I'm reminded of the old Garfield comic strips where he complains about it being Monday again. I agree completely. Another work week with too much to do and not enough time to do it. Another week to wait for responses on submissions. I got three rejections last week and found out this morning that my first page isn't a finalist in the Surprisingly Essential First Page Challenge. However, the finalists have been posted, so run over to Nathan Bransford's blog and vote for your favorite.

What else does this new week have in store? Writing, editing, reviewing, revising. I know, all the usual stuff, right? Well, there are a couple of other things I need to do that are far from usual. I need to give my self a crash course in ballroom dancing competition terminology and steps, and I need to learn more about bike messengers. Bizarre combination, huh? I love learning about unusual things, especially if I can easily find what I'm looking for. With these two topics, I'm having trouble finding what I need.

Everyone have a great week of writing! Check back on Thursday for more scintillating information about my writing life and writing in general.

Hi there!

I'm sorry about your notices. Those are tough, but my attitude has always been--"Hey I sent something out. And that was my goal."

PBS is showing ballroom dancing so I'm wondering if that would help you.
