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.
