even negative attention is better than no attention at all

Sorry I haven’t been making many posts here in recent days, but I don’t really have any news to report, no revelations to inflict upon you, no judgments to pass.

I have several stories out at many publications. So many, in fact, that I’ve forgotten all of them and who is considering which. No matter. I just keep on keeping on.

I did get one rejection this week (so far). It was for one of my Fathers and Sons stories, “The Lonely Road,” and it was from Cream City Review. I thought the submission was a stretch, but I went for it anyway. But as I said in the title, even a rejection is better than the prolonged silence I’ve been getting.

So what’s happening in your life, literarily or otherwise?

    I’m finally, FINALLY making some headway with my new book. Good grief, what struggles I’ve been having. Remind me, why we do this again?

    Yes, could I perhaps borrow some of that negative attention? I’m exiting Irkville and entering Peevetown. Running out of gas, may have to get out and push.

  3. I’ve just been considering if I want to continue the agent hike with the current book or just go the e-book route…while working on the new book. That, and it wasn’t 105 degree in Texas this past weekend, so…I actually got out and juggled a bit, although it was a bit too windy.

    I totally agree that sometimes a rejection is better than silence. Sometimes that lingering is the toughest thing.
