Submitted Another Short Story!

Phew, two short stories in about as many weeks! That felt good.

Of course, they're both for silly little contests, but still! Writing is writing, and it's been years since I've had a short story published (still my only paid writing gig to date... *sigh*... damn shame the website that published it went into hiatus). So it was nice to flex those muscles again.

Plus, still waiting on my noble and amazing beta readers.

Well, can't wait forever. So today I'm going to tackle my 4th novel again, in between doing some airbrush painting and maybe a little baking (bread, mostly). It's pretty hot outside, but it's cool in the house where I work/paint/write, so that's okay. And I don't think I have anything else I need to do or anywhere I need to be, so that's helpful.

Now, the only question is to work on the next Tintian novel, or to switch gears for a little and work on The Spinward Expanse? The only problem with the Expanse is that, as a short story, it's already been published YEARS ago through a now-defunct app, and I'm not 100% sure I own the full rights to it. I could consult a lawyer, but that's a tonne of money and time for something that may never again see the light of day... pity, too. It was a good foundation of a story.

I could just rewrite it from scratch, of course. Different characters, updated tech, that sorta thing... hmmm. That's a thought.

Anyway! Enough rambling for today, and back to writing! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
