And a partridge in a pear tree…


1500 words
4 boxes packed
1 submission sent
and an email rejection from The Town Drunk.

So today we finally got started on packing. The problem with packing is not so much the actual packing of items into boxes (I like that part, it’s a bit like 3d tetris) but the sorting. Do we really want to move this book/stack of papers/thingamajiggit, or can we recycle/donate/etc it? Does this need to come with us on our drive, or does it go into boxes for the moving pods? *sigh* I do feel better that we’ve at least started packing instead of leaving it to the last possible moment. Four boxes doesn’t sound like a lot, but psychologically it’s much better than zero.

Sub#57 (to Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, my first sub there) and reject#46 (21 days, Town Drunk). Between getting the sub out, and writing 1500 words on Chapter 6, and all the packing, I feel like I’ve had a reasonably productive day.

Tomorrow night, if all goes well, I should make it to Samuel Delany’s reading. If you’re in the Seattle area, you should check it out…details are at:
