What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Friday Brain Death

That was a week. Really. And next week isn't looking all that much better. Caught between rigid regulations, conference room decision making, and other deadlines which have slipped. Didn't get everything done that needed to be done, and I'm out of hours. My guess is, I won't get caught up next week before I'm out of hours again. The bonus is that I know I have a good aid in one person, and I'm pretty sure I have another good aid in another person. That will be my saving grace (I hope).

This week, belatedly, I posted the full manuscript for critique. Unfortunately I didn't get to do at least one full rewrite. I'm sure there's a few howlers there in the last half of chapters. Only time will reveal them. So the question now, is what to do? Should I continue with the rewrites, work on short stories, and or start/restart another novel? Finding the time will be difficult for any of it, but I really need to get back to writing.

Writing links starts with a SFWA round up of "first novel sales" data (links to other articles). then there's Joshua Palmatier is pimping Benjamin Tate's new book, Well of Sorrows. Just getting the word out.
