This was the week that was... Brain draining.
Oh my goodness, work expected me to actually work this week. I swear I can still hear the phone's buzzing in my ear. Seriously, not a second to process a single thought. And worse, I developed the let's call it the 'don't want to diet and am determined to eat chocolate because I deserve it' attitude and pretty much decided early on each day that I shouldn't force myself to write that night because I was soooooooo tired. Hope next week perks up... Maybe I should start consuming jugs of coffee or at least increase from my one cup for the day at 7:30.
Anyhow, I did manage to send out a few submissions (for my 10bythen twitter gang). I'm up to five now (Lightspeed, Thackery D. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities, The Zombie Feed, IGMS, Clarkesworld) or in other words, how to pick places guaranteed to reject and give me an easy five more submissions. And began work on a new short story that my ego is convinced is a winner, but my brain hasn't figured out how to write. It's there, just behind my eyeballs - does anyone have a hook to yank it out? Anyway we have a delicious title and an almost delicious first paragraph and that is it. I'm also up to 4,000 words of notes for my Mad Escapade project that I'm hoping will be a novella.
