Weekly writing check-in: the one with another dance competition

Yet another dance competition this weekend. I’m not sure why I end up so tired when I’m not the one who’s dancing. But there it is. I am. And I’m thinking that Oscar (to the left) has the right idea.

Also? He’s got the Chihuahua whale eye thing going on, so there’s that, too.

Still planning and working on the “noodle” project. Nice thing about both of these is that the one informs the other. I realize that’s vague. I hope to elaborate later.

And because I’m tired, I’m going to leave you with Oscar.

Weekly writing check-in: the one with oh never mind, I’m too tired

Last dance competition of the season last night. So. Tired. And I’m not even the one who danced. We rolled into the driveway at about 11:30 p.m., which I’ll have you know is way past my bedtime. And the dog’s bedtime. And the cat’s bedtime. Everyone was just a bit off their game due to this schedule change. If sleeping can be called a game, that is. In the case of our pets, I think it can.

Kept up with my course work. This is the last week of the Description class, and while I’ve enjoyed it, I’ll be glad not to have the extra homework to do. Otherwise, I made two submissions this week, had one rejection, and one story short-listed.

And now, I’m just going to go read or nap or something that doesn’t involve moving.

Writing Work:

  • Description class
  • Narrative Design class

Submissions:

  • Incriminating Evidence (reprint market)
  • The Life Expectancy of Fireflies

Weekly writing check-in: the one with the selfie from the end of the world

So we recovered from camping in enough time to attend the Starpower dance competition. One of these days, I’ll have a weekend with nothing scheduled. I’m looking forward to that.

I have managed to keep up in my classes (more or less). Even better, I have something in each category below this week. I’m so excited about the anthology. I had so much fun with that story (although I’m fairly certain you can’t call it a happy story–it is the end of the world after all). I’m also excited to have another vignette in Vine Leaves Literary Journal.

Writing Work:

  • Description class
  • Narrative Design class

Submissions:

  • A Measure of Sorrow (reprint market)
