. . . from the perpetual place of not-deadness. So you still have to keep reading my stuff for just a little longer anyway.
Just wanted to update you on a few things that have been going on lately. I’ve been exceptionally busy, which may or may not be an excuse for not having posted regularly in a couple of weeks. Let’s get started.
1) The second issue of NEAT. is shaping up quite nicely! TM and I had a crazy amount of REALLY GOOD submissions, so much so that halfway through our editorial meeting we looked at each other and said, “We can’t accept everything” and then had a good panic about it. I expect the magazine to be out relatively soon, maybe even by the first of December. I can’t wait to share it with the world.
2) MY THESIS PROPOSAL WAS APPROVED THIS WEEK! Pardon my impromptu dance party in my office chair. Now I get to bug the Internet with more ramblings of plot, characters, reading lists, and general complaints about all things novel writing. I can hear your groans now. It will be fun! I promise!
3) I have an 8-page paper due next week that I’m procrastinating RIGHT NOW by typing these words.
So there you have it. My life this week in three bullet points. How is everyone else? Hanging in there?
PS. Check out TM Keesling’s Writing Experiments blog. It’s pretty cool and stuff.
