Currently On My Plate

What I'm focusing on this month:
  • The rewrite of Phat Fairy, because I'd like to send that out to an agent soon.
  • Continuing to draft/plan Queen of the Fireflies.
  • A short story intended for the Codex Writers' Halloween contest.  Can't blog about it until the contest is over, heh, but wish me luck - last time I tied for second place, so I have high hopes for this time.
  • Catching up on the 1400 e-mails accumulated in my inbox and getting Fantasy Magazine sorted out finally.
  • Getting a backlog of stories out for consideration.
  • Getting my mother settled in Redmond.
  • Prepping to start teaching at the end of the month.
  • Picking up more freelancing work where I can.
  • Rock Band Beatles!!!!!!!
