Three weeks ago (in this post), I realised I only had seven short stories out on submission. Wrists were slapped, stories were written, and now I have eleven stories out on submission. I must be really scary. Or at least I hope I am as I need to scare myself into writing another dozen or so. I just plucked that number out of the air, it isn't an actual 'I must write twelve stories' pact. I might write another four, I might write forty-four. Who knows! Life is one great big mystery. But there is one I really, really (and one more really) need to write and it must be scary.*
In those three weeks, I had a reprint accepted, which you'll all have noticed I got a little squee-happy about. The TOC is now online and all this happy dancing is great for my figure. Lois Tilton also reviewed the latest issue of The Journal of Unlikely Entomology over at Locus. Always good to have a story reviewed there. And I worked on one of my novels.
And in even more fabulous news, E Catherine Tobler had a story published in Clarkesworld. Clarkesworld!!! You should read it because it's awesome.
*note to self: don't just include spiders and feet.
