We interrupt the usual 'Somebody Else Saturday' post with an end of the month post because:
a) I forgot to do the round up of the month yesterday.
b) I am up to my chin with 'Somebody Else' this week ie I've spent the past 4 days researching my family history and I quit, quit, quit. I thought I'd done most of the legwork three or so years ago when I ordered birth/marriage/death certs etc and checked out census reports but I left all my research in such a mess it's been a bugger to set straight. And now I've done what I did before - quit. :D Weight lifted and all that. Of course, my office is strewn with paper and certificates. Shudder.
Anyway, let's get to that beast known as July.
Publications: 2 (Fantasy Magazine and EveryDay Weirdness)
Approx Word Count: approx. 8053 words
Total Word Count 2009: 131,014 words
Stories out in submission land: 17
WIP: The Horrifiques - 1045 words - letting it run around my head awhile.
This month, I finished the rewrite of 'The Drawing of Dolls', sent it out to agents, instantly hated my query letter, breathed a sigh of relief when I got a full request though fully aware the letter still sucks.
Wrote one short story - Somewhere Dead Things Fly.
Onward to August.
