Busy As A Bee

Nice and bright over Leith Links this morning, and with a fresh breeze blowing in from the nearby North Sea, it made for not an altogether unpleasant morning for making my merry way to work. As soon as I got there I changed from merry to sad. Such is the way in here.

I caught up with my submissions log and chased a few publications up such as Wild Child, The Portable Muse and Adirondack Review. Unfortunately it also highlighted a few rejections I must also assume have been "received", such as The Blind Man of Cathkin Street by The Edge Magazine and 13 Magazine and A Bond of Faith rejected by One Story.

Wrote up next weeks TSDR blog entry so I can forget about it now until publication day. I should get ahead with this more often; I always seem to get caught out with the deadline.

I received an email from a friend about a freelance writing job that is extremely appealing. I put together an application package and sent it off from my home email address.

Finished drafting Under the Skin - I think that's it. I've thought about the components a short story requires and I'm sure I've got the meaning over. I like it - time to send it out, I think. Must be my fastest turnaround on a short story but this one just flowed so easily.
