Weekly writing check-in: the one with all the rejections

So, I’m not sure it’s entirely fair to receive four rejections during the week of one’s birthday. Fair or not, that’s what happened this week. And that’s what happens sometimes when you send out a lot of work. Although I do think four rejections in one week is a new record for me.

But in good news, I sent three of those stories back out again. I also finished writing Must Love Ghosts, which is the last episode in the Coffee and Ghosts serial. I’m thinking a season two is totally possible, although actual story notions for it are a little murky at this point.
