Still At It!

I mean, that shouldn't come as a surprise, one hopes. Yes, I received a rejection for Starconvoy, and no, no other agent has responded to it yet.

But that's okay. That's just a step on the path. The goal is still the same: make at least an approximation of a living off of writing. That requires rejection (lots of it), and heartache (no shortage there), and hard work.

So at the end of the day, come what may, there's always more hard work to be done.

Anyway, the writing continues. The goal I'm setting for this approaching weekend is to finish Novel 4's first draft. It'll be a lot of work (about 15,000 words/day), but it is certainly attainable. I've done it before, and I don't have anything else I need to do over the weekend, AND I have 3 continuous, uninterrupted days to do it! Those are the best days.

Sadly, after this there's just one more long weekend before the end of the year, which is still months away. But that's okay! That's okay. Just gotta keep at it.

Hopefully I get good news about the two short stories I sent in to the competition... I'll post them up here regardless, hopefully people like 'em. They're pretty fan-fic-ish, but I think they're pretty good regardless.

Hope you're having a great week, whoever/wherever you are!
