This morning, I received another bit of good news, but I’m sworn to secrecy, at least for the next 24 hours or so, until it becomes official. All I can say is that the email made my day, especially since I was up at a quarter til four in the morning because I couldn’t sleep.
Actually, it gave me time to do the research on a short story submission due in about ten days or so. I’ve been struggling with this one until inspiration seized me, as it usually does, when I’m trying to get some rest.
I spent the early morning working Google into the ground, collecting links, beginning to create characters, and I was starting to outline the plot when the clock told me I only had an hour left before I had to leave for my day job.
The past few mornings, I’ve been working on a completely different story due on pretty much the same date. It’s a race to see if I can get two publishable short pieces of fiction done at the same time.
Anyway, I’ll let you know more as details come in. Oh, for those of you who have been concerned about my foray into the world of horror, this next story is more an adventure/fantasy.
That’s all I can tell you right now.
