Write 1 / Sub 1 Weekend Update

Always a bridesmaid...

We had two forensics (speech and drama) meets this week, and my squad scored second at both.

2nd!

I'm happy, of course, but we could have won both. We lost by a mere 5 points on Saturday (163-158). Granted, there were 14 teams so 2nd is pretty good.

What does this have to do with writing? Not much, only to explain I didn't spend much time writing. I did manage to finish edits on "Lullaby" a 2,500 word fantasy piece which I sent, appropriately, to Fantasy for quick rejection. It has since joined the ranks of slush piles everywhere.

Maybe I can get something done tonight...maybe.

Happy writing, folks.

Sorry for the delete. Had no idea I was logged under someone elses account.

Congrats on second place. That is still awesome!

2nd place is excellent. Good luck with Lullaby.

Thanks, Natalie.

Cate & Bobbie - I'm pleased with second, but I have higher expectations, of course (something has to motivate my students).

What does it take to be published by Fantasy? Do they even read the whole story, or just the first paragraph (or first line) before they hit REJECT? Anyhow, good job motivating your students into 2nd place!
