So. I have bad news about some pieces I submitted. But, that’s ok. I’m going to get myself a long nail and a hammer, so I can start a collection of rejections. Like Stephen King did. He mentioned this in his book On Writing.
So far, 2 of my stories I wrote recently were declined, the other 5 still being reviewed, and the rest ongoing.
Wonder what mom would think if I started hammering nails into walls in her house… 😵
Anyway I was derailed last night and kind of depressed, but this morning, things are already looking up. I saw 4 new calls for submission.
But first, my girl and I went for a bike ride after breakfast. I had brought her bike along from home because it fit in the wagon, but left mine back home. Mom has a bike here and I can just use hers, she said.
It was about 9:30 am and the sun and air already felt like an oven when we departed.
🔥 hothothot 🔥
But I/we persevered. Here is proof:
My girlie decided to come home 20 minutes later but I did another circuit, albeit a shorter one. My leg muscles feel tight, and I choose to take this as a good sign.
I am however looking forward to a cool shower now. 😥
Anyway. I think today is another indoor day. May as well get my sore butt back into my chair and hit the keyboard. The girl mentioned she wanted to bake meringue…you know I’ll report back on that later. 😉
