Weekly writing check-in: the one with Gatsby

GatsbyA fairly quiet week. There’s that one rejection, and the only reason I haven’t sent the story back out is there’s a market I’m looking at that opens next week. So, I’ll send it along then.

I’m in the last week of the Gatsby class, so I gathered up all the information I need for my essay.

My topic? Gatsby and the Great War. I even looked up the order of battle for 3rd Division (because clearly, the whole novel hinges on that). I was hoping it would write itself overnight, but that hasn’t happened.

So, that’s on the list for this coming week. Along with … other things.

Writing Work:

  • Revising Must Love Ghosts
  • Lit class: The Great Gatsby

Submissions:

  • None

Rejections:

  • Knight in the Royal Arms

Acceptances:

  • None

Publications:

  • None

  1. I bought The Great Gasby just because I hear it’s a classic. I have yet to read it though. Is it good?

  2. Well … it’s one of my favorite books, for what that’s worth. If you don’t want to dive into the text, consider the latest audio version with Jake Gyllenhaal as narrator. (http://www.audible.com/pd/Classics/The-Great-Gatsby-Audiobook/B00BWYDMK8)
