It’s progressing nicely.

Editing Update:

I’ve responded to all submissions prior to August 10th. I spent the weekend working on trying to shrink the pile of submissions, but it’s grown large and I’m making difficult decisions on what’s good vs. what’s great and that’s hard to do sometimes.I’ve been getting four or five submissions a day, and the quality of a lot of these stories amazes me. Expect the response times to lengthen a little bit. I may have to go to submission periods soon to keep response times down.

Sickness/Family Stuff:

We spent the weekend taking care of my oldest who seemed to have brought home a nice souvenir from Kindergarten: a lovely little stomach bug. It turned into a nice long weekend and I’m sitting home today helping take care of the boys and my own stomach. Yuck.

My son loves to draw and I helped him make a comic book last week. We scanned it on the computer and made an electronic file that we took to Lulu.com and formatted into a nice little glossy book. It came in the mail today and cheered him up a little. I wish this POD stuff would have been around when I was little. It’s a little expensive but it’s pretty neat he gets to have a book he made on the shelf with his other children’s books.

Sorry to hear you’ve all been poorly. My kids have had a nasty virus for the last week, so I can sympathise. I’m a little sleep-deprived as my daughter has been waking up at night because she couldn’t breathe properly. 😦

The comic book sounds great. What a great keepsake. I remember writing and illustrating a book for my little brother when we were kids. I wonder if he still has it… I’ll have to take a look at Lulu.com as my son is into getting into writing stories. He’d love a glossy book of his own.

Hope you feel better soon. 🙂

I’m sorry to hear about the stomach bug hitting the family. I hope you will all feel better in no time.

And that comic book idea is splendid! I like doing similar things with my son. 🙂
