Damn it, missed picking up an Honorable Mention in the Geauga Parks District Nature Writers Poetry Contest. That is, I won the position, but completely forgot that tonight was the ceremony. Bad writer, no cookie.
To do penance, I did a quick rewrite (adding weirdness up front) to "A History of Lightning" and then sent it off to Apex Magazine.
And sent "Prince Wanted" off to Bard and Sages Quarterly.
And updated the bragging rights.
And now I'm wondering if I should just count the submissions I haven't heard from in over a year as dead, and resubmit elsewhere.
