Yesterday I got two more responses to submissions. One was a rejection from the Triangulation Anthology. The best thing about the rejection was that it came with reasons! Yes, they gave me a few reasons of what they didn't like about the piece. They made some valid points, which will definitely help me in placing the story somewhere else. Once I make the changes, that is.
The other response I got, just a few minutes later, was an acceptance of my poem "Strange Seed" with Tales from the Moonlit Path. I'd really almost given up hope on this one, but it turns out I didn't get the original acceptance email a couple months ago. The poem'll be going up in the Valentine's Day issue. The email I got was the editor trying to get final approval before it went to be posted on the site. It should go up sometime in the next week or two, so I'll post a link when I have it.
What else am I working on? Not much. I've been a slacker. But I want to finish my story "Masked" this week or next--this one could also fit the Triangulation Anthology theme, so I may submit it there first. If nothing else, their critique will help me out.
I've also decided that while I will continue to work on my screenplay "Time Enough at Last," I'm also going to work on turning it into a novel. I read in a screenwriting book about someone else doing that--it's basically a 110 page outline with most of the dialogue already written. Plus I'd really be able to expand upon some themes that I just can't fit into a 2 hour movie. I'm not talking about just novelizing the screenplay, but just using that as the framework for a much more in-depth novel. Should be fun. If I can just find the time for it.
