retired” back out, this time to Fantasy Magazine. I have had one rejection from Fantasy […]

3 day rejection from Gud (“Go Back to Sleep”), so I sent them a different story (“Retired”). Hey, the worst they can do is reject it.
