Well, it's not all THAT quiet.

I should say my foremost concern the past few days has been getting together my collection proposal. That's why I haven't hit the short story routine. I had to reset "Silence is Golden" because it was typeset so long ago it wasn't in a format compatible with the version of Pagemaker I use now.

But I think I have everything together and I should drop the four stories I have picked in the mail to the editor tomorrow.

Albedo One returned "Body By Fisher". They said they prefer stories that are more character driven. I may send them "V.S.A", which came back today from Brutarian. I just dropped "Avatar" into the e-mail in-box at Lenox Ave.

I have to cover a baseball playoff game tomorrow in a town that's 90 miles from here. The good news is that it's only 17 miles from the cabin we own near Cedar Creek Lake. I plan to haul some stuff to the cabin and sleep overnight and then do some repairs and clean-up Saturday.

I'll come home Saturday night, and I guess, and then it's off to the mother-in-law's Sunday.

I was unhappy last night as I drifted off to sleep to feel some palpitations and realize I forgot to take my blood pressure medicine that morning. I got up and took it - I need to be more careful.

  1. I am in awe. I have never, ever gotten a response from Albedo One. I've subbed stories, sent queries, follow ups, queried my follow-ups and then emailed in last-ditch effort to elicit some acknowledgement. Nothing. Nada. Zip. After three stories vanishing like that, I wrote 'em off.

    Which is a shame, because it's a nice product and I'd like to place something there.
