NEWSFLASH!

After almost a year of waiting for the response from the major New York publisher regarding my Margot Phoenix manuscript rewrite, the rejection came back today. I was going to post about other things, but I am too crushed now, so will postpone it for another day.

So much for a year and a half of work on this project....

NEWSFLASH!

The final story for Salt of the Air has been turned in, and I am free to get on to other work. Talking to my editor, the release date has been moved up one month to November 2005 which makes total sense.

In other news, the demolition of the old kitchen will begin on Monday, September 19, and until then we are in a sort of a construction lull, a limbo of grotesque inactivity, between having fully functional bathrooms and living quarters and a total wreck. The 3/4 bathroom is 99% done, the master bathroom (ah, such a lofty title to have for a bathroom the size of a closet!) is about 50% done, and the kitchen (a monstrosity of moldy decay) is about to be blasted away into oblivion. Meanwhile, money is draining away, and to say this is scary is an understatement.

Anna Tambour has put in an enormous amount of effort into creating a very important and useful page of Post-Katrina information. Please take a look and make use of this serious resource.

NEWSFLASH!

So much stuff happening that I did not have a moment to update here for weeks. For starters I was offline and without a computer for several agonizing days, due to my office wall being busted open to work on the tub installation. The remodel is heating up, and I think we are on our last straw in this mess of a house. And then, all the hell broke loose with Katrina, and my mind just went soft with horror, just trying to focus. Here is something I had to say in that regard, 100 Reasons Why Someone Might "Refuse" to Evacuate.

And earlier last month, there was that whole thing where a newspaper in London, UK published an article venturing a guess that I am John Twelve Hawks, and here is what I wrote about it elsewhere.

Today got a rejection from Analog. Not much surprise there, the story was sort of a long shot, but Stan does say to try him anyway.

In better news, on August 22, my reprint story "Mount Dragon" has been accepted by Escape Pod for an audio recorded flash fiction spot podcast. Will let you know when it goes up!

Finally, yesterday (or early this morning) I finished the first draft of the last story for the collection, and just need to proof it before turning it in to the editor. It was one of the most difficult things to write, since my mind was farthest from writing at this point in my life. I need peace, quiet, stability, a decent home, a working faucet in the kitchen, a functional toilet, for gosh sakes. I know, I should just shut up, what with all the people who have lost everything in the Gulf Coast. But, I've pretty much had very little or close to nothing all my life, so this remodel is like the culmination of things in so many ways. And, the money is running out....

I am sure there are more things I can say but I am so tired, and I am blanking out. Now, back to the rewite of ths story -- it is due on Saturday.

One day at a time....
