A successful day

Things I have not done today:


Changed out of my pajamas

Prepared for my interview on Thursday


Things I have done today:

Finished a short story

Guzzled four cups of coffee and two cups of tea

Read a poem by Mary Oliver

Started to read Mr. Bridge by Evan S. Connell

Made several batches of chicken stock

Received a quick but polite rejection from an agent

Submitted a query letter to another agent

Sent an angry tweet to Marco Rubio


A successful day, I think.


Late in the day addendum:  Okay, no joke, I just received notice that one of my stories received an Honorable Mention in Glimmer Train’s Nov/Dec Very Short Fiction Contest. This is pretty damn exciting, even if Honorable Mention does not include payment or publication.
