WIP: Grim Glass Vein 17,249 (2nd draft); Theatre (rewrite - making a pretty plan and scribbling over old manuscript)
See the ugly '0' at the top of the post - first month this year that I haven't sold a story. Have I gone into panic mode? You betcha. I've a feeling the end of the year is going to be a bit quiet compared to the beginning (and the end of last year - which was a beautiful time). I'm deep in rewrite mode (both Grim Glass Vein and Theatre of Curious Acts) and as both are going to keep me very busy for 6 to 8 weeks, any short stories that are rejected between now and then will sit in my inbox until December.
Erm, what else happened last month. Olive sold out, I started a fan club, and Grim Glass Vein went from wondrous thing to less wondrous thing. And that's it.
