Sorry I’ve Been Away…

3 10 2008

Things have been unusually busy on the work and home fronts. No time to blog. My apologies. I hope you all are doing well. I’ve dropped by and read some of your stuff trying to keep up, but didn’t have time to respond to all of you like I normally would.

In order to keep my head above water, I did not get in any new writing on the WIP this week and have been unable to read through submissions. I’m hoping to start playing catch-up this weekend. My goal is 3000 words over the weekend (and I’m itching to go while dreading it at the same time — I feel anxious like I do if I haven’t worked out in too long).

I also plan on catching up on submissions. The Fall issue of Southern Fried Weirdness is coming together nicely, but slowly. I’m hoping for a late October publication date, but it may be November. There’s still a lot of room. I am looking specifically for more non-fiction/reviews, flash fiction, and poetry. 

I did receive some good news this week — my poem "Progress" was accepted by The Dead Mule School of Southern Literature  to appear sometime in November and Morrigan Books’s new e-zineThe Morrigan accepted my story "Stagehands"for their debut issue appearing later this month. I’m especially excited about having "Stagehands" published because its one of my personal favorites and I am ecstatic it found a good home.

Oh…and just because I needed something else to do…

I signed my 5-yr old up for the city’s basketball league and volunteered to be an assistant coach on his team. Coach T.J.? or Coach Mac? I haven’t decided yet…

Congratulations on your acceptances! That’s great!

Everyone seems really busy at the moment. It must be the time of year. I feel as if my feet haven’t touched the ground all week. πŸ™‚

I know what you mean. My day job’s taking all the mental energy I have at the moment. It should ease back to normal in a week or two.

Right now, my brain’s so fried and tired by the time I get home, all I can manage to write is the literary equivalent of a lecture from one of Charlie Brown’s teachers: “Wha-wa-wa-wa-wha-waa”

Coach T.J.

Those little ones are such “little men” on the field. I saw my Nephew when he was that age, running with his pals. He’s eleven now.

Glad you’re back.

I can’t wait to watch them run up and down the court. I’ve been working with my boy and he’s so proud he’s able to dribble. I’m just wondering how low the goals are going to be for these little guys and girls (it’s a coed team).

Congratulations on the poem and story acceptances. πŸ™‚

and good luck as assistant coach. That’s rather cool.

Thank you.

I think the coaching thing should be fun. It’s only two days a week. One day of practice and another for the games. So it should be manageable even with my schedule.

I know what you mean. My day job’s taking all the mental energy I have at the moment. It should ease back to normal in a week or two.

Right now, my brain’s so fried and tired by the time I get home, all I can manage to write is the literary equivalent of a lecture from one of Charlie Brown’s teachers: “Wha-wa-wa-wa-wha-waa”
